PRP V-Shot for Vaginal Rejuvenation
You laugh or cough or jump, and a little urine leaks out, forcing you to rush to the bathroom to clean up. Sex has become painful and you’ve started avoiding it. You keep getting vaginal infections and can’t figure out why. Or you just feel like you’re losing touch with your sensuality.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, you could benefit from a treatment called the PRP V-Shot. It is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive office treatment that harnesses the healing powers of your own body to revitalize and rejuvenate the vaginal walls, vulva, and labia.
Please continue reading to learn more about how the V-Shot can make you feel more like your younger self, during intimate moments and otherwise.
Why is vaginal rejuvenation needed?
Studies show that approximately 40% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction and up to 50% of women have some degree of urinary incontinence. These problems are more common in pre- and post-menopausal women. They occur due to physical changes in the vulva and vagina, such as inflammation, thinning, and drying of the vaginal walls. Together, the changes are called vaginal atrophy. They develop due to lower levels of estrogen hormone in the body after menopause. Vaginal atrophy can make sexual intercourse painful and cause lifestyle-limiting urinary symptoms, thus affecting your overall quality of life.
Vaginal rejuvenation treatments can reverse some of these changes and provide relief from distressing symptoms.
What is the PRP V-Shot?
The V-Shot procedure is a natural way to enhance sexual health and treat some of the common symptoms experienced by women after menopause. It is a safe, 20-minute, non-surgical, office treatment that uses ground-breaking PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy.
PRP is obtained from your own blood by separating out a portion of the plasma that is rich in platelets. This is a component of your blood that contains a high concentration of growth factors and proteins.
When PRP is injected into the vaginal area, it promotes healing of the vaginal tissues. PRP treatment of the vagina with a V-Shot can help treat symptoms such as dyspareunia (painful sex), vaginal dryness, frequent vaginal infections, and urinary incontinence. Women who have had the V-Shot report a dramatic improvement in sex drive, arousal, sensitivity, and the ability to have orgasms.
Does the V-Shot tighten the vagina? Does the V-Shot work for incontinence?
PRP contains a high concentration of proteins and growth factors that repair damaged cells and increase blood flow to the vaginal area. The result is healthier, smoother, and more sensitive skin with a tighter vaginal opening. The V-Shot also improves libido, increases natural lubrication, makes the clitoris more sensitive, thus allowing a woman to have more intense and frequent orgasms. In other words, it can make sex an enjoyable experience again for post-menopausal women.
Besides sexual health, the V-Shot can help women regain urinary control. It can treat stress urinary incontinence or incontinence due to an overactive bladder, both of which occur due to falling estrogen levels in menopausal women.
Vaginal rejuvenation can also benefit women who are experiencing reduced sexual enjoyment due to changes caused by childbirth.
Where is the V-Shot injected?
The platelet-rich plasma is injected into the labia, clitoris, and G-spot. There is very little risk of allergic reaction or contracting a contagious disease, because the PRP is extracted from your own blood.
What does the V-Shot feel like? Is the V-Shot painful?
Before the PRP injections, the area is numbed with a topical anesthetic (numbing cream). This helps to reduce discomfort so that the V-Shot treatment is tolerable for our patients. Most patients report only minor discomfort and report the injections feel like a warm sensation with a slight pinching or stinging.
How long does take for the V-Shot to work?
Each person responds differently to the V-Shot procedure. Some women report an almost immediate improvement in their symptoms. In most women, however, it takes around 2 weeks for the healing growth factors in PRP to work. Maximum benefits from the V-Shot are typically seen in 3-4 months, once the PRP has had time to heal the vaginal tissues.
Is the V-Shot permanent? How often should you get the V-Shot?
The O-Shot is long-lasting but not permanent. In some women, the benefits of the treatment can last for up to 3 years. On average, women need to return for a repeat O-Shot after about 18 months.
What are the side effects of the V-Shot?
No severe side effects or complications of V-Shot have been reported. You might have some temporary mild swelling, discomfort, or spotting after your vaginal rejuvenation. These symptoms usually disappear in 1-3 days. Note that the V-Shot will not be administered if you have an active infection or inflammation.
What is the recovery like? Can I exercise after V-Shot?
The V-Shot is a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime. You can resume all your normal activities right away. We do advise that you refrain from sex for 24 hours.
V-Shot vs Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation: Which is right for me?
Besides the PRP V-Shot, other common methods of vaginal rejuvenation include FemTouch, MonaLisa Touch, and ThermiVA. These treatments involve the use of a gentle laser or radiofrequency energy on the vaginal tissues. They are energy-based procedures that cause microscopic damage to the vaginal walls, which prompts the body to regenerate and heal the area.
