O-Shot San Diego
You may be embarrassed if you struggle with difficulties during sexual intercourse or with urinary incontinence. Although common, many women do not want to admit that they have problems with vaginal health. However, the professional staff at Laser Cliniqúe is here to help you improve both functionality and sensation in these sensitive areas.
The O-Shot is a relatively new development in treatments for sexual pleasure and vaginal health. It uses your body’s natural healing powers to revitalize your vaginal tissues and help you regain feelings of confidence and femininity.
What is the O-Shot?
Considered to be a non-surgical alternative to other common vaginal rejuvenation procedures, the O-Shot is a type of injection that uses PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, to encourage tissue generation and collagen production in the body to build up vaginal tissues.
After first gaining popularity in other procedures like facials and joint therapy, PRP was then developed for use during vaginal rejuvenation to enhance tissues responsible for sexual pleasure.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a concentrated serum of growth factors made from your own blood. First a sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge for about 15 minutes to remove red blood cells and isolate the plasma. After separation, the PRP is rich in healing compounds and growth factors that can be injected into areas of the body that require tissue regeneration.
PRP also initiates the development of collagen and new blood vessels, which promotes healing and can enhance sensation.
O-Shot Candidates – Who can benefit?
Many women can benefit from having the O-Shot. Over time you may experience decreased sexual pleasure as a result of childbirth, menopause, or other conditions. Before considering the O-Shot you should have a healthy relationship with your partner and be free of any other medical conditions that may be affecting your vaginal health.
Besides sexual pleasure, the O-Shot can also be used to alleviate urinary incontinence. As you age or have children, you may experience urinary incontinence during certain activities like laughing or sneezing. However, the O-Shot can also help you avoid future embarrassing problems with “leaks” during those activities.
Can the O-Shot be combined with other procedures?
Some women are interested in combining the O-Shot with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures like labiaplasty or laser treatments. It is sometimes recommended that any other vaginal rejuvenation procedures be performed during a separate treatment session after you have completely healed from your O-Shot, but this will depend on the type of procedure you are interested in and the extent of your treatment. At times women find that they do not need any other rejuvenation procedures because of the impressive results of the O-Shot.
Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ataii, will discuss all treatment options with you and develop a comprehensive plan to fit your needs.
What makes the O-Shot different?
There are other procedures out there that claim to increase sexual pleasure by thickening the vaginal walls using injectable fillers, thus increasing sensation by making the vagina tighter. However, the PRP used during the O-Shot procedure engages the collagen production and the creation of new blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the area and heightening sensation while also making it tighter.
The consistency and composition of the PRP also allows it to spread and affect a larger area, making it more effective than most other treatments. The O-Shot offers a natural way to enhance your genital area without the use of other formulas or fillers.
The treatment will begin by drawing a small amount of your blood to form the PRP used for your injections. Once the blood is separated using a centrifuge, the PRP is treated and prepared for injection. You will be given a topical numbing cream near the injection site for your comfort during the procedure.
The PRP will gently and precisely be injected into key areas of the vaginal tissue. The entire procedure is quick and minimally invasive, so you won’t have any incisions to care for. Most patients only experience mild discomfort that quickly dissipates and feel comfortable to resume their daily activities.
Recovery and Aftercare
You are welcome to resume all normal activities after your procedure, and aftercare requirements will be minimal. The recovery is very simple and you likely won’t experience any pain or discomfort. You are asked to refrain from using tampons or having sexual intercourse for a few days, but after that you will be ready to enjoy the results of the procedure.
Expected Results from the O-Shot
Many women are extremely happy with the results of their O-Shot procedure. Expected results can include:
- Increased sexual arousal
- Easier to reach orgasm during intercourse
- Increased natural lubrication
- A tighter vaginal opening
- Smoother skin on the vulva
- Decrease in pain or discomfort during intercourse
- Decreased urinary incontinence
The O-Shot is a simple way to treat common concerns regarding sexual and vaginal health. The results will be apparent as soon as you are able to resume sexual activity, and will get better with time as your body continues to generate new tissue and heighten your sensitivity.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results after the O-Shot will vary. Some women may experience heightened sexual pleasure for a couple years after the procedure. However, most patients will experience the benefits of the O-Shot for six months to a year.
