Over the course of a lifetime, the female body goes through a lot of stress. From childbirth to the normal wear and tear of age, life throws a lot at a woman, and sometimes this manifests in unpleasant ways, like incontinence. What is often just considered a normal problem of life for many women, however, may soon be reduced or eliminated by exciting new treatments that promise hope for treatment. Both the O-Shot and ThermiVa can not only treat issues like incontinence, but can also potentially improve a woman’s sexual experience and treat female sexual dysfunction.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is a non-surgical procedure utilizing Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy. By taking some of the patient’s own plasma from elsewhere in the body and injecting it into the areas of the vagina that are involved in arousal and sexual activity, it shows promising effects. Among the benefits demonstrated in trials are an increased or improved sexual experience and an improvement in the symptoms of urinary incontinence. The latter occurs due primarily to the strengthening of the muscles in the region which are responsible for maintaining urinary control.

What is ThermiVa?

While the O-Shot utilizes the body’s blood plasma to rejuvenate the body, ThermiVa instead uses the power of applied heat and radio frequency energy in a new and exciting non-invasive treatment method. By aiming this temperature-controlled treatment towards the vaginal area, the tissues are tightened and strengthened, which can increase local blood flow and power in the muscles. Similarly to the O-Shot, this increase in blood flow and muscle strength is key to fighting back against urinary incontinence.

Who can Benefit?

Any woman who suffers from urinary incontinence or sexual dysfunction as a result of normal aging, childbirth, or weight fluctuations can be a candidate for these two non-invasive procedures. Dr. Marcia V. Byrd, MD and Byrd Aesthetic are happy to provide more information in a one-on-one consultation about the specific effects and benefits of these treatments, as it is important for those undergoing any treatment to fully understand how it works and what to expect. With both ThermiVa and the O-Shot you can regain your sense of both security and confidence.
