Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves harvesting the patients’ own plasma-enriched growth factors from blood, and re-injecting them into the body. This is done by drawing blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, and separating the platelet-rich-plasma from the rest of the blood. We routinely use PRP under ultrasound guidance to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries as it accelerates the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. PRP can also be used to treat sexual dysfunction in both men and women, with the P-Shot or O-Shot. Finally, it can be used cosmetically for facial treatments (Vampire Facial) and hair rejuvenation.
Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®)
The P-shot® is a new, noninvasive treatment that aims to alleviate male sexual dysfunction by re-injecting plasma-enriched growth factors into specific areas of the penis. The P-shot® ostensibly stimulates blood flow and rejuvenates tissue, leading to increased girth of the penis. It treats erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation by naturally rehabilitating penile tissue, and is safe with most medications and medical conditions. It can also be used to correct painful complications of Peyronie’s Disease.
The O-Shot® (Orgasm Shot®)
The O-Shot® (Orgasm Shot®) is a new, noninvasive treatment that aims to alleviate female sexual dysfunction by injecting PRP directly into the vaginal area. The growth factors naturally rejuvenate the vagina and clitoris, alleviating sexual dysfunction, urinary stress incontinence, Lichen sclerosus and Lichen planus. The O-shot® increases libido and helps with achieving orgasm. It improves vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and chronic pain from episiotomy scars. It also helps with interstitial cystitis, postpartum fecal incontinence and chronic pain from surgical mesh.
The “vampire” or “PRP facial” is a trendy skin care treatment that involves injecting PRP directly into the face to promote skin cell renewal by promoting the body’s own natural ability to heal. The platelet-rich-plasma from blood stimulate collagen production in the face. This increases the integrity of the base layer of the skin, and helps tighten, smooth and improve skin tone by repairing wrinkles, scars and pigmentation.
