By utilizing the regenerative powers of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), stem cells, and pressure wave technology, Dr. Ripoll’s Organ Health element of the HOPE Protocol utilizes the body’s innate ability to heal itself to strengthen the vaginal tissue and clitoris. This results in more intense orgasms, deeper intimacy, and better sex for you and you partner.
In 2011, Dr. Charles Runels, M.D. pioneered an ingenious application of PRP therapy called the O-Shot. Today, the O-Shot is poised to do for women what Viagra has done for men since 1994. There are no pills to take, very minimal side effects, and the results lasts up to a year. It also eliminates female stress urinary incontinence in more than 90 percent of cases.
As with all PRP procedures, the O-Shot begins with a couple of vials of blood being drawn. The plasma that contains the PRP is then separated from the red and white blood cells by a centrifuge. The platelets, which contain highly active glycoproteins known as growth factors (also called “chemokines” and “cytokines”), are then injected with an extremely thin needle (27 gauge) into the anesthetized areas mentioned above.
The chemokines and cytokines within the PRP stimulate the local “uni-potent” stem cells (stem cells that only produce new cells in the adjacent tissue), which in turn initiates the production of new tissue in and around the injection locations. The growth factors within PRP stimulate the productions of new cells, enhance the migration of these cells in and around the injection sites, repair damaged cells, and extend the life of existing cells — all of which contribute to tissue rejuvenation.
PRP injections also enhance the proliferation of fibroblast growth factors (FGF) that direct the formation of new blood vessels and capillaries (angiogenesis) and wound healing.
As with wound healing, the rejuvenation of the roof of the vagina and the clitoris involves numerous tissue types (blood vessels, nerves, smooth muscle fibers, lymph vessels, connective tissues, endothelium and so on). So when the vagina and the clitoris receive a concentrated wave of bioactive glycoproteins and FGF from a PRP injection, they immediately begin the process of generating new tissue.
