Understanding the Difference Between the O-Shot & the P-Shot

As you get older, it’s natural to lose some of your sexual vitality, whether you’re a woman or a man. “Natural” doesn’t matter, though, if you’re unhappy with the development. In the past, perhaps the most common treatment for either gender was hormone replacement therapy, but there are cancer risks involved, chances that you might not want to take.

Dr. Angelina Devera and her team at Laser & Vitality Institute in Fountain Valley, California, offer both the O-Shot and the P-Shot® minimally invasive, regenerative medical techniques that help you recapture more youthful body conditions, revitalizing and reviving your sex life.

How do you know which treatment is right for you? It’s easy. The O-Shot is for women, and the P-Shot is for men. Here’s what you need to know about each.

Regenerative techniques

Both the O-Shot and the P-Shot have similar medical foundations and were developed by the same doctor, using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) techniques. This therapy is part of the exciting medical field of regenerative medicine. Instead of drug-based treatments that often carry unwanted side effects and health hazards of their own, platelets can be autologous, harvested from your own body. PRP serums derive from your own blood sample. Dr. Devera prepares this sample for reinjection into your body as part of the O-Shot or P-Shot treatment.

The O-Shot

Postmenopausal women often suffer from a collection of physical symptoms grouped together as a disorder called the genitourinary symptoms of menopause (GSM). Common symptoms for GSM include:

This is only a partial list of the problems encompassed by GSM and attributed to decreased estrogen production.

The O-Shot uses blood drawn at the start of your appointment that provides the raw materials for treatment. Preparing the sample for your O-Shot takes about 10 minutes and concentrates platelets containing human growth factor hormones. You’ll receive local anesthetic administered in a cream, applied to the injection areas. Dr. Devera injects the O-Shot preparation strategically around your clitoris and upper vagina. The growth factors in the injection stimulate tissue regrowth.

The result is a reduction in the severity of GSM symptoms. As a welcome side effect, many women report that orgasms are easier and more intense after treatment. While every woman responds differently, you may have some welcome surprises after O-Shot treatment.

The P-Shot

While men suffer aging less than women, there are still changes associated with decreased testosterone that amount to a male version of menopause. Unsurprisingly, treatment similar to the O-Shot counteracts these effects in men as well. The P-Shot also starts with a similar blood preparation injected into the penis. Again, results vary by patient, but you may see effects such as:

Both the O-Shot and P-Shot promise renewed sexual vigor for both women and men, as well as other therapeutic responses, using nothing more than a specially prepared sample of your own blood.
