What is the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment to alleviate symptoms of female sexual dysfuntion such as:
- Skin laxity
- Painful sex
How is the O-Shot performed?
The O-Shot® uses PRP to stimulate the growth of new cells in the vaginal walls and clitoris. The platelets naturally generate tissue and increase sensitivity to stimulation.
A numbing cream is first applied to the vaginal area. Then, blood is drawn from the arm in the same ways as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet-rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. This initial process takes about 10 minutes. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain.
