While the world continues to embrace more and more advances in technology, when it comes to aesthetics, there is a trend towards products and treatments that are more natural and results that appear more natural. Re-nu's Plasma and Stem Cell face lift utilize the body's own resource and healing abilities to rejuvenate the skin and replace lost volume resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Plasma is the serum component of whole blood and is rich in platelet-derived growth factors. These growth factors are involved in the normal wound healing process and when used for aesthetic purposes, stimulate collagen production which helps to firm up or tighten the skin. Plasma treatments entail withdrawal of 4-6 tubes of venous blood, centrifuging to separate the red blood cells, concentrating the platelets and release of their growth factors and administering the growth factors into the skin. The number of required treatments for optimal results depend on the patient's age and condition of their skin. 4-6 weeks are usually needed to begin seeing results which can last 18-24 months. Plasma treatments can be performed on any part of the body and can be done alone or in combination with dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse and in combination with Stem Cells and autologous fat.
