Blood contains four main components; red blood cells, platelets, white blood cells and plasma. Platelets are produced in the bone marrow, while plasma is the light yellow colored liquid that is remained after all the blood cells have been removed.
The smallest of all the blood cells are the platelets. Platelets circulate in the bloodstream and bind together when they recognize injury. When a person gets cut, it is the platelets that bind to the site of injury to repair the damage. During the process of the damage, the platelets rush to the site of injury and grow sticky tentacles like an octopus to help with adherence. At Super Medical Centers, we refer to this as the “human glue”.
Plasma, on the other hand, is 90% water and plays an important role in fighting illnesses, and contains proteins, albumin and fibrinogen. However, the main function of plasma is transporting nutrients, proteins and hormones to the body, as well as removing waste products.
There is scientific evidence from reputable sources such as the National Institutes of Health on the effectiveness of the Platelet and Plasma procedure in delivering a non-surgical face lift appearance. Platelet and plasma have many benefits; it improves the skin’s texture, elasticity, and tightens the skin while generating collagen fibers over time to enhance the appearance of the unwanted fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin.
Platelet and plasma contain certain molecules and proteins that provide nutrients that will nourish the skin cells in the utmost natural, healthy and organic way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and has tremendous anti-aging benefits. Platelet and plasma will continue to build collagen with long lasting effects due to natural cell renewal processes that occurs over the weeks and months to come post treatment. Dr. Girgis injects Platelet and Plasma meticulously into the face, hands, neck and scalp to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, all types of scars, and years of sun damage. The results mirror a gentle face lift especially when combined with our laser protocols without going under the knife and without downtime.
