Platelet-rich plasma, otherwise known as PRP, is an injectable, protein-rich substance that’s a darling in the world of medical treatment. It’s proven to be a successful remedy for everything from tennis elbow and osteoarthritis to hair loss and skin rejuvenation.
Harvested from your own blood, PRP promotes muscular healing and cell growth in a highly concentrated form.
The team here at Brown, Pearson, and Guepet Gynecology is using PRP in an innovative way, to address women’s sexual and menopausal health, as well as for treatment of conditions that plague women no matter what their age, like incontinence.
What is involved in the PRP procedure exactly?
It’s really pretty amazing. We extract a small bit of blood from your arm and place it in a machine called a centrifuge, which rapidly processes the blood by separating its different properties until it’s concentrated.
This “miracle serum” of platelets and white blood cells left after the processing phase is helping patients recover faster from surgeries, allowing athletes to heal from injuries more quickly, and now, at our practice, helping women with sexual and gynecological issues.
What types of sexual and women’s health problems can PRP address?
PRP’s unique and powerful properties are what make it so effective. Here at the Brown, Pearson, & Guepet office, we’re excited to share how we can help you with common problems that affect women, but for which there aren’t many effective treatments:
- Low libido
- Vaginal sensitivity issues
- Trouble reaching orgasm
- Unsatisfying orgasms
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary incontinence
Many of our patients have talked about feeling uptight when discussing these matters, and that’s understandable; they’re very personal.
The good news is that our team is made up, 100%, of proactive problem-solvers, no matter what issue you’re dealing with. In short, we’re ready to help.
Groundbreaking PRP therapy for women’s sexual and gynecological health: The O-ShotⓇ
The O-Shot revitalizes your vaginal and clitoral areas to help you achieve a more intense orgasm, more easily and quickly. During this treatment, we numb your upper vagina and clitoris, then inject the PRP — and you’re on your way with only minor discomfort and zero downtime post-procedure.
Additionally, when we inject PRP directly into your vaginal walls, your vaginal moisture levels increase. And if you suffer with incontinence or a condition that afflicts menopausal women called lichen sclerosis (patchy, white skin in the vagina or anal areas), PRP can help you too.
We also use the O-Shot in conjunction with our ThermiVa® treatment to create a “hybrid Thermi-O” treatment course. ThermiVa is a pelvic tightening treatment that utilizes heat to help address incontinence.
Since PRP comes from your own body, you have a lower chance of experiencing an allergic reaction. These natural properties are drawing many women who seek noninvasive, no-drug ways to deal with conditions that can really cramp your style.
