PRF Liquid Facelift

Injections of PRF into areas of sagging and volume deficit results in regeneration of the face for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Smitherman most commonly performs these injection with a blunt tip cannula to reduce bruising, and pain from needle pokes. This treatment is subtle, and regenerative as opposed to filler which creates sustained volume of the treatment area.

Common Areas:

  • Tear Trough (undereye)
  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw Line
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Line
  • Crow’s Feet

PRF Hair Regeneration

PRF injections into the areas of the scalp where the hair is thinning, or requires extra nourishment for growth.

PRF Growth Factor Solution

With every treatment, Dr. Smitherman takes a portion of the PRF and puts it into a 1 ounce spray bottle. The PRF inside of the spray bottle will continually release growth factors from your own PRF into the liquid component of the PRF and added sterile saline solution for up to 10 days. You can spray these additional growth factors onto your skin after cleansing up to 3 times per day to bolster your in office treatment. Dr. Smitherman recommends locking in the PRF Growth Factor Solution with moisturizer and sunscreen after every application.

The benefit of this all natural filler is that it is unlikely that you will have an immune reaction as this is your own blood being injected back in. The other benefit is that this substance is very regenerative for your lips! You can expect this filler to last about 2-4 months.

Cost: $250

Hormones are an essential part of anti-aging medicine. Healthy levels of human growth hormone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid, and testosterone can help to improve the skin quality, and aesthetic of a person.

Growth Hormone Therapy: Growth hormone is also known as the “Hollywood Hormone” due to its strong anti-aging properties. Dr. Smitherman utilizes a peptide called Sermorelin that promotes growth hormone production in your body. As we age, our growth hormone declines leading to the typical signs of aging: loose skin, lose of muscle mass, fat gain around the belly, and decreased cognitive function. Sermorelin helps your body to release more growth hormone to improve these signs of aging.
