For decades, the spotlight has shone on problems with men’s sexual health, namely erectile dysfunction. All the while, women experienced their own issues, and in far greater numbers. Around 43% of women in the United States have some experience with sexual dysfunction, compared to 31% of men.
The team here at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, with Dr. Manuel Lopez at the helm, recognizes this disparity. To address this gap, we offer several effective sexual health treatment options uniquely designed for women, including the PRP-based L-Shot.
Here’s a look at how the L-Shot works, and also how, when combined with our other treatments, you can take charge of your sex life again.
What the L-Shot can address
The goal of our L-Shot is to provide your vaginal tissues with the resources they need for optimal health. Some of the primary complaints when it comes to sexual dysfunction in women are:
- Vaginal dryness
- Thinning vaginal tissue
- Lack of sensitivity
With our L-Shot, we improve vascularization, lubrication, and nerve growth, both inside and outside your vagina.
How the L-Shot works
One of the biggest benefits of our L-Shot is that we’re using your own natural resources to boost your sexual health, namely your platelets.
The primary responsibility of your platelets is to clot your blood when there’s a breach. Once this is accomplished, however, your platelets are far from finished. To help heal the area, your platelets release growth factors, which form the ultimate healing environment.
To create your L-Shot, we draw a sample of your blood and separate out the platelet rich plasma to inject into area where your body can use a boost in regenerative resources.
More specifically, we administer the L-Shot in two areas: Your G spot (the space between your urethra and the anterior wall of your vagina) and your clitoris.
Once we inject the platelets, they release growth factors that call upon, among other resources, your stem cells. When the stem cells arrive, they create healthier tissue, improved blood supply, and a stronger network of nerves. In other words, we’re able to improve lubrication, tone, and sensitivity in your vaginal tissues.
The L-Shot timeline
Depending upon your goals, we usually recommend an initial series of 3 injections, spaced eight weeks apart and then annually injections for maintenance. Most women see the cumulative effect about 8 weeks after their last L-shot treatment.
Further improving your sexual health
While our L-Shot does a fantastic job in improving the health of your vaginal tissues, these great results can become even better if you combine your L-Shot with our CO2RE Intima vaginal rejuvenation and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
