A woman's body is a complex, unparalleled organism with unique qualities. In different periods of life we face new challenges affecting quality of life. Living with gynecological pathologies is certainly not easy, but everything is overcome when worries are shared with an experienced specialist. Get to know a new method of aesthetic-curative gynecology in Lithuania, which helps to solve various gynecological problems without surgical invasion.
What is PRP therapy and what gynecological problems does it address?
PRP is the injection of the patient's blood plasma into problem areas. Properly prepared and mixed with hyaluronic acid, they are suitable for the treatment of the following indications:
Sexual dysfunction: dyspnoea (pain during intercourse), decreased sexual arousal, difficulty in achieving orgasm.
Genital diseases: vaginal atrophy (burning sensation, itching, tingling)
Treatment of Chronic Vaginal Infections: Frequent vaginal fungus or non-specific chronic vaginal infections.
Urinary tract disorders: urinary incontinence, painful urination, chronic urinary tract infection.
How is this procedure performed?
Two blood samples are taken from the patient's vein. It is centrifuged for about 5 minutes until the useful parts of the plasma are separated. The tube is then saturated with hyaluronic acid and the resulting mixture is injected into problem areas of the organs.
What happens in the body after PRP injections?
Activation of regenerative mechanisms, stimulation of fibroblast and collagen production. This restores vaginal skin tone and elasticity, stimulates vaginal secretion and restores moisture. Unlike other methods of treatment, incontinence of the urine is subject to a special PRP technique on the vaginal front wall.
Platelets are the major factors in the regeneration mechanism of hard and soft tissues. They stimulate the growth factor (FGF, PDGF, TGF-SS, EGF, VEGF) involved in stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation. They also stimulate fibroblasts and endothelial cells, causing the formation of new intercellular material and neovascularization.
It has been shown that PRP in soft tissues:
Increases collagen production;
Strengthens skin elasticity, tone and thickness;
Promotes differentiation and proliferation of stem cells;
What is the sustainability of this procedure?
Because PRP therapy is a non-stabilizing therapeutic injection, its effect is somewhat shorter. The desired effect also depends on the individual characteristics of the organism. Usually it is recommended to repeat the procedure every 3 - 6 months. To achieve a long-term effect, it is recommended to perform 2 procedures in a 1 month interval.
