About The O SHOT:
After having children or just with natural aging, the vaginal tissue can become loose and less sensitive, leading to less pleasure and medical conditions. If you have decreased desire, vaginal dryness, lax skin, or incontinence, you
may find relief with the O-Shot. Also known as the Orgasm Shot, the O-Shot is a nonsurgical treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to stimulate growth and sensitivity in your upper vagina and clitoris. Ohio Stem Cell is a certified provider of this and Dr. Runels' other PRP treatments, like the Vampire Facelift and the Vampire Wing Lift. If you are interested in enhancing your sexual health or treating a medical condition, schedule an appointment at Ohio Stem Cell.
The O-Shot® [Orgasm Shot®] may help...
Results may vary
The O-Shot can help many women with sexual dysfunction and certain medical conditions by stimulating the growth of new cells and increasing sensitivity.
You may benefit from the O-Shot if you have:
After your consultation, you will be asked to relax and recline in a private treatment room while a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. A topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied at the injection site for your comfort. Then, we will create the PRP serum through a separation process with a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors needed. Depending on your concerns and goals, our providers may combine another nonsurgical vaginal treatment, like Shockwave therapy for female sexual dysfunction.
After your O-Shot, you should be able to leave and resume normal activities. We will discuss how long you should avoid strenuous activity, like exercise and intercourse, to allow yourself time to heal. You may have some mild swelling and bruising for the first few days, which should subside naturally. It may take a few weeks to see improvements as your vaginal tissue heals and regenerates. You should see full results in about three months with an increased libido and sensitivity. Typically, results last for 1 – 3 years, but our medical staff will discuss when you should return for your next treatment.
The Vampire Wing Lift is a procedure that combines platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with a dermal filler, like Juvéderm, to rejuvenate the labia. Created by PRP pioneer Dr. Charles Runnels, the vampire wing lift uses growth factors from your own blood combined with a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler to improve the shape and appearance of the vaginal lips. We may often recommend the vampire wing lift if your sexual dysfunction is caused by loose skin from aging or childbirth.
You may be embarrassed to talk about your experiences with decreased sexual sensation, vaginal tightness, and other feminine health issues, but it could be worth it to find a solution. Contact Ohio Stem Cell to schedule a private consultation about your concerns. A certified provider of the O-Shot and other nonsurgical treatments for female sexual dysfunction, Ohio Stem Cell may be able to improve your health and happiness.
The numbers of women who suffer with sexual problems--30-50% (depending upon the age) are discouraging (the higher incidence is seen in younger women). And remember, these numbers only include women who psychologically distressed. If a woman avoids sex because one of these problems but claims to not be bothered by the lack of sexual activity, then she's not counted in these statistics. Is that really the best way to tabulate the incidence of a problem? Perhaps. But, suppose we didn't count high cholesterol as a problem unless it bothered the patient with a heart attack? Is it possible that a women just learns to tolerate less than optimal sexual activity (rather than Activating the Female Orgasm System) and so eventually does not consider the sexual condition to be a problem?
ince the number 30-50% listed in the medical literature considers only those bothered by the symptoms, the actual number of women with the 4 conditions described above would be greater than 50%--some estimate to be at least 60%. Perhaps even more disturbing, think of the ripple effect throughout society as children and communities suffer with the breakdown of marriage relationships because of these problems. With 150 million women in the US in 2010, at least 50 million women suffer with these problems. What ripple effect does that have on families in the USA? So, why do so many women suffer in silence?
Research shows that only about 14% of women EVER talk to ANY of their physicians about sex. With around 4 in 10 suffering from a sexual disorder, why do only about 1 in 10 ever talk to their physician about sex? According to Practice Bulletin in Obstetrics and Gynecology (April 2011), the reason may be that (with the exception of short-term hormone replacement) research shows few proven treatment options. Both physician and patient would be discouraged by discussing a problem for which there is no proven solution--so the doctor just doesn't ask. Notice that the only treatment offered is vaginal estrogen or topical testosterone or psychotherapy.And even with the hormone therapies, the results were described as short-term. No wonder only 14% of women ever discuss sexual problems with their physician--if the woman is already on hormones (or pre-menopausal), the only known solution, per the official recommendation of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, appears to be psycho-social therapies!
Seems men have plenty of options for medical therapy, while women get psychological counseling and maybe some hormones. It's about time for that to change. So, what's new... For several years, blood-derived growth factors have been used to regenerate the face. You can see the science that supports using PRP to rejuvenate the face here: Vampire Facelift ®. Multiple news reports described the Vampire Facelift ® procedure: The New York Times, the Doctors' Show, Dr. Oz, and others. Details can be found also on Wikipedia where the Vampire Facelift® and unipotent stem cells are described.
Biopsy studies show that when platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected, then stem cells multiply and grow new younger tissue. In the same way PRP regenerates the skin of the face, it appears PRP regenerates healthy vaginal tissue. So, using this same technology, the O-Shot ® procedure works by using PRP to stimulate stem cells to grow healthier vaginal tissue. And, the whole procedure for processing the blood and injecting the growth factors takes less than 10 minutes in the doctor's office!
Warning: There is no magic shot that takes the place of all the other factors necessary for amazing sex(emotional, hormonal, relationship, general health). We highly recommend working with a sex educator to find the best ways to Activate the FEMALE ORGASM SYSTEM. (If you are a sex educator, keep reading and you will see how you can participate in this important project).
First the doctor or nurse applies a numbing cream to the vagina and the arm. Then blood is drawn from the arm in the same was as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process takes about 10 minutes and can be done there in the room with the patient. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain.
The FDA approved the use of the kit in the above video to prepare PRFM for use in the knee to activate unipotent stem cells and rejuvenate tissue. The same kit is used routinely in the face in the Vampire Faclift (R) procedure.
There has never been even one serious reaction to PRP prepared by an FDA approved kit in any part of the body (the FDA has not evaluated the use of this kit for preparing PRP for use in the vagina...but this procedure only uses the woman's own blood to prepare the injection).
Higher concentrations of calcium chloride can usually be found in the tissue than in the blood, so when the doctor adds calcium chloried to the PRP, then the platelets think that tissue injury released the calcium into the blood stream. PRP has been used effectively for a variety of treatments for more than 20 years. Over 500,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no significant side effects or complications reported (unlike the granuloma formation that happens with other accepted procedures).
This extra calcium chloride triggers the platelets to release at least 7 different growth factors that then trigger the unipotent stem cells to grow younger tissue--activating unipotent stem cells. The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the O-Spot--a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. The woman usually enjoys the effects of the O-Shot™ almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. So, the O-Shot® (or Orgasm Shot®) is a nonsurgical procedure that uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Female Orgasm System. Thus far, almost all women receiving O-Shot™procedure enjoy an increase in their sexual response, and for many the increase is dramatic. These sometimes experience other effects listed here:
Female sexual dysfunction can occur at any age and manifest as many different issues. Some of the most common are a lack of desire, pain during intercourse, decreased sensitivity or satisfaction, vaginal dryness, as well as lax skin and muscles in the labia. These problems can lead to a lack of confidence and a strain in relationships. It is not uncommon to experience short periods of time where you lack desire or have other concerns, but when problems last too long or you are in pain, you should schedule an appointment at Ohio Stem Cell. However, we believe that all women deserve a healthy, happy sex life so schedule a consultation to take back your sexuality with treatments like O-shot and Shockwave
Since female sexual dysfunction includes many problems and issues, there is no one cause. One of the most common contributors to female sexual dysfunction is age. Just before (perimenopause), during, and after menopause, women tend to experience vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive, and sensitivity due to fluctuations in hormone levels. After pregnancy and childbirth, many women have problems with vaginal laxity and the appearance of the labia. Female sexual dysfunction can also be linked to anxiety, stress, depression, and other health conditions. During your consultation, we will ask about your medical history and other factors that may be contributing to your problem. This will help us choose the best treatment.
Female sexual dysfunction is a broad term that encompasses any problem that impacts your interest or enjoyment in sexual activity. The four most common types of female sexual dysfunction are lack of desire, trouble with arousal, inability to achieve orgasm, and pain during intercourse. Lack of desire is one of the most reported problems women have, which means no interest in any sexual activity, including masturbation. Trouble with arousal indicates a problem with sexual stimulation. This leads to a lack of natural lubrication production, which can make intercourse less pleasurable and even painful. The inability to achieve an orgasm or decreased sensation should be discussed with our medical staff so they can help suggest treatment options. Chronic pain during intercourse, also known as dyspareunia, should also be diagnosed and treated.
After your diagnosis, we will be able to discuss which treatment options are best for your specific problem and goals. At Ohio Stem Cell we offer two advanced nonsurgical treatments for female sexual dysfunction.
ShockWave is a newer procedure that uses pulse waves to improve blood circulation and repair blood vessels in the vaginal area. This is a noninvasive treatment therapy for erectile dysfunction) can tighten the labia while also increasing sensitivity and natural lubrication. Shockwave is designed to treat the root cause of female sexual dysfunction so it can give you long-lasting results. Shockwve can help if you are experiencing sexual dysfunction after having a child or due to hormonal changes during perimenopause or menopause.
If you are experiencing any problems with sexual dysfunction, schedule an appointment to discuss your options. We understand that these matters can be difficult to discuss, but we are is highly professional specialists with years of experience in patient care. Learn more about these nonsurgical treatment options during your consultation.
Lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that presents as little white, shiny areas on the skin, which can grow and become bigger and more prevalent. These patches commonly appear in the anal and genital areas; however, they may develop on any area of the skin, including the neck, shoulders, chest, legs, and face. One of the most common forms of the condition is vulvar lichen sclerosus when the problem affects the external genital region of a woman. Treatment is generally needed for lichen sclerosus in the genitals to relieve symptoms and prevent further problems. If left untreated, these lesions can become larger plaques, injuring the skin and leading to bleeding, itching, and swollen blisters. If you have symptoms of lichen sclerosis, schedule an appointment at Ohio Stem Cell for an assessment. Experienced and trained staff provides our clients compassionate care if you have a skin problem that is causing a disturbance in your life, like lichen sclerosis.
Lichen sclerosus is not contagious so it cannot be spread from person to person. The leading cause of lichen sclerosus is unknown, but evidence suggests it may be hereditary. Other possible causes of lichen sclerosus are a hormone imbalance, a problem with the immune system, or past skin damage. Postmenopausal women are at the greatest risk for developing lichen sclerosus, especially in the vulva. Men who are not circumcised have a higher risk of developing genital lichen sclerosus on their foreskin.
Lichen sclerosus may develop on any area of your skin, but it is most common on the external genitals (vulva, labia, anus, penis). In the early stages, you may have no symptoms of lichen sclerosus or small white spots. As the condition develops, you may notice:
At your consultation with we'll ask about your medical history and perform a comprehensive examination to better understand your skin condition and the magnitude of the problem. After the examination, we can discuss your treatment options, may refer you to another physician and/or develop a custom plan that will relieve your symptoms and prevent future problems. The most common treatment for lichen sclerosis in the genital areas is a prescription steroid ointment to reduce inflammation, itching, and discomfort. If a steroid ointment does not improve your condition, stronger methods may be considered, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma), medication (tricyclic antidepressants, acitretin, or tacrolimus), or ultraviolet (UV) light treatments.
Lichen sclerosus is a skin disease that generally requires treatment if it's in the genital areas. If you have white spots that could be lichen sclerosis, we encourage you to contact Ohio Stem Cell to schedule an assessment.
