Sexual rejuvenation with PRP is an injectable treatment that utilizes platelet-rich plasma to enhance and increase the body’s sexual functions. Platelet-rich plasma is concentrated blood that has been centrifuged to remove all the red blood cells, leaving it rich with platelets, which are aspects of the blood that initiate healing, and cellular repair. PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions relating to injury, hair loss, dermatology, dentistry, sports medicine, and sexual health, among others. Studies have indicated that PRP therapy can productively treat erectile dysfunction and male sexual health. Furthermore, additional studies have concluded that PRP therapy effectively treats female sexual dysfunction, with high rates of improvement in desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and most importantly, satisfaction after treatment. The great thing about platelet-rich plasma is that it comes from your own body, so nothing artificial comes into contact with your body, and there’s no chance of an allergic reaction.

About Sexual Dysfunction & PRP
While aging is normal, it can be a challenge when it comes to the pleasures of the bedroom. Women’s vaginal tissue and libido change due to hormone fluctuations and childbirth. Men experience erectile dysfunction and have trouble getting or maintaining an erection.
Varying factors like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and obesity may cause these issues. They can also be the side effects of medications like antidepressants. If you haven’t already, make sure to get a physical just to make sure that any sexual dysfunction is not the result of a concerning underlying health condition.
PRP injections use a concentrated isolate of your blood that is rich in growth factors that provide rejuvenating effects to the intimate areas of the body. It can stimulate tissue growth for stronger, healthier skin and vascular development for firmer erections and vaginal tissue health.

Preparation & Procedure
Luckily, there is not much preparation required. Once the PRP has been processed from their own blood sample, patients should be aware that treatment involves a near painless injection into the area being treated, which would be either the penis or vagina. It is an undeniable fact of the procedure, but it is the most efficient and effective way to deliver this essential therapy to the body parts in question. Thankfully, Dr. Michaels will provide a local anesthetic to ensure minimal to no discomfort. Meanwhile, think of the love and joy that lies ahead for you and your partner.
There may be some minor side effects that should fade in four to six days that can include swelling, redness, and bruising.
Recovery goes by quickly. Patients can resume normal activities the same day or the next.
Avoid sexual intercourse for a couple of days after treatment to avoid infection. Men should limit strenuous physical activity for a couple of days as well so that sweating or chafing does not irritate the treated area.
In regards to sexual health and functions, there have been multiple studies that have concluded that platelet-rich plasma treatments are an innovative therapeutic approach. It is affordable, simple, easily performed, and effective. It also has promising results and no known side effects.
For men, PRP treatments can lead to stronger erections, increasing the circulation within the penis. If an ED prescription like Viagra is being used, PRP can make it even more effective. As a bonus, platelet-rich plasma therapy can also make the skin appear more youthful and radiant.
For women, PRP treatments can successfully restore and rejuvenate the vaginal and clitoral tissues, especially in women who have had low sex drives, trouble reaching orgasm, and painful intercourse. Healthier vaginal tissue improves comfort, which leads to better arousal, lubrication, endurance, and intensity of orgasm.

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that fill in the gaps left from fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers also provide additional volume to areas where there was none previously, as well as sculpt plumper, lifted facial features.
Botox is the famous injectable neuromodulator that blocks the release of the chemical that tenses our muscles, creating a taut, youthful look free from fine lines and wrinkles. Great for both men and women.
A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing method that removes the outer layers of the facial skin through a chemical solution that encourages a controlled injury. The healing process reconstructs new skin tissue, with the dead skin finally peeling off. This new skin layer emerges smoother, more vibrant, and less wrinkled as a result.
