The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections involves using a portion of the patient’s own blood to create a platelet concentration above baseline in an effort to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, joints, and muscles. This process can also be applied to various musculoskeletal problems. The reasoning behind the process is that your platelets are what help your body heal when it is injured. The theory then is that PRP injections is that this regeneration process will occur automatically, sometimes to heal a torn ligament and other times to add vibrancy to aging skin.
Whether you are considering a PRP face lift procedure or the intriguingly named vampire breast lift, it is important to take a minute to understand the variety of processes that are available.
