Women may not talk about it as much as men, but sexual health is an important part of overall health. If you’re struggling with low libido or vaginal dryness because of hormonal changes related to menopause, you may want to consider the O-Shot®. At Ageless San Diego in Coronado, California, Patrick Yassini, MD, ABIHM, and the anti-aging team offer this an innovative injection that can revitalize vaginal tissue to improve or enhance sexual health. Call the office, or request an appointment online to learn more.
The O-Shot is a nonsurgical treatment option aimed at improving vaginal health and function. The O-Shot contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of platelets. The anti-aging team at Ageless San Diego underwent specialized training to be able to provide the O-Shot to you.
You may be familiar with the role platelets play in helping to stop the bleeding after a cut, but your platelets also contain specialized cells and growth factors that your body uses to help regenerate new cells and tissue to repair the damage.
When injected into your vaginal tissue, PRP in the O-Shot accelerates healing and the regeneration of new, healthier vaginal tissue. The healing properties also assist in improving blood circulation and increasing the production of collagen, which is the protein in your vaginal tissue that provides strength and elasticity.
The team at Ageless San Diego determines if you’re a good candidate for the O-Shot during a consultation. You may want to consider scheduling an appointment if you suffer from:
The O-Shot may also be used as a treatment for lichen sclerosis, which is a condition that causes the development of patchy, thin white skin around the genital area.
Although results vary from woman-to-woman, by improving vaginal health and function, the O-Shot offers many benefits. After receiving their injection, women report:
Women also find that the O-Shot decreases urinary and fecal incontinence.
The team at Ageless San Diego performs the O-Shot injection at the office. Before treatment begins, your physician applies a numbing cream to your vaginal tissue and arm to minimize discomfort. Then, your doctor will draw a sample of blood from your arm for the creation of the PRP.
Once your injection is ready, your anti-aging specialist injects the PRP into your clitoris and upper part of your vagina. There’s no downtime following your injection, and the team provides specific instructions on when you can resume sexual activity.
