Is EZ Gel™ treatment worth it? It is in Encino with Michael A. Persky, MD.

As with any aesthetic procedure, it is vitally important to choose your treating physician very carefully. Dr. Persky combines his skill, experience, anatomic injection knowledge, and training with natural artistic vision to help his patients achieve and maintain their aesthetic goals naturally over time.

Why EZ Gel™

Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, lips, and eyes have been a difficult problem for aesthetic physicians to treat. Available fillers and neurotoxins (BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®) have been used, but their limitations have left a lot to be desired. 

EZ Gel™ is the perfect answer and treatment for patients who would “never” otherwise have filler injections, as well as for patients who are scared that they may look like one of those “Housewives of Beverly Hills”; that unnatural fake look that some filler injectors create.    

Using the body’s own powerful proteins, instead of relying on artificial components, plasma filler is a prime treatment for skin rejuvenation and volumization. 

How Does EZ Gel™ Work?

EZ Gel™ is 100% autologous (made from your own blood) and is all-naturaI, combining albumin and plasma rich fibrin which contains stem cells and stimulates growth factors. There are no chemicals or additional substances used other than your own blood. EZ Gel™ provides a flexible consistency, allowing the plasma gel’s viscosity to adapt to the various areas of treatment. The extended release of growth factors and biostimulation further enhances beautiful, natural results over time. 

What Does EZ Gel Filler™ Treat?

Dr. Persky uses EZ Gel™ to treat fine crepe lines of the cheeks, “smokers” lines around the upper and lower lips, and crow’s feet, under eye hollows, jawline definition, and nasolabial folds (“laugh” lines.) 

High lateral cheeks can be volumized beautifully in younger patients who prefer having a natural product.  EZ Gel™ plasma is extremely versatile. It can be used for volume enhancement and symmetry adjustment, as well as skin rejuvenation. It stimulates collagen production, reducing the signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin) and acne scars. 

Skin tone and texture also improve. 

What Is EZ Gel™ Plasma Filler Treatment?

EZ Gel™ is ideal for patients looking for a natural injection that is not a “fake” filler. The treatment is performed in our office with a local anesthesia nerve block and topical anesthetic cream. It is a safe, clinically proven effective, and a long-lasting 100% natural treatment. The entire treatment takes less than an hour, and most of the time is in processing your blood into EZ Gel™. As an expert experienced injector, Dr. Persky is able to complete the injection process in less than 20 to 30 minutes.


Patients are asked to come to the office well hydrated and to avoid caffeine consumption the day of the treatment to help with the drawing of their blood. As with any injection, it is best to stop any blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, etc. for one week prior to treatment. Topical anesthesia cream may be applied for 30 minutes prior to the treatment.  


EZ Gel™ treatment begins by drawing two tubes of blood. The tubes are then centrifuged differently: one tube is rich in albumin, the other is rich in fibrin. The albumin rich tube is gently heated for about 10 minutes, creating a plasma gel. Depending on the patient’s needs, the two tubes are combined to create a thicker “gel” that is used to inject natural volume back into the needed areas, or the thinner liquid like plasma rich fibrin is injected to treat superficial lines. 

Both replacement of facial volume loss and fine wrinkle treatment can be done simultaneously. 


After the treatment, patients are massaged to ensure that the gel is uniformly distributed. Patients may use cold compresses for the first 48 hours for comfort and to decrease swelling.  48 hours after the injections, warm compresses may be used to reduce any bruising. Our patients are also sent home with Ocumed™ topical arnica gel patches to be used as needed. Strenuous exercise, hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms should be avoided for 24 to 48 hours after EZ Gel™. 

There is minimal swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising for a few days (3 to 7 days), depending on the individual. One week after the treatment, there is noticeable improvement of the face. 

Results continue to improve over 6 to 8 weeks as your own stem cells and growth factors influence the skin and soft tissue positively.

We recommend that patients return for their second EZ Gel™ treatment 6 to 8 weeks after the first treatment. It is recommended that patients have once a year maintenance EZ Gel™ treatment. Our patients have been very pleased with their natural long-lasting results with EZ Gel™.

What Are the Risks of EZ Gel™

There have not been any reports of granulomas or nodules. EZ Gel™ does not migrate as is the case for fillers. There have not been any reports of vascular occlusion with EZ Gel™. Warm compresses and Hylenex can be used in the event of occlusion.

Who Is a Candidate for EZ Gel™ Plasma Filler?

Great news! Everyone can benefit from EZ Gel™ treatment!  EZ Gel™ is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you’re looking for a natural way to improve your beauty, treat dark circles, stimulate collagen, and reduce signs of aging — EZ Gel™ may be the perfect treatment for you. Using your body’s own material, EZ Gel™ injections rejuvenate your skin without the use of chemical or synthetic materials. EZ Gel™ is 100% natural, non-invasive, and can be combined with other therapies to create a personalized regenerative treatment plan (Sculptra® Aesthetic, Hyperdilute RADIESSE®.)  EZ Gel™ can be combined with any existing filler.
