So named because of its ability to rejuvenate the female orgasm system, the O-Shot delivers growth factors contained in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your clitoris and upper vaginal area via injections. The PRP stimulates vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation, which can relieve problems associated with aging vaginal tissue that’s often a concern for women entering the perimenopausal stage of life.
The O-Shot can provide:
The O-Shot is also effective for treating:
The platelets used in the injection are extracted from a blood sample you provide at the time of the procedure. After the blood is drawn, Dr. Grossman places it in a special machine (a centrifuge) that spins at a high enough rate to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components of your blood.
This highly concentrated dose of platelets is then injected into the area just above your clitoris. A second injection is delivered inside the upper vaginal area. The platelets deliver growth factors that stimulate your body’s natural cellular repair system, which effectively rejuvenates tissues affected by the aging process.
A local anesthetic is used to numb the targeted treatment areas so that you don’t feel any discomfort from the injections. As with most lab studies, you will notice a quick prick when the blood is withdrawn to prepare the PRP.
Most women report significant, even dramatic improvement within a few days, but full results typically occur after about three months.
Many women report improvement in their symptoms for three years and longer. Most women, however, return for a repeat procedure in about 18 months.
