Plasma therapy involves the injection of the patient’s own cells and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands, and neck. Known to some as the “vampire face-lift”. It takes about 20 minutes for each treatment and offers improvements for up to 18 months.


What is Micro-Needling?

Microneedling using Dermapen 4 precision creates controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue. Collagen induction therapy assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The remaining plasma can be then injected into any obvious lines or wrinkles.
