Non-surgical facelift Santa Monica CA
What is a Non-Surgical Facelift ?
The Non-Surgical Facelift uses the power of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), where the stem cells and growth factors are taken from your blood.
The process involves taking blood from your own body, then separating out your platelets using a centrifuge. Your own platelets and growth factors are then injected back into specific areas of your face to provide you with the results you are looking for.
Since the procedure involves using your own platelets, the entire treatment is safe and non-invasive.
What Does PRP Treatment Involve?
- THE FIRST STAGE of the process is to inject small amounts of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. The HA filler replaces the skin’s natural glycosaminoglycans that hold water like a sponge and give volume and shape to the face, but are lost as part of the body’s aging process. This initial injection of hyaluronic acid is the precursor to the ultimate desired shape and form.
- THE SECOND STAGE is the refining and polishing of the sculpting process, which ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you.
- THE THIRD AND FINAL STAGE of the process is to harness and use the growth factors from PRP to stimulate the unipotent stem cells in your skin and facial tissue.
The Non-Surgical Facelift is effective for:
- Restoring natural beauty and shape
- Loss of volume to the face
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Tear trough hollows
- Dark circles
- Smoker’s lines
- Temple hollows
- Crepey skin on the neck and décolletage area
What is Microneedling ?
Microneedling is used to treat finelines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and boost collagen. This procedure is minimally invasive and offers quick and long lasting results.
Microneedling involves a using a handheld device with tiny needles attached to it that will puncture the outerlayer of the skin as it moves along your face.
The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and when done right, can show real benefits to your skin.
How Does it Work?
The Non-Surgical Facelift is a procedure designed for people who want younger and healthier skin without having to go through surgery. The process involves taking hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, along with growth factors and unipotent stem cells that are drawn from your blood to replenish your skin.
It has been known for years that unipotent cells lie idle in our skin, and they are used in the healing process when we get an injury such as a wound or burn. This latest research has enabled doctors to stimulate these stem cells to produce new tissue. The process involves a series of injections into selected areas of the face to reduce wrinkles and improve the quality of the skin.
A Natural Non-Invasive Procedure
We are now able to use platelet-derived growth factors from the patient's blood that helps the unipotent stem cells give you a younger look and fresh skin. On the safer side, the activation of the platelet cells is done using a natural process.
To understand the Non-Surgical Facelift process, imagine when the skin heals itself from a cut or wound and a yellowish substance is formed as a protective crust. That yellow substance contains ‘Fibrin Matrix’ – a natural PRP as it has the right growth factors to activate stem cells which ultimately regenerates the skin.
Can I go to work after having the Non-Surgical Facelift treatment?
Most people go to work the day after they get the Non-Surgical Facelift treatment. Other than a few needle marks that only you can see, there is typically no other negative indication from the procedure.
Is Non-Surgical Face Lift safe, and what are the side effects?
Unlike other face lifts, a Non-Surgical Face Lift is minimally invasive, and it significantly rules out the risks that come with ordinary surgical procedures. Also, this procedure uses your own blood, which removes major risks and complications.

How many Non-Surgical Face Lift treatments are needed?
The recommended number of treatments depends on your skin. We will determine this during your consultation with us. Most commonly, 2 treatments that are spaced a month apart are needed to show visible results.
What is the recovery period?
Non-Surgical Face Lift is often called Lunchtime Therapy, because it only takes about 60 minutes. Some patients may experience redness or minor bruises on their skin after the treatment, but these are fully healed within a week. It is recommended to keep your doctor updated on any such conditions.
