Are you experiencing vaginal laxity, or have difficulty with arousal or reaching orgasm? These are issues that affect most women at some point in their lives. But nowadays, women with sexual difficulties have several treatment options available including laser vaginal rejuvenation and the o-shot. But which is better for your body.

Let’s take a look at both procedures and find out what they do, before determining which would be the right option for you.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is a minimally invasive treatment that utilizes platelet rich plasma (PRP) to treat feminine concerns. PRP involves injecting the patient’s own blood into the treatment area, and has been used in medicine for several years to regenerate tissue, especially for people with athletic injuries. The O-Shot is very safe, as it’s made from the patient’s plasma.

The O-Shot can be used to address issues relating to sexual dysfunction, as it enhances sexual sensitivity. It can improve sex drive, and help women having difficulty with orgasms. The O-Shot is also helpful in reducing stress and urge urinary incontinence.

How the O-Shot works

A small amount of blood is first drawn from the patient’s arm, much like a routine blood test. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to extract the plasma. After this, a very thin needle is used to reinject the plasma into the clitoris and upper vaginal area.

The growth factors in the plasma also stimulate the production of collagen, and this rejuvenates the vaginal tissue in the following months.

The O-Shot is a quick, virtually painless procedure that takes 30-60 minutes to complete. The effects last approximately 2 years.

The O-Shot is life changing for many women because after treatment they find sexual intercourse pleasurable again, and feel more confident and satisfied in the bedroom.

Female orgasmic disorder is a real problem for some women. The condition is characterized by a woman’s inability to achieve an orgasm, even though she may become aroused. It’s a condition that makes some women feel frustrated and distressed, and it negatively impacts their intimate relationships. The O-Shot can be used to address this issue.

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation refers to different procedures that are done to correct changes in the vaginal area brought on by events such as childbirth and menopause. Some women experience a decrease in vaginal muscle tone that can lead to vaginal laxity, along with decreased lubrication and sensation. Vaginal rejuvenation can correct these concerns.

Vaginal rejuvenation has traditionally been carried out using surgical procedures, but laser vaginal rejuvenation is now an option.

Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure that is done to resurface the vaginal tissues, in order to restore the vagina and supporting structures. The procedure tightens and strengthens the vaginal wall and addresses feminine concerns such as vaginal dryness, recurrent infections, and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

FemTouch

FemTouch by Lumenis is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that is designed to improve women’s health. FemTouch is a part of the AcuPulse fractional CO2 laser system.

How FemTouch works

The fractional laser energy is delivered along the entire length of the vaginal wall. The laser rotates 360 degrees, ensuring that the vaginal tissues are uniformly treated.

The laser energy triggers the production of new collagen which stimulates the growth of new tissue, and this tightens the vaginal area.

FemTouch is a simple, in-office procedure that takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. There is no post-procedural downtime, so patients can resume normal activities right away.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation or the O Shot which is better for your body?

Both procedures can improve sexual function and pleasure, but the right procedure for you will depend on the issues being experienced. If your symptoms are linked to orgasmic disorder then the o-shot may be the better option. However, if you are experiencing symptoms such as vaginal laxity and dryness, laser vaginal rejuvenation may be the right treatment for you.

It’s best to consult with a board certified OBGYN for an evaluation.
