Skin Conditions and PRP: What You Can Expect

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative and promising approach in regenerative medicine that harnesses the body’s natural healing properties to treat various skin conditions. At our Integrative Care Clinic, we have successfully integrated PRP treatments into our holistic approach to skin health and rejuvenation.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated solution derived from a person’s blood. It contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other vital proteins. These elements play a crucial role in the body’s natural healing process. When introducing PRP into targeted areas of the skin, it can stimulate collagen production, enhance tissue repair, and improve blood circulation, offering a natural rejuvenation method.

The PRP Procedure:

  1. Blood Draw: A small amount of your blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test.
  2. Separation: The blood is processed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other blood components.
  3. Numbing cream to your skin that takes the ouch away from this procedure.

  4. 4. The PRP is then either injected or an FDA approved skin pen is used to create hundreds of tiny micro punctures in your skin and the PRP is applied to the skin before and after.

Conditions Treated with PRP:

Acne Scars: PRP promotes the formation of new collagen and improves skin texture, helping to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines: PRP can smoothen wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating collagen production and restoring a youthful appearance.

Alopecia (Hair Loss): PRP therapy can stimulate hair follicles, encouraging hair regrowth in individuals suffering from certain types of hair loss.

Skin Discoloration: PRP can help to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones and dark spots.

Chronic Ulcers and Wounds: PRP enhances wound healing, reducing the healing time and improving the appearance of scars.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED): PRP injections, often termed the “P-Shot,” can enhance blood flow to the penis, potentially improving erection quality.

Sensitivity: Some men report increased penile sensitivity post-PRP treatment.

Performance: PRP can potentially enhance sexual stamina and overall satisfaction.

Increased Sensitivity: PRP can enhance clitoral and vaginal sensitivity, increasing sexual pleasure.

Lubrication: PRP may aid in increasing natural lubrication, reducing symptoms of vaginal dryness.

Painful Intercourse: PRP can potentially help alleviate pain during intercourse, often linked to vaginal dryness or atrophy.

Are All Centrifuges the Same?

We use the Emcyte Pure PRP® system. It extracts the highest concentrations of platelets on the market while simultaneously removing 99% of red blood cells (RBCs), which can hinder the regenerative process. Many other PRP systems fail to deliver a final injectable that is considered platelet-rich. Unlike many other systems, Emcyte is a completely closed system throughout all processing steps that meet the highest sterility standards. So, if you have a PRP injection, start with the best equipment to give you the highest quality product and maximize your success.
