Vaginal laxity is an anatomical deformation that can cause orgasmic dysfunction, decrease in self-esteem, worsen sexual life and quality of life in women. Although vaginal tightening has often been tried to be achieved by surgical methods, nowadays there is an increasing tendency to use non-surgical methods and to combine surgeries with non-surgical methods. These methods are non-invasive, safe, easy to apply and can be performed in private clinics as a daily outpatient procedure. A Their place in regenerative medicine is increasing day by day. Autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has received more attention in cosmetic surgery, functional cosmetic genital surgery. PRP treatment stimulates neovascularization and collegen formation with the help of the growth factors that are secreted from the alfa granules of the platelets. It can be used in lichen sclerosis, vaginal atrophy, stress urinary incontinence, episiotomy scars, cervical ectopy and vaginal rejuvenation. We aimed to review the literature for PRP application in gynecology.
