A PRP injection uses your body's natural healing cells, the platelets, to treat a range of health concerns. PRP consists of a large number of platelets (cells found in your bloodstream) mixed with enough plasma (the liquid part of your blood) to use in an injection.
Dr. Yuabova produces PRP in the office using your own blood, so it's a safe procedure without side effects.
Platelets release proteins called growth factors. Then the growth factors:
The platelets injected into your body do the same thing when you get a PRP injection. As a result, the tissues treated with PRP heal faster, giving you long-lasting relief from the pain.
You may need a PRP treatment to boost your body’s response to a severe injury or if you injure tissues that don’t have a good blood supply.
Dr. Yuabova uses PRP to treat:
Dr. Yuabova injects PRP into your joints, where the treatment eases your pain and heals conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, and torn ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles.
After Dr. Yuabova injects PRP into the balding or thinning areas of your scalp, the platelets stimulate healing in the hair follicles. As a result, the follicles start growing new, thicker hair to replace hair loss.
PRP facials rejuvenate your skin by:
Dr. Yuabova may simply inject PRP under your skin or perform microneedling and apply PRP over the tiny wounds.
PRP improves sexual wellness in men and women. As women get older, the loss of estrogen often causes vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, loss of vaginal lubrication, and bleeding after intercourse. They also have a higher risk of developing urinary incontinence.
An injection of PRP restores collagen and blood vessels in the vagina, improving all these problems and allowing women to enjoy sexual intercourse.
In men, PRP injections treat erectile dysfunction by restoring health and function to the tissues in their penis. PRP improves sensitivity and ejaculations, strengthens erections, and may increase the size of their penis.
Though it sounds painful to have an injection in delicate tissues like the vagina or penis, Dr. Yuabova always uses topical anesthetics to ensure you don't have any discomfort.
