One in twenty women suffer from some kind of sexual dysfunction.
The O-Shot is a non invasive treatment that aims to improve female sexual dysfunction. This procedure is used for sexual enhancement and rejuvenation by extracting PRP (platelet rich plasma) from the woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vaginal area. This PRP shot is used to stimulate the growth of new cells in a woman’s vaginal walls as well as the clitoris. These platelets are what the body uses to naturally regenerate tissue. It not only increases the number of cells but also sensitivity and stimulation.
With the array of treatments for men dealing with sexual problems, the O-Shot gives women a way to take control of their sexual problems with a non invasive procedure. Many women choose this option because it is a more natural way to address sexual dysfunction with little to no down time following the procedure. Women also say the results become obvious within one to four weeks with the full benefits being after three months.
The O-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the patient. This blood is then placed into a special centrifuge to spin for ten minutes. In that time the PRP (platelet rich plasma) is separated from the other blood elements. This PRP is them drawn into syringes ready for use. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area as to make the procedure more comfortable. If the patient desires, a local anesthetic can also be used to numb the area further. Then, the syringes are used for the injection. This takes only a few minutes.
