Maintaining optimal sexual health goes far beyond avoiding sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies — it also includes being able to experience sexual intimacy, pleasure, and satisfaction when the mood strikes you and your partner.
Unfortunately, everything doesn’t always go as well as it could between the sheets — men sometimes have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection, and women sometimes struggle with an unsatisfactory sexual response.
If you’re living with reduced sexual function, we have good news: Groundbreaking advances in regenerative medicine have made it possible to rejuvenate your sexual organs, restore your body’s response, and improve your sexual wellness, quickly, safely, and naturally. Here’s what you should know.
Did you know that your body contains one of the most powerful regenerative substances in existence? Platelets, the so-called liquid gold component of your blood, normally help facilitate the clotting process when you’re bleeding.
Platelets are such an effective catalyst for healing because they contain hundreds of growth factors that actively stimulate cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy was officially born when medical professionals realized they could inject a patient’s own concentrated platelets into damaged tissue to help accelerate the healing process.
Since its inception, PRP therapy has become something of a go-to solution for natural joint repair — it can be used to stimulate healing in an injured joint, or to encourage rapid tissue regeneration in worn, arthritic joints. The innovative therapy also has a variety of cosmetic applications, ranging from skin renewal to hair loss reversal.
PRP therapy now has an even more exciting application — it can be used to remedy sexual dysfunction in men and women alike.
Just as it promotes rapid cell proliferation, optimal tissue renewal, and improved vascularization in other areas of the body, PRP therapy helps rejuvenate the cells, tissues, and blood vessels that make up your genitals.
The overall objective of any PRP treatment for sexual wellness is to revitalize the sexual organs and optimize sexual response. This is achieved through the Men’s PRP Boost Shot® for men, and the Women’s PRP Boost Shot® for women:
Also known as the Priapus-Shot®, the Men’s PRP Boost Shot uses a patient’s own PRP serum to rejuvenate penile tissues and blood vessels for stronger, firmer erections that are easier to achieve and maintain.
Because the Men’s PRP Boost Shot helps improve blood flow to the penis, many men also experience increased penile length and girth as well as improved sensitivity. The P-Shot can also help improve or resolve penile curvature caused by Peyronie’s disease.
The Women’s PRP Boost Shot, or Orgasm-Shot® uses a patient’s own PRP serum to rejuvenate and revitalize vaginal tissues. The Women’s PRP Boost Shot can help improve or reverse chronic vaginal dryness, low libido, diminished arousal, or insufficient lubrication.
The Women’s PRP Boost Shot can also put an end to urinary incontinence, or the involuntary urine leakage that affects many women following childbirth or after menopause.
The Men’s PRP Boost Shot and the Women’s PRP Boost Shot are both quick, painless procedures that provide long-lasting results. Each treatment, which lasts about an hour from start to finish, begins with the application of a topical anesthetic lotion to ensure optimal comfort during the injection process.
As the anesthetic takes effect, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm and spin it in a special centrifuge machine to separate and concentrate the platelets. When the vial comes out of the machine, you’ll be able to see the red blood cells at the bottom, the clear plasma in the middle, and your gold-colored liquid platelets at the top.
Then, we simply draw the platelets into a fine syringe and inject them into the treatment area. For men, this means injecting them into the shaft of the penis; for women, it means injecting the platelets into the vaginal wall as well as the clitoral region.
There’s no downtime following the procedure — you can even have intercourse later that day, if you’re so inclined. While you may not notice any major changes right away, you can expect to experience improved sexual response in the days and weeks following your treatment as the cellular regeneration process continues to unfold.
