PRP Q & A

The Chronic Pelvic Pain Center of Northern Virginia

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Blood contains two main components: red blood cells and plasma. Plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Growth factors stimulate cell growth and promote the regeneration of tissue.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood that has been removed from the body and spun quickly to concentrate the platelet. PRP is then injected into different parts of the body to promote healthy skin regeneration.

What is platelet-rich plasma used to treat?

PRP has many different medicinal and cosmetic applications. Dr. Delgado primarily uses PRP for:

  • Facial rejuvenation: PRP therapy stimulates facial collagen production, increases blood supply, and smooths wrinkles and scars to restore a more youthful appearance.
  • Vaginal rejuvenation: PRP therapy combats vaginal changes caused by childbirth, menopause, or chronic health conditions. It also helps to increase natural lubrication and improve vaginal tone for greater sexual sensation and pleasure.
  • Hair loss: Growth factors in blood platelets stimulate hair follicle activity and promote new growth. PRP increases hair count and thickness.

What kind of results can I expect from platelet-rich plasma injections, and how long will they last?

Dr. Delgado offers customized treatment plans tailored to your needs. Results will vary depending on the procedure and your treatment goals.

PRP facial rejuvenation results may appear immediately after treatment and increase gradually over the months following treatment. For some women, the benefits of PRP last up to a year or more.

Some women do have instant results from PRP vaginal rejuvenation, but most begin to notice improvements over the course of several weeks. Dr. Delgado may recommend a follow-up treatment after a year to maintain the benefits of PRP vaginal rejuvenation.

With PRP therapy for hair loss, most women first notice a decrease in hair shedding, followed by new hair growth within two to three months. Dr. Delgado usually recommends several PRP therapy treatments to continue the stimulation of growth factors promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss.

Dr. Delgado is your partner in achieving greater health and wellness. She believes every woman should feel vibrant and confident at every stage of life. Innovative, nonsurgical cosmetic treatments like PRP can help you achieve that.
