Yes, the O-Shot is a safe procedure free from side effects. Utilizing a patient’s own Platelet-Rich Plasma eliminates the risk of adverse reactions to occur.
Each patient’s reaction to the O-Shot will vary slightly, however, the majority of women report a painless procedure. In order to minimize discomfort, a local anesthetic is applied topically to the injection site before the shot is given.
The procedure begins with a standard blood draw. Using a special separation technique and specialized equipment, the platelet-rich plasma portion of your blood sample will be separated from the rest of your blood. This substance will then be collected and prepared for injection into the areas of your clitoral and vaginal tissue that are responsible for sexual function and urinary continence. In order to minimize discomfort felt during the injection process, a topical anesthetic will be applied. As soon as the patient has been prepped, the injection of the PRP will take place in a matter of minutes. After the procedure, you’ll be free to resume your normal daily activities, experiencing nothing more than a slight increase in tenderness or sensitivity at the injection site.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a procedure that involves drawing and utilizing the powerful, naturally-occurring growth factors from a patient’s own blood. All PRP procedures start with a simple blood draw. With a special technique and tool, the platelet-rich portion of the blood is separated and prepared for injection into the area needing rejuvenation. The ability of platelet-rich plasma to generate new, healthy cells and encourage repair and growth makes it a powerful solution for a number of health concerns.
You may be a good candidate for the O-Shot if you suffer from urinary incontinence, vaginal looseness, decreased sensation, painful intercourse, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, or other symptoms related to the loss of sexual function. A thorough consultation and evaluation of your medical history will help us determine if the O-Shot is right for you.
In many cases, the benefits of the O-Shot are recognizable almost immediately following the procedure. In the days and weeks after the procedure, you’ll notice an increase in sensation and improvement of sexual response.
There are no known side effects associated with the O-Shot. Because the procedure utilizes the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, there is little risk for adverse reactions to occur.
The benefits of the O-Shot can last for one to two years. Women may opt to receive the O-Shot once a year or once every two years in order to continue to enjoy the benefits over a longer period.
