What is the Orgasm Shot (O-Shot)?
The O-Shot is a painless, non-surgical, simple and safe procedure that can improve sexual function and treat urinary (stress and urge) incontinence. The procedure introduces Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), obtained using an FDA-approved system, through a painless injection into the clitoris and the upper vaginal wall, which are first numbed completely using a topical and local medical-grade local anesthetic. The O-Shot stimulates increased blood flow, strengthens muscle and tissue, enhances sexual sensitivity and reduces dyspareunia (painful sex). By rejuvenating aging or deteriorating vaginal muscle and tissue, patients’ bladder control improves, leading to significantly reduced or, in some cases, eliminated urinary incontinence.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP, obtained through a painless blood draw, is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines found naturally in your own body, and stimulates and controls healthy regenerative processes, including collagen and soft tissue remodeling, and improves overall health and rejuvenation. PRP has been used successfully for years in surgical and non-surgical procedures to promote improved healing times and optimal results from various procedures.
How does the O-Shot work?
For decades, most scientific research and pharmaceutical development for sexual dysfunction has been geared toward treating erectile dysfunction in men. If you are a woman experiencing sexual dysfunction issues, you are not alone – research suggests that 43 percent of women experience this problem during their lifetime. While women are conditioned to hide symptoms of sexual dysfunction, it is perfectly acceptable to ask for help. O-Shot is a revolutionary treatment specifically designed to help women increase sexual satisfaction and improve the Orgasm System by addressing age-related deterioration of vaginal muscle and soft tissue.
In females specifically, there are myriad factors and functions that must work together fluidly to achieve orgasm – so much so that many in the medical community describe this phenomenon as a physiological system (just like the gastrointestinal or cardiopulmonary system). Like other biological systems, age and exposure ultimately results in deterioration and an overall decrease in function. By injecting concentrated PRP, which contains the body’s natural healing elements, we are able to successfully rejuvenate this damaged tissue and restore function to youthful levels.
*NOTE: Don’t confuse the O-Shot with the G-Shot, a treatment that attempts to enlarge the “G-Spot” (erectile tissue) using an engineered dermal filler, which is largely unsuccessful and fraught with complications.
If you’re suffering from urinary incontinence, you shouldn’t feel guilty – this condition is very common and caused by a weakening of the muscular tissue which controls the retention and flow of urine. The female anatomy has only just recently been fully understood, which is why prior treatments (Kegel exercises and bladder surgery) for urinary incontinence have been ineffective. Unlike men, women do not have a complete muscular urethral sphincter (the “on/off valve”), and therefore can’t fully control their urine flow. The O-Shot is designed to strengthen this tissue to its fullest potential.
What can the O-Shot do for you?
Although each woman’s experience may differ in some ways, most patients report:
- Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Decreased or resolved urinary incontinence (both urge and stress problems)
- A decrease in or cure of Lichen Sclerosus
Why should I come to Seiler Skin for the O-Shot?
Dr. Seiler has been personally trained by the inventor of the O-Shot, Charles Runels, M.D., and fully understands the science which drives the amazing results of this treatment. He is also an expert injector, and trains other practitioners from around the world on how to correctly perform this procedure. In Alabama, only a physician who has been certified in this treatment is legally allowed to provide it to his or her patients.
Dr. Seiler is also well-versed in administering nerve-blocks and anesthetics via injection, which allows him to make this procedure virtually painless. During your comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Seiler will evaluate your medical and sexual history to identify the root cause(s) of your issue and develop a customized treatment that is right for you. He may also refer you to a trusted specialist for hormone evaluation and treatment.
Does the O-Shot hurt?
Many patients are surprised to discover that the O-Shot does not hurt, with little to no discomfort afterwards. It is possible you may feel a slight pinch or warm sensation, which only lasts a couple of minutes. After treatment, you can immediately resume normal physical and sexual activity.
When will I see results from the O-Shot?
In certain cases, women will see an immediate increase in sexual function, desire and overall pleasure. However, results for both sexual function and urinary incontinence typically peak within three to six months and last an average of 12 to 18 months. Some patients may need a second treatment within six to 12 months after their initial treatment.
Is the O-Shot safe?
Absolutely! The O-Shot is a safe and effective procedure when performed at Seiler Skin by Dr. Seiler. It can only be offered at a practice that has been educated, trained and certified by Dr. Runels, the creator of the Vampire procedures. PRP specifically has been described in more than 20,000 published studies as a safe and effective treatment with no reported inherent complications.
Is the O-Shot covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, the O-Shot is an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance.
