A consultation is required prior to performing the O-Shot, where you will meet with our PRP injector, Stacie. You will discuss what issues you are facing and what the O-Shot can do to address them. You will have all of your questions answered about how the O-Shot is performed and what you should expect. After your consultation, we will plan a date for your treatment to occur!
The O-Shot Procedure
At your O-Shot appointment, you will meet with Stacie to ask her any remaining questions you have and she will explain to you the steps of the procedure. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the area of treatment as you relax comfortably. As the numbing begins to set in, we will draw a sample of blood to create the PRP solution. About 2 tablespoons (52 ccs) of your blood will be drawn and dispensed into the PRP machine for separation.
We will then wait for approximately 17 minutes while your blood is separating in the centrifuge of the PRP machine. The machine works by spinning the blood rapidly, dispersing the molecular components of your blood based on their precise weight — as a result, all of the beneficial platelets and growth factors from your blood sample are isolated and become the PRP concentration.
Your injector will then collect the potent PRP in a syringe (which ends up being about 3 to 5 ccs after separation) and begin the procedure. Usually 2 to 4 injections are performed in total. You may experience some pinching and cramping with each injection, but the anesthetic does a nice job of keeping this part very tolerable. The procedure takes about 5 minutes in total!
Results After the O-Shot
After the O-Shot, the platelets get to work creating new, healthy cells in the targeted tissues. There are several things you can expect after the O-Shot, including increased lubrication, a heightened sexual desire, and an improved ability to have (multiple) quicker, stronger orgasms. If you face mild urinary stress-incontinence, you’ll notice improvement in just a couple of days, and the onset of increased lubrication and the sexual benefits will become noticeable a few days later.
If you’re planning for your effects to peak before a certain window of time, you’ll want to schedule the O-Shot to occur 2-4 weeks before the intended period. Results tend to last around 6 to 9 months; as soon as you notice the effects begin to fade, you may be ready for another treatment.
