The O-Shot® for Women - PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
A non-invasive treatment to alleviate female urinary incontinence & sexual disfunction
Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center is pleased to provide the O-Shot (yes, “O” stands for orgasm), an injection treatment available for women suffering from sexual dysfunction and a range of functional issues stemming from childbirth and menopause. It is also valuable for women who just want to improve their sex lives!
The non-surgical treatment uses the client’s own blood to create Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. This plasma is rich in powerful growth factors that stimulate your stem cells, promoting a number of cell-regenerating benefits, including increased blood flow by stimulation of new blood vessel formation, awakening dormant nerve cells, enhancing the function of stem cells in the treated tissues. and new collagen formation leading to the growth of healthy tissue. In effect, the O-shot rejuvenates the entire vagina.
What Medical Issues Does the O-Shot Treat?
The O-Shot treats several conditions related to menopause and childbirth, including postpartum vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, chronic pain from childbirth, dryness, chronic inflammation (lichen sclerosis), and more.

Dr. Barad or Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center’s fully licensed aestheticians draw blood from your arm. This tube of your blood is then placed in a special centrifuge, which spins the blood to produce Platelet Rich Plasma. A powerful numbing cream is applied to the vaginal area, and once the area is adequately numbed, about 30 minutes, Lidocaine is also strategically injected to ensure good numbing of the area to be treated. The PRP is then carefully injected, providing a pain-free experience.
Dr. Barad has been fully certified by the Cellular Medicine Association, the licensing body for this procedure. The O-Shot takes approximately 60 minutes to perform.
Possible side effects are only those typical to any type of injection, like minor bleeding or bruising at the injection site, and rarely, infection.
Immediately after treatment, you are free to drive yourself and resume your daily activities. Benefits are typically noticed within days of the treatment, but may take several months. We recommend that sexual activity be resumed the day of the procedure, as this helps circulate the growth factors to the desired tissues.
If there is minimal improvement after the first O-shot, another treatment at 1 month is recommended. Rarely, some women require a series of monthly O-shots to get to their desired end point. Sometimes hormone level evaluations are needed to optimize outcomes. Most women have yearly treatments to maintain optimal sexual function.
Some women may not respond to the O-Shot—or may not be candidates if they have poor platelet function or have anatomy that limits certain outcomes.
*Some women may not respond to the O-Shot—or may not be candidates if they have poor platelet function. More than one treatment may be required to reach optimal results for you depending on your initial evaluation.
