Plasma lift treatment or PRP therapy is a modern method of skin rejuvenation, which is based on the body's ability to self-renewal. PRP therapy involves the subcutaneous injection of the patient's own blood plasma. Special processing technology enriches plasma with platelets and platelet-derived growth factors that trigger the natural regeneration processes of the skin cells. These activated cells produce collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and other structural components of the healthy skin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) improves cellular metabolism, has an immunomodulatory effect, makes the skin resistant to negative environmental factors (ultraviolet radiation, pollution, dry air, smoking, stress, sleep loss). Restored skin is more susceptible to cosmetic procedures and enhances their results.
The advantages of PRP therapy:
- Safety – the own cells and growth-stimulating factors are injected into the skin, it excludes the risk of rejection.
- Сombination of rejuvenation and treatment effects.
- A wide range of areas of use: the skin of the face, neck, decollete, the hairy part of the head, hands.
- Possibility to use it in combination with other anti-aging procedures.
