Would you bleed for better skin? Believe it or not, those were the words on Allure magazine’s cover earlier this year! They were referring to PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, one of the most innovative and exciting anti-aging treatments to enter the medical spa arena in recent years. We proudly offer PRP treatments at Aria DermSpa for both skin and hair revitalization.
Thanks to Kim Kardashian, PRP is rather famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective!). You might remember her shocking selfie featuring a closeup of her smiling face covered in PRP. While her picture was startling, PRP has been a trusted and well-established treatment among dentists for decades to help speed healing and decrease infections for dental implants. Injured athletes have also long benefited from PRP’s healing power.
At Aria DermSpa, we love PRP for rejuvenating both the skin and hair. It sounds complicated, but PRP is a fairly simple and straightforward treatment that takes less than an hour of your time. Once your blood is drawn, we isolate PRP from your blood using a centrifuge. PRP can then be applied to the skin either topically or through injection, stimulating collagen growth, restoring volume, and rejuvenating the face for radiant, younger-looking skin. We can also inject PRP into the scalp to help stimulate new hair growth for patients with thinning hair. One of the best things about PRP is that it’s entirely natural, so there’s no harsh side effects or downtime.
