Sexual health is an integral part of overall health. Feeling your best in those most intimate of moments, however, can sometimes require assistance from healthcare professionals. Vaginal rejuvenation is just one type of treatment option that includes a variety of techniques to help women recover and enhance their sexual satisfaction.
How does the O Shot work?
While most vaginal rejuvenation strategies use medical products or surgeries, the O Shot, or “orgasm shot” is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapy designed to provide lasting enhancement of a women’s sexual experiences. The treatment requires about 40 minutes to complete and does not require any recovery time. The results of an O Shot generally last about one year but some patients benefit from repeating the procedure more frequently.
Similar to other techniques such as the Vampire facelift based on the use of protein-rich plasma (PRP), the O Shot is a method of stimulating the migration of rejuvenating stem cells to targeted body sites.
The procedure begins by taking a blood sample from the patient’s arm. This sample is then placed in a special centrifuge that will spin down the heavier contents of the blood, such as red blood cells, and leave a layer of PRP. The PRP is then injected using a very fine needle into the patient’s clitoris and the parts of the vagina most strongly associated with stimulating vaginal orgasms.
What are the results of an O Shot treatment?
The areas treated with the O Shot develop enhanced blood flow. This can create some narrowing of the vaginal opening, increasing the surface area of the vagina that receives contact during sexual activity. This also contributes to enhanced urinary continence in some women.
Enhanced blood flow in areas treated with the O Shot also leads to increased sensitivity to stimulation. As a result, some women experience their first vaginal orgasms after the treatment. Women also report stronger and more frequent orgasms in addition to increased sexual desire.
How does Thermi VA work?
Thermi VA is another non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation technique performed on an outpatient basis in about 30 minutes. The procedure also makes use of the body’s own repair mechanisms to restore vaginal function and enhance sexual pleasure.
Thermi VA uses a specially designed electrode to deliver targeted radiofrequency heating treatments to the vagina and vulva. This stimulates collagen formation, leading to a tightening and firming of these areas. Due to the firming effect on the external genitalia, Thermi VA is also referred to as non-surgical labiaplasty.
What are the results of a Thermi VA treatment?
Similar to the O Shot, treatment with Thermi VA enhances sexual pleasure through vaginal tightening and firming. It also improves urinary continence and can restore confidence to women concerned with the appearance of the external genitalia.
