Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections have been used for many years to treat any number of aesthetic and medical issues. Specifically, PRP treatments involve the injection of a patient’s own blood with concentrated platelets to promote healing, rejuvenation, and more. If you’ve been interested in exploring PRP treatment for its anti-aging or sexual health benefits, now is a great opportunity to learn more. From there, you might consider scheduling a consultation with our very own Dr. Croland to learn more about how PRP injections could benefit you in the Charlotte, NC area.
Platelet Rich Plasma in Aesthetic Medicine
One of the most common applications of PRP is for its anti-aging benefits, especially when it comes to the skin. There are many ways in which PRP injections could help you look years younger, beginning with its effectiveness in treating hair loss. Carefully targeted PRP injections on the scalp can be used to help stimulate the growth of hair follicles, allowing your hair to begin growing back naturally and without the use of medications or other chemicals that can carry risk of adverse side effects.
PRP injections are also commonly used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, helping to reveal more youthful and vibrant skin. The Vampire Facelift, for example, uses PRP injections as a safer alternative to traditional Botox to fill in fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Similarly, the popular PRP-based Vampire Facial utilizes your body’s own blood cells to rejuvenate the skin and promote healthy skin cell re-growth. As a result, the skin appears fuller and more youthful. And because these injections don’t utilize risky chemicals or other drugs, there is little risk of side effects. Furthermore, the injections can be repeated as often as needed to help you achieve your desired results.
Platelet Rich Plasma in Men’s and Women’s Sexual Health
The effectiveness of PRP injections, however, doesn’t just end with aesthetics. There have also been a number of proven benefits of PRP for men’s and women’s sexual health. Take, for example, the increasingly popular “O-shot” for women. This procedure uses a concentration of a woman’s own blood cells injected carefully into the clitoris. The purpose of this injection is to increase the production of vaginal tissue to not only achieve a more youthful appearance, but improved sexual function and ability to reach orgasm as well. Many women who have this injection done report improved natural lubrication, increased sexual desire, and stronger orgasm. Some women who had previously been suffering with urinary incontinence also report improvement in this regard after the “O-shot” injection.
Women aren’t the only ones who stand to benefit from PRP injections for sexual health. The priapus shot (also known as the P-shot) for men is a surgery-free and drug-free option for men looking to improve their sexual performance. Specifically, this penis injection is meant to help men increase their overall sexual stamina, achieve penis enlargement, and reach longer and firmer erections. This injection is especially common for men who have not had any success with pills in the past, or men who have experienced sexual health issues as a result of prostate cancer, an enlarged prostate, or other underlying medical problems.
Overall, platelet rich plasma injections have a lot to offer in the way of both sexual health benefits and overall aesthetic benefits.
