Platelet-Rich Plasma and Genital Rejuvenation

Skinmed. 2019 Jul 1;17(4):272-274. eCollection 2019.

Abstract

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be incorporated into the treatment of androgenic alopecia and aging facial skin. Genital rejuvenation involves the management of extrinsic (traumatic) and intrinsic (aging) changes of the vagina and scrotum. Lipofilling-with the additional injection of PRP (with or without hyaluronic acid)-has been used to successfully treat vaginal atrophy and vaginal laxity; the unexpected resolution of lichen sclerosus in one of the women prompts the consideration to initially use PRP for the treatment of this condition not only in women but also men. Additional evaluation of the potential efficacy of PRP for vaginal rejuvenation and scrotal rejuvenation is warranted.
