Move over Botox, as a new cosmetic therapy has arrived in Sydney - plasma replacement therapy involves injecting patients with their own plasma to firm up saggy skin.
Dr Mariusz Gajewski, 39, known as Dr Mazza, of Star Cosmetic Medicine in Pyrmont, is pioneering the procedure Down Under, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

The expert added: "If someone comes in and has sagging skin which has lost collagen around the neck, which they call turkey neck, this treatment will make the skin tighter and put more collagen in again."
The treatment takes 45 minutes and costs up to 900dollars.
"This treatment does not replace Botox," he said. "Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. In this role there are few things better than Botox. Plasma replacement therapy allows further improvement in skin texture and tissue volume."
