One of the innovative non-surgical means of restoring and rejuvenating the body, offered by modern medicine, is plasma-lifting. It is based on the fact that the patient is injected with the plasma of his own blood, enriched with platelets. Plasma lifting in gynecology is used as part of complex therapy to accelerate tissue regeneration and as an adjunct to anti-inflammatory therapy.
How it works
Many doctors believe that the human body has endless possibilities for healing with the help of its own resources, and medications should only help in this. Plasma lifting due to the biologically active properties of platelets helps the recovery of o whole organs, in contrast to drugs acting on a specific cause or symptom of the disease and which do not eliminate its consequences. The combination of the method with the classical methods of treatment can significantly increase their effectiveness and reduce the duration of the therapeutic course.
How do plasma lifting in gynecology?
Plasma lifting in gynecological practice is carried out according to the following plan:
The patient takes a little venous blood – 45-60 ml.
Using a centrifuge from the blood get auto plasma – plasma enriched with platelets. Platelets contain molecules that trigger tissue regeneration, and platelet plasma acquires bio stimulating qualities. It also contains hormones, vitamins, proteins that provide cellular renewal.
The resulting preparation using microinjections injected into the mucous tissue of the cervix and vagina. The procedure is painless, does not require anesthesia and recovery period. In special cases, you can apply 10% lidocaine spray.
As a result of plasma lifting, tissue repair processes are accelerated, blood flow and metabolism in the cells are improved, the elasticity of intimate muscles is increased, inflammatory processes stop, and reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms is slowed down. Using a plasma allows not only to cure the disease but also to avoid its recurrence due to the effect of immune correction.
Plasma lifting – course procedure. As a rule, the beginning of the course related to the first half of the menstrual cycle. On average, it takes from 5 to 10 procedures with a break of 5-7 days, depending on the patient’s health and the expected result. The effect begins to appear after the first injection. Physicians advise sex life to begin no earlier than a couple of weeks after the course of administration of platelet auto plasma.
When plasma lifting is recommended.
Plasma lifting is included in the complex treatment of various disorders of the reproductive system, but can also be used as a separate method. The main reasons for the introduction of auto plasma are:
- Inflammation of the pelvic organs (endocervix, chronic salpingo-oophoritis);
- Dystrophic diseases (cervical leukoplakia, vulvar Kraurosis);
- Cervical erosion.
Often plasma lifting is recommended for women with complaints of discomfort in intimate life after childbirth or as a result of genetic causes. Autoplasma injections make tissues more sensitive and increase muscle tone.
For women over forty years old, the problems of changing hormone production, dryness, urinary incontinence become relevant. In this case, auto plasma helps tissue regeneration and renewal.
Advantages and contraindications of the procedure
For all its effectiveness, plasma-lifting is one of the safest procedures in modern medicine. It eliminates the possibility of allergic reactions and side effects, as the “medicine” is made from the patient’s blood and does not contain foreign impurities (except for heparin, which protects the blood from clotting during the preparation of autoplasma). Autoplasma injections do not require hospitalization because of their atraumatic and painless.
The possibility of combining plasma lifting with other methods of treatment allows you to increase the effectiveness of therapy. Some women trust only proven methods of medicine, but as part of a comprehensive program that includes classical treatment and plasma-lifting, it does not cause psychological rejection.
Plasma lifting in gynecology has rather moderate contraindications for use:
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Malignant tumors;
- Acute infections;
- Systemic blood diseases (hemophilia, thrombocytopenia, and others);
- Heparin intolerance;
- Predisposition to the formation of hypertrophic scars;
- Mental illness.
