If you are considering non-surgical skin rejuvenation, adding plasma gel injections is a great way to optimize the results. At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, our board-certified Physician Assistant, Joni Collins Ricketts, offers plasma gel for our patients in Jacksonville (Town Center), Julington Creek, Fleming Island, Palm Coast and surrounding areas of North Florida.
What is Plasma Gel?
Plasma gel contains the same growth factors as PRP and PRF in a thicker consistency to give the skin immediate lift, similar to what occurs with dermal fillers. Once we extract the platelet-rich plasma or platelet-rich fibrin from your blood with a centrifuge, the plasma is heated to a specific temperature. The thermal process changes the plasma into a gel that is injected into your skin. The gel softens wrinkles and adds volume. Over time, growth factors in the plasma gel stimulate collagen production that maintains the younger appearance of the skin after the plasma gel is absorbed by the body.
How Much Does Plasma Gel Cost?
At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we strive to make our plasma gel treatments affordable. The treatment is supplementary to your dermal fillers and other medical spa treatments, and we discuss pricing after your consultation. Our payment options include cash, checks and major credit cards. We also offer financing options.
What are the Benefits of Plasma Gel?
- Extends the longevity of hyaluronic fillers
- Helps with skin volume, collagen, and elasticity
- Stimulates collagen for longer lasting results
- Can be used on the face and body
- Immediate results with gradual improvements over a few weeks
Am I a Candidate for Plasma Gel?
Everyone is a candidate for the procedure, and no allergy testing is needed. Older patients who are experiencing volume loss have seen incredible results with plasma gel when it is combined with other treatments. We perform a thorough examination and discuss your medical history and cosmetic goals to ensure that it is the best options. Plasma gel is best for skin rejuvenation, acne treatments, stretch marks, and rosacea, as well as dry eyes.
How is Plasma Gel Performed?
Plasma gel is part of our Collagen Blast Therapy, and it can be combined with hyaluronic fillers or other PRP/PRF treatments. It can also be used alone with repeat sessions. The gel is produced from plasma that is extracted from your blood. In most cases, two treatments at three months apart are recommended.
What is Recovery Like After Plasma Gel?
Plasma gel does not require any specific recovery. The recovery time is based upon the complementary procedure.
How Long Will My Plasma Gel Results Last?
Each person’s body and metabolism are different, but results typically last three to six months.
