Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Q&A
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Your body is full of powerful proteins, known as growth factors, that are attached to platelets in your blood. When you have an injury, blood rushes to the area and those growth factors immediately start regenerating healthy new tissues so you can heal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a way to get the healing response these growth factors have to offer, without having an injury.
To do this, you simply need a small blood draw. Your blood is deposited into a centrifuge, which rapidly spins your blood and forces platelets — and thus growth factors — to separate. This concentration gets drawn into a needle and injected into your treatment area.
Over the following few weeks, those growth factors start stimulating new tissue growth and restoring your treatment area to its more youthful state. With no downtime, no side effects, and very little discomfort, PRP can help you reverse the effects of aging and enhance your sexual health.
What can platelet-rich plasma treat?
While platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used for a wide variety of ailments, your New Day Wellness practitioner generally offers this revolutionary treatment to help with sexual health. After preparing your own PRP, they inject it directly into the base of your penis, or near your clitoris and upper vagina.
For men, this treatment is known as a Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®), while for women, it’s called an Orgasm Shot® (O-Shot®). The P-Shot and O-Shot can be effective in treating and improving:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Premature ejaculation
- Vaginal dryness
- Sexual sensitivity
- Orgasm issues
At New Day Wellness, Dr. Black is one of the few providers who have specialized training in preparing and injecting platelet-rich plasma for sexual health, so you can feel confident that your treatment is going to be safe and effective.
When will I have results after PRP injections?
It’s normal to have a little soreness or swelling after your P-Shot or O-Shot, primarily due to the injection itself. This is normal. As these initial side effects wear off, you can start noticing an improvement in your sexual health as quickly as your first week after treatment.
As new tissues continue to form in your penis or vagina, you should notice an improvement in your sexual health week after week after your treatment at New Day Wellness.
