Human blood contains a huge potential that can activate all the pores of the body that are necessary 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 involving the subcutaneous injection of platelet-rich plasma from the patient's own blood.
The first plasma experiments were performed in the United States several decades ago and to this day, plasmolifting (Platelet Rich Plasma therapy) is one of the mainstays of local anti-aging medicine.
The authors of this variant, the scientists, originally developed it for use in maxillofacial surgery, however, further clinical trials have confirmed the effectiveness of plasma lifting in trichology and cosmetology.
Indications for plasmolifting
Thanks to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, the body receives a strong stimulus to begin natural anti-aging processes. The biostimulatory properties of PRP ensure the formation of new skin cells from stem cells, the normalization of metabolic processes, the formation of new hyaluronic acid molecules in the skin, the improvement of blood circulation and the increased production of collagen and elastin by fibroids.
With the help of plasmolifting, you can:
- Improve the appearance and firmness of the skin
- Get rid of fine wrinkles and stretch marks
- They provide a strong lifting effect
- It cures acne and a number of other dermatological conditions
In addition, injections are effective in treating hair loss, preventing periodontitis and eliminating bleeding gums.
How is Plasmolifting done?
The process consists of several successive steps. Initially, blood is drawn from the patient's vein - depending on the current condition of the skin and the expected result, 20 to 120 ml will be needed.
The blood is then placed in a special centrifuge, where during the rotation it is divided into three main components:
- Platelet-poor plasma (PPP)
- platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and
In the final stage, the resulting PRP is injected into problem areas of the skin. The injection technique for plasmolifting is similar to mesotherapy - a fairly large number of injections are performed (on average, one for every 2 square centimeters of skin).
The procedure takes about an hour and is performed in outpatient clinics. Anesthesia is not required, however, patients with sensitive skin may need local anesthesia. The small bruises that appear at the injection sites disappear after a few days.
The typical course of plasmolifting consists of 2 to 4 procedures performed at intervals of 2-3 weeks. The effect of PRP injections does not appear immediately - it will take about 2 weeks for the first positive changes to appear.
Further supportive procedures are aimed at strengthening and consolidating the result, which lasts at least one year. At the same time, Dr. Akhmerov considers it the best choice for conducting 2 completed courses per year.
Plasmolifting prices. How much does the process cost?
By itself, plasmolifting does not require significant costs - the patient himself acts as the supplier of the "drug", the centrifuge performs its cleaning task and any cosmetologist trained in the technique of mesotherapy injections can handle the introduction of the resulting PRP.
The main cost element is intellectual property (the process is patented and is the only possible option for PRP injections).
The final value for plasmolifting consists of the number of areas to be treated (face, hands, neck, décolleté), as well as the area of each.
Alternatives and additions
The procedure combines well with other anti-aging techniques - especially laser rejuvenation, suitable 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 ("extra" oval of the face), plasmolifting will be ineffective - in this case, the contour or facelift will offer a much better result.
The procedure is not recommended for the presence of the following contraindications:
- Pregnancy and lactation.
- Inflammatory processes in the area of the proposed injections.
- Infectious diseases, diseases of the immune system and any diseases in the acute stage.
In addition, plasmolifting is generally not performed in patients under 25 years of age.
