The Restorative Power of the O-Shot®
When women experience life events such as childbirth, menopause, and even the natural aging process, their hormone levels can fluctuate, oftentimes dropping significantly. As a result, many women can find themselves challenged with urinary incontinence, decreased sensitivity during intimacy, and a loss of sexual confidence.
The O-Shot (also known as the Orgasm shot), developed by Dr. Charles Runels, is a painless, non-surgical procedure that uses the power of your own blood platelets to rejuvenate and restore vaginal function and urinary control, giving you improved sensitivity and in many cases, immediate results! This 20-minute procedure is long lasting and women report significant improvements in stimulation, sensitivity, arousal, sex drive, and urge incontinence. The injection is done with platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood and contains several different growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing. Once PRP is injected, it repairs and regenerates the tissue.
How does the O-Shot work?
During the 20-minute in-office procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, usually the arm. The blood is then processed by a centrifuge which isolates platelet rich plasma (PRP). After local and topical anesthetic is applied, the PRP is injected into an area near the clitoris and just inside the vagina, beneath the urethra. The PRP stimulates growth of cells, vessels, collagen and fibroblasts in this area, making it more sensitive and healthy.
What are the benefits of the O-Shot?
The results will vary for each patient, and some may require additional treatments to reinforce effectiveness. Some noticeable benefits are:
- Decreased stress urinary incontinence
- Greater arousal
- Increased natural lubrication
- Increased ability to have vaginal orgasm
- Increased sensation
