PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy has been in use for years as a regenerative therapy. It promotes long-lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions with little-to-no possibility of allergic reaction and no risk of transmissible infection! Celebrities such as Tiger Woods, Angelina Jolie, Kobe Bryant, and Kim Kardashian have all been known to use PRP therapy for healing as well as beauty; but why should this science be reserved only for celebrities? We don’t believe it should be!
Contour Clinic's PRP Institute was founded with the goal of bringing PRP Therapy from the arenas of sports medicine and rehabilitation into the field of aesthetics and to make it accessible to our local Minneapolis communities.
How PRP Works
Use your own blood to stimulate the growth of collagen, elastin, and even microcirculation! When you have an injury to your soft tissue, your body naturally sends platelets to the area to start the wound healing process. PRP treatments direct platelets to the specific areas you would like to improve, like cheekbones, tear troughs, or breast tissue, or even the scalp! These platelets then release growth factors that increase the production of collagen, stimulate blood flow, and regenerate the site of injection.
Your RN or physician will begin by comfortably drawing your blood. This blood is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platlet-rich plasma (PRP). Contour Clinic uses the Arteriocyte Centrifuge which yields the richest and most concentrated platelets on the market! The PRP is then prepared to be used either via injection or topical application, depending on the treatment and your goals. Because it uses your own blood, there is no possibility of allergic reaction.
Outside of the few initial pin pricks and having your blood drawn, these treatments are surprisingly comfortable!
