O Shot® Introduction
The O Shot®, a new, noninvasive treatment that aims to alleviate female sexual dysfunction by extracting PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, from a woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vaginal area.
The O Shot® uses PRP to stimulate the growth of new cells in a woman’s vaginal walls and clitoris. The platelets, which the body utilizes to naturally generate tissue, increase not only the number of cells but also, sensitivity to stimulation.
How Does The O Shot® Work?
The procedure uses the patients’ drawn blood to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. Platelets extracted from the blood, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), are then placed in a syringe and injected into an area near the clitoris and an area just inside the vagina — the “o-spot.” Those platelets then stimulate the growth of new cells in the injected areas, making those areas more sensitive to the touch. The O Shot® improves orgasm, libido, and arousal.
