Sexual Rejuvenation Q & A

What is sexual rejuvenation?

Sexual rejuvenation is a way of improving your enjoyment of sexual intercourse. It involves revitalizing the tissues in your sexual organs to optimize your pleasure.

Dr. Stavrakos can help both men and women achieve sexual rejuvenation using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies known as the male shot and female shot

What is female sexual rejuvenation?

Female sexual rejuvenation involves injecting PRP into the side of your clitoris and the vaginal vault (female shots). The growth factors in PRP stimulate clitoral and vaginal revitalization, relieving the problems that often arise for women entering menopause.

One of the main issues with menopause is vaginal dryness, which causes uncomfortable or painful intercourse. Additionally, women may suffer from a loss of interest in sex, difficulties becoming aroused, and unsatisfying orgasms.

Women can also develop problems like stress urinary Incontinence in menopause, due to the decrease in circulating ‘sex’ hormones. Declining estrogen triggers menopause and causes many of the unpleasant symptoms women experience during this unavoidable time of their lives.

What is male sexual rejuvenation?

Male sexual rejuvenation restores optimal sexual function in men. The primary issue men face is erectile dysfunction (ED), where they struggle to achieve or sustain an erection to have sex. This can have devastating psychological consequences as well as affect your sexual health.

Problems with ED often arise when you have Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or other medical conditions that typically develop in middle age. Injections of PRP into the penis (male shots) help revitalize any damaged tissues and restore your ability to have erections that are hard and lasting.

How does sexual rejuvenation work?

The sexual rejuvenation treatments Dr. Stavrakos uses contain PRP, a type of regenerative or biologic medicine. PRP consists of plasma (the liquid part of the blood) and concentrated platelets. Platelets have growth factors and other cells that boost the body's power to heal its own tissues.

PRP injections help improve blood flow to the penis and clitoris, which is vital for sexual performance. Patients benefit from:

  • Enhanced sensitivity
  • Greater sexual stamina
  • Increased sexual arousal
  • Stronger orgasms
  • More frequent orgasms
  • Increased natural lubrication

Dr. Stavrakos also offers therapies and advice to help with other aspects of an unsatisfying love life. These include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to address hormone imbalances, and injections of biologics such as birth tissue products, Wharton's jelly, and exosomes.
