PRP  Explained

PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma) is blood plasma with 3-5 times the concentration of plaelets.  Platelets are the the body’s first response to injury. Platelets contain growth factors that triggers repair and healing through the influx of repair and stem cells.   PRP has been used since the 1990’s in sports medicine, oral surgery and plastic surgery. There are over 4,000 studies in Pubmed about PRP therapy.


How is PRP prepared?


PRP is prepared by drawing 30 ml of blood from your arm in a similar manner as blood is drawn for routine lab work.   Then the blood is proceed with a special centrifuge to product 4 cc of PRP.




Please note that PRP is a therapy based on using your own blood to promote healing.   There is no risk of transferable infection and low risk for allergy. However, your nutritional and hormonal status will affect the outcome.   It is strongly recommended that you optimize your health as much as possible before proceeding with PRP therapy.




This procedure is truly life changing!  I dealt with vaginal lichen schlerosis for almost 10 years.  It didn't just impact my sex life, it also kept me from activities I love, like swimming in the ocean.   The condition worsened overtime despite use of multiple treatment methods.   I came to believe it was something I was just going to have to live with.  The results after Dr Peterson's treatment were beyond what I had hoped.  My skin is healthier than it has been in years.  I no longer experence painful sex and I feel like I have my life back.  Finally, somehting that works! - E.B.
