The aging process can be cruel as your body becomes less resilient, often lacking the resources it needs for optimal function. And this process can be especially pronounced when it comes to a woman’s sexual health, leading to problems with low libido.

Here at Star Laser, under the guidance of Lakshmi Palakurthi, MD, we want to help our patients in the Troy, Michigan, area fight back against aging by restoring health in all areas, both inside and out. If you’re in the twilight of your reproductive years, it doesn’t have to spell the end of your sex life. Thanks to the O-Shot®, we can breathe new life into your sexual health.

If you’re suffering from a low libido due to poor sexual health, here’s how the O-Shot can help.

The shutdown

A woman’s body is governed by her reproductive health in many obvious, and not-so-obvious, ways. When you enter perimenopause and menopause, it means that your ovaries are beginning to wind down production of your eggs. While this process seems simple enough, it’s caused by a decline in your sexual hormones, namely estrogen and progesterone, which not only control egg production and release, but your vaginal health as well.

Since a woman’s body is designed to reproduce, your hormones oversee several areas in your reproductive system in order to facilitate conception and childbirth. To that end, estrogen ensures that your vaginal tissue is healthy and lubricated. When your estrogen levels fall, it means that this tissue lacks the resources it needs, leaving it to thin, dry out, and become less sensitive.

What this all means is that your body is biologically driven to reproduce and when that stage comes to an end, it believes you no longer have a need for an active sex life. While this change affects women in different ways, many are left with vaginal dryness, poor tissue health, and less circulation. Taken together, this not only reduces sensitivity in the area, it can lead to painful sex, which can have a powerful effect on your sexual desire and pleasure.

Redirecting resources

The lack of libido that often accompanies perimenopause and menopause is one of life’s little ironies — when you reach the point where you can enjoy sex without getting pregnant, your body isn’t up for this new, carefree stage.

And that’s where the O-Shot can help. The O-Shot relies on a form of regenerative medicine called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which redirects your body’s own resources to areas that can use a little boost.

Your blood is made up of four ingredients: white and red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Your platelets are best known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that help your tissue rebuild and repair itself.

Using the RegenKit®, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm and separate out your platelets using a special centrifuge. We then take this concentrate and inject the platelets directly into your clitoris and vagina in order to restore vaginal health.

The growth factors in the O-Shot set to work to rebuild your tissue and increase circulation, which means you benefit from increased sensitivity and responsiveness. With renewed vaginal health, your libido typically follows suit.
