What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary treatment that Dr. Espinal uses at Lady’s Care Center to treat sexual dysfunction, incontinence, and other gynecological conditions.

Platelets in your blood have a high concentration of growth factors to help your body heal when injured. Platelets help reduce inflammation and are rich in nutrients and growth factors.

PRP therapy uses the natural properties of platelets to accelerate the body’s healing and regenerative processes.

During treatment, Dr. Espinal takes a sample of your blood and runs it through a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from other blood matter. She then injects the PRP solution into targeted areas to induce collagen production and tissue repair.

Although injecting your blood into your body may sound dubious and scary, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a science-based regenerative treatment.

Ladynez Espinal, MD, uses PRP to take advantage of your body’s natural healing process to combat a wide range of gynecological issues. To learn more about PRP therapy and how it can benefit you, call the Lady’s Care Center office in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

What does PRP help with?

PRP therapy triggers natural revitalization processes that can help with gynecological disorders like:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lack of orgasms
  • Pain during intercourse

What are the side effects of PRP?

Since Dr. Espinal uses a PRP solution that is a by-product of your blood, the plasma leaves a very small chance of infection, or allergy when it’s injected. Some patients notice swelling and redness at the site of the injection, but this goes away by itself in a day.

How long does the treatment and recovery time last?

Dr. Espinal usually performs PRP treatments in under an hour at Lady’s Care Center. The injection itself takes five minutes, but before that, she does a physical exam, draws your blood, runs it through the centrifuge, and answers any last-minute questions you may have.

PRP doesn’t require any downtime, and you can resume your normal daily activities right after treatment. Dr. Espinal recommends that you avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and consuming anti-inflammatory medications or supplements.

Is PRP for everyone?

Dr. Espinal recommends PRP therapy except if you have a blood-related disorder, like:

Hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, Blood cancer

If you have a blood condition, these issues can affect your platelet levels and compromise their regenerative qualities. This makes your blood ineffective in delivering the healing properties during treatment.
