I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a picture of Buffy the Vampire Slayer paired with a recent Allure story on Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a super hot and highly effective anti-aging treatment. In case you’re not familiar, PRP is a concentrated portion of your own blood that can rejuvenate your skin and hair. As evidenced by that startling picture of Buffy wielding a stake, the world is a bit intimidated by the healing power of blood! But I assure you, PRP treatments aren’t scary or even remotely related to vampires. (Need I even say that?)
What a lot of people don’t realize is that PRP has been around for years, and there’s nothing “creepy” about it. For decades, oral surgeons have loved PRP for its ability to reduce infection risk and speed healing for dental implants, and sports doctors have relied on PRP’s restorative properties for athletic injuries.
Another thing that may surprise you about PRP is that it’s a fairly quick and easy treatment to get; it takes only minutes to draw and prepare your blood in our medspa. The actual application of PRP to your skin or hair is no longer than your typical facial.
At AVIE!, we love PRP, but go a step further to provide PRFM, or Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix, the next generation of PRP in its purest form. Unlike PRP, PRFM filters out red and white blood cells, resulting in a more concentrated portion of blood platelets and fibrin matrix for slower-acting and longer-lasting rejuvenation. To meet your unique needs, we offer three types of PRPM therapies—PRP Facial, PRP Facelift, and PRP Hair Restoration.
