A ‘vampire facial’ may sound gruesome, but the results it produces are nothing short of beautiful. PRP facelifts are available at Nease Cosmetic Surgery, under the guidance and direction of triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Carey Nease. His offices serve the residents of Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville and the surrounding areas of northern Alabama.
What is a PRP Facelift?
A PRP facelift, often referred to as a “vampire facelift,” is a cosmetic procedure designed to produce results similar to those provided by a conventional facelift. The difference is that, with a PRP facelift, the results can be obtained much more quickly and without surgery.
The patient’s own blood is used (hence the “vampire” nickname) and is combined with other techniques for rejuvenation of the skin. PRP can be used in a multitude of ways, including face and hand rejuvenation, after microneedling and laser treatments, and to promote new hair growth.
How Much Does a PRP Facelift Cost in Huntsville, AL?
Currently, the cost for a PRP facelift performed at Nease Cosmetic Surgery is between $500 and $1,500. The cost of a PRP facelift will vary, depending on the extent of the treatment needed to achieve the desired outcome as well as other contributing factors that may affect the total cost. During your initial consultation, your customized treatment plan will be developed and an accurate cost can be given to you at that time.
Most insurance companies will not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we strive to keep patient procedures as affordable as possible. We offer complimentary consultations along with several payment options, including cash, major credit cards and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of a PRP Facelift?
There are numerous benefits associated with a PRP facelift and most patients are extremely pleased with the results. Some common benefits include:
- Virtually no downtime needed; minimal pain
- Safe, effective, and quick procedure time
- Triggers the body’s natural production of collagen
- Smoothes and tightens the skin, improves skin texture, and diminishes wrinkles
- Enhances self-image and boosts self-confidence
Am I a Good Candidate for a PRP Facelift?
If you’re a healthy adult without severe skin issues, you’ll likely be a good candidate for a PRP facelift. Candidates who are dealing with crepey skin issues tend to experience the most benefits from a PRP facelift.
During the initial consultation, the doctor will help you make sure your expectations are in alignment with what’s possible and whether a PRP facelift is the best option to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. If not, he can help you explore other possible alternatives that may serve you better.
What is PRP Facelift Recovery Like?
There is very little recovery time needed following a PRP facelift. The procedure takes between 30 minutes and an hour to perform and most patients can return to their normal routine the next day.
You may experience some tenderness and redness on the day after your treatment, but by the third day, these symptoms should be significantly diminished.
For best recovery results, be sure to read and closely follow any post-treatment instructions you may be given following your PRP facelift procedure.
