I received the "o" shot today 6/27/16. How long should I wait to begin Thermiva treatments?

No need to wait
You can do both on the same day. Don't worry, the heat will not affect the results. You hopefully will be happy with the results.
Timing of Treatments Depends on Your Goals
When to add O-Shot into your Thermiva treatments depends on your individual case and desires. Our practice is to perform the O-shot at the second Thermiva treatment (we perform 3 ThermiVa treatments 1 month apart). This protocol allows the patient’s tissues to respond to the thermal effects of ThermiVa and to understand the how the results of ThermiVa differ from those of the O-shot. At the second visit, we perform the Thermiva treatment first and then apply a topical numbing cream before performing the O-Shot. The numbing cream is very effective and the injection is essentially painless. At the third visit we evaluate response to treatment and perform the last ThermiVa treatment. Patients return one month after the last treatment to evaluate progress. Good luck!
Thermiva and the O-Shot
The O-shot can be performed on the same day as your ThermiVa treatment. In my office we apply additional lidocaine to the clitoris first, and then do the ThermiVa treatment—allowing an additional 30 minutes for the area to numb prior to the injection. Cheers!

The O shot can be performed immediately after the ThermiVa or any time that's convenient to you. Afterwards many women report better sexual experience and urinary control.
No problem on the ThermiVA and the O-shot. In fact many of the ThermiVA doctors have been treating patients with the ThermiVA and the O-shot on the same day.
The way it is done in my office is the blood is drawn before the start of the treatment and the numbing cream is placed on the clitoris, that way the PRP and the patient is ready for the O-shot once the ThermiVa treatment is complete. We have seen much improved results with sexual satisfaction and improvement in stress incontinence with the Thermi-O.
ThermiVA and O shot timing
Though there have been no documented scientific studies done utilizing PRP
with any of these modalities, many providers are combining these treatments
with synergistic effects. Both procedures are working by increasing
neovascularization and collagenases. If you have already had your O shot
I would recommend waiting 3-5 days before the ThermiVA just to ensure no
injection site reaction. At future appointments you could do the ThermiVa first
immediately followed by the O shot. Good luck!!

ThermiVa and O-Shot are natural partners
ThermiVa after O shot?
That being said, the puncture marks from the O shot are closed in 48-72hrs so risk for infection with manipulation with thermiVa is low after this time frame. The product it absorbed and incorporated in this time frame as well and since the transcutaneous probe only has so much penetration to deeper layers, I would think that after this time frame, you should be fine. I would recommend waiting a week from Oshot until your ThermiVa to be safe, but it should be fine to do them in succession with little consequence and additive effect.
Best of luck!
