PRP (Platelet-rich plasma)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option. PRP was established two decades ago as an effective medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral medicine, sports medicine, and orthopedics. 

Platelets play a key role in the natural cell regeneration process by releasing growth factors that trigger tissue repair, cell renewal, and collagen production.

 

PRP for Women Sexual Health

Women experiencing sexual difficulties, vaginal atrophy dryness, discomfort or urinary stress incontinence can access effective female intimate wellness treatment from a doctor trained in the gynecologic PRP procedure.

Many females suffer from stress urinary incontinence, painful intercourse and loss of sexual function due to a variety of causes including childbirth, aging and menopause. Some younger women also have difficulty with sexual arousal and stress urinary incontinence.

Despite these symptoms being common, unfortunately many women do not seek help from their GP or O&G. While childbirth and aging come with many changes, loss of sexual intimacy, urine leakage and poor vaginal health doesn’t have to be one of them.

PRP uses the patient’s own cells (platelets) to provide improvement in the health, quality and function of the female genito-urinary region to restore tissues to a more youthful state. It is an effective ‘hormone free’, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment.

 

How does PRP regenerate tissue?

PRP stimulates the remodeling of aging and damaged tissue through activation of the body’s healing processes. When tissue is injured, the body responds by sending ‘super healer’ cell types to the site of injury to generate new tissue. These ‘super healer’ cells are platelets. PRP is a procedure that harnesses the bio-stimulating power of platelets and their growth factors to initiate an intensified regenerative process. In this procedure, PRP will provide biological rejuvenation of the injected area to help treat the cause of the patient symptoms.

As a woman, choosing PRP for sexual wellness may offer many benefits, such as:

  • Relieving Vaginal / Vulval Atrophy (VVA) - irritation, burning, itching, chafing, bleeding or other discomfort of the vagina or external vulval tissues, dyspareunia (pain during sex), lack of lubrication

  • Hypoactive sexual desire (low desire)

  • Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) - urine leakage with physical activity, sneezing, coughing

  • Achieving better, stronger orgasms

  • Enhanced arousal from clitoral stimulation

  • Increased natural lubrication

  • More sexual satisfaction

  • Reduced pain during intercourse

  • Stronger sex drive

  • Tightened vaginal tissues

 

Female patients, 18 years and over with the following may be suitable candidates for the PRP procedure

  • Female sexual disorder (difficulty with arousal)

  • Female orgasmic disorder (difficulty climaxing)

  • Hypoactive sexual desire (low desire)

  • Dyspareunia (pain during sex)

  • Lack of lubrication

  • Vulvo-vaginal Atrophy - irritation, burning, itching, chafing, bleeding or other discomfort

  • Stress urinary incontinence

How soon can you see results in sexual enhancement?

There is minimal down time following PRP treatment for sexual rejuvenation. The effects of arousal can be immediate due to the volume effect of PRP and may dissipate over a few days. Slow improvement begins over the course of 3-5 weeks with full effects lasting up to 6 months. Depending upon the patient’s individual needs and treatment plan, PRP treatment for sexual health can be repeated until the desired result has been achieved. Depending on the severity of the problem, 2-4 treatments are typically necessary.

What is the procedure for the Sexual Wellness Shot?

This 30-45 minute in office procedure uses platelet rich plasma that is re-injected into the physical areas for sexual response. For women, it is injected into the clitoris and upper vagina. Also known as the O-shot®, this non-surgical treatment helps improve sexual arousal response, performance, clitoral sensitivity, sexual stamina, urinary incontinence, tightening of the vaginal wall and vaginal lubrication.

PRP for Hair Regrowth

In hair restoration, evidence supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth. PRP therapy has been used successfully to treat hair loss in both men and women. Injections are made directly into the scalp, where the growth factors in PRP are thought to signal hair follicles to remain in the growth phase longer, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.

  • Attract stem cells,

  • Help stimulate hair follicles growth,

  • Increase circulation to hair follicles, and

  • Decrease inflammation

 

We will have an assessment with you before the treatment, assess your hair loss and recommend suitable treatment plan. Hair loss will slow down immediately after treatments and new hair growth will be observed a few weeks after.

 

We recommend 3 treatments with monthly intervals. More sessions might be recommended for desired results. It is completely safe to perform as many sessions as desired at monthly intervals.

Our client service team will do regular follow up to ensure we have all your questions answered, and you have achieved your ultimate goals eventually.

 

 

 

 

​PRP for Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can appear after weight loss/gain and are most often suffered by women after pregnancy.

Stretch marks are a type of scar and can be quite noticeable as raised white or red lines. Usually, they are on the arms, abdomen, thighs or breast. People can feel self-conscious about stretch marks, and can sometimes even deter them from wearing revealing clothes or swimwear.

Previously skin resurfacing laser treatments were popular in treating stretch marks. However, today micro needling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has overtaken as an effective treatment for stretch marks. Occasionally laser resurfacing treatments are combined with PRP.

Small holes are created on both the outer epidermis layer and the inner dermis layer of the skin. These holes are so small that they restore back to normal within minutes or hours. PRP’s job is to accelerate the healing response triggered by the micro needling and it must do so during the time the skin open. So immediately after the micro needling therapy, the PRP is applied, and massaged well enough for the platelets to actually seep through the holes. These platelets first stop the micro-bleeding caused by the micro needling and then the growth factors in the platelets cause the production of collagen. you will see rejuvenated skin in the areas of the stretch marks.
