Men and women who are feeling as if their sexual function needs a boost can now turn to PRP shots for a natural solution. PRP injections can treat female sexual disorder, female orgasmic disorder, and low sexual desire, as well as urinary incontinence and dyspareunia (pain during sex). PRP injections can also be used to treat male erectile dysfunction, as well as Peyronies diseases.

How Does It Work?

During both treatments, a small amount of blood is taken, and then placed into a centrifuge which will separate the concentrated platelets, or PRP, from the rest of the blood. PRP offers a healing response by releasing growth and regeneration factors. PRP also causes a rapid increase in stem cells, which can transform into any type of tissue that needs repair, which makes it a very versatile treatment able to address many different areas of the body.

PRP shot is a simple, in-office procedure during which the patient’s own PRP is injected into the vagina, clitoris, and G-spot for women, and into various areas in the penis for men. Before the injection, topical anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment area, and very thin needles are used, so the experience is virtually painless for both men and women. There is also no downtime needed, which means patients can return to work or their everyday activities right away. Patients are also free to have sexual intercourse the same day of the treatment.

Results

Following the PRP shot, women will be able to enjoy improved sensation during sexual intercourse, as well as an increase in vaginal orgasms. Treatment can last up to 18 months, though more frequent treatments can also be done.

Men will be able to enjoy improved sexual function and sensitivity. Treatments should be repeated every three months for optimal results. Once your desired outcome is reached, just one treatment a year is needed to maintain results.

Now more than ever, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation is being sought after by men and women alike for a quick refresh without the downtime. Microneedling is a popular nonsurgical treatment option to rejuvenate the skin with minimal downtime. It can also be combined with PRP to help boost results for an even more noticeable improvement in rejuvenation.

Microneedling

A microneedling treatment involves the use of a special device that contains many fine needles. These needles puncture the skin at various depths to create micro injuries in the skin. Each puncture stimulates the release of growth factors and cytokines to stimulate neovascularization (the natural formation of new blood vessels) and neocollagenesis (the process of collagen stimulation). This helps in the creation of new, healthy cells for an improvement in skin texture and firmness. This treatment is also great for improving fine lines and wrinkles, reducing acne scars, lightening hyperpigmentation and sun spots, and reducing the appearance of large pores.

PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment entails drawing blood from the patient like a standard blood draw at the doctor’s office. This blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.

PRP can be applied to the skin following microneedling treatments to ensure that the PRP is fully absorbed. When PRP is used along with microneedling, PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits for optimal rejuvenation. PRP can also help to address puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, so you can look as good as you feel. Plus, because microneedling with PRP is minimally invasive, there is minimal recovery time needed. In fact, patients can usually return to work later that day.

Are you interested in rejuvenating your complexion, without the incisions, stitches, and downtime? If so, microneedling with PRP could be a good match for you. Take the first step towards a more youthful you by contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sweat.
