Sexual Optimization Q & A

How does aging affect sexual function?

Growing older causes changes in your body that can affect your sexual function and desire. While many older adults enjoy healthy sex later in life, some may struggle with changes that occur due to impotence, vaginal dryness, and a decrease in hormones.

These issues may be the result of:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic pain
  • Incontinence

You may also find that depression from aging has a negative impact on your sex life.

What treatment options are available for sexual dysfunction?

Dr. Paziotopoulos offers several effective treatment options for both men and women with the goal to increase sexual function and satisfaction.

Treatments include:

  • GAINSwave® therapy
  • O-Shot® therapy
  • P-Shot® therapy

Depending on your needs, Dr. Paziotopoulos creates a custom treatment plan using one or more treatments to achieve your desired results.

What is GAINSWave therapy?

GAINSWave therapy uses shockwave therapy to address erectile dysfunction. Treatment is nonsurgical and non-invasive, relying only on high-frequency shockwaves of energy to break up plaque in the blood vessels of the penis that can cause dysfunction.

As a result of treatment, you can improve blood flow to the penis, enhancing your erections for sexual activity. Treatment also increases the sensations in the penis to ensure your satisfaction during sex.

You may need several sessions of shockwave therapy to achieve your goals. Each treatment lasts less than 20 minutes and Dr. Paziotopoulos performs the treatment in a comfortable office environment.

How does the O-Shot work?

The Orgasm Shot®, or O-Shot, uses growth factors from your blood that rejuvenate your vaginal health to improve sexual sensations. Treatment with the O-Shot can also improve urinary incontinence.

Dr. Paziotopoulos uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood that contains these growth factors. He injects the high concentration of plasma into your upper vaginal area to repair damaged tissue and replenish the area with healthy cells.

Over time, your vaginal health improves as new cells continue to grow, improving natural vaginal lubrication and ending painful sex. Treatment can also make you more sensitive to sexual sensations.

What is the P-Shot?

The Priapus Shot®, or P-Shot, is an effective treatment option for erectile dysfunction. Treatment involves the injection of PRP into the penis to trigger the growth of new, healthy tissue.

As the healthy cells continue to grow, you can enjoy longer-lasting, harder erections. Treatment requires no surgery or medication therapy. Because PRP injections use materials already found in your blood, treatment is safe and effective, causing no side effects.
