Plasma Treatment injections work by using your own natural blood to trigger the production of new collagen in the body, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. Discover the benefits of Plasma treatments, available now at Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA!
What is Plasma Treatment?
Plasma Treatment injections are used to rejuvenate skin via a harmonious blend of dermal fillers, combined with your own Plasma, to naturally contour and add volume to your face. This rich, concentrated serum is designed to yield more powerful and longer-lasting results than other injectables frequently used for skin rejuvenation.
How Does it Work?
A small vial of blood is drawn from your arm before being spun in a centrifuge that separates red blood cells from plasma. This process is specifically designed to quadruple the platelet count from what it normally is, so the plasma can be activated and injected into the skin. The activated serum causes the body to respond as if it were injured, thus kick starting the healing process with increased collagen production.
The result of this powerful and incredibly natural treatment is a healthier, youthful appearance, with fewer wrinkles and scars. Patients can also enjoy longer lasting results than if the dermal filler were just used on its own without plasma.
Which Areas Can be Treated With Plasma Injections?
As an aesthetic procedure, Plasma injections are used to rejuvenate the face and neck. They are especially effective with regards to softening lines and wrinkles under the eyes and on the neck.
What Procedures Can be Used With Plasma Treatment?
At Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics, we offer Plasma Treatment with two of our procedures.
- Juvederm with Plasma: A Juvederm filler is injected into the skin in several strategic places to optimize overall facial rejuvenation. Plasma is then injected into those same areas to optimize further collagen remodeling. The addition of Plasma allows for longer-lasting results than just a filler treatment alone. Side effects include swelling and bruising, similar to a filler treatment.
- Microneedling with Plasma: With this microneedling treatment, rather than using a topical hylauronic acid (HA) to infuse into the skin, we use Plasma for more collagen remodeling than HA alone.
Is it Painful?
Plasma injections are not painful and there is no downtime following treatment. There might be some redness for two to three days afterwards, but this can be easily concealed using mineral make-up. Bruising is possible, but rare.
