If you haven’t already started hearing about Platelet-Rich Plasma injections, also known as PRP Therapy, you soon will. That’s because this once-considered cutting-edge, futuristic treatment is now becoming increasingly common among advanced medical providers to treat everything from joint pain to sexual function to hair loss.

“Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.” 1

Intimate Wellness Washington County, WIFor PRP therapies, the Platelet-rich Plasma is cultivated directly from a patient’s own bloodstream to be used in their individual treatment. A provider carries out a simple blood draw, then process that sample in a special centrifuge that separates key components of the blood that are vital for PRP therapy. Once complete, the provider is left with a concentrated solution to be used for treatment.

Essentially, we extract your body’s own natural healing and growth factors, concentrate them, and inject them back into your body where treatment is needed, providing a powerful boost of natural healing and regeneration.

This brief, minimally invasive, essentially pain free therapy generally requires little to no downtime, and time and again has demonstrated marked results across a variety of conditions.

In addition to addressing joint pain and hair loss using PRP injections, what I consider to be one of the most exciting PRP therapies is the area of sexual wellness for men and women.

As we shared with clients in our recent newsletter (Sign up for our News Letter above):
Sexual health is an integral part of overall wellbeing. Even the Mayo Clinic says “A healthy sex life not only is fulfilling, but also is good for other aspects of your life, including your physical health and self-esteem” 2 while AARP has reported that “While a regular sex life has been shown to boost mood and improve relationships, it turns out that having sex once a week can also prolong your life…”3
