Platelet Rich Plasma Facial

You may have seen on social media where the celebrities slather blood on their faces. Is it a horror movie, or are they being sacrificed in the name of beauty? It may seem a little woo woo, but Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, also referred to as the Blood Facial, or Blood Plasma Facial, is a real thing where a mask is made from components of your own blood spread onto your face to rejuvenate the skin. 

What is PRP?

First, your provider will draw your blood and place it into a centrifuge where it separates into three layers: the plasma comes to the top, platelets and blood cells are in the middle, and red blood cells are at the bottom. It is pulled from the middle part, also known as the “serum” or “liquid gold.”

How is it applied?

Once your serum is prepared from your blood, there are several different treatments.  It can be applied directly to your skin to stimulate collagen and healing. It can be injected or used in conjunction with micro-needling, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments. Because PRP is derived from your own blood, allergic reactions or side effects are not a concern.  There is nothing artificial. It contains growth factors that stimulate tissue healing with benefits related to cellular growth and tissue regeneration.


This technology is also used in non-surgical procedures for hair rejuvenation and orthopedics to enhance healing after surgery or injury.   

PRP can be used for a variety of other indications:

  1. Hair loss
  2. Acne scars
  3. Surgical or traumatic scars
  4. Skin Rejuvenation

PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth and collagen rejuvenation. We offer treatments at Beauty from Ashes Aesthetics and often recommend it combined with other treatments such as lasers or micro-needling to produce even better results.  Contact us today to see how we can use PRP for you!
