Plasma Replacement Therapy To Cure Wrinkles

To fix wrinkled skin, a new cosmetic therapy called the Plasma Replacement Therapy was introduced recently in Sydney. According to this therapy, the patients are injected with their own plasma to firm up saggy skin.

Dr Mariusz Gajewski from Star Cosmetic Medicine in Pyrmont is pioneering the procedure.

"By spinning a patient's blood down in a centrifuge, the blood is reduced to its plasma components that are rich in growth cells. When injected, they are great for rejuvenating the skin," says Dr. Gajewski.

The treatment takes 45 minutes and costs up to 900 dollars. The treatment does not replace Botox. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles whereas, Plasma Replacement Therapy allows further improvement in skin texture and tissue volume.
