O Shot: Non-surgical Relief for Urinary Incontinence and Vaginal Dryness
Urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and even reduced sexual responsiveness are frequent complaints of women who are past their childbearing years or are going through menopause. Thankfully, new treatments are on the horizon offering symptom relief without the pain or downtime associated with surgical intervention.
The O Shot is a revolutionary vaginal rejuvenating treatment that addresses all of these concerns. O Shot uses growth factors from blood plasma to alleviate stress incontinence, dryness and sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty reaching orgasm). This safe, nonsurgical procedure actually utilizes growth factors from your own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation and activate the “Orgasm System.”
Dr. David Ghozland, a pioneer in minimally invasive surgery and rejuvenation techniques, is one of the few physicians specially trained to provide this state-of-the-art therapy for patients suffering from urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and reduced sexual response. If you suffer from any or all of these types of conditions and thought you would simply have to “learn to live with them,” you may be an excellent candidate for the O Shot procedure.
How is the O Shot Performed?
The O Shot is an in-office procedure requiring only local anesthesia. Dr. Ghozland begins your procedure by performing a simple blood draw. This blood sample will then be filtered through a special machine that is used to separate the platelets from the blood. The beneficial growth factors in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are extracted from your blood sample and will be used to rejuvenate the vaginal area during your procedure.
What should I expect during my appointment?
Dr. Ghozland will review your medical history and symptom concerns. He will take the time to answer any questions you may have. A topical numbing cream will then be applied to the injection area and your blood will be drawn and prepared. This procedure is performed using local anesthetic and all of Dr. Ghozland’s patients report feeling little to no discomfort or pain. Once you are numb and the PRP is ready, Dr. Ghozland will make two injections: one near the clitoris, and one inside the upper vagina. Your procedure will take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.
