The surrounding tissue can thin and change, leaving delicate skin that can easily get injured. Many physicians do not discuss sexual dysfunction or incontinence unless a patient asks about it. Even when the conversation is opened, there are very few treatments offered in conventional medicine.
The V-Shot, similar to the O-Shot®, is a natural, non-surgical treatment for vaginal rejuvenation utilizing platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Applying PRP’s healing properties can improve natural lubrication, heal thinned tissue, and increase sexual arousal and satisfaction.
As Naturopathic Doctors, we are interested in treatments that stimulate the body’s own healing systems. PRP has been dubbed “liquid gold” for just this reason. The V-Shot delivers a high concentration of your body’s own platelets, which release growth factors and upregulate the release of stem cells to help plump and regenerate vaginal tissue.
Even better, the procedure is simple. Using an FDA-approved process, PRP is isolated and injected into the numbed vaginal tissue, utilizing an expert technique. The V-Shot is a simple outpatient procedure and requires only a blood draw.
Conditions that may benefit from the V-Shot include:
- Stress urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine)
- Dyspareunia (pain with sex)
- Diminished sexual pleasure
- Vaginal dryness
- Lichen sclerosis (thinning of the external vaginal tissue)
What’s the process like?
The V-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. We use an FDA-approved process to obtain the PRP from your blood and inject this “liquid gold” into the vaginal tissue. The area is thoroughly numbed, and the procedure is performed by our expert physician injectors. The entire process, from start to finish, takes 1 hour.
How long does it take before I see results?
After the procedure, you may experience minimal swelling and redness for the first few days. Generally, most may begin to experience heightened sensations within the first week. Maximum results usually arise around 4-6 weeks. Results can vary, and our providers will address hormones and your overall health to ensure the best results.
