FAQs about the O-Shot®

How does the O-Shot® work?

The O-Shot® harnesses the body’s in-built regeneration processes. It involves administering highly concentrated healing and growth factors previously collected from the client’s blood plasma to treat female sexual dysfunction. This stimulates a pronounced revitalisation at the puncture site.

How much does an O-Shot® treatment cost?

At our clinic, an O-Shot® treatment costs CHF 1500. As we strive to tailor the treatment as well as possible to your needs, the initial consultation appointment is also included in this price.

Is the O-Shot® a natural treatment method?

The O-Shot® is a completely natural procedure using exclusively autologous materials. Your blood is the basic material from which we collect the necessary factors for regeneration. We use a proven technical procedure to separate the liquid and solid components of the blood. The blood plasma – that is to say, the liquid component of blood – forms the basis of the O-Shot®. It contains valuable growth factors that naturally promote the body’s in-built regenerative functions.

Is the O-Shot® suitable for me?

In principle, the O-Shot® is suitable for all clients because, thanks to the natural substances involved, people with allergies and particularly sensitive women also tolerate the treatment well. As a result, we can administer this form of therapy to women of all age groups who might come to us with different indications.

The O-Shot® could be particularly suitable if:

  • you are looking for a preventive treatment to promote your sexual health
  • you would like enhanced clitoral stimulation
  • you want a more toned, rejuvenated vulva with a tighter vaginal entrance
  • you are seeking to restore your biological sexual function
  • you want to reach orgasm more easily
  • you would like to experience more frequent, more intense orgasms
  • you want to enhance your libido
  • you experience pain during intercourse
  • you suffer from vaginal dryness
  • you are searching for a natural, minimally invasive method to treat incontinence
  • you would like to revitalise your pelvic floor
  • you suffer from lichen sclerosus or lichen planus in the genital region
  • you are searching for a well-founded, effective therapy to improve your sexual function

I suffer from lichen sclerosus. Could the O-Shot® help me?

Lichen sclerosus is a severe, chronic inflammation in the genital region that is often difficult to diagnose. Our experience administering the O-Shot® treatment has been positive; women with this disease are ideally suited to this form of treatment. Prolonged use of medications such as cortisone can result in even fatal side effects. They can cause a thinning of the skin in the affected areas, so that the anal or genital region becomes more sensitive, irritated and reddened. This affects the mucous membranes, which results in considerable pain. PRP, the substance used in the O-Shot®, contains healing factors that combat the cause of lichen sclerosus. Our clinic’s experience has shown that the O-Shot® treatment can be used in a targeted manner to treat lichen sclerosus and achieve lasting results. We recommend having the injection administered on a regular basis to support long-lasting healing.

What does the O-Shot® treatment involve?

Here at the prevention-center in Zurich, we administer the O-Shot® on an outpatient basis. No special preparation or aftercare is required from our clients. Before collecting some blood from you and administering the injection, Dr Köhler will explain the entire treatment procedure to you in detail. Once all of your queries have been cleared up, we can extract the quantity of blood required and prepare it for injection. We also apply a numbing cream so that you will hardly feel anything of the injection. As soon as this has taken effect, we can inject the regenerative growth factors in the treatment area. Thanks to our state-of-the-art technical equipment, we can also administer short-term sedative for clients who would prefer a stronger anaesthetic. The individual treatment steps only take a few minutes; you should allow around an hour for the entire treatment at our clinic.

How can I pay for an O-Shot®? Will my health insurance provider cover the costs?

At our clinic, we accept both cash and card payments. In most cases, health insurance providers do not cover the costs.

Is the O-Shot® a painful procedure?

At the prevention-center in Zurich, we have many years of experience administering treatment that by far surpasses the capacities of conventional anaesthesia. As a rule, our clients feel comfortable throughout the treatment and do not complain of any pain. We apply a numbing cream that desensitises the treatment area. We can also administer the injection under sedation for clients who are particularly sensitive or who feel nervous about the procedure. The numbing effect of the anaesthetic cream usually lasts for up to an hour after the injection.

What are the potential side effects of an O-Shot® treatment?

To date, we do not know of any side effects of the O-Shot® therapy. The injection is considered very safe; on rare occasions, clients may experience minimal redness, swelling or bruising for a short time around the puncture sites. If you experience after-bleeding, we will provide you with a panty liner. There are no known lasting side effects.

Will I be able to return to work and exercise after the O-Shot®?

Autohaemotherapy is a very delicate procedure that does not require any significant aftercare. Our clients usually feel well after the injection and can return to work or partake in exercise on the same day. You should wait until the effects of the anaesthetic cream have worn off before engaging in sexual activity.

How will I feel immediately after the O-Shot® treatment?

Our clients usually feel well immediately after the treatment. Swelling may develop temporarily around the injection site; if it does, the area will also be particularly sensitive. While this heightened sensitivity may linger in the days that follow, it is not usually considered unpleasant.

Will I need to come to check-ups?

At our clinic, we do not require clients to attend check-up appointments. However, as we will be keen to hear about the success of your treatment, we will schedule a telephone call for around 8 weeks after the injection. This follow-up telephone consultation is free of charge for you.

When will I be able to feel the initial results of the O-Shot®?

Generally speaking, our clients report that they can feel the initial changes from the O-Shot® just a few days after it is administered. Nevertheless, it takes a few weeks for the injected material to stimulate the body’s in-built regenerative functions and take full effect.

How long do the effects of the O-Shot® last?

Exactly how long the results of the O-Shot® will last depends on the individual and their specific issues that the therapy aims to treat. We strive to achieve particularly long-lasting results. If you experience diminished sensitivity following the treatment, the O-Shot® can be administered again without any issues. In our experience, however, our clients can expect the results to last for around 2 years.

Why have I only heard of the O-Shot® recently?

In medicine, it often takes a long time for new therapeutic procedures to become established. This is due to the safety requirements, which is our top priority. The topic of PRP has already been the subject of research for more than 50 years. Following a lengthy development phase and numerous studies, the O-Shot® can now be used in the field of cosmetic surgery as a safe and effective treatment. Despite this, when selecting a practitioner to perform the treatment, it is essential to select an experienced cosmetic surgeon who has worked with such innovative procedures for many years.

Can the O-Shot® be administered to pregnant women?

Even though the O-Shot® represents a highly safe procedure, we advise pregnant women against such treatments. The health of a mother and her child always takes priority and should not be risked under any circumstances. At our clinic, we also refuse to provide treatments to breastfeeding mothers.

Can an O-Shot® be administered during a period?

Generally speaking, an O-Shot® can be administered at any time. However, women are sometimes more sensitive to pain during their period – and, with this in mind, we would not recommend that women on their period undergo the treatment.

How long after an operation should I wait before having the O-Shot®?

Following a treatment, it is generally advisable to wait awhile before undergoing other procedures. With this in mind, we recommend waiting around four weeks after the surgery before undergoing an O-Shot® treatment.
