This innovative treatment out on the market today is used to treat a series of different conditions in women such as sexual dysfunction, incontinence, and overall satisfaction with one’s feminine wellness. Taking the industry by storm, this non-invasive treatment is offered at WellMedica in order to help women feel more confident in the bedroom, and in life.
The O-Shot has left many asking, “I get a shot where?!?!” In order to receive this treatment you do receive a shot in your vagina tissue where your own blood platelets are injected to grow healthier vaginal tissue. Using your own blood platelets as treatment is nothing new. If you have heard of something called the “Vampire Facial", coined by Dr. Charles Runnels, this is relatively the same concept. For the vampire facial your blood platelets are just injected into your face. Platelet rich plasma stimulates collagen production and cell proliferation, increasing volume and improving the appearance and texture of the skin. Therefore, when injected in the vagina tissue it can have amazing results for women.
According to statistics 25% of women have an orgasmic dysfunction, which is defined as persistent or recurrent delay or absence of orgasm following a normal sexual excitement phase. There are many different reasons for this, however, now we have treatment that can help this. As stated before the O-Shot can help someone struggling with sexual dysfunction, unable to reach orgasm, and help make sex more comfortable. Many post-menopausal women are receiving the O-Shot in order to get their sex lives back, yet women can receive this treatment relatively any age. It can also treat incontinence for women who often struggle to make it the bathroom, or urinate when they laugh. For many women who deal with bladder control the O-Shot has helped them immensely.
Before treatment areas that will be injected are numbed with local anesthetic cream, and patients will then experience little to no discomfort during treatment. The PRP is extracted from a blood sample that is then injected into to the area of the upper vagina that has the most important sexual response, and the area near the clitoris. This treatment is extremely quick with injection taking no less than 10-20 minutes! Results from the O-Shot last for about a year.
Here at WellMedica we do offer an alternative treatment for the O-Shot that treats the same conditions. This is called ThermiVa, which uses radio frequency to gently heat tissue inside and outside of the vagina. Treatment helps treat sexual dysfunction in women, trouble orgasming, incontinence, outer appearance of the vagina, and more. To learn more about this alternative treatment go here.
