She is also an expert in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, certified in peptide therapy, and is board-certified in emergency medicine. Dr. Shawn Birchenough is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery and aesthetics. We are Greenville’s premier physician-run medical Wellness and Aesthetics center.

The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural activation of stem cells. PRP involves concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration, wake up stem cells, and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and other physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.

A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw, and from start to finish can be completed within 60 minutes. Blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in a syringe and injected back into the tissues where needed. Growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue, including areas in the face, scalp, sex organs, muscles and joints.

At OSMD, we don't settle for anything less than the best technology. That's why we use the EmCyte double-spin, non-gel containing system for our PRP. With this system we are able to concentrate your platelets to a clinically effective dose of 7-15 times the number of platelets in your blood.

Since PRP is extracted from your own blood, there’s no risk of side effects. Over 100,000 procedures have been performed to date with no complications reported.  PRP therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic issues.


For men, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections are used to enhance the function of the penis. For women, PRP injections are used to facilitate more intense orgasms of the G-spot, clitoris and/or other vaginal structures, as well as enhance libido and vaginal lubrication. PRP injections for penile enhancement and vaginal rejuvenation involve separating platelets from the patient’s own blood and injecting them directly into the genitals after numbing the area for comfort.


At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation for PRP injections as a first step. We charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your PRP injections, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.


Suitable candidates for PRP injections are men and women experiencing sexual function issues affecting their quality of life. For men, it may be issues with erectile dysfunction, and for women, it could be poor lubrication or other vaginal changes that have resulted in decreased sexual pleasure or urinary incontinence. PRP can also be used to enhance the results of microneedling, and to treat thinning hair.


If you're interested in PRP for aesthetic procedures like microneedling of the face, call for a consultation with one of our staff members.

If you're interested in PRP treatment of the scalp for balding or thinning hair, call for a Hair Restoration consult with Dr. Katherine.

The first step to using PRP injections to improve your sex life is to schedule either a Hormone Consultation or a Sexual Wellness consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Katherine will ask about your health history, current symptoms or complications, and your sex life so she can help you determine the best treatment for you. If she determines that PRP injections could be a good option for you, she will develop a treatment plan for you to consider. If you’re not ready to come into our health and wellness center for a consultation, you can also schedule a 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Katherine.


Today, there are still many studies being performed to determine if PRP is the best treatment for erectile dysfunction. However, most patients who receive PRP for sexual wellness achieve noticeable improvements in their ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Additionally, PRP can help men achieve stronger and firmer erections, making it a popular treatment for men struggling with ED.

PRP treatments do not require any downtime, so patients will be able to return to their usual activities immediately after treatment. PRP treatments for sexual wellness are no different. You can return to all activities, including sex, within hours of your treatment.

Prior to PRP injections for sexual wellness, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. This means that the treatment area will be numbed before the injection, which minimizes any pain or discomfort during the injection process. You may feel a brief pinching or stinging sensation upon injection, but most patients experience no pain whatsoever.
