Procedure in which pretreated concentrate from your own blood plasma rich in platelets (PRP – platelet rich plasma) is injected into varying depths at selected areas of the skin. Known under different names – plasmolift, plasmоtherapy, „vampire“ lifting – the method has entered aesthetic medicine over the past few years, but has been used since the 1980s to treat chronic trauma, in severe heart and abdominal surgery.
The therapy achieves a drastic rejuvenating result thanks to the ability of our own body to self-regenerate. Platelets in our blood have an important function to stimulate the creation of new cells and thus restore all skin structures, including blood vessels, connective tissue, hair follicles and other tissues.
The secret of the striking rejuvenating effect of the procedure lies in the ability of our own body to recover itself – platelets in our blood have an important function to stimulate the growing of new cells and thus restore and regenerate damaged blood vessels, epithelial, connective, muscle, nerve and other tissues.
The plasma is extracted from the patient’s venous blood by centrifugation. The resulting platelet concentrate, rich in nutrients, vitamins, hormones and proteins, is injected back into areas of the skin where revitalizing action is needed. Plasmolifting is a proven scientific method to improve skin elasticity and strength and strengthen the vessels. It is extremely effective both for wrinkle, dark circles under the eyes and scars removal, and for delaying skin aging processes. The results of patients with chronic hair loss are amazing which makes it preffered procedure by men.
