After working with numerous physicians and products, Dr. Beaver decided on VOTIVA for several reasons. We can offer numerous treatment modalities that are safe, effective, and affordable. These can be performed in a comfortable office setting without surgery and essentially no downtime.
The FormaV mode of VOTIVA offers a comfortable treatment that provides uniform Radiofrequency heating of the internal vaginal tissue and external vulva. Previously, women did not have many options to improve intimate issues that occur from childbirth or aging. FormaV delivers gentle thermal tissue remodeling of the genitals that is proven to improve vaginal atrophy and dryness, stress urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, and improve sexual health.
The Oh my! Shot was created to address sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence issues. Using your own blood we are able to inject platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the vagina and clitoris in a quick 60-minute office procedure. PRP releases growth factors that activate stem cell production in the area of injection to rejuvenate tissues and nerve cells. There are limited contraindications since the PRP comes from your body. Some women may experience benefits immediately, but generally women start to notice a difference in 2-3 months. Most benefits from the shot last 12-18 months. This shot can also be combined with our Forma procedure for more effective vaginal rejuvenation and a discount!
The benefits from the Oh my! Shot can include:
What’s the process like?
We start with a simple blood draw from the arm. The blood is then processed to obtain the PRP while the numbing cream is applied. Once you are fully numb, there are two quick injections into the vagina and clitoris.
Does the Oh my! Shot hurt?
Most women report the shots are painless. We use a gentle cream-based topical numbing agent before the procedure and can use injectable numbing agents as well. The injection may feel like a small pinch or a warming sensation.
What side effects can I expect?
You may experience some spotting from the injection sites after you leave the office. Some women report increased sexual response, minor discomfort, redness, swelling, or numbness for the first few days.
According to Dr. Neal Rouzier, who has been called the “expert on bio-identical hormone replacement therapy”, and who has trained thousands of physicians, replacing all of our deficient hormones….to levels we had in our youth is beneficial to both our health and quality of life. Hormones decline in all women as they age, resulting in symptoms that alter a woman’s quality of life and also increase her risk of chronic and age-related diseases. Conventional medicine has always held the belief that aging is inevitable and that the progressive deterioration that occurs in our adult years cannot be altered.
THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. We have also been led to believe that the diseases of aging such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and senility are all part of the “normal aging process”, and the only way to slow that process is through lifestyle interventions (nutrition, exercise, sleep, etc.). HOWEVER, “there is an exciting revolution in science and medicine today that identifies hormone replacement as preventive medicine…. over 50 years of research has shown that maintaining our hormone levels in a youthful state can prevent the debility and illness that accompany the aging process. By optimizing a woman’s sex hormones, she will not only feel better but she will also be protecting herself.” Dr. Beaver is committed to replacing and optimizing hormone levels to allow patients to be in the lowest risk categories for the development of chronic disease.
We firmly believe in the benefits of improving a woman’s quality of life using bioidentical hormones. Bio-identical hormones are the exact replica of the hormones produced naturally in the body and can result in relief of symptoms and provide women with protection from age-related chronic disease. Also, Bioidentical Hormone therapy is tailored to the individual based on her symptoms, her age, her past medical history, her family history, her current medications, and her hormone levels. Because there is no “one size fits all” when using Bioidentical Hormones, it can take time (anywhere from 3-6 months) to achieve maximal benefit and optimal hormone levels.
It is a common misconception that Bio-identical Hormone Therapy is reserved for post-menopausal women. A tremendous benefit of using Bioidentical Hormones is that types of medication, doses, and route of administration is highly customizable, thus making Bioidentical Hormone Therapy a wonderful option for symptom relief for women of all ages. At Trinity Ob/Gyn we can administer hormones in the form of pellets, as an in-office procedure. We also may prescribe hormones in the form of pills, creams or a combination of all of these. We work closely with multiple compounding pharmacies to ensure that each hormone regimen is specifically tailored to each patient.
