What is the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot®, also known as the Orchid Shot™, is a non-surgical treatment that uses blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate the vaginal tissue and improve sexual function. The procedure is performed by injecting the growth factors into specific areas of the vaginal wall and clitoris.request an appointment
What Are the Benefits of the O-Shot®?
Some potential benefits of the O-Shot® include:
- Improved sexual function, including increased arousal, orgasm intensity, and sexual satisfaction
- Increased lubrication
- Relief from urinary incontinence
- Improved symptoms of stress incontinence, overactive bladder, and interstitial cystitis
- Improved symptoms of sexual dysfunction, such as pain during sex or difficulty achieving orgasm
Who is a candidate for the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot® is typically recommended for women who are experiencing sexual dysfunction or urinary incontinence. It may be appropriate for women who have not responded to other treatments or who are unable to take certain medications.
How the O-Shot® is performed:
The O-Shot® procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
The following steps are involved:
The patient’s blood is collected and placed in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors.
The growth factors are then activated using a special solution.
The patient is given a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
The growth factors are injected into specific areas of the vaginal wall and clitoris.
The procedure is completed, and the patient can go home the same day.
Risks and side effects:
As with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks and side effects associated with the O-Shot®.
These may include:
- Allergic reactions to the materials used in the procedure
- Discomfort or pain at the injection site
- Bruising or swelling
Results and duration:
The results of the O-Shot® may vary from person to person. Some patients may notice improvements in sexual function and urinary incontinence within a few days, while others may take longer to see results. The effects of the O-Shot® typically last for several months, and booster shots may be necessary to maintain results.
Nothing contained on this website is intended to represent a promise, guarantee or warranty that any patient who undergoes the O-Shot® (Orchid Shot™) procedure will achieve a particular result. Individual results do vary, and no responsibility is assumed for failure to achieve a desired result. No promise or representation, guarantee, or warranty regarding its use, benefit, or other quality is made. No representations that the use of this procedure is approved by the FDA or any other agency of the federal or state government is made.
The O-Shot® (Orchid Shot™) procedure is not an FDA approved procedure; the FDA does not govern procedures (which the O-Shot® is), nor does the FDA govern PRP (which is a “minimally manipulated” isolate of the person’s own blood), just as the FDA does not govern a person’s urine, saliva, or skin.
Multiple studies have shown that PRP can be used to improve blood flow, increase collagen production, regenerate nerve, and remodel scars into more normal tissue. The vast majority of the studies show that PRP is safe and rarely causes complications, but the results in any one particular patient cannot be predicted. Any sign of ill effects should be reported to your provider of the procedure.
