what is prp therapy?
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP involves concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and from start to finish can be completed within 30 minutes. Blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in a syringe and injected back into the tissues where needed. Growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue, including areas in the face, scalp, sex organs, muscles and joints.
Since PRP is extracted from your own blood, there’s no risk of side effects. Over 100,000 procedures have been performed to date with no complications reported. PRP therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic issues.
WHAT ARE PRP INJECTIONS FOR SEXUAL HEALTH?
For men, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections are used to enhance the size or function of the penis. For women, PRP injections are used to facilitate more intense orgasms of the G-spot, clitoris and/or other vaginal structures, as well as enhance libido and vaginal lubrication. PRP injections for penile enhancement and vaginal rejuvenation involve separating platelets from the patient’s own blood and injecting them directly into the genitals after numbing the area for comfort.
HOW MUCH DO PRP INJECTIONS COST?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation for PRP injections as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your PRP injections, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PRP INJECTIONS?
Suitable candidates for PRP injections are men and women experiencing sexual function issues affecting some aspects of their quality of life. For men, it may be issues with erectile dysfunction, and for women, it could be poor lubrication or other vaginal changes that have resulted in decreased sexual pleasure or urinary incontinence.
CAN I SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION FOR PRP INJECTIONS?
The first step to using PRP injections to improve your sex life is to consult with Dr. Katherine. During your initial consultation, Dr. Katherine will ask about your health history, current symptoms or complications, and your sex life. Even if you’re embarrassed, don’t hold back. Tell Dr. Katherine everything you know, so she can help you determine the best treatment for you. If she determines that PRP injections could be a good option for you, she will develop a treatment plan for you to consider. If you’re not ready to come into our health and wellness center for a consultation, you can also schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Katherine.
