V-Shots for Rejuvenation of Intimate Areas
Rejuvenation for Women’s Sexual Performance
When we get older, our tissue starts to become more loose. The skin and mucous membrane starts to be dry and patchy, and tissue in the surrounding area can be more empty and hollow, while the hair can start to grey. As a consequence of ageing, the vaginal wall is too relaxed. The mucous membrane is thin and dry and it is not so sensitive which can make it difficult to feel pleasure during intercourse. Particularly, the vaginal orifice (entry into the vagina) is more dry leading to a more painful and unpleasant feeling when touched causing a tendency to have urinary incontinence, dribbling and wet underwear. As a consequence, atrophic vaginitis, discharge, burning sensation and painful intercourse is common. One of the methods to improve the firmness and quality of the labia minora and majora, as well as the mucous membrane of the vagina, is PRP.
Frequently asked questions
What is PRP?
PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) from the patient’s own blood platelets and stem cells are separated by centrifuge and injected into the labia majora, minora and vaginal wall.
How is it done?
Your own blood is taken from your own veins in special tubes. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge in order to separate platelets and stem cells which are injected using very tiny needles into the skin and mucous of labia minoramajora and vaginal wall.
How does it Work?
The platelets and stem cells contain growth factors and cytokines released to initiate the tissue regeneration process by stimulation of new collagen fibres, induction mesenchymal cell division and stimulation of formation of new blood vessels and tissue. It is a cascade of anti-ageing activity.The plasma itself contains many factors that areessential for rejuvenation like: vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, proteins and nutrients.
Does it hurt?
Numbing cream is applied for one hour to the area that is to be treated and it is basically painless.
The injections take around 10 to 15 minutes.
How long does it take?
Almost one hour and a half. This includes one hour with a cream applied to develop numbness and to centrifuge the blood. The injections take around 10 to 15 minutes.
Who can benefit from PRP?
The treatment is designed for patients with signs of ageing like loose and weak, empty tissue with a tendency of the skin and mucous membranes to dryness, patchiness, uneven pigmentation, a tendency to itchiness in the area and incontinence.
What are the benefits of PRP?
PRP stimulates the patient’s own cells to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin and the mucous and improves elasticity, tone and thickness, as well as colour of thisarea. Collagen fibres are able to remodel themselves; meaning folds become smoother and emptiness is less or not visible and the area is firmer.
How many sessions are necessary?
Between two and four sessions are necessary to improve the skin and tissue in this area. They should be carried out usually once per month for the first two to three months and then once every few months (2-3 times per year).
How many sessions before I see or feel an improvement?
Usually, you will see or feel improvement following the first session in a few days or weeks. The tissue will be firmer with better tone and texture, and the looseness of the mucous membrane will improve dramatically resulting in an improvement in your sex life.
How long do the benefits last?
If you choose to continue with follow-up sessions every 2 – 3 months, the improvement will be more stable and longer lasting.
What should I avoid before the treatment?
You should avoid Aspirin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Primrose oil, Nurofen, Gingko Biloba, Chinese and herbal medicine for 3 – 4 days before treatment. This is just to protect you against the remote risk of bruising. The area should be without infection of inflammations such as eczema, STD or vaginal discharges.
What could the complications be?
Occasionally minor bruising can happen. For most patients, these tiny bruises fade quickly, usually within a few days. All the components of the plasma are your own and for this reason, any immunological reactions or contamination with transmissible diseases are eliminated.
How much does it cost?
The cost of each treatment will depend on the number of tubes used during one session, and varies from $400.00 per tube.
Is it possible for men to have the PRP treatment?
Yes, the PRP therapy (P’Shots) can be used for men to improve erection or to treat erectile dysfunction, and lower urinary tract symptoms like: a tendency to incontinence and urgency.
