Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure that involves the injection of platelet rich blood, which activates healing growth factors, from the patient’s own body to promote the repair of injured tissues and stimulate the regeneration of damaged cells at the injection site.
This procedure uses the body’s own natural regeneration process to activate stem cells and grow new tissue. Originally used in reconstructive surgery, dentistry and sports medicine to accelerate joint, tissue and wound repair, PRP has been refined for a range of cosmetic and other medical applications. Containing only autologous components, PRP has been clinically proven to be one of the safest and most effective cellular rejuvenation treatments available.
Also known as the Orgasm Shot, works by injecting the body’s own growth factors into the nerve control center of the clitoris and vagina. The O-Shot® can help rejuvenate the vagina while simultaneously treating urinary incontinence issues.
The O-Shot® procedure uses the seven different growth factors naturally occurring in every patient’s blood. Once injected, the growth factors stimulate the nerve cells to rejuvenate and repair themselves, resulting in a younger, more responsive sexual response and function. Many patients report that a single O-Shot® treatment can have results that last a year or even longer, although results vary by individual.
The O-Shot® is an innovative, completely non-surgical procedure that works by rejuvenating the natural sexual response system by stimulating the growth of tissues responsible for orgasm by increasing vaginal and clitoral sensitivity.
More than 50 percent of women report either a low libido or some form of sexual dysfunction, making it one of the most common chronic issues that women face today.
The O-Shot® is an in-office procedure done in about 5 minutes.
Every woman responds to the O-Shot® differently, but many patients who have undergone the O-Shot® procedure have reported:
1. An improvement in natural lubrication
2. Reduced or completely resolved issues with both urge and stress types of urinary incontinence.
3. More intense orgasms
4. Younger, smoother and more radiant skin of the vulva
5. An improved intensity with clitoral stimulation
6. Increased frequency of orgasms
7. Reduced or resolved pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
8. Greater numbers of vaginal orgasms
9. A tightening of the vaginal opening
When Smooth Synergy Medspa invited me to have a needle injected into my clitoris last February, I didn't want to do it. I didn't say no directly. I said yes, because I'm a sex writer and I know a good story when I see one. But once I said yes, I kept putting it off, and putting it off, and putting it off some more.
I can handle pain; I've gotten three tattoos and have broken bones and did all of that like a total badass. But there was something about a needle full of my own blood injected straight into my clitoris and vagina that made said body part retreat back up inside me like a small, pink turtle's head.
I rationalized this decision brilliantly. The O-Shot, after all, was designed for women who are having a difficult time reaching orgasm. It's also for menopausal women or anyone who might be experiencing pain due to dryness during sex.
I'm 33, pretty damn moist, and my ability to orgasm ranks somewhere up there with a 19-year-old boy's.
Eventually, however, my passion for actually doing my job (and my guilty conscience) led me to the doors of Smooth Synergy in Manhattan, where you, too, for the trifling cost of $1,900 can have your own blood injected into your clitoris and vagina for health or recreation.
Any nervousness I felt about the procedure vanished when I met the spa's doctor, Dr. George. He was patient, thorough, kind, and also hilarious. I pointed to an award on his wall. "Oh," I said, "You won most compassionate doctor." George laughed, "Yeah in 2013. The real question you have to ask yourself is what I've been doing lately!"
I would have laughed harder, but the numbing cream applied to my lady bits had me gripped in a paroxysm of total fear.
The O-Shot was designed by Dr. Charles Runels, the same man responsible for the Vampire Facelift, and the general procedure follows the same guidelines. Your blood is taken and put through a centrifuge where plasma-rich platelets are separated from the rest of your "garbage blood".
Then, using two shots, these platelets are injected into your clitoris and vagina. The idea here is that they encourage stem cell growth and make you feel more sensitive and more aroused. Some people get the shot once a year, but some believe that just getting it done once will be all you need.
My boyfriend Buddy came with me to film the entire encounter for YourTango's Facebook Live. He was lovely and supportive and insanely eager to try out my fancy "Two thousand dollar cunt job" as he called it, albeit fondly.
For some women, the shot does nothing. For others, it's life-changing. I fell somewhere in the middle. The shot doesn't require any healing time. I went from my appointment back to work where I feasted on a burger and strategically blocked creeps on Facebook.
That evening, Buddy and I got to work testing out the new car, as it were. I had felt horny all day, tingly, hyper aware of my clit and weirdly, of my G-spot. Our sex was like our usual sex, but turned up, as Spinal Tap would say, to 11.
My junk felt swollen and sensitive, like that weird giddy feeling when your leg has fallen asleep and it just starts to wake up. My boyfriend said he could feel a difference, which was neat, but I could have done without his scientific reporting while he was still inside of me.
If the O-Shot had such a strong effect on me (and it's continued to rock my sex life), then I can't even begin to imagine what a godsend it must be for people suffering from sexual dysfunction who are in need of help.
And for the record, there's a P-shot too. I have yet to decide whether or not I am going to put my boyfriend through that.
Depends on just how charming he is in the next couple of days or so, I suppose. But don't worry, we'll keep you posted.
