The O-Shot Treatment

Sponsored Content provided by Allen J. Holmes - MD, Biosymmetry Wilmington


The O-Shot is a solution that can give one a healthier and more satisfying sex life. It’s an exciting, new, non-invasive treatment that helps one’s natural growth processes regenerate their vaginal system to increase their overall sexual health. The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has grown tremendously in sexual medicine due to its proven regenerative potential and is a safe and natural. 
 
The O-Shot Treatment
Research has shown that sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence affect more than 60 percent of women.  58 percent of postmenopausal women also experience vaginal dryness. Many women need to realize that they are not alone in this. As women go through normal aging, hormonal changes, and life events such as childbirth, their bodies change. Taking a longer time to achieve an orgasm, or experiencing less intense orgasms, are more common than previously realized. Women most likely also experience urinary leakage with common activities such as sneezing and laughing or have some vaginal dryness. There are now effective options available for these problems. In female rejuvenation, Dr. Allen Holmes uses the regenerative capabilities of PRP selectively to help the treatment of urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness (atrophic vaginitis) and gynecologic disorders such as lichen sclerosis. Women who have decreased clitoral sensation/ability to achieve orgasm and pain during vaginal intercourse may also benefit from this procedure. Many post-menopausal women or patients with gynecological cancers with severe vaginal dryness are unable to have sexual intercourse due to the lack of lubrication and pain at the entrance of their vagina (introitus). These women can benefit from the healing capabilities of PRP and are able to engage in nonpainful sexual relations again.
 
The Ideal Candidate for the O-Shot Treatment at BioSymmetry Wilmington
The changes that come with aging and menopause are a part of life, but that does not mean they also have to spell the end of your sex life. Almost two-thirds of women experience vaginal dryness after menopause and about the same number suffers from urinary incontinence. Enjoying sex is a part of being human and that should not go away with the passing years because one’s vaginal lubrication and sensitivity have declined.
 
 
The O-Shot Procedure
1. First, blood is drawn from a vein and processed to obtain the PRP.
2. A small amount of topical numbing ointment is placed on the treatment area.
3. A clitoral block (local anesthetic block) is performed and numbing cream is used to help numb the area.
4. The PRP is mixed with several ingredients to activate the platelets and to reduce the discomfort during the injection.
5. PRP is injected into specific areas to help treat your area of concern.
There is mild swelling and discomfort, but most patients do not need to take anything more than Tylenol. The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes after the PRP is processed, and there are no activity restrictions afterwards.
 
Treatment Results to Expect
Biosymmetry Wilmington patients have reported increases in sensitivity throughout the vaginal area, lubrication and more comfort during sexual activity. They also report increased interest in sex, possibly because of the other improvements. 
These results last for between six months and two years. We’ve found that patients can extend their results for a longer duration with a follow-up O-Shot at six months to one year after their initial procedure.
For best results, other complementary strategies such as health optimization, nutrient and hormonal support are vital for the success of all O-Shot treatments. Dr Holmes has found great success in combining the Mona Lisa laser, a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses a laser to revitalize the inner and outer vaginal tissue, with the PRP growth factors of the O-Shot. He believes these two procedures complement one another very well.
