The Ultra Femme 360™ device was recently FDA approved, and is an external, and internal, vulvo-vaginal, radio frequency device, designed to address women’s health issues associated with child birth and aging.
The O-Shot ® delivers the patients own healing factors derived from a blood sample, to the feminine tissue to promote rejuvenation.
Women’s Health Issues addressed:
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
The Ultra Femme 360™ device delivers heat to the vaginal wall and external area through radio frequency energy, to increase circulation, and the production of collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in increased lubrication and tightening of the tissue, hence improving sexual satisfaction, aesthetic appearance externally, and improvement of stress urinary incontinence.
The O-Shot ® delivers the patient’s own growth factors and healing elements through 2 quick injections, with little or no pain, to promote tissue rejuvenation and sexual function.
Preliminary Trial Results:
Essence Laser & Wellness is the only practice in Colorado offering the combination treatment of the O-Shot ® with theUltra Femme 360™ Radiofrequency device, to give the best possible results in Feminine Rejuvenation!
SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN WOMEN:
"JUST THE FACTS, MAMM"
4 REASONS SEX MAY BE LESS THAN PLEASURABLE FOR WOMEN:
Up to 50 percent, or 75 million of American women report experiencing some level of physical sexual dysfunction. Many more who never report their sexual disorders may be affected. As a result, many learn to tolerate less than optimal sexual activity.
WHY SOLUTIONS ARE IMPORTANT FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH:
The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that sexual dyfunction, often considered worse in women than in men, can lead to a lowered sense of well-being that negatively affects the relationships with our sex partners and can contribute to the disintegration of the family. Sexual disorders not only take the fun out of sex, but better sex also leads to greater energy, more creativity, increased confidence, less depression and improved overall health.
WHY DO SO MANY WOMEN SUFFER IN SILENCE?
Research shows that only about 14 percent of women EVER talk to ANY of their physicians about sex. With up to half of women experiencing a sexual disorder, why do only about 1 in 10 ever talk to their physicians about sex?
According to Practice Bulletin in Obstetrics and Gynecology, one reason may be that research has led to few proven treatment options. Until recently, treatment generally is limited to hormone replacement therapy, and/or vaginal estrogen or topical testosterone. Even with hormone therapies, results are short term.
No wonder only 14 percent of doctors ever discuss sexual problems with women. If the woman fails conventional therapy, per the official recommendation of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the only other known solution, appears to be psycho-social therapies. Accordingly, both physician and patient may be discouraged from discussing a problem for which there is no proven solution, so in many cases, it just isn't discussed.
There's no doubt that sex education/counseling helps sexual performance and results, but if the woman's body does not respond as it should, even with proper knowledge, then the woman continues to suffer.
That explains why up to 75 million women in the US alone continue to suffer mentally and physically from sexual problems.
Isn't It About Time the Women Have Their Turn?
With Viagra, Cialis, Penis Implants, and hundreds of supplement to help men, it seems men have plenty of options for medical therapy, while women have had limited options. It's about time for that to change.
SO WHAT'S NEW?
