Plasmolifting

Human blood contains great potential that can activate all the resources of the body needed to fight aging, and modern scientific developments make it possible to reveal it in the best possible way.

Plasmolifting is a therapeutic and rejuvenating injection procedure that involves the subcutaneous injection of platelet -rich plasma of the patient’s own blood.

The first experiments with the use of plasma were conducted in the United States a few decades ago, and to date, plasmolifting (English name - Platelet -Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP therapy) is one of the major areas of local anti -aging medicine.

The author of a variant of this technique, a scientist, initially developed it for use in maxillofacial surgery, however, further clinical trials confirmed the effectiveness of plasma extraction in trichology and cosmetology.

Instructions for plasmolifting

Thanks to the injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the body receives a strong stimulus to begin the natural anti-aging process. The biostimulatory properties of PRP ensure the formation of new skin cells from stem cells, normalize metabolic processes, the formation of new hyaluronic acid molecules in the skin, improve blood circulation, and increase the production of collagen and elastin by fibroblasts.

With the help of plasmolifting, you can:

  • Improves the appearance and turgor of the skin
  • Removes fine wrinkles and stretch marks
  • Gives a significant lifting effect
  • Cures acne and some other dermatological diseases

In addition, injections are effective as a remedy for hair loss, for the prevention of periodontitis and for eliminating bleeding gums.

How is Plasmolifting done?

release of plasma from the blood for rejuvenation

The procedure consists of several consecutive steps. First, blood is taken from the patient's veins - depending on the current condition of the skin and the expected result, it will take from 20 to 120 ml.

Then the blood is placed in a special centrifuge, where, during rotation, it is divided into three main components:

  • Platelet -poor plasma (PPP)
  • platelet -rich plasma (PRP) and
  • Erythrocytes.

In the final stage, the resulting PRP is injected into the problem skin area. The injection technique for plasmolifting resembles mesotherapy - a large number of injections are performed (on average, one for every 2 square cm of skin).

This procedure takes about an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis. No anesthesia is required, however, patients with sensitive skin may require local anesthesia. The small bruises that occurred at the injection site disappeared after a few days.

The standard course of plasmolifting consists of 2 to 4 procedures performed at 2-3 week intervals. The results of the PRP injection do not appear immediately-it will take about 2 weeks for the first positive changes to appear.

Further support procedures are aimed at enhancing and consolidating the impact, which lasts at least a year. At the same time, Dr. Akhmerov considers it the best option to run 2 full courses per year.

Plasmolifting prices. How much does the procedure cost?

By itself, plasmolifting requires no significant cost - the patient himself acts as a "medicine" provider, the centrifuge does the work of cleaning it, and any cosmetic specialist trained in mesotherapy injection techniques can handle the introduction of the resulting PRP.

The main component of the cost is intellectual property (the procedure is patented and is the only possible option for PRP injection).

The final price for plasmolifting consists of the number of areas treated (face, hands, neck, décolleté), as well as the respective areas.

Alternatives and additions

This procedure combines well with other anti -aging techniques - in particular laser re -coating, ideal for preparing the skin for plastic surgery and improving its appearance during the recovery period.

It is important to understand that in the case of deep wrinkles and significant loss of skin elasticity ("floating" oval face), plasmolifting will be ineffective - in this case, a contour or facelift will give a better effect.

Contraindications

This procedure is not recommended to be performed in the presence of the following contraindications:

  • Pregnancy and lactation.
  • The inflammatory process in the proposed injection site.
  • Infectious diseases, diseases of the immune system and any disease in the acute stage.

In addition, as a general rule, plasmolifting is not performed for patients under 25 years of age.
