You specialize in clinical solutions for decreased sexual response in women. What trends have you seen in your practice?
Due to their hectic and stressful lives, many women complain of decreased libido and unsatisfactory sexual responses. The causes may be multifactorial but ultimately result in atrophy, thinning of the vaginal wall and loss of clitoral tissue. The result may be the inability to achieve orgasm, vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness or painful intercourse.
What new options are available for woman that weren’t in the past?
I perform two simple in-office procedures that can improve these symptoms. The first is called the O-shot. Approximately 50 ml of the patient’s blood is placed in a special centrifuge to separate the blood components. A thin strip of cells, called platelets, are extracted and purified. The platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is then painlessly injected into the clitoris and anterior vaginal wall. The PRP contains growth factors that stimulate new tissue growth. The outcome is new clitoral tissue and growth of new mucosa in the stimulation part of the vagina known as the O-spot. The results, which can be noticed immediately or up to three months post-procedure, last up to three years.
The second procedure, which can be performed at the time of the O-shot or as a standalone procedure, is called the Femilift. This is an intravaginal probe that is inserted as deep as the cervix and delivers laser energy circumferentially around the entire lining of the vagina. The result is rejuvenated vaginal mucosa that restores the vagina to a more youthful state. Ultimately vaginal tightening, greater lubrication and greater sensitivity during intercourse ensue.
What type of results are you seeing?
I am seeing great success rates with both procedures in terms of better sexual response and improvements in intimate relationships. Both procedures can also strengthen the floor of the bladder, which will improve urinary incontinence.
