Plasmotherapy is a relatively new aesthetic procedure, which uses the potential possibilities of our cells to restore changes in the skin.
It’s a part of the procedures in the spectrum of the so-called physioregulated medicine, which establishes its method for using its own reserves of the organism to restore damaged cells.
The method has been used for years in medicine to restore tendons, improving the functional activity in joints, and for faster healing of wounds. In recent years plasmotherapy became widely applied in aesthetic medicine – to correct visible aging scars and thickening of the hair.
Plasmotherapy, also known as “vampire” lifting or plasmolift, is a relatively new aesthetic procedure, which uses the tissues’ potential regenerative abilities in already appeared skin changes. It is an aesthetic procedure, which makes improvement of the skin’s tone and turgor possible, and to reduce visible lines and wrinkles and to tighten the skin.
In plasmotherapy the problem zones – face, neck, neckline and arms are injected with plasma containing enriched growth factors. This leads to a stimulation of the production of new structural cells of the skin, which makes it fuller and firmer.
Nature and effect of the procedure
In plasmotherapy, plasma is injected in the outer layers of the skin – a product, which is developed from our own blood. In order to carry out the procedure, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient’s veins and is centrifuged in order to separate the blood cells. It becomes plasma, which is rich in platelets, known as PRP – platelets rich plasma.
Injecting the PRP in the outer layers of the skin leads to the platelets releasing substances with an active biological effect called “growth factors” (EGF, PDGF, IGF, KGF, VEGF).
These substances activate the skin’s cells, which make a new collagen and elastin. As a result the production of new collagen, elastic fibres and hyaluronic acid is increased. That way visible aging scars are corrected – sagging, decreased turgor and wrinkles, and the skin becomes fuller, more elastic and firm.
Thanks to the procedure the process of forming new blood vessels in the skin is activated, which improves the skin’s microcirculation. The effect is evening of the tan, visibly freshening of the skin, reducing puffiness around the eyes and dark spots.
Plasmolift is used for:
- Correcting visible lines and fine wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, neck, neckline and arms
- Firming the skin of the face – reducing sagginess, improving the tone and texture
- Reducing dark circles and bags around the eyes
In which cases is plasmolift suitable?
Plasmolift is suitable for people of all age groups, in whom aging scars have been established.
The procedure’s effect on the skin varies depending the age and the lifestyle of the patient. With younger skin an overall freshening and toning is achieved, as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. With advanced aging, as a result of the procedures the visible wrinkles on the entire treated area are reduced, and the skin becomes visibly firmer and revitalized.
The procedure is suitable for people suffering from allergies and cannot or do not want to apply substances that have been made synthetically on their skin.
Plasmolift is an excellent choice for people who are looking for natural ways for rejuvenation.
In order to achieve optimal results it is required that you do three consecutive therapies in an interval of 4-6 weeks.
The first results are seen in 3-4 weeks after the first procedure, and the changes of the skin become more visible in the following months.
The coming changes are: visibly firmer skin, brighter and fresher, while the most significant changes and in the zone around the eyes, and the dark circles are reduced.
To keep the effect supporting procedures are required to be done every 6 months.
