An Advanced Intimate Wellness Preceptorship course with Dr. Peter Castillo is an opportunity to learn how to incorporate the latest women’s sexual health therapies into your practice.
Intimate wellness and aesthetics are a growing concern for many patients. However, symptoms and conditions vary and may present differently from one person to the next. Now is the time to learn the skills to succeed and better care for your patients’ unique needs. With more resources to promote and maintain urogynecological health available than ever before, more women of all ages are choosing to address their concerns and seek treatment.
After all, nearly 50% of women report experiencing at least one vaginal symptom after menopause. And, almost 70% of sexually active postmenopausal women report a compromised ability to enjoy intimacy and sexual intercourse, which ultimately impacts their overall quality of life. (1) Make sure that you can offer your patients the services they desire and stay at the forefront of this burgeoning field of medicine.
Swan Medical is a leader in the field of intimate wellness, and Dr. Peter Castillo has dedicated his practice to providing his patients with compassionate care in a supportive environment, allowing women access to advanced technology for life-changing treatments. He routinely shares his expertise at comprehensive preceptorships so that his colleagues can help their patients enjoy everything that being a healthy, happy woman entails.

What You Will Learn In This Course:
Intimate wellness goes far beyond physiological sexual health. It impacts a woman’s sense of purpose, satisfaction in relationships, and emotional wellbeing. (2) Mastering the tools to understand and address patients’ concerns ensures that your practice is a trusted resource for dispensing unparalleled care.
Intimate Wellness 101
Women’s bodies go through dramatic changes over the course of their lifetimes. With these changes come a variety of concerning symptoms. In this course, you’ll receive a comprehensive overview of vaginal health, and the common conditions that arise as a woman goes through the many transitions that occur with aging. You’ll learn about how sexual health impacts overall quality of life so that you have the tools to ensure that patients remain healthy and happy.
Vaginal Laser Therapies
LASER technology has been used in gynecology and urology for over 40 years. (1) Learn about how this technology has evolved over time, and how advances in this field of research have led to a proliferation of effective and accessible therapy platforms. Treatments available today include ultrasonic and radiofrequency modalities such as ThermiVa, Mona Lisa Touch, and DiVa laser resurfacing. We’ll review how these devices can improve genital health, and how to develop successful individualized treatment plans to meet your patients’ needs.
The latest and fastest growing sub-specialty in gynecology, cosmetic gential surgery is in high demand.(3) This suite of routinely performed aesthetic procedures can improve a woman’s emotional and physical health, having a lasting impact on overall intimate wellness.
Offering Intimate Wellness Services
If you’re interested in expanding your practice’s offerings to include intimate wellness services, this preceptorship is the best place to start. You’ll learn how to start incorporating sexual health treatments into your care offerings. Whether Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, O-shots, or investing in vaginal rejuvenation laser platforms, Dr. Castillo will be able to advise a plan that positions you for success. But, treatment modalities are only the start.
Multiple recent surveys conducted in the US and internationally revealed that most women do not discuss their sexual health with their health care professionals. The reason? Discomfort and embarrassment leads them to avoid the conversation entirely. (3) You’ll learn from an expert how to develop talking points for a comfortable and effective discussion about sexual wellness. Once your patients understand that this aspect of their health is a normal and appreciated concern, they’ll be eager to pursue treatment. Sensitive marketing with strategic focus can encourage patients currently receiving other treatments to pursue sexual wellness therapies. Learn proven methods for building the trust necessary to establish lasting patient relationships.
