Female Sexual Rejuvenation
As women age, they can begin to develop both sexual and bladder function problems. Regarding sex, statistically from ages 50-60 fully 28% of women are no longer sexually active. After age 60 that number increases to 43%. Obviously if a women does not want physical intimacy, that affects her partner as well and could affect the longevity of the relationship. Or she may feel obligated to please her partner but suffer irritation or pain from vaginal dryness.
Regarding loss of bladder control, in women aged 42-64 fully 68% suffer from some degree of urine leakage at least once per month. This can occur with cough, sneeze, or the simple urgency of getting to the bathroom on time. One or more difficult childbirths can also trigger this. Whatever the reason, losing urine affects self-esteem not to mention the annoyance and inconvenience of feeling unwanted moisture.
The surgical method for correcting bladder incontinence is called the sling method. It incorporates either donor human tissue or a synthetic mesh and props up and supports the urethra and neck of the bladder just like a hammock to prevent leaks.
The downside to this surgery is expense, post-operative pain, the down time from surgery, but worst of all scarring which can cause intense pain during intercourse. Not exactly a desired outcome! Also, if synthetic mesh is used, this can trigger an allergic response to a foreign body and lawsuit settlements have been in the millions for that.
The First Step
So, our very first step when evaluating women with impaired sexual function &/or bladder incontinence is to test for and replace any hormones that are insufficient. We only use Bio Identical hormones delivered in a safe and effective manner. In many cases, especially with sexual function, restoring hormones is the answer and nothing else needs to be done. With bladder incontinence, the other additional step is to practice Kegel exercises (tightening of all the sphincters in the rectal/urethral/vaginal area) several times per day. This exercise can also increase sexual satisfaction.
However, despite hormonal support and Kegel exercises some women still have difficulty in reaching orgasm and many women still leak urine.
The Vaginal Rejuvenation Shot
Fortunately, there are additional therapies.
We have taken the basic Orgasm Shot® (O-Shot®) pioneered by Dr. Charles Runels and improved it.
We have 2 variations on this shot. We can use just PRP or we can combine PRP with BA. What do these terms mean?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which is obtained from the patient by drawing blood, spinning down the tube and harvesting the platelet rich fraction and activating the platelets. We activate the platelets with ozone which is a distinct advantage to other methods of activation. It is more effective and far more comfortable for the patient.
These activated platelets contain growth factors that result in healing and repair and increased vascularity (blood flow). Using PRP alone can reasonably be expected to yield results for up to 18 months.
BA stands for Biologic Allograft, commonly known as stem cells. BA is harvested from umbilical cord of healthy newborn babies born via C section. BA is rich in stem cells, growth factors and exosomes that all combine to deliver greatly enhanced results. Because the BA is derived from immature umbilical cord cells, there is no possibility of an allergic or rejection reaction.
BA, when used, is always combined WITH the PRP. The advantage of using the BA in addition to the PRP is better and longer lasting results-up to 3-4 years instead of 12-18 months.
The procedure is as follows: we draw the patient’s blood and settle her in the treatment room where a numbing cream is applied to the clitoral area. Meanwhile our staff prepares the PRP. Once the patient is numb, the PRP (and BA if the patient has opted for that) is injected first into the clitoris, and second, into the anterior vaginal wall also known as the “G Spot.” Because of the numbing cream there is almost no discomfort.
The clitoris part of the injection is optional: it is designed for women who definitely want improvement in sexual function and response. If women ONLY want to improve bladder control but do NOT want any enhancement of sexual response, then we only do the G spot injection. That injection of PRP (and BA if desired) adds volume in the area that both enhances sexual response AND induces an increase in collagen and muscle that helps with bladder control.
After just 1 injection and 3 Pulse Wave Treatments women can expect almost instant results that are likely to last 12-18 months. There is no pain, no down time, no recovery from anesthesia, no mesh of foreign body reaction, no scarring. It’s truly a win/win---better sexual function and no bladder leaking.
In summary, our Vaginal Rejuvenation Therapy is for any woman who wants any of the following:
Increased sexual desire
Heightened orgasmic response
Improved bladder control
“After my blood was drawn, the procedure itself was very quick---maybe 10 minutes and NO PAIN! I was a little hesitant at first to do anything, but 2 days later my husband was thrilled about my response to his love making.”
– Laura W. Taylors SC
“I had leaked urine for 20 years after the birth of our 2nd child. It was annoying and embarrassing. Since the day after the Vaginal Rejuvenation shot with both PRP and BA, I have not leaked even one drop! I can’t believe I waited this long to do this! I am more than pleased.”
--Sallie M. Simpsonville, SC

Vaginal Rejuvenation Shot Frequently Asked Questions
What is in the Vaginal Rejuvenation Shot?
The key ingredient in the Vaginal Rejuvenation Shot is Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP concentrates the healing and growth factors in your blood into an injectable treatment. The PRP in the Vaginal Rejuvenation shot improves blood flow to both the clitoris and G spot resulting in a stronger orgasmic response as well as improvement in bladder sphincter control. An optional add-on for better longer results is the Biologic Allograft (stem cells.) PRP alone can last 12-18 months. The addition of BA can extend effectiveness up to 3-4 years.
How fast will I see results?
Most women feel results overnight.
Are there any side effects or down time?
It’s a simple in-office procedure. It takes about 20 minutes, and there is little or no downtime or side effects.
Where is the injection given?
The Vaginal Rejuvenation shot injection involves a very small amount of PRP to the clitoris and a slightly larger amount to the G Spot.
Is it painful?
Before giving the injection, we apply a local anesthetic. The anesthetic allows the shot to be painlessly given, and PRP to work its effects in the areas that are the most sensitive and most important in sexual arousal and function.
Will I need to see the doctor after the procedure?
Only if you are still having problems. At that point we may recommend either more Pulse Wave therapy or possibly another PRP shot.
How much does the Vaginal Rejuvenation Shot cost?
A lot of women are concerned about the cost of the P-shot. Unfortunately, most healthcare benefits will not pay for the procedure. However, you must understand that the cost is not that expensive relative to its results. Instead of looking at price, you need to look at the overall value of the Vaginal Rejuvenation shot. As mentioned, the side effects are almost non-existent, and there is no downtime, pain or possibility of scar tissue forming. The cost is considerably less than sling surgery. It is the only non-surgical method to correct bladder incontinence and increase sexual response and its effects last for 2-5 years or more, which makes the cost effective, when compared to surgery.
