Plasmolifting is a type of tissue regenerating medical treatment that is completely non-surgical which is developed by two Russian scientists: Renat R. Akhmerov and Roman F. Zarudy. This skin rejuvenating procedure makes use of patient’s blood in order to manufacture injectable autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) via centrifugation and incubation. Plasmolifting PRP Gel is a vital component to this procedure as it actually helps to separate the PRP from other blood components successfully. It is made of a separating gel with an inert polymer and sodium citrate-based anticoagulant that can extract 20% more PRP compared to other centrifugation preparations on the market. Each pack of Plasmolifting PRP Gel comes with ten 9ml sterile, disposable, and double-packed borosilicate medical glass tubes that are pre-filled with the separating gel. This medical device should be stored at room temperature and well-protected from moisture, sunlight, and heat. Plasmolifting and all its components are manufactured by an Italian company, Industrie Biomediche & Farmaceutiche.
The main benefit of Plasmolifting is its utmost safety profile and high biocompatibility. Since the PRP-based implant is centrifuged and heat-processed aseptically from the patient’s own blood, it can then be injected safely to correct various skin aging signs with very minimal risk of rejection or allergic rejections. Patients with known hypersensitivity to common materials used in dermal fillers such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) should be treated using this autologous Plasmogel instead. Besides that, this medical device is also capable of inducing instant skin improvements with short rehabilitation period. Most importantly, since it is made of PRP with potent tissue rehabilitating action, Plasmogel can be used in various areas of medicine. In addition, PRP-based implants can also be combined with other aesthetic procedures for enhanced skin improvements.
Plasmolifting PRP Gel has a sodium citrate-based anticoagulant that helps to prevent the start of blood coagulation in the tube. It also contains a separating gel with an inert polymer to ensure that the patient’s blood is effectively separated into plasma rich in platelets and white and red blood cells. Other components that complete the Plasmolifting system are:
Plasmolifting Centrifuge XC 2000 or XC 2415
Plasmolifting Incubator Mini B 100
Plasmolifting PRP Gel is an important, sterile, and disposable component of the Plasmolifting therapy. It is made of sodium citrate-based anticoagulant and thixotropic separating gel that helps to effectively separate tissue nourishing PRP from the patient’s own blood. Its unique formulation allows 20% more platelet extraction from the patient’s blood. The extracted autologous PRP will then be heat-processed in an incubator to form an injectable implant that can be used to nourish and rejuvenate weakened skin structure, resulting in plumper and healthier-looking skin.
How do I use this product?
Plasmolifting therapy can only be conducted on patients whose medical history have been reviewed extensively. Start the procedure by first preparing the patient for blood sampling. Next, draw 9ml of the patient’s blood into the Plasmolifting PRP Gel tube via a vacutainer. Complete the blood sampling process and invert the blood-filled tube five to six times to ensure that the blood is completely mixed with the anticoagulating and thixotropic separating gel. Proceed by centrifuging the blood-filled tube for five minutes with the machine set at 4000rpm and fixed-angle rotor centrifuge. Following the completion of the centrifugation step, heat the extracted autologous PRP in an incubator for three to six minutes at 95°C until an injectable form of the PRP called Plasmogel is formed. You can then administer the prepared Plasmogel into the areas requiring rejuvenation via intradermal or supraperiosteal injections. At the end of the session, ensure that you discard all used medical consumables safely as they are considered as contaminated biological wastes.
When should I use this product?
You should use this medical device when you are performing Plasmolifting therapy on your patients who are presented with common skin aging signs. Patients who are allergic to common preparation of dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid are better suited to receive autologous PRP implant injections as they are sourced from the patient’s own blood.
What areas can I treat with this product?
This completely sterile, tissue-friendly, and biodegradable Plasmogel can be injected into areas showing signs of aging such as the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands and feet. Following the treatment session, common signs of dermal aging like laxity, wrinkles, acne scars, loss of facial volume, and unsculpted facial contours are improved.
How long does the product last?
The injected autologous Plasmogel can last for about three months in the tissues before it is metabolized completely by the surrounding tissues. Though the injected Plasmogel tends to disintegrate within three months following intradermal administration, the skin beautifying effects of the PRP injections are expected to last for at least two years before the previous aging signs start emerging again.
How long does the treatment take?
A single treatment session usually last about 40 to 50 minutes. Your patients might need up to four sessions spaced a week apart for best results.
