The essence of the procedure
Plasmolifting is an injection revitalizing therapy,
which involves the introduction of its own autologous plasma with

Stages (how to do the procedure)
- Obtaining platelet-rich autoplasma (PRP).
Used peripheral venous blood of the patient. For the procedure
no more than 20-50 ml of whole blood will be needed
on an empty stomach, placed in a special tube with a preservative and
process in a centrifuge. When processing the blood is divided into
separate fractions with various density:
- BeTP: platelet-poor plasma;
- PRP: platelet layer or platelet-rich plasma
(on the order of 1,000,000 / μl of platelets);
- erythrocyte and leukocyte mass.
- Antiseptic skin treatment.
- Applying an anesthetic cream.

Regarding the possibility of infection of the patient with infections,
transmitted through blood (including dangerous ones), they are possible:

processing and introduction of finished autoplasma into the skin may develop
complications in the form of local or general inflammatory process
- introduction to plasma of unintended components
(vitamins, microelements, hyaluronic acid) can also
lead to complications from the development of an allergic reaction to
inflammation at the injection sites.
What is better – plasma lifting or biorevialization
If you compare the two procedures, you can see that the indications for their
carrying out, as well as the expected effects, are about the same.
Biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid is also referred to as
natural, safe methods of rejuvenation from the inside –
