O-Shot Q & A

The O-Shot is an injectable treatment harnessing the rejuvenating potential of your own blood to enhance vaginal tissues. You may be acquainted with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used in joint health and hair restoration.PRP is a potent solution derived from a small blood sample, rich in growth factors promoting new cell development and exhibiting anti-inflammatory properties.

The O-Shot procedure commences with a blood draw, akin to routine lab testing, and considerably less involved than blood donation. This brief process allows you to listen to music or simply unwind.

In gynecological applications, the O-Shot fosters new tissue development and enhances circulation in the treated areas through the injection of PRP into vaginal and surrounding tissues.This treatment provides an opportunity to address various conditions that may impact a healthy sex life. Clinical applications of the O-Shot include:

  • Improving natural vaginal lubrication
  • Enhancing sensitivity in the clitoris, labia, or G-spot
  • Facilitating orgasm achievement
  • Amplifying overall sexual pleasure

Evidence also suggests the efficacy of the O-Shot in addressing urinary incontinence, as well as in treating lichen planus and lichen sclerosus

Very few individuals relish the thought of injections, especially in such a sensitive area. However, there is absolutely nothing to fear when trying the O-Shot. Your practitioner applies a topical numbing medication to the treatment area to temporarily reduce sensation.It takes just a few moments to administer the injections while you recline on the treatment table or chair. The entire process usually takes less than half an hour, and you can return to normal activities immediately after your visit.

You might notice some sensitivity in the treated area for a couple of days, but there is no significant discomfort. Expect to begin seeing improvements in around three weeks, with full results becoming apparent after approximately three months.

If you have questions or concerns about the O-Shot, schedule a consultation online or over the phone today to learn more.
