Plasma therapy is a method used to rejuvenate the skin. Besides aesthetic medicine, plasma therapy is used in physical medicine for treating sports injuries and cartilage problemsa.

The method includes the use of growth factors and stem cells from the patient’s own blood plasma. By centrifuging blood taken from the patient undergoing treatment, we achieve a high concentration of platelets in a small quantity of plasma. Apart from platelets, plasma contains seven main growth factors (GF) and a large number of stem cells (CD34). We use plasma enriched with platelets with patients who want gradual but visible improvement in skin texture and tonus, with a minimum recovery time.

Growth factors stimulate proliferation of the fibroblast and keratinocyte, which are responsible for the production of collagen and keratin. They play an important role in generating new blood vessels, in syntheses of collagen and the extra-cell matrix whose main substance is hyaluronic acid.
