The Angel™ Face Lift

The Angel™ Lift has been developed using techniques of combining very concentrated blood components, to give a rejuvenated effect using the Angel™ Blood Separation System.

Background

In 2011 it was rumoured actress Angelina Jolie had received Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in her face to boost collagen and suddenly everyone wanted to know about this new treatment!

PRP is now a well-established cosmetic treatment and has been referred to in the past as either the ‘Dracula or Vampire Treatment’, but with advances in the technology using the Angel™ blood separation system it is now readily referred to as ‘The Angel™ Lift’ and is often combined with laser skin resurfacing to achieve truly spectacular skin rejuvenation.

The Angel™ system uses your own blood which contains concentrated platelets that are rich in essential growth factors that stimulate tissue repair and collagen formation waging war on wrinkles and damaged skin.

Why is the Angel™ system considered to be the best?

There is a known direct clinical correlation between the amount of tissue growth factors and platelet concentration and extensive research from the Sieshin Regenerative Medicine Institute – the global leaders in PRP therapies -corroborate that a platelet concentration level of 3-4x baseline is required to achieve a result.

The state-of-the-art Angel™ system processes a measured amount of blood and yields a platelet concentration which is titrated to meet this gold standard requirement, which many other PRP systems simply cannot achieve. The Angel™ system is also a totally closed, sterile hospital system and, as the treatment is only performed by our qualified doctors who are specifically trained in this technique, you can be assured of receiving a very high quality and clinically safe procedure.

Put simply PRP treatments using the Angel™ system are the most concentrated effective treatments on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my skin look like after the treatment?

You may experience slight swelling immediately after the treatment, which will usually disappear in 24 hours. Bruising at the site of injections can be seen for 1-2 weeks post PRP Therapy. This is easily covered with make-up.

How should I care for my skin after the treatment?

  • Keep the treated area free of oil based products, heavy cosmetics and skincare for at least 4 hours post treatment.
  • Avoid touching the face for at least 2hrs post treatment, to allow injection sites to heal and avoid infection.
  • Avoid exposure to sunlight, rigorous exercise, saunas, hot baths and excessive amounts of alcohol post treatment.
  • The treated area will feel tender for a few days.
  • It is normal to experience swelling for 24-48hrs. Use cold packs on the treated area (10mins on then 10mins off) to reduce swelling if required.
  • Sleeping with your head slightly elevated can also help to reduce swelling.
  • It is normal to experience bruising for 1-2 weeks after your treatment. This can be covered with makeup if required.
  • Avoid long-haul flights for 1 week post treatment.

How long before I start to see results?

Visible results may take 3-6 weeks to appear and continue for up to 6 months. A series of at least three treatments is recommended for best results, with 6-8 weeks in between treatments. A series of 3 treatments can yield results for up to 2 years.

How can I maximise the results?

To maximise results the client must adhere to post-treatment care recommendations for best results.
Depending on the individual, other treatments may be recommended to enhance results such as Ablative or sub-ablative laser treatments.
