Can The O-Shot Help With Incontinence?

O shot1

Incontinence affects around 50% of women in the UK, but even with such a high number, many women still feel too embarrassed to speak about it and seek help.

And even though support is widely available, you might find that the idea of talking to your doctor about it is filling you with dread.

Elite Aesthetics specialises in women’s intimate health, and we’ve made it our mission to bring pioneering treatments to the UK designed to help treat conditions in new, innovative ways.

The O-Shot has been used in our clinic for years, and Dr Shirin is one of the UK’s leading practitioners. It is proven to help alleviate the symptoms of incontinence and can even provide some surprising extra benefits too!

If you want to find out what it is and how it can help overcome incontinence, then continue reading…

What Is The O Shot?

The O-Shot uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve collagen production in your vaginal tissue. PRP contains essential cell-regenerating growth factors that can help tighten vaginal laxity to help reduce problems with urinary incontinence.

The procedure works by taking a small amount of your blood, which is spun at a high frequency within a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. Your doctor will inject this PRP into your desired treatment area. This might sound painful, but the whole procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing.

Women who have had the O-Shot report a dramatic decrease in their urinary incontinence symptoms. The results can last up to 12 months and can be easily repeated if needed.

How The O-Shot Helps With Incontinence

There are several types of incontinence, including:

  • Stress incontinence – This type of incontinence happens when there is pressure on the bladder, such as when you cough, sneeze, or laugh. It can also occur when exercising or lifting something heavy.
  • Urge incontinence – This is when you have a sudden need to go to the toilet, often followed by an involuntary loss of urine. This kind of incontinence could be the result of something minor, like an infection, or a more severe condition, such as diabetes.
  • Overflow incontinence – Also known as chronic urinary retention, is when you need to go to the toilet frequently but are unable to fully empty your bladder, this causes frequent leaking.
  • Functional incontinence  – If you have a physical or mental impairment, or are suffering from mental confusion, it might prevent you from making it to the toilet in time. For example, if you suffer from severe arthritis, this might prevent you from unbuttoning your clothes quickly enough.

Causes can include:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Ageing 
  • Menopause
  • Medication
  • Medical conditions

The O-Shot helps by encouraging new, rejuvenated tissue growth in the vaginal walls. This provides support for the bladder and urethra, giving women more control and helping to ease the symptoms of incontinence.

What Are The Benefits Of The O-Shot?

As well as helping to alleviate incontinence, the O-Shot provides other benefits too, such as:

  • Vaginal lubrication
  • Tighter vaginal opening
  • Heightened orgasm
  • Increased libido

Many women going through hormonal changes, such as menopause, have found the O-Shot helped them regain their sex lives and helped them start feeling more like themselves again. The effects aren’t just physical; the positive results encourage better mental health and overall happiness, too. 

Are There Other Treatments For Incontinence?

There are other effective treatments for incontinence, such as:

Emsella

The Emsella chair is a revolutionary treatment that helps you complete pelvic floor exercises comfortably and effectively. 

Strengthening your pelvic floor improves pelvic floor muscles, and each 28-minute session is the equivalent of 11,000 pelvic floor tenses – kegels – with 6 treatments recommended as a minimum. 

It works by using electromagnetic technology to stimulate pelvic floor muscles. The device looks just like a chair, and during the procedure, you sit, fully clothed, on the chair whilst the electromagnets work their magic. 

The results of the Emsella chair can last up to 12 months but can be extended with top-up treatments if needed. 

Ultra Femme 360

The Ultra Femme 360 is a revolutionary treatment that can help with urinary incontinence as well as provide complete vaginal rejuvenation, such as labial remodelling and vaginal tightening. 

The Ultra Femme 360 has a proven track record in tightening the vaginal canal and opening, improving its appearance, as well as increasing orgasms and reducing vaginal dryness.

It uses an FDA-approved radiofrequency device, similar to a speculum (commonly used when you get a smear test) but smaller and more comfortable. 

The tip is moved along the whole length of the vaginal canal towards the cervix and back towards the opening. The small band at the end of the device emits radiofrequency waves, which painlessly penetrate deeply into your tissue whilst gently elevating the temperature of the cells to over 40°C. This stimulates new collagen production, improving blood flow and elasticity.

What Next?

Incontinence needn’t be an embarrassing secret. It is a common condition that thousands of other women are going through. And the good news is that there are so many easy and painless treatments available.

All the treatments mentioned are available at Elite Aesthetics, and the O-Shot, in particular, has proven success at treating incontinence, providing long-term, lasting results.

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.

 

HV

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.

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.
