Three Ways Men and Women Can Improve Their Sexual Health

By: Our Team


For many patients — both men and women alike — having a healthy, fulfilling sex life plays a major role in their overall health and well-being. Oftentimes, however, men and women experience declining sexual function, decreased sexual sensations, and other forms of sexual dysfunction over time, particularly with age. While oral medications and surgical interventions may help with some types of sexual dysfunction, many patients prefer a more convenient alternative without the risks, side effects, and other downsides of surgery or medication. For these patients, functional medicine practitioner Dr. Elliot Hirshorn, III and our team of wellness specialists at New Life Health in Greenville, SC are proud to provide a range of nonsurgical sexual wellness treatments to help men and women feel more confident, satisfied, and fulfilled. Take a closer look at three exciting sexual health treatments available at our practice below, and learn more about how you may benefit from nonsurgical sexual wellness therapy.

How can I improve my sexual function and experience?

Improving your sexual health and wellness starts with understanding what may be causing your symptoms. For both men and women, sexual dysfunction is often a multifactorial condition — meaning there are many variables contributing to their symptoms. These can include:

  • Age
  • Psychological stress
  • Andropause or menopause
  • Other hormone changes
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Certain medications

Generally speaking, men and women who have experienced normal and expected changes to their sexual function and sensation over time — like vaginal dryness for women or decreased firmness of erections in men — may be candidates for nonsurgical sexual dysfunction treatments offered at New Life Health. Three popular and exciting treatment options that may offer the boosted sexual satisfaction you desire include:

1. Shockwave treatment: Available for both men and women, shockwave treatment for sexual dysfunction is nonsurgical and virtually painless. The treatment involves delivering low-intensity acoustic sound waves to the intimate tissues, like the vaginal region or penile tissues, to stimulate increased blood flow for enhanced sexual sensitivity and pleasure. This can also help increase firmness or erections in men, making the treatment compelling for men who prefer a nonsurgical ED (erectile dysfunction) treatment option.

2. PRP injections: By harnessing the growth factors and nutrients found in the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) of a person’s own blood, the O-Max (female) and P-Max (male) injections can stimulate blood flow, tissue regeneration, and other processes to help improve unwanted sexual dysfunction symptoms like vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, poor erections, and loss of sexual sensations.

3. Laser vaginal rejuvenation: For women who have experienced unwanted changes associated with age, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause — including vaginal dryness and a loose vaginal cavity — laser vaginal rejuvenation with the Alma FemiLift CO2 laser can help to stimulate new tissue growth and remodeling for improved comfort during sex, increased vaginal elasticity/tightness, and more.
