What is the O-shot and why is everyone talking about it?
The O-Shot is a procedure that uses Plasma Rich Protein or (PRP) as a vaginal rejuvenation technique.
What is PRP?
PRP is the concentrated platelets, growth factors, and cytokines which are harvested from the patient’s own blood. These substances are the body’s chemical messengers that instruct the cells how to heal and regenerate. When concentrated down and injected into specific areas in the body it signals the repair and regenerate response to occur. Historically they have been used to address soft tissue injuries, in hair restoration to stimulate new hair growth, as a valuable tool in pain management, in facial aesthetics for wrinkle reduction, and most recently as a powerful tool to address sexual dysfunction in both men and women as well as treat symptoms of stress incontinence.
The O-shot is a specific injection technique. The process requires a quick blood draw. The blood is then spun in a high powered centrifuge twice, isolating the precious growth factors, and then mixed with a calcium preparation to create platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM). The PRFM is then injected into the anterior wall of the vagina and the clitoral tract which increases circulation, restores lost volume, and encourages cellular regeneration . The procedure is not painful and takes about an hour from start to finish.
The results of the procedure are increased desire, sensation, and sexual satisfaction. If that wasn’t enough reason to schedule an appointment, what we have found is that for those women who suffered from stress incontinence prior to the procedure experienced immediate, yes immediate, relief of symptoms related to stress incontinence.
Imagine no more leaking or dripping. Sneezing without crossing your legs! You can laugh, jump, run, lift weights all without having to run to the bathroom before, during and/or immediately after.
“I have three words to describe the outcome of my treatment. Jumping without leakage! As if that isn’t enough to get many of us lining up at the doors of Illume Aesthetics, then the staff will. They are wicked smart and caring. They went out of their way to make me feel at ease by answering every question I threw at them, they kept me comfortable, and they had me in and out of the office in an hour. I’m looking forward to future visits to Illume Aesthetics!” Heather W.
