Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the O-Shot

At Premier Health & Wellness, under the expert direction of Dr. Dominique Smith, our goal is that women in Lithonia, Georgia

Sexual health has long been an overlooked area of women’s wellness, forcing many women to simply resign themselves to a less-than-stellar sex life. Increasingly, however, the medical world is responding to the idea that women can, and should, be as happy in the bedroom as men, and we’re pleased to be part of this movement through our sexual health services, which includes the O-Shot.

At Premier Health & Wellness, under the expert direction of Dr. Dominique Smith, our goal is that women in Lithonia, Georgia have access to the resources they need to live their lives well. And when it comes to sexual health, we offer the latest tools available, including the cutting-edge ThermiVa® laser system and the highly effective O-Shot.

Here’s a look at everything you need to know about the O-Shot.

The trouble with women’s sexual health is…

Female sexual health is anything but simple since it involves your:

Because of the wide range of influences on your sexual health, there’s no magic bullet when it comes to treating female sexual dysfunction (FSD). And the problem is a large one — the World Health Organization reports that FSD affects between 25% and 63% of women worldwide, and these numbers jump to 68% to 86.5% after menopause.

But new science and technology are coming online that’s changing the way we approach the problem, with great success.

Behind the O-Shot

The O-Shot is a fantastic tool that boosts your vaginal health by using your body’s own incredible resources — your platelets. The primary role of your platelets is to clot your blood, but these versatile cells also contain powerful growth factors, or proteins, that help your body with regeneration and repair.

One of the primary drivers of female sexual dysfunction is poor vaginal health, which can occur for any number of reasons, including:

If the tissue in your vagina is dry or thinning it can lead to painful sex, which can put a serious damper on your sex drive. With the O-Shot, we give your vaginal tissue a boost in regenerative resources that call upon your collagen to strengthen your tissue. These growth factors also encourage vascularization and subsequent enervation, which can help greatly with your sensitivity.

How the O-Shot works

When you come in for an O-Shot, we draw a sample of your own blood and separate out the platelets in a special centrifuge. We then reinject the concentrate into your vaginal tissue, where the platelets go to work to rebuild your tissue. The entire procedure is quick and easy, and there’s no downtime afterward.

It may take a series of O-Shots to regain your vaginal health, and we space these apart by several weeks to allow time for your body to respond. After 6-12 weeks, you should realize an improvement in your vaginal health, though results vary among our patients. To maintain your great results, we simply put you on a once-yearly regimen of O-Shots, which we can do during your annual wellness exam.

To give your sexual health a boost with an O-Shot, please call us at (678) 671-4003 or use our easy online scheduling tool to request an appointment.
