Sex is one of the most important elements of the human experience. Unfortunately, 43% of women, are reportedly suffering from various sexual dysfunctions such as poor lubrication, painful sex and inability to orgasm. The PRP for women’s sexual health procedure is becoming increasingly common. Women who desire a more effective means of reaching an orgasm are turning to this “natural,” non-surgical, almost painless, quick treatment to help resolve their sexual dysfunction.
Platelet-Rich plasma (PRP) treatments are also being used to decrease or resolve urinary incontinence in some female patients. Urinary stress incontinence is the number one reason elderly women go to the Nursing Homes. Some women cannot exercise because of urinary incontinence while some leak urine whenever they cough, laugh or sneeze.
This in office procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the arm, then transferring it to a centrifuge, where it spins for about 10 minutes to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and the platelet-poor plasma (PPP). Then, using a very tiny needle, the PRP is injected back into the clitoris and upper vagina into the area most important for the sexual response. In this PRP procedure, your own blood platelets are used to promote the growth factors that lead to rejuvenation of the female orgasm system and prompts natural regeneration and healing in the vaginal area.
Results may vary for each individual; however, most women report the following:
Patients can enjoy immediate and noticeable results that should reach their full potential about seven weeks after the treatment. The growth factors will begin to rejuvenate the treatment area right away, and many women report a dramatically improved sexual response and bladder control. An immediate increase in volume takes place, leading to noticeable results.
As PRP is a form of Regenerative Medicine, the formation of new collagen and elastin leads to mucosal skin thickening and tightening for about 14 months. A repeat of the procedure is necessary, usually about a year after your last treatment. PRP is a form of Regenerative Medicine and has cumulative effects, so it is perfectly safe to have booster treatments sooner than 12 months if desired.
Light sedation is used so as not to feel any discomfort during the procedure.
