Understanding the Benefits of the O-Shot
As women age, diminished sexual desire, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and reduced sexual responsiveness are common and unwanted symptoms. Now, thanks to break through technology, a procedure known as the O-Shot is helping to revitalize sexual health and self-confidence for women – without surgery or downtime. In Los Angeles, Dr. David Ghozland is one of the few physicians specially trained to provide this state-of-the-art procedure that has the power to dramatically change a woman’s quality of life.
According to Dr. Ghozland, the O-Shot uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own blood to effectively and naturally treat a variety of age-related issues that impact sexual performance and satisfaction. The platelet rich plasma is administered by injection into the vagina (after local anesthesia of course – the procedure itself is completely painless). The PRP works by stimulating stem cells, collagen, and blood vessels, effectively rejuvenating the vaginal region and making it feel and respond to stimulation the way it did when a woman was younger.
The O-Shot for women is used to treat urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and even reduced sexual responsiveness in women, particularly those who are post-menopausal. Both safe and nonsurgical, the procedure helps stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. Other benefits include:
- Relief from painful intercourse (dyspuernia)
- Increased clitoral sensitivity and arousal
- Improved skin texture of the vulva (vaginal lips)
- Tighter vaginal opening for more pleasurable intercourse
- Increased arousal from G-spot stimulation
- More intense and more frequent orgasms
For patients wondering if the O-Shot is right for them, Dr. Ghozland recommends a thorough consultation that includes a review of your medical history, symptoms and expected outcome. For those who are considered good candidates, the O-Shot is performed in-office as an outpatient procedure, with no down time required. Most patients are in and out in as little as 30 minutes. While the time investment is short, the potentially dramatic improvement in sexual vitality and quality of life can have positive ramifications for years to come.
