Recently there is a lot of talk about injections of the blood itself for treatments of facial rejuvenation with plasma. We have used it for a long 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, like 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 managed to separate the plasma rich in growth factors (as it is done with injuries in athletes). That is the plasma that will then be injected in the points where we choose. In the case at hand, in the face.

The duration of the entire treatment is usually 15 minutes and then you have to add a soothing mask another 10 minutes. In some clinics the blood that has been 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 brings any benefit (although it is not harmful either) so we do not do it.

Effects of facial treatment with plasma

The effects of this treatment for facial rejuvenation are immediate , it is very noticeable the first day although you can also leave some small cardinal. It is a treatment that achieves an unrivaled luminosity with other techniques thanks to activating the functions of the fibroblasts causing the stimulation of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin.

Being a treatment in which the patient's own blood is used is completely natural and has no adverse reactions. And, of course, the result is also very natural .
