Vaginal atrophy is common in postmenopausal women due to lack of estrogen, in women after total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy as also in women who have undergone radiotherapy.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment is a new biological solution for tissue regeneration. PRP is an autologous (material from the woman herself) factor, which contributes naturally to the regeneration of the vagina. Helps tissue hydrate and rejuvenate.
Studies have shown that when PRP is injected, stem cells proliferate, resulting in PRP rejuvenating the skin and regenerating healthy vaginal tissue. It has an effect duration of about 6 months.
For the preparation of PRP we take blood from the patient. The PRP is then collected and separated for use with a special separating device, which is injected into specific parts of the vagina.
It is a safe method because we are talking about our own blood and so we are not at risk of contagious diseases, while at the same time it is neutral for the patient immunological system, thus there is no risk for allergic reactions or hypersensitivity.
The success rate of PRP treatment is 85% – 90%.
No recovery time is needed and the return to sex life is immediate.
As local anesthesia is performed in the vaginal area, the treatment is completely painless.
This treatment effectively treats female sexual dysfunction and lack of orgasms due to vaginal dryness and atrophy. This is achieved by increasing the sensitivity and stimulation of the clitoris, enhancing the natural lubrication of the vagina and reducing pain during sex in those women who suffer from dyspareunia.
