The Orgasm Shot® (O-Shot®) involves PRP Therapy to help with female sexual dysfunction or alleviate the symptoms of urinary incontinence or Lichen sclerosus. The Orgasm Shot® at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic uses injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood so that you can enjoy sex again with stronger and more frequent orgasms.
PRP has been an alternative to surgery in regenerating skin tissue in wound healing and improve and refine scar tissue, orthopaedics, ENT, neurosurgery and maxillofacial surgery by promoting safe and natural healing. The technique in non-surgical aesthetics was first used by Dr Charles Runels, creator of the Vampire FaceLift®.
The (O-Shot®) is also used to treat Lichen sclerosus which causes significant itching and is often confused for thrush. It results in inflammation which eventually becomes scar tissue and can cause deformity and destruction to the clitoral region, urethra, vaginal opening and peri-anal region, making sexual intercourse painful and creating difficulty in passing urine and stools in severe cases.
Blood platelets contain growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. Plasma contains fibrinogen, a protein that catches platelets at a wound site to form a clot. Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy is therefore a completely natural way for your skin to rejuvenate and repair since it uses your own blood and your body’s own healing powers in inducing tissue growth.
An amount of blood is drawn, just like in a blood test, and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and plasma from the other components of blood. The PRP is usually then activated with calcium (chloride or gluconate) to trick the platelets into thinking that they are in the body and the body has been injured.
The PRP is then injected into the clitoris and the upper vagina. Multi-potent stem cells already in your skin therefore become activated ‘believing’ that new and younger tissue is needed. As a result, new tissue that includes new collagen is grown, new fatty tissue is produced for skin smoothness and new blood vessels (neovascularisation) are formed to increase blood flow. This encourages vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation, leading to improved lubrication, sensitivity, and ease and intensity of orgasm.
