Αυτόλογη μεσοθεραπεία προσώπου
Ever since Kim Kardashian tried it on camera, autologous facial mesotherapy – otherwise known as the Vampire Lift – has been in high demand.
Autologous mesotherapy – or PRP (Rich platelet plasma) – is mesotherapy in which we do not use substances such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins but inject autologous (i.e. the patient’s own) platelet-rich plasma. The patient’s own platelets have the ability to gradually release growth factors at the appropriate sites where we inject them. Through PRP therapy the growth factors proliferate, activating more stem cells. Growth factors are responsible for efficient and rapid tissue regeneration.
What is the aim of autologous mesotherapy?
The goal is not to directly fill wrinkles but to stimulate fibroblasts. Then, these fibroblasts will produce new collagen and all the necessary cellular lattice factors (Elastin, glycoproteins, etc.) as well as hyaluronic acid, which are responsible for the regeneration and hydration of the skin.
In which cases is autologous mesotherapy used on the face?
- For the correction of fine and deep wrinkles and expression wrinkles, both on the face, neck, décolleté and hands.
- The hydration of the skin
- The correction of acne scars
- Prevention, anti-ageing
What is the procedure of autologous mesotherapy?
The procedure is simple and painless. First, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then centrifuged. In this way we isolate the plasma which is rich in platelets and growth factors. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then activated by the addition of a nucleotide solution (PRP with DNA activator) and by the addition of calcium ions.
Even better activation can be done with autologous thrombin. In this case, the dermatologist Dr. Anastasia Tzouma activates the patient’s blood using his own blood, autologous thrombin, without the use of additional solutions. The dermatologist is trained for this procedure which is simple and painless for the patient.
What comes next, after the blood is activated?
Then, the plasma is injected into the face, neck or décolleté either by topical injection into deep wrinkles or by the traditional mesotherapy technique using a needle or dermapen. It can also be used together with centella asiatica cream in order to create a deep nourishing and hydrating mask.
The healing of the skin is rapid, the elasticity, tone and resilience of the skin are improved. Collagen fibres are reconstructed. Autologous mesotherapy can also be combined immediately after fraxel laser treatment (fraxel – total plasma lift). The effects are impressive and the healing is even faster.
The goal is not the immediate filling of wrinkles but the stimulation of fibroblasts which are responsible for the regeneration and hydration of the skin.
Is autologous mesotherapy a safe treatment?
It is a very safe treatment because it uses the patient’s blood so there is no risk of allergic reactions. Also, given the rapid healing thanks to the action of the platelets, the patient normally returns to work the next day.
How many sessions are needed?
One to two sessions are needed with an interval of 3-6 months depending on the case. Results last from 6 months to a year. The autologous mesotherapy that we use in the clinic is official, with CE of the Swiss company RegeN Lab. You will discuss with the medical dermatologist Dr. Anastasia Tzouma what exactly you want and she will recommend to you, based on your needs and your social profile, a treatment protocol that will meet your expectations.
