Facial rejuvenation treatment by RegenPlasma™, is the latest anti-aging treatment explained in a video by Edmonton-based cosmetic doctor, Dr Barry Lycka. This quick and simple technique stimulates tissue regeneration using the blood products of the person receiving the treatment. Using a patented technique, clinicians take a patient's blood and concentrate the proportion of platelets in the plasma to four times the normal level. The result is a gel called Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP for short. It is already used in other fields of medicine, but now PRP is being used for facial rejuvenation.

Edmonton, Alberta (PRBuzz.com) May 3, 2012 -- For those wishing to turn back the clock and have young again skin, a new facial rejuvenation treatment by RegenPlasma™, is the latest anti-aging treatment explained in a video by Edmonton-based cosmetic doctor, Dr Barry Lycka. This quick and simple technique stimulates tissue regeneration using the blood products of the person receiving the treatment. Using a patented technique, clinicians take a patient's blood and concentrate the proportion of platelets in the plasma to four times the normal level. The result is a gel called Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP for short.

PRP is already used in other fields of medicine - sports medicine is just one area in which PRP has proved successful in rebuilding tissue. Other areas include orthopaedics, ophthalmology and cardiac surgery, and it is now being introduced into the field of aesthetics for facial rejuvenation. When PRP is injected into the facial skin, it activates the stem cells that create a new dermis to support the skin, and it also stimulates collagen, creating a fresher and healthier look.

In this video Dr Lycka explains:
• the science behind the PRP technique
• how it is being used by cosmetic doctors
• the experience & results being reported by patients

Finally Dr Lycka explains that up until now, there has been a gap in the range of treatments available for people who want to see a perceptible difference in their skin and create a more youthful appearance - without having surgery, or using artificial fillers or muscle toxins. Regen Plasma fills that gap, and can be combined with other therapies for maximal effect.

This video is the latest in a weekly series shown on YourCosmeticDoctor.tv where Dr Lycka not only provides cosmetic surgery information and advice based upon his experience, but where he also highlights new and interesting techniques in the cosmetic and aesthetic world.
