Vaginal Rejuvenation with Platelet-Rich Plasma
Vaginal laxity, changes to libido, and stress urinary incontinence are all common problems that can occur in a woman’s lifetime due to childbirth, weight changes, natural aging and menopause. These medical conditions can negatively affect a woman’s quality of life.
An innovative treatment which gains popularity with each passing day is Platelet-Rich Plasma for effective rejuvenation of the vagina.The procedure itself involves taking the patient’s own blood and machine separating of the platelet serum, followed by a vaginal tissue treatment with the precise injection of PRP. The use of PRP in cosmetic medicine is not limited to vaginal rejuvenation as it has been widely popular for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, healing and other types of rejuvenation throughout the body.
Where injected, PRP stimulates growth and repair of connective tissue and aides in the natural healing process by offering a high concentration of platelets. The platelets encourage stem cell activity, release of essential growth factors, and restore vitality, circulation and optimal tissue function.
The PRP procedure for vaginal rejuvenation is a simple yet effective one. First, a very small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm so that it can be processed and separated into its key parts. The centrifugation isolates blood platelets and its associated growth factors with the serum of the blood, while red and most white cells are discarded.
Finally, using a very fine needle, the PRP is injected into the area of the vaginal and vulvar tissue where sexual sensation and function are most concentrated.
