Lately there has been a lot of talk about injections of one’s own blood for facial rejuvenation treatments with plasma. We have been using it for some time but it is necessary to explain well why this facial treatment works and to clarify that it is not necessary to end up with a face full of blood, as some images that have been published recently.
The treatment is based on extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, to which anticoagulant is added and centrifuged. With the centrifugation we manage to separate the plasma rich in growth factors (as is done with injuries in athletes). This is the plasma that will then be injected in the points where we choose. In this case, in the face.
The duration of the whole treatment is usually 15 minutes and then you have to add a soothing mask for another 10 minutes. In some clinics the blood left over from the extraction is used as a mask, hence the famous images, but we have tried it and we do not believe that it provides any benefit (although it is not harmful either) so we do not do it.
Effects of facial plasma treatment
The effects of this treatment for facial rejuvenation are immediate, it is very noticeable the first day although it can also leave some small bruises. It is a treatment that achieves a luminosity unmatched by other techniques because it activates the functions of fibroblasts causing the stimulation of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin.
Being a treatment that uses the patient’s own blood, it is totally natural and has no adverse reactions. And, of course, the result is also very natural.
