About Platelet-rich Plasma
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it is a natural substance that can be injected into your body. Ironically, PRP actually comes from your body as well! A blood sample is taken and a centrifuge is used to isolate the plasma from the sample. From here, the plasma is concentrated until you’re left solely with the PRP solution. You can then inject this back into a specific part of your body to experience various benefits.
Why is plasma used? Well, platelet-rich plasma is a component of blood that contains growth factors that form clots. In essence, this is how your body stops bleeding when you have a cut. The plasma swarms the side, rebuilding the area. As such, injecting part of your body with PRP can help accelerate cell growth in that area and promote the natural healing process.
In the cosmetic world, PRP can be used to treat so many different issues. At Rejuve, we offer PRP as a standalone treatment, or alongside other procedures. Currently, it is useful for the following problems:
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP reduces hair loss and can make your hair a lot thicker. This is because it stimulates stem cell growth in the area, encouraging the production of new hair follicles.
PRP for Wrinkles & Fine Lines
A PRP injection on its own can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It supercharges collagen production, making your skin appear smoother and tighter. You can also pair PRP with microneedling for an even better skin rejuvenation effect!
PRP for Sexual Health
That’s right, PRP is useful for improving a woman’s sexual health! This is done via the O-Shot, which is a treatment using PRP to encourage collagen production and new blood vessels in the vagina. It can ease pain during sex, increase sensations in the vagina, improve vaginal lubrication, enhance vaginal tightness, and prevent issues like urinary incontinence.
