A particularity of plasmolifting, which it is, we will see a little further on, is that its action is based on the activation and restoration of the patient's own resources. After the procedure, the interaction of the regenerating, metabolic and immune systems takes place, and without the penetration of foreign substances and antibodies into the body. And this eliminates the risk of allergic reactions and rejection of introduced particles.
The essence of the rejuvenation technique
The rejuvenation technique using blood plasma was developed by plastic medicine academics and officially patented in 2003. Plasmolifting, as a method of PRP therapy, has very recently become widespread in cosmetology. Initially, the technique was used to restore bone tissue, and its beneficial effect on the epidermis was discovered quite by accident and described by the developers of the method as a side effect. At present, plasma lifting is the only rejuvenation technique, after which there are no complications and which has no side effects.
The essence of the method lies in the introduction of plasma obtained from the patient's blood into the problem area of the skin. Facial plasmolifting begins with obtaining materials to perform the procedures. Blood is drawn from a vein just before the manipulation. The blood undergoes special treatment, as a result of which red blood cells are separated from the plasma and extracted from it. Then the material is enriched with collagen and elastin. All these manipulations do not take more than 15 minutes.
The cosmetic plasmogel obtained in such a simple way, after being injected under the skin, acts as a building material. The record number of platelets, collagen and fibrin it contains helps replace obsolete fragments of the epidermis and stimulates the skin to create new cell chains, the production of fibroblasts and its own hyaluronic acid, which are responsiblerejuvenation and restoration of the epidermis. Platelet-enriched plasma is used as a restorative material not only in cosmetology, but also in sports medicine, trauma, and its effectiveness has been proven over time.
Indications for the procedure
The spectrum of effectiveness of plasma injections is very wide. This method of skin rejuvenation and restoration is used for problems such as:
- modification of the contours of the face, loss of elasticity and volume of the cheeks;
- the appearance of deep wrinkles due to age or facial features;
- increased pigmentation of the epidermis;
- decreased elasticity of the skin, including the eyelids, chin, neck and décolleté;
- the appearance of scars as a result of improper acne treatment or after surgery.
To restore the skin on the body, after a change in weight or as a result of hormonal changes in the body, laser plasma lifting is most often used, but the injection method of the procedure is not excluded. This technique is widely used to improve the condition of hair, and in dentistry - when implanting implants and treating the gums.
Preparation for the procedure and recovery period
No special preparation is required for the skin rejuvenation injection. Procedures such as plasma lifting or biorevitalization do not involve the use of anesthesia or keeping the patient in the hospital. The surface of the skin, at the injection sites, is subjected to application anesthesia, which excludes the appearance of a pain reaction.
Plasmolifting, both before and after it, does not cause any discomfort and does not alter the patient's usual rhythm of life. A slight swelling of the skin surface, which occurs in very rare cases at the injection sites, disappears after 2-3 hours.
To achieve the desired anti-aging effect, at least 4 procedures are required, the interval of which should be at least 7 days. The end result is influenced less by the skill of the cosmetologist than by the condition of the client's epidermis at the time of treatment, their age and general health. When rejuvenating with the help of plasma lifting, it is recommended to exclude stressful conditions, alcohol consumption, smoking, to minimize the negative impact of the environment on the skin, and not to usedecorative cosmetic products containing aggressive substances.
The positive effect is noticeable after the first cycle of injections. But in order to consolidate it and ensure a long period of validity, it is necessary to complete the entire course, recommended by a specialist, and strictly follow all his advice. Positive dynamics are observed within two years after plasmolifting, but only if the patient does not expose the skin to negative influences, for example, does not abuse the solarium, conducts supportive procedures and leads a healthy lifestyle.
