Resolve Urinary Incontinence with the PRP Incontinence Injection.

The Incontinence PRP injection procedure is a very specific method of using blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate the vagina to help assist in relieving women with stress urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine. Stress incontinence happens when physical movement or activity — such as coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting — puts pressure stress on your bladder

More than 13 million people in the United States, young and old, experience incontinence. Women experience incontinence twice as often as men. Pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and the structure of the female urinary tract account for this difference. Stress incontinence occurs when the muscles and other tissues that support the bladder (pelvic floor muscles) and the muscles that regulate the release of urine weaken.

PRP therapy can help to tighten the vagina internally so women can have better control over their bladder functions. For women dealing with stress incontinence, PRP therapy can provide a huge relief.

The whole procedure for processing the blood and injecting the growth factors takes less than 10 minutes in the doctor’s office!

What Does the Doctor Do?

First the doctor or nurse applies a numbing cream to the vagina and the arm. Then blood is drawn from the arm in the same was as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process takes about 10 minutes and can be done there in the room with the patient. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina.

Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain.

Higher concentrations of calcium chloride can usually be found in the tissue than in the blood, so when the doctor adds calcium chloride to the PRP, then the platelets think that tissue injury released the calcium into the blood stream. PRP has been used effectively for a variety of treatments for more than 20 years. Over 500,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no significant side effects or complications reported (unlike the granuloma formation that happens with other accepted procedures).
