How Regenerative Health Can Boost Your Sexual Health

One of the most devastating effects of aging is the process of declining sexual health. The problems associated with sexual health as we age can be embarrassing, frustrating, and even painful. Fortunately, there are solutions. 

At S. Aesthetics.MD, Dr. Tuan Doan and our team understand the severity of these problems. That’s why we offer regenerative health options specifically focused on improving sexual health. 

Regenerative medicine for sexual health

Many people have heard of regenerative health  a blanket term for medical procedures and programs that help to improve tissue functions and biological responses as a result of damage, age, wear-and-tear, and other issues. 

In the case of our office, we focus on the PRP or platelet-rich plasma. PRP is obtained by drawing blood from your body, spinning it in a centrifuge, and separating out the platelet-rich layer that is then reinjected into the body. 

PRP can be used for many functions: it releases growth factors that can repair damaged tissue and help your body regrow cells, healthy tissue, and it can promote increased function in the areas where it is injected. PRP also can be used to restore hair growth and to rejuvenate skin, taking years off your face. Still, many people don’t realize that PRP can also be used to improve sexual health. 

Because PRP helps to revitalize the tissues in the body, many of the common side effects people experience with their sexual health as they grow older can be improved with this treatment. 

The injection is delivered into the penis, which helps to treat the effects of erectile dysfunction. The other injection for women is delivered into the vaginal tissues, and it helps to treat low sex drive, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, and problems obtaining orgasm. 

The procedure usually takes about half an hour. You will need to have a consultation with Dr. Doan before the procedure to ensure you are a good candidate for regenerative medicine and that you have realistic expectations for the procedure. A numbing agent is applied before the shot is given, and there is very little downtime necessary after receiving the injection and few side effects associated with the procedure. These may include infection, numbness, soreness, and scar tissue, but they are uncommon. 

Do these shots work? 

There are several studies on the efficacy of these two types of procedure. In a 2017 study, it states that regenerative medicine is likely to become a top treatment for erectile dysfunction in the coming years. 

Another study of erectile dysfunction published in 2019 mentioned a trial where four men with erectile dysfunction experienced beneficial results using PRP treatment with few side effects. There is slightly less research available at this time when it comes to the the womens injection, but this has also been found to be a helpful option for those struggling with female sexual dysfunction as they age. 

Like most medical procedures, some candidates are more suited for these treatments than others. Dr. Doan will discuss this with you at your appointment.
