A distinctive feature of plasmolifting, which it is, it will become clear a little later, is that its action is based on activating and restoring the patient's own resources. After the procedure, the interaction of the regenerative, metabolic and immune systems occurs, 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 blood plasma rejuvenation technique was developed by academics of plastic medicine and officially patented in 2003. Plasmolifting, as a method of therapy with PRP, has become quite widespread in cosmetology recently. Initially, the technique was used to restore bone tissue, and its beneficial effect on the epidermis was discovered by chance and described by the method developers as a side effect. At present, plasma lifting is the only rejuvenating technique with no complications and no side effects.
The essence of the method lies in introducing the plasma obtained from the patient's blood into the problematic area of the skin. The facelifting starts with obtaining material to carry out procedures. Blood is drawn from a vein just before manipulation. Blood undergoes special processing, as a result of which red blood cells are separated from the plasma and removed from it. Then the material is enriched with collagen and elastin. All these manipulations take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
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 contained in it helps to replace obsolete fragments of the epidermis and stimulate the skin to create new cell chains, the production of fibroblasts and its own hyaluronic acid, responsible for the rejuvenation and restoration of the epidermis. Platelet-enriched plasma is used as a restorative material not only in cosmetology, but also in sports medicine, traumatology, and its effectiveness has been proven over time.
Indications for the procedure
The spectrum of efficiency of plasma injections is very wide. This method of skin rejuvenation and restoration is used for problems such as:
- change in facial contours, loss of elasticity and volume of the cheeks;
- the appearance of deep wrinkles of an aged nature or as a result of facial features;
- increased pigmentation of the epidermis;
- decreased skin elasticity, including eyelids, chin, neck and décolleté;
- the appearance of scarring 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 gums.
Procedure preparation and recovery period
No special preparation is needed to inject skin rejuvenation. Procedures such as plasma lifting or biorevitalization do not involve the use of anesthesia or keeping the patient in a hospital. The surface of the skin at the injection sites is subjected to the application of anesthesia, which excludes the appearance of a painful reaction.
Plasmolifting, before and after, does not cause discomfort and does not alter the patient's normal pace of life. A slight swelling of the skin surface, which occurs in very rare cases at injection sites, disappears after 2-3 hours.
To achieve the desired anti-aging effect, at least 4 procedures are needed, the interval between which should be at least 7 days. The final result is influenced not so much by the skill of the cosmetologist, but by the condition of the client's epidermis at the time of treatment, their age and general health. During rejuvenation with the help of plasma lifting, it is recommended to exclude stress conditions, alcohol consumption, smoking, to minimize the negative impact of the environment on the skin and not to use decorative cosmetics that contain aggressive substances.
The positive effect is noticeable after the first course of injections. But to consolidate it and guarantee a long period of validity, it is necessary to complete the entire course, which is recommended by an expert, and strictly follow all his advice. Positive dynamics are observed within two years after the plasmolifting, but only if the patient does not expose the skin to negative influences, for example, not abusing the solarium, performing supportive procedures and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Estimated prices for plasma lifting
The cost of the plasma survey depends on which part of the body will be carried out and what problems need to be resolved in each specific case.
