What Is PRP and How CAN IT HELP ME!?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) comes from your own blood and can stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are one of the cells in our blood and when activated, they can release growth factors and other proteins. We have seen many women with satisfying results in as little as a few days with the Intimate Shot, with benefits lasting up to 18 months, individual results may vary.

What Benefits Can a Woman Have from the PRP Intimate Shot?

  • Decreased or completely resolved pain during sex (dyspareunia)
  • Increased ability to have vaginal orgasms
  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
  • A tighter more elastic vaginal canal
  • Decreased or resolved overactive bladder and/or urinary incontinence
  • Stronger and more frequent orgasms
  • Increased natural lubrication

How Does the PRP Intimate Shot Work?

The growth factors & proteins released by the high concentration of platelets in PRP in turn activate stems cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In this case, it activates the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become
“younger” with improved functional potential. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occurs and further aids in tissue repair. 

How Is the PRP for the Intimate Shot Acquired and does it Hurt?

A small amount of blood is drawn in the office at the time of the procedure. Your blood is then spun in a specially designed centrifuge which separates the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelets are isolated and then injected back into the body wherever their benefits are needed. Since numbing cream is applied before the injection, there is minimal pain during the procedure.

How Long Does the PRP Intimate Shot Procedure Take to Perform?

The Intimate Shot is performed in our office in Birmingham. It usually takes about 60 minutes from start to finish but we always allow more time if needed. You may drive yourself home after the procedure.

How Can I Get the MOST out of MY TREATMENT!

If you want to maximize your results we recommend combining your treatment with our Zimmer Zwave treatment, you can read more up on it here. This combination is recommended since the inflammatory response created by the shockwave treatment encourages the growth factors and recruited stem cells from the PRP to stay in the “damaged” area longer to help with the “repair” process. This shockwave treatment both enhances the effectiveness of the PRP Intimate Shot and also creates its own independent results. In addition to the Zimmer Zwave, performing kegel exercises or using an Intensity Pelvic Floor Stimulation device is recommended for achieving optimal success from this procedure. We will discuss this further at your appointment.

When Can I Resume Sexual Activity After the PRP Intimate Shot?

You may resume sexual activity as soon as the numbing wears off. An increase in sexual response often can be seen within days of the procedure but may vary. Some see a difference in a few days and others in a few weeks and for many, the increase is dramatic.

What Are the Potential Side Effects of the PRP Intimate Shot?

Since PRP is extracted from your own blood, there are few and only minor potential side effects. These include minor bleeding or bruising, swelling, and very rarely infection.
