It has been called the ‘Vampire Facelift,’ because the procedure involves injecting blood into the skin. This might sound like a macabre storyline from a horror novel, but in actuality, this is the latest in anti-aging skin rejuvenation.
The technology is called RegenPlasma, and it uses a high-concentration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to promote skin health by stimulating the underlying structural integrity of the skin. Plasma is widely used in the medical field for its restorative properties, particularly in surgery and wound care. Now it is being applied to the aesthetics industry. Those same restorative properties are being used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore health and vitality to the skin.
How Does RegenPlasma Work?
Plasma contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors designed to restore and strengthen the body. RegenPlasma is a regenerative medicine that works aesthetically when a concentration of cells is injected into the skin. The cells work with the body to naturally promote new tissue and collagen growth.
Preparation is quick and completed in the physician’s office. A blood sample is extracted and placed in a centrifuge, which separates the plasma from the red blood cells. After the centrifugation is complete, the plasma is combined with calcium chloride and injected into the skin. The treatment lasts 30-45 minutes depending on the areas being treated.
When Will I See Results?
After the treatment patients notice a softening of fine lines and deeper wrinkled areas, such as nasolabial folds, look plumper and smoother. However, the main goal of RegenPlasma is the development of long-term collagen formation in the dermis. Plumping of treated skin may be slowly absorbed by the dermis creating a platform for stronger skin.
Overall, results will vary depending on the patient’s health, age, and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy noticeable improvement in skin condition, texture, and tone within three weeks. Subtle improvements can continue for up to a year.
What Areas Can Be Treated with RegenPlasma?
PRP is derived from a patient’s own cells and contains no synthetic products, so it can treat virtually any area of the body including face, neck, chest, hands, scars, etc. The blood is safely and quickly prepared in the physician’s office and delivered to the skin within the same treatment session.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The procedure is less painful and causes less bruising than other dermal fillers on the market, and because the cells are taken exclusively from the patient, there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, you should let your physician know of any medications you are currently taking.
How Do I Take Care of My Skin After the Treatments?
To get the most out of your RegenPlasma treatments, you should eat a healthy, well-balanced diet, drink lots of water, and follow up your treatments with facial care recommended by your esthetician.
