Plasma facial rejuvenation. Types of procedures, equipment, photos before and after, reviews

Facial rejuvenation by injecting a plasma solution under the skin is a new technique in cosmetic medicine. In just a few years, the method has been widely used in private clinics, and customer reviews advertise the product as something revolutionary in the world of cosmetology.

For the sake of maintaining objectivity, you should consider the service from different angles and compare it with other methods of rejuvenation using injections.

The principle of plasma lift

The plasmolifting procedure involves the administration of several injections to problem areas of the skin, the composition of which is prepared from the patient's blood. First, the doctor takes blood from the patient's vein and uses a special device to separate it into its components. Blood plasma containing a sufficient number of platelets is mixed with a special gel.

The gel is necessary to keep the plasma in a certain area; then it is distributed. By introducing the plasma composition under the skin, a certain reaction of the body occurs, the production of collagen and elastin proteins begins, making the skin more elastic and stronger.

Also, hyaluronic acid begins to be produced naturally, which promotes cell regeneration. This process occurs in the body of every person, but with the help of the plasma lifting procedure, cell renewal occurs faster.

Efficiency of the procedure

Depending on the state of health and the characteristics of the body, the effect of raising plasma lasts from 9 months to 2 years, gradually dissolving during this period. During this time, the skin remains smooth, elastic and elastic. If the procedure is performed on the head to renew hair growth, then up to 10 sessions are performed; facial rejuvenation, on the other hand, occurs in 3-4 stages.

If further actions are stopped to continue the process of rejuvenation, the skin returns to its original state, the wrinkles in the areas subjected to plasma lifting return.

Advantages and disadvantages

Plasma facial rejuvenation, reviews of which have flooded the Internet in recent years, has positive and negative sides, like any other procedure.

The intervention is autologous, so the material for insertion under the skin is 90% natural and local to the patient.

This is the main advantage, since there is no risk of rejection, as with the introduction of foreign (synthetic) substances, and the possibility of allergies is also excluded. In addition, the rehabilitation period lasts a maximum of one week, which allows you to order this method of rejuvenation while going on vacation.

The disadvantages include the fact that the procedure fights only small and small wrinkles and the effect is very short-lived. In some cases, the method must be repeated every 9 months, which is not affordable for everyone. But, despite the need to repeat the procedure, it does not cause addiction and the dose of plasma administration remains the same.

Types of procedure

Plasma facial rejuvenation, reviews of which are left by grateful customers on every website of cosmetic clinics, is used not only to get rid of fine wrinkles, but also, if desired, to restore elasticity and healthy skin color.

There are a number of problem areas in the human body where this procedure is used to the maximum, divided into different types:

  • facial plasmolifting, which allows you to get rid of shallow facial wrinkles, folds and restore the shape of the face and its individual areas;
  • plasma lift of the neck– corrects sagging skin, giving it elasticity and fullness;
  • in the cleavage area– reduces sagging skin and eliminates stretch marks;
  • in the area of the hair on the head- promotes hair growth, improves the functioning of sebaceous glands, the correct functioning of which eliminates dandruff and dry scalp;
  • plasma lifting of intimate areas– fights inflammation, corrects the shape of the lips;
  • in the thigh area– eliminates stretch marks and reduces the percentage of cellulite deposits;
  • plasma lifting in dentistry– promotes the regeneration of soft tissues, eliminates inflammation of the gums;
  • the rise of plasma in other parts of the body, where wounds are present, promotes rapid tissue metabolism, stimulating cell regeneration.

Correction areas

Plasma can be injected into any area of the skin, including body parts inside a person (gums, uterus).

For renewal, select the following correction areas:

  • the area around the eyes;
  • nasolabial folds;
  • the area responsible for the oval of the face;
  • folds at the neck;
  • stretch marks in the cleavage area;
  • the areas with the most pronounced manifestations of acne;
  • wounds, burns and wounds on other parts of the body;
  • scalp area, in hairline areas.

What devices are used in plasma lifting?

To perform the procedure of skin rejuvenation and correction using plasma lifting, special devices are needed that work with different volumes and with different powers. For example, a device designed to process 8 test tubes at the same time, with a power of 6000 rpm, looks like a kitchen scale.

Another device processes 12 test tubes at the same time, but with less power, only 4000 rpm, its price is 3 times lower, and it looks like a pot with a lot of volume and shape. Other equipment includes a sterilizer and vacuum tubes with a special gel that separates the blood.

Equipment is purchased from private clinics, but if you wish, you can install a similar thing at home and perform plasma lifting at home.

Preparation for the intervention

Rejuvenation of the face using plasma injections requires that the patient first undergo a medical examination to exclude oncology at any stage, infection and other diseases for which the procedure is contraindicated. According to reviews from previous customers, it does not take much time and money. The applicant is then given time to prepare.

For 3-4 days, it is necessary to exclude from the diet alcohol, fatty and spicy foods and drugs that prevent the formation of platelets.

On the day of the procedure itself, you should refrain from eating at all and drink only a lot of water until the correction is completed. The patient is obliged to wash off all the make-up from the face and wash the face with soap so that the tonic or cream with which the make-up was removed is destroyed from the surface of the face.

Carrying out the procedure

After the final preparation, venous blood is taken from the patient and placed in a centrifuge. In the device, it is divided into components and anticoagulants are added to the working part, which prevent blood clotting. When the composition is ready, the patient lies in a horizontal position for ease of injection.

Then, it is necessary to perform anesthesia using a freezing gel, which is used to cover the face, while the person remains conscious, but does not feel pain from the injections.

Anesthesia is optional; its price is not included in the cost of the procedure. Then the doctor takes a thick syringe and injects the required plasma composition one by one into each specific problem area. The whole process takes about 1 hour, this is the duration of 1 session.

The rehabilitation period, how the recovery continues

When plasma is injected under the skin, a thick needle is used that can pass through a thick gel. After it, the marks remain on the face in the form of red dots, which disappear by themselves within 2-3 days. If the doctor did not touch the vessel, then you can do without a hematoma; if not, and a hematoma appears, it will also resolve naturally.

You should not use healing agents in order not to distribute the plasma itself under the skin.During the first week, the area under which the plasma gel was injected looks like plasticine when pressed, leaving an indentation.

It is a gel and is felt under the skin until it dissolves, which lasts 7-12 days. The procedure does not affect the general state of health if sanitary standards are respected and there was no infection.

Recommendations for facial skin care after plasma rejuvenation

During the rehabilitation period, during the first days, it is not recommended to use cosmetics in the form of foundation, powder and regular creams. If the procedure does not involve the lips and eyes, then the use of lipstick and eye makeup is allowed; the point is not to irritate the damaged skin areas from the injections.

Also, the day after the procedure, you should not do facial massage, use a scrub, do peeling or face masks. During the week you can not visit the sauna, bath or sunroom, and it is also not recommended to be in direct sunlight.

For this reason, some patients prefer to do the procedure in winter; the cold has a positive effect on the skin in general and during the day you don't have to hide in your apartment from the sun.


If the rejuvenation procedure was performed by qualified personnel, then the maximum discomfort that the patient experiences after plasma removal is a slight swelling, which goes away by the end of the day. Injection marks disappear on their own after 2-3 days. If the patient falls into the wrong hands, then various consequences are possible.

For example, if the needle is held at the wrong angle, it can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, causing serious bruising that can take a week to heal. If sanitary standards are not respected, then blood poisoning, hepatitis and other serious diseases transmitted through blood are possible.

This usually happens due to repeated use of syringes. Unforeseen circumstances are also possible in the form of an allergy to the metal of the needle, anesthesia, the consequence of which can be the formation of ulcers in the area where the needle is inserted. Allergy to anticoagulants is clarified before the procedure, so it is excluded.

Plasma facial rejuvenation, reviews of which often refer to the effectiveness of treating problem skin, is also performed to get rid of extensive acne and post-acne.

In this case, the condition may worsen for 2 weeks, followed by inflammation. However, this effect diminishes itself over time, remission occurs and the expected result is achieved.

Is it possible to raise plasma at home?

Plasmolifting is possible only with special equipment that separates the blood into components. In addition, it is necessary to consider the sanitary standards that should be present in the doctor's room by default.

Without these requirements, the procedure can be unsafe, so it is not recommended to perform the rejuvenation outside the doctor's office, but from a practical point of view, the procedure is possible at home.

Advantages over other facial rejuvenation techniques

Unlike synthetic types of rejuvenation, when drugs and foreign substances are introduced under the skin, causing irritation or rejection with all kinds of consequences, plasma lifting, today, occupies a leading position in safety.

Even the introduction of hyaluronic acid, which dissolves over time, has a number of side effects, such as itching, swelling and difficult healing due to the use of a low-quality drug. During plasma lifting, foreign substances are not introduced into the body, which would cause rejection, inflammation and a long period of rehabilitation.

With what techniques can plasma lifting be combined?

Plasma facial rejuvenation, reviews of which often appear on forums dedicated to the fight against age-related changes, has no future contraindications for any skin care method.

Plasma facial rejuvenation can be combined with massage after the skin has healed

After the necessary healing period has passed, the patient can additionally use massages, peelings, masks, scrubs, etc. Plasmolifting does not make the skin vulnerable, on the contrary, it becomes more elastic and durable.

How many sessions are needed to achieve the effect?

Depending on the age of the patient, the ability of his body to recover quickly and the sensitivity to the rise of plasma, 2-4 procedures with a period of 2-3 weeks may be required - this is how long it takes for the gel to be absorbedand the skin to fully heal from the injections. Alopecia treatment may require up to 10 sessions.

The process of removing facial wrinkles thanks to plasma rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation with plasma injections is the only option for some patients with sensitive skin. According to reviews from those who have previously tried other methods of injection correction, the main concern is the risk of inflammation, facial deformation and allergies.

In the case of plasma lifting, no irreversible negative processes associated with the procedure have yet been recorded, which means that we can safely say that plasma correction is the safest method of rejuvenation today.
