Female sexual dysfunction

Chances are, you or someone you know is struggling with sexual health complications. These challenges come in many forms, and people often go years prior to seeking treatment. Women’s risk of sexual health issues increase with age, childbirth, stress, and as a side effect of other health conditions.  

Common symptoms of sexual dysfunction include:

  • Decreased libido
  • Impaired ability to orgasm
  • Decreased sensation
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Dryness
  • Chronic pain related to childbirth
  • Postpartum fecal incontinence 

If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be one of approximately 41% of women throughout the world who struggle with sexual dysfunction. 

Aria's Treatment Protocol

Here at Aria, we take sexual health seriously. That’s why we offer multiple non-invasive treatment options to address the root cause of sexual dysfunction, and optimize your health and wellbeing. Our treatment options include: 

  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
  • O-Shot
  • V-Lase

These options have proven to be extremely successful both individually and when combined to resolve female sexual health complications. 

When we meet with patients who are experiencing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, one of the first steps we perform is a lab analysis to determine hormone levels. Low estrodiol and testosterone levels are highly correlated with sexual drive and function. In addition, hormonal imbalances are associated with an increased risk to a variety of chronic health conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Osteoporosis

In addition, BHRT is shown to help minimize menopausal symptoms, PMS, vaginal dryness/discomfort and low sex drive. 

What to expect

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the most reliable way to overcome hormone deficiencies and imbalances. Bioidentical hormones have many benefits over other forms of hormones, most notably the absence of unwanted side effects that come with the use of synthetic hormones.

BHRT hormones are delivered to women in pellet form, and within seven to 10 days, you will start gaining hormone therapy benefits. The pellets release slowly over time, preventing you won’t get experiencing peaks and valleys in your levels. In addition, one dose lasts approximately three months for w0men. Hormone therapy benefits have helped numerous women regain their hormone balance, and the benefits of hormone replacement can potentially do the same for you.

Like it’s name implies, the O-Shot and G-Shot improve female sexual health by decreasing pain during intercourse and improving the ability to orgasm. Furthermore, women are experiencing improved incontinence symptoms with just one treatment. 

How it works

The O-shot and G-shot procedure involves injecting an individual’s clitoris (O-Shot) and vagina (G-Shot) with their own plasma rich platelets (PRP). The process is painless, safe, and the treatment is completed in less than one hour. 

How PRP improves sexual function

The primary benefit of platelets is that they contain an abundance of growth factors. These growth factors decrease inflammation and improve blood vessel formation to enhance healing. PRP consists of anywhere between two to five times the concentration of platelets when extracted from whole blood.

In addition to its healing properties, PRP has been shown to activate stem cells when administered together. As a result, the O-Shot and G-Shot can be combined with stem cells to further improve treatment outcome.

How safe is this treatment? 

PRP injections have been shown to significantly improve sexual function, with no reports of any serious side effects (such as infection, and tumor formation) from treatments. Furthermore, since the PRP is obtained directly from the individual via blood draw prior to being extracted and injected back to the individual’s body, there are no contraindications associated with this treatment. 

V-Lase is a non-invasive, painless treatment that meets women’s needs, taking into consideration the body’s transformation as tissues age and undergo hormonal changes. V-Lase with Chopped CW laser technology is the safest treatment, based on a non-ablative photo-thermal effect that addresses numerous issues such as vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, recurring infections, and involuntary bladder leakage. Choosing V-Lase means taking care of your body by preventing these symptoms from negatively affecting the quality of life, allowing you to carry out a normal lifestyle.

How V-Lase Works

The V-Lase® treatment is based on laser-induced mild controlled heating of the vulvovaginal tissue which stimulates angiogenesis, increases fibroblast activity and new collagen formation, shrinks and tightens the vaginal canal and vulva tissue without ablation or excessive thermal damage.

Vaginal Rejuvenation helps women who suffer from:

  • Painful Intercourse
  • Stress Urinary Incontinence
  • Vaginal Atrophy
  • Vaginal Dryness (Causing Irritation, Burning, & Itchiness)
    Epithelial Integrity / Loss of Elasticity
