“As a new Mom, I was struggling with urine leakage. Could not exercise or laugh freely. Kegel’s helped somewhat. My life changed the evening after I had PRP for incontinence.... The procedure was painless! It’s been a year and a half, and I haven’t had any accidents. As a bonus, my lubrication is better, sex is more satisfying & less painful. PRP has taken my relationship to a new level.” —Name Withheld at Client's Request, Northbrook
What is PRP for Women?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is a part of a category of medicine called Regenerative Medicine. In simple terms, the process involves taking a small amount of your blood, concentrating your blood’s platelets, and then injecting the resulting platelet-rich plasma into an area of your body in need of regeneration.
The PRP Female Shot is a vaginal procedure where platelet-rich plasma is injected into an area near the clitoris and just inside the vagina, beneath the urethra. The PRP stimulates the growth of new cells, vessels, collagen, and fibroblasts in this area, making it more sensitive and healthy. What does all that mean to you? A number of things!
What are the Benefits of the PRP Female Shot?
- Increased Stimulation
- Increased Natural Lubrication
- Increased Ability to Have a Vaginal Orgasm
- May Decrease Stress Urinary Incontinence
- Quick In-Office Procedure
- No-Risk of an Allergic Reaction
- Virtually Painless

What Does PRP Do?
Who Has Used PRP Therapy?
PRP treatment has gained widespread recognition in the sports with athletes like Tiger woods being treated several times following knee surgery, and Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers received PRP therapy prior to winning Super Bowl XLIII.
It’s been the talk of the town in Hollywood with many high-profile actors and actresses successfully undergoing PRP cosmetic treatments.
What is the History of PRP?
PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. Although an emerging technology and technique in sports medicine, it has been used since the mid-1990’s in dental, orthopedics, sports medicine, oral surgery to aid in soft tissue recovery following plastic surgery.
PRP has evolved and now being successfully being used as a “NATURAL” holistic alternative to cosmetic facial injections, facial fillers (Liquid face lift), for hair restoration, breast lift, treatment for incontinence, erectile dysfunction and much more.
How is PRP Administered?
PRP therapy, which takes about 20 minutes to administer, begins with collection of 30-60 milliliters of the patient’s blood depending on the procedure. The sample blood is then separated by spinning it in a centrifuge for up to 30 minutes. This process results in the platelet-rich plasma, which is rich in growth factors.
Platelets function as a natural reservoir for growth factors that are essential to repair injured tissues. The growth factors that the platelets secrete stimulate tissue recovery by increasing collagen production, enhancing tendon stem cell proliferation, and tenocyte-related gene and protein expression. These growth factors also stimulate blood flow and cause cartilage to become more firm and resilient. PRP activates tenocytes to proliferate quickly and produce collagen to repair injured tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles.
Does the PRP Treatment Hurt?
The majority of PRP treatments are done with topical numbing for an hour and you will not feel anything. We numb the treatment area and in some cases do a nerve block to minimize the discomfort / sensation experienced by some. Average feelings last no more than 3 (three) minutes.
How Long Does PRP Treatment Last?
Although results vary by client, most PRP procedures last anywhere from 18 months to 3 years.
What Are the Side Effects?
Typically, there are no side effects because the procedure is done with your own blood/plasma. The worst we’ve seen and heard reports of is that the first treatment may not be very effective for a small number of patients.
However, because needles are used to do the injections, there is a possibility of bruising.
We always advise reviewing your medications with the Halo Team and stopping all supplements, including fish oils, 1 week prior to any PRP treatment.
Can I Do More than 1 Treatment Within a Year?
Yes, PRP can be done any time in an untreated area. For areas that have been treated, remember that results are not immediate. We advise our clients to wait 3-6 months before assessing results.
