What Is The O-Shot and What Does It Do?

Many women face common frustrations with their intimate health, such as vaginal dryness, decreased sensitivity, painful sex, and urinary issues. 

These affect not only physical well-being, but also self-confidence and relationships. It doesn’t matter how common these conditions are; many women still feel awkward talking about it, and they often don’t realise that there’s a simple solution available. 

That solution is a groundbreaking non-invasive treatment called the O-Shot. 

But what is the O-Shot? And what makes it so groundbreaking? 

This blog answers all the questions you might have, such as ‘what is O-Shot therapy?’, ‘What is an O-Shot treatment?’, and, most importantly, ‘What can it do for you?’

What is The O-Shot and What Does It Do?

The O-Shot is a non-surgical, minimally invasive injection procedure. It uses a revolutionary solution already used for wound healing and joint injuries: platelet-rich plasma (PRP). 

PRP is derived from your own blood and made into a serum. PRP injections revitalise your vagina by stimulating stem cells to produce new tissue. 

This includes collagen and fatty tissue, essential for structure and lubrication, along with nerve endings and blood vessels. This translates to thicker vaginal tissue, heightened sensitivity, and increased blood flow to erogenous zones, potentially improving your overall sexual experience.

The O-Shot: A Breakthrough In Intimate Health

This treatment can help women’s intimate health in a variety of different ways, helping with sexual function, especially post-menopause, as well as treating other gynaecological conditions. It can also improve the aesthetic of your vagina and vulva.

The O-Shot can help with the following:

Vaginal Dryness 

Dryness can cause sex to be very painful, and this treatment can help to stimulate the rejuvenation of the vaginal tissue. This rejuvenation causes an increase in natural lubrication, resulting in more enjoyable sexual intercourse.


Because PRP treatments promote new tissue growth, they can help to treat all types of incontinence, including stress and urge incontinence.

Painful Sex

PRP procedures help to enhance sexual function and reduce pain by rejuvenating the vaginal walls and increasing natural lubrication.

Low libido

This treatment improves sensitivity and heightens sensations during sexual stimulation. It is proven to increase your libido by increasing blood flow to the areas responsible for sexual pleasure, including the G-Spot.


This treatment increases blood flow to your vagina and thus increases sensitivity, making sex more heightened and enjoyable.

Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy makes your vaginal tissue thin, dry, and inflamed. The treatment can help to enhance sexual function and improve overall urinary health. 

PRP procedures start to work straight away after your treatment, and most patients will notice an improvement in their vaginal atrophy and overall sexual vitality within a few weeks. 

Vaginal Laxity

It can increase your production of collagen, and this turn can help tighten up the vaginal walls.

Lichen Sclerosus

Many Lichen Sclerosus sufferers have benefited from PRP treatments. By helping to heal the damaged tissue, PRP can provide significant relief from Lichen Sclerosus symptoms because it uses the incredible healing ability of your immune system to heal another area. 

You can read our patient Sam’s Lichen Sclerosus story here about how effective the O-Shot has been in treating her LS. 

What Is An O-Shot Treatment Like?

The O-Shot uses a fascinating process that harnesses your own blood’s potential for vaginal rejuvenation. 

Firstly, blood is taken so that your doctor can extract PRP; this process is like any blood test – blood will be drawn from your arm. The next step is to place your blood in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins it at very high speed. This rapid spinning separates the various components of your blood. 

During this separation, the platelets, rich in growth factors, are concentrated, creating a potent solution called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Think of it as a “wonder serum” packed with healing power.

The final step is the injection. Your extracted PRP will be strategically injected into specific areas of your vagina, including the entrance, upper wall, base of the clitoris, and the labia. This injection process aims to stimulate stem cells and potentially improve various aspects of sexual function.

Although this might sound painful, a numbing cream is applied to the vaginal walls, clitoris, and labia. This effective pain relief, combined with the use of a very fine needle and the expertise of Dr Shirin, makes this treatment more comfortable.

You might feel a little sore and experience some mild swelling after the procedure, but this should subside after 24-48 hours. 

Typically, you will start to notice your results after 3 weeks of your initial treatment, and results will steadily increase until about 3 months. It is at this point that you should start experiencing the full benefit.

These results can last up to a year and be topped up when needed.

Why Women Choose the O-Shot

This treatment is so popular because it is safe, natural, and has minimised risks compared to surgery or hormonal intervention.

It is incredibly empowering as it allows women to address embarrassing or taboo concerns.

Results are long-lasting and very versatile too, addressing a wide range of intimate health issues in one non-invasive treatment.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
