In previous articles, we have talked extensively about PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy and how it can be a beneficial treatment strategy for numerous injuries and degenerative conditions. But PRP can also be used for body contouring purposes. That’s what we’re going to dive into with this article – how PRP injections can be used for contouring.
How Does PRP Work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine technique that uses the patient’s own blood plasma to encourage natural regrowth and regeneration. The treatment works by first drawing a small portion of the patient’s blood, then running it through a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. Then the PRP solution is injected back into the patient’s body. This plasma immediately goes to work repairing the body’s damaged tissues.
Contouring with PRP
First of all, what does contouring mean? Body contouring is the process of reshaping and regenerating certain areas of the body. Plastic surgery is perhaps the most famous example of body contouring. However, PRP injections offer a contouring method that is completely natural, pain-free, and much less invasive than plastic surgery procedures. Using the same tissue regenerating methods, PRP can be a fantastic method for contouring specific areas of the body, including:
- The Face
Regenerative procedures like the Vampire Facial, the PRP Breastlift, and the P-shot offer excellent alternatives to plastic surgery for patients looking for body contouring help.
