PRP Therapy A novel method for facial skin and vaginal rejuvenation
With age, we observe many changes in our skin as it begins to loose volume, moisture decreases, wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear and loss of skin elasticity leading to sagging of the skin tissue. We see these changes appearing first on our face however, same effects are observed in the vagina and vulva region. Natural events like ageing, childbirth and hormonal changes affect the skin and tissue in your vagina, which leads to laxity, dryness and reduced sexual sensation. At StemGenn therapeutics, due to our enriched experience in skin and vaginal rejuvenation, we have a unique understanding of the concerns and issues that women encounter as they age. One of the techniques called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP therapy) offers an innovative treatment for women suffering from problems associated with aging skin (facial or vaginal).
WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
Our blood is composed of a variety of cells and components which have different functions in our bodies. Plasma is an ingredient of the blood and appears as a clear, yellowish liquid consisting of about 90% water. 55% of the blood volume is made up of plasma. The primary role of plasma is to aid the smooth flow of blood through the body, transport proteins that are crucial for immune support and clotting.
Platelets are a subset of cells found in blood. Apart from red blood cells, and white blood cells whose main function is to enable clotting. The inactive form of the platelets float around in the blood until our body detects an injury. The damaged blood vessels in the area send a signal. In response to which the platelets get activated and accumulate at the site causing the blood to clot. These cells are enriched with a wide variety of signaling proteins and growth factors which have the ability to trigger wound healing processes in our bodies.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the plasma component of the blood with higher number of platelets than the normal concentration. PRP is obtained by drawing some of your own blood and subjecting it to the process of centrifugation. Which separates the PRP from other components in the blood. It is then reintroduced into your body via micro needling (for the face) or injections (for vaginal rejuvenation).
HOW DOES PRP REJUVENATE VAGINA?

HOW DOES PRP THERAPY FIGHTs AGING ON YOUR FACE?
Since the platelets contain a plethora of stimulating growth factors which ignites the tissue remodeling and regeneration response at the targeted site. PRP therapy can boost cellular growth, resulting in more supple and smoother skin. Unlike Botox or Fillers which add volume to your face artificially. PRP exploits the natural ability of your own body to rejuvenate your skin. The serum is absorbed into the face through tiny punctures which are created by a micro-needling device or injecting into your skin. Your body recognizes the resulting miniscule punctures as injuries and immediately starts the healing process. Resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin which stimulate new cell growth. The therapy smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, boosts volume and remove scars naturally.
PRP facial treatments offer best results for people with mild to moderate signs of aging. It is the best skin rejuvenation option for those who are looking for a more natural, long-term solution to their skin issues. The improvements may seem gradual as compared to other treatments. With botox or fillers as this therapy relies the body’s natural wound healing mechanism to regenerate the damaged tissue.
