Platelets are specialized cells that circulate in a relatively low concentration in your blood. They are critical to healing injured or damaged tissue. Platelets clump together to form a blood clot at the site of damaged tissue. They also release growth factors and other cytokines that get the healing process underway by promoting tissue repair and new blood vessel formation.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is produced by taking your blood in a special tube and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red and white blood cells. The resulting plasma is highly concentrated with platelets and can be re-injected where healing and/or rejuvenation is needed. A key component in the healing process is increased blood flow to the area. The growth factors and cytokines released from your platelets accomplish this by dilating existing blood vessels and creating new ones via a process called angiogenesis.
More than a decade ago, one of the earliest uses for PRP therapy was in orthopedics and sports medicine to treat injured muscles, ligaments and tendons. Many sports medicine specialists have found that PRP to accelerate healing and allow athletes to return to competition faster than physical therapy, cortisone injections and even surgery, without the complications associated those modalities.
In the last several years, PRP has been used in Aesthetic Medicine as an effective and natural method of facial rejuvenation. PRP can improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and rosacea. It can be particularly effective in areas where dermal fillers, botox and lasers typically are not, such as around the eyes and mouth. PRP therapy can also improve the shape and contour of women’s breasts and can restore youthful nipple sensitivity.
As the regenerative power of PRP has become better understood, we realize that its ability to stimulate healing and increase blood flow gives us a natural method to improve sexual wellness.
