Dr. Bartels is excited to offer the much talked about O-Shot procedure to his patients. The O-Shot has been the topic of numerous news stories and was offered in the Oscars “swag bags” for Hollywood’s elite! But forget about the hype, this procedure is for real. The science and research supporting the use of one’s own blood products to help heal and regenerate damaged tissue is impressive. Professional athletes have been using this technology to heal injuries faster and more completely for several years.
The O-Shot mirrors the “Vampire Facelift” in that it utilizes PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to help grow and regenerate healthier tissue. The way it works: blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and prepared in an FDA-approved centrifuge machine to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP with its growth factors and regenerative properties is then injected into the clitoris and upper vagina (both of which are numbed), where they start working their magic.
Women who receive the O-Shot experience more (and better) orgasms, increased libido and lubrication, and vaginal tightening. Medical issues like painful intercourse (dyspareunia), Lichen Sclerosis, bladder leakage and urinary urgency are also improved with just one injection.
Many patients report almost immediate results, but it may take a few weeks to a few months to optimize your response.
For women suffering from embarrassing and bothersome bladder issues, but are not interested in bladder sling surgery with it’s down time and risk or costly medications with numerous side effects, the O-Shot is a “no brainer” solution. The O-Shot is performed in the office after applying topical numbing cream. The PRP is prepared over 15 minutes while the numbing creams kicks in. The painless injection takes just a few seconds. No sex that night, but no other restrictions. That’s it!
