Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves and we can now harness this ability through advanced medical treatments. These techniques were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns, sexual wellness/dysfunction, overactive bladder and urinary incontinence. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair AND rejuvenation throughout the body.
Many women have issues with sexual wellness and dysfunction but are still reluctant to bring up these issues with their doctors. Decreased sexual health for a woman can stem from poor lubrication, pain with intercourse, the vaginal canal being too loose (less sensation) or too tight (discomfort), and difficulty or inability achieving an orgasm. Certainly, a low sex drive, or libido, can also occur, or even develop, alongside the other physical issues. These issues can greatly affect a woman’s self-esteem and thus result in significant stress between partners.
Q & A
What Is Female Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Female Erectile Dysfunction includes vaginal engorgement syndrome and clitoral erectile insufficiency syndrome. These syndromes are caused by decreased arterial circulation in the vagina or clitoris which interferes with normal vascular physiologic processes during sexual activity. (In other words, there is a lack of blood flow to the clitoris or vagina that impairs a woman’s normal or natural sexual response.)
Clinical symptoms may include:
What is the O-shot?
The O-shot is a simple procedure performed right in your doctor’s office to help improve female sexual health and wellness. PRP is used to improve blood flow to the clitoral and vaginal tissue in order to revitalize or enhance a woman’s sexual response.
What is PRP?
PRP is a solution of concentrated platelets made from your own blood. PRP is rich in bio active proteins which can enhance blood flow, stimulate cellular regeneration, and accelerate tissue repair. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells.
What benefits can I have from the O-Shot?
How is the O-shot Performed?
The procedure starts with the application of a numbing cream to the treatment areas. A routine blood draw procedure is performed. Your blood is then processed to produce PRP. Once your skin is numb, a simple block is performed to the treatment areas to further numb the tissue. The PRP is activated and then injected into the treatment areas while they are numb. Because of the numbing process, the procedure is virtually painless.
Does It Hurt?
Surprisingly NO! Because of the use of numbing techniques described above, the procedure can be done in a relatively painless fashion. There may be some minor discomfort, but overall the procedure is tolerated very well. Here’s what one patient had to say (” Ashley quote”)
How Does It Work?
Typically you will get two O-shots about 2-3 months apart. You may start to notice some effect within 3 weeks of the procedure but full results could take up to 3 months to completion. Results can last a year or more, and maintenance treatments can be performed on a yearly basis.
