How is an O-Shot performed?
During your O-Shot in Fort Worth, we'll draw around 6-8ccs of blood from the patient using a small syringe, similar to a simple blood draw. Using designated FDA-approved tubes, the harvested blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasmas from other components of the blood. The PRP rises to the top in the form of a golden-colored liquid, which is then extracted into another vial or tube.
The cosmetic provider will use topical numbing cream on the vaginal tissues to ensure optimal comfort. The PRP is carefully injected into the labial, vaginal, and clitoral tissues, including just underneath the skin of the vagina. The specific locations depend on your unique needs and goals. The entire procedure concludes within a few minutes, depending on the number of injections necessary.
Patients report no pain or discomfort during the procedure. However, you should expect mild redness, swelling, itching, and discomfort in the treatment areas for a few hours after the treatment. The side effects gradually dissipate over a few days.
