What is vaginal PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a derivative of a patient’s own blood, which can promote expedient tissue regeneration and healing. PRP is used to treat a range of gynaecological conditions, including vaginal atrophy or dryness, prolapse, vulval lichen sclerosus, painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, and loss of libido.

The treatment works by taking a patient’s blood, like a normal blood test, but the plasma component is then isolated. The patient can be given a topical anaesthetic, which makes the treatment relatively more comfortable

What does PRP do for women with conditions like vaginal atrophy?

In genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), vaginal atrophy occurs as a result of less oestrogen, which leads to thinning and drying of the vaginal walls.

Many women who are approaching or in menopause suffer from symptoms like vaginal dryness, burning and/or itching of the vagina, pain or bleeding during intercourse, vaginal discharge, and spotting. Distressing urinary symptoms can also be present, such as urinary tract infections, burning and discomfort with urination, frequent urination and incontinence.

PRP contains a higher concentration of platelets than normal blood, which means more growth factors are released into the targeted area. Vaginal PRP uses these growth factors in the patient’s own plasma to help cells multiply and form new tissue, which accelerates and enhances the healing process.

How can Eve On 21 help vaginal atrophy with PRP?

At Eve On 21, we are committed to offering the latest in treatment and innovation. As such, we offer vaginal PRP as an autologous, non-hormonal option for women living with vaginal atrophy, because the natural process of using a patient’s own plasma can be effective in the production of ‘younger’ tissue growth.

Vaginal PRP can help vaginal atrophy and laxity, as well as improve sexual function. When delivered into the vagina, PRP triggers stem cell multiplication, promoting collagen and elastin production, as well as neovascularisation inside the vagina and clitoris. This leads to improved vaginal hydration, along with easier stimulation and arousal.
