The Journal of the American Medical Association has reported that sexual dysfunction in women can lead to a lowered sense of well-‐being that negatively affects the relationship with your partner and can contribute to the disintegration of the family. Better sex can lead to deeper commitment, more energy, greater creativity and increased confidence, less depression and improved overall health and self-esteem.

There is no FDA approved medication for female sexual dysfunction in the United States!
Some common areas of sexual dysfunction:
Almost 50%, or 75 million American women report experiencing some level of physical sexual dysfunction. Of course, many more may be affected who never report their sexual disorders.
Sadly, many women have learned to tolerate less than optimal sexual activity.
Men have plenty of options for medical therapy such as Viagra, Cialis, penis implants, and dozens of supplements. What do women have? Counseling and maybe some hormones. It’s time for that to change.
Isn’t it time for orgasms again?
For several years, blood-derived growth factors have been used to regenerate tendons and ligaments in sports medicine, and to support recovery in dental surgery. In recent years, they have been used to regenerate the face in what is commonly called The Vampire Facelift®.
Relying on the same technology, we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to stimulate stem cells to grow healthier vaginal tissue. The whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes!
Questions and Answers
What is PRP and how does it work?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are a normal component of your blood’s plasma. They play an essential role in the way your body heals injuries. They function as a natural reservoir for growth factors that stimulate tissue recovery by increasing collagen production, blood flow, and enhancing stem cell growth. They repair the torn and aged tissue of the vagina. They also rehydrate the tissue and allow the aged tissue to be rejuvenated.
What is the process?
The procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, the growth factors in PRP are extracted from that blood sample and injected into the areas near the clitoris and the upper vagina that are most important for the sexual response, using a patent-pending procedure. Because these areas have been numbed with a local anesthetic cream, patients experience little or no discomfort during the treatment.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using PRP?
The advantages of PRP are the quick results, it is autologous blood (not a synthetic product) and it has no side effects. The disadvantage is the procedure may not work well in everyone.
Does it always work?
Like any treatment, it is possible that some women respond to treatment better than others. There is no single solution to any problem. For example, PRP may work better for women who don’t smoke or drink alcohol to excess.
What can I do to achieve the best result?
If you stop smoking, drink 2-3 liters of water per day, exercise regularly, and avoid soft drinks and caffeine, your PRP results will be better.
How much PRP is needed to have an effective result?
The average amount for the treatment is one tube of blood, or 10 mLs. In the scalp you can require 20 mLs or more.
How long will it last?
You will get almost immediate results and it can last for years. However, you will continue to age. If you find your symptoms returning at some point it is perfectly fine to retreat. The hair takes around 4 weeks for the cells to regenerate, and often a second scalp treatment is recommended at that time for optimal results.
How does my lifestyle effect the outcome of the PRP results?
The better your quality of life, the better your overall wel-lbeing, the better the outcome.
What changes can be seen in post-menopausal women?
Of course, your periods stop. Because of the lack of estrogen, you may also become depressed, you may have dry skin, insomnia, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and atrophy.
What is vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy means the thinning of the vaginal wall. The vaginal wall which is normally a thickness of 2-3 mm thins to 0.5 mm. This can contribute to pain during intercourse and increase the risk of urinary tract infection.
What is the usual treatment for vaginal atrophy?
We recommend avoiding soap in the vaginal area. Wash with a soap-free lotion. Wear cotton underwear and avoid thongs. Limit the years you take oral contraceptives and use an estrogen cream during menopause to relieve the symptoms.
Once the PRP is injected into key areas of the vagina and clitoris, the regenerative cells begin to rejuvenate the vaginal tissue. The results are:
