How the “O SHOT” Works
During your O Shot appointment in our Englewood, NJ Medical Spa, blood will be drawn from your arm, just as it would be for a routine blood test. Then we centrifuge (“spin”) the blood in a special machine. This separates the lighter weight platelets out from the heavier blood cells.
The platelets extracted from the blood contain a special protein that is a “growth factor” responsible for the body’s natural healing processes. By isolating the platelets from the blood, a serum containing up to 8 times more “growth factor” than regular blood is collected. This serum is called “Platelet Rich Plasma” or “PRP”.
Next a topical numbing cream is applied to the spot where the injection (O Shot) will be given. This makes the O Shot procedure more comfortable, and virtually pain free. Once the anesthetic takes effect, the concentrated PRP is injected using a very fine needle into the upper vagina and clitoris.
The natural healing factors in the O Shot stimulate the vaginal area to start healing itself naturally. The PRP stimulates new cell regeneration, resulting in increased blood flow which heightens sensitivity and improves the production of natural lubrication. Additionally, the O Shot stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, which tightens the tissues and muscles in the vaginal walls.
The result is improved sexual sensation, better orgasms, a tighter vagina, less painful sex, and decreased bladder leaks! All with just a single O Shot in our Englewood, NJ Med Spa.
