The O-SHOT® Begins With a Simple Blood Draw
Through a simple blood draw the healing and rejuvenating potential of PRP can be extracted and directed via skillful injection into the tissues of concern; in this case the female anatomy involved with sensitivity, orgasm and the closely associated urethral tissues.
Patients who receive PRP via the O-Shot® will experience improved arousal and sensitivity so pivotal to improving sexual relations. They will also notice improved physiological response to stimulation with increased intensity of orgasm and decreased time to achieve orgasm. Additionally, with the O-Shot® there is improvement, sometimes dramatically, in urinary incontinence symptoms, also very common in adult women.
The Effects of the O-SHOT® are Long Lasting
The effects of PRP via the O-Shot® can begin immediately and are long lasting, ramping up over approximately 3 weeks and peaking at about 6 months. Each patient will have a unique experience, but the effects can last up to 1 to 1 1/2 yrs. Depending on the amount and severity of the underlying problems, some women will benefit from a second procedure 4-8 weeks after the first.
Please note, the regenerative powers of PRP have been known and used successfully in medicine for decades in the areas of wound healing, sports injuries and dentistry. More recently, it has been used in general surgery, aesthetics and now for female and (male) sexual dysfunction.
Most Women are Candidates for O-SHOT®
Most women are candidates for the O-Shot® for sexual rejuvenation. In the right hands, the procedure is easy, short and very safe. There is almost no chance of reacting negatively toward your own blood. There is little preparation. It is recommended to avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications for the week preceding the procedure which would shut down platelet mediated healing effects (release of growth factors). You are fully awake during the procedure.
The O-SHOT® is Relatively Fast, Safe, with no Down-Time!
First, a strong topical numbing cream is applied to the tissues. Then about 2 Tbsps. of blood are drawn from an arm vein into a syringe into which a small amount of approved blood thinner has been added. The blood is then placed in an FDA approved centrifuge for PRP procedures and spun into predictable layers. The platelets can then be separated and are immediately ready for use.
Sterile prep is applied to the numbed tissues followed by a tiny nerve block. Most women feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. There are no restrictions afterword; you can return to all of your prior activities!
Some may undergo subsequent injections in order to reach the desired outcome. This may be important with some women who have a scar-like condition known as lichen sclerosis, for which PRP via the O-Shot® is showing significant results.
Many women will get a follow up procedure about once a year in order to maintain the effects.
In Consideration of the Whole Patient
Remember, as the rejuvenation is working in one direction, aging, dietary habits and indiscretions, medications and other factors are working in the other. This is why it is important to address hormonal imbalances, metabolic issues (like diabetes, high blood pressure), diet and lifestyle changes which will have bearing upon the regeneration of tissue. Sometimes emotional issues must be addressed and appropriately treated simultaneously.
Some women will also benefit from regular pelvic exercise with a pelvic stimulator which enhances pelvic blood flow and intensity of muscular contraction and orgasm. We have well-designed devices for this purpose.
It is important to undergo the procedure by a skilled practitioner who only uses FDA approved equipment and is capable of addressing the whole patient to optimize outcome. At KB Holistic our procedures are being performed by Karen Levy, MD, a Board Certified Radiologist with decades of experience in interventional procedures, trained and certified by the American Cosmetic Cellular Association to perform the well-known O-Shot® for women.
