There are two popular procedures that I perform regularly using patients’ own blood products that have proven to be safe, effective, easy and relatively painless.
These procedures are safe because they use your own blood products (platelets) that have growth factors, and they are effective because these platelets attract stem cells to repair tissue, in effect reversing the aging process in the tissues.
The use of PRP has been around for decades for repair of tendons, ligaments and cartilage. The last few years the use has expanded to rejuvenate other tissues like hair, genitals, and skin.
Improvements in vaginal health (O-Shot ®)
Studies, and my experience with my patients, show that injection of PRP in the vaginal area (O-Shot ®) can improve sensation, lubrication, and improve symptoms of incontinence which can last a year or more. It also can alleviate a condition called lichen sclerosis which causes atrophy and discomfort in the vaginal area. Click here for more information about the O-Shot ®.
A fuller head of hair
For hair restoration, four injections of PRP into the scalp over a few months can revitalize hair follicles for a thicker head of hair. Periodic maintenance every 6-12 months will keep those follicles healthy. Click here to read more about PRP for Hair Restoration.
These procedures are easy and painless. Blood is drawn and a special centrifuge separates the platelets and the plasma from the other blood products. For the genital PRP, we use an anesthetic cream before injection so there is no pain at all. For the scalp, there is minor discomfort with injection using a very small needle on the crown of the head. Both procedures take less then 5-10 minutes.
