The O-Shot

We rarely think about what needs to happen to take the body from interest, to arousal to orgasm. For everyone, but for women in particular, sexual enjoyment isn’t just about the physical – there are also mental and emotional aspects that are essential components in a satisfying sex life. Your body needs to be sensitive and relaxed. Your mind needs to be calm and focused. You need to feel safe, confident and comfortable with your partner. A variety of problems can interfere, and on top of those concerns, changes associated with childbearing, hormonal fluctuations and aging can further impact a woman’s sexual health.

If you’re struggling to orgasm, lack the desire to act on your passions or experience pain during intercourse, the experienced staff at The Finishing Touch Medspa in Folsom, California can help you rediscover your best sexual self with the O-Shot.

With many options out there you’re unsure which one’s best for you. It should be simple.

What Is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is one of the only research-backed treatments available for female sexual dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence. Utilizing natural materials taken from your own body, the O-Shot generates healthier and more functional tissue in areas of the vagina associated with sexual response and bladder control. Injections placed in the anterior vaginal wall and the clitoris rejuvenate the tissues, nerves and vascular structures to enhance sensation, strengthen orgasmic response and improve painful intercourse. Additional reported benefits include improvement in the unintentional loss of urine that occurs with physical movement or activity, such as laughing, coughing, sneezing and exercise.

What Is PRP?

The key ingredient behind this cutting-edge treatment is platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is extracted from your own blood and processed to create a high concentration of platelets. When injected back into your body, PRP releases growth factors that stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP has been applied for years to the treatment of sports injuries and, more recently, in facial rejuvenation and hair restoration. It is one of the most advanced, natural and effective treatments for cellular repair and rejuvenation throughout the body.

Benefits of the O-Shot

By harnessing the body’s capacity to heal itself, the O-Shot can lead to:

  • Increased sexual desire
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • A tighter vaginal opening
  • A more elastic vaginal canal
  • Heightened arousal from clitoral stimulation
  • Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
  • Stronger orgasms
  • More frequent orgasms
  • Decreased pain during intercourse
  • Decreased or cured stress urinary incontinence

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Before your treatment, you will meet with one of our knowledgeable specialists for a complimentary consultation. During this appointment, we’ll discuss your concerns, answer any questions you have and review your medical history to ensure the O-Shot is an appropriate treatment option for you. Your specialist will make sure you have a thorough understanding of the O-Shot procedure before proceeding.

Treatment with the O-Shot takes an hour or less to perform. A small blood sample is taken and placed in a specially-designed centrifuge, where it is processed to prepare the PRP. The PRP is then delivered into the vaginal wall and the clitoris using a very thin needle. While most patients report no discomfort while receiving the O-Shot, pain tolerance varies among patients. Some women feel a slight pinching sensation. The areas will be numbed with local anesthesia before the injections are administered to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

No downtime is required after receiving the O-Shot. You can drive yourself home from the procedure and normal sensation will return once the anesthetic has worn off. You may experience swelling and increased sensitivity in the injection area initially. These effects typically subside within a few days. You can resume your regular daily activities, including exercise and sexual intercourse, soon after the treatment. Your provider at The Finishing Touch Medspa will be available to address any questions or concerns you may have after your appointment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

The O-Shot is a safe procedure with no serious side effects reported. There is virtually no risk of rejection or allergic reaction from the treatment because PRP is obtained from your own blood. No synthetic or animal-derived products are used. While the O-Shot itself is not yet approved by the FDA, the FDA has approved the PRP harvesting machines that are used in the procedure, and PRP injection is a highly-documented technique used widely throughout different medical fields. The O-Shot is not recommended for women who are pregnant, nursing or trying to get pregnant, or for women who have current infections, sexual health issues or severe allergies.

What Results Can I Expect?

Many women enjoy initial benefits of the O-Shot shortly after treatment. Full results of the procedure develop gradually within three months, as the growth factors rejuvenate the treated tissues. Almost all women who receive the O-Shot experience improvements in their sexual life. You may notice an increase in your sexual responsiveness, increased vaginal lubrication, increased libido, reduced pain during intercourse and improved ability to orgasm. Patients also report improvements to their relationship quality and their overall well-being. Results from an O-Shot treatment last one to two years. On average, patients repeat the O-Shot procedure every 18 months to enjoy optimal results.

Does Insurance Cover the O-Shot?

No, the O-Shot is considered elective and is not covered by insurance.

Can the O-Shot Be Combined With Other Treatments?

We highly recommend pairing the O-Shot with diVa laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation. This powerful pairing uses multiple modalities for maximum renewal of orgasmic, vaginal and urinary function. If urinary incontinence is a concern, many patients notice additional improvement when the O-Shot is combined with pelvic floor exercises.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment With the O-Shot?

Many women looking to improve their sexual experience or urinary function can benefit from the O-Shot. Ideal candidates for the O-Shot are those who:

  • Do not want a more invasive procedure
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Are in good overall health

If you’re interested in finding out whether the O-Shot is right for you and your goals, we encourage you to schedule a consultation.
