The O-shot is an innovative, nonsurgical procedure performed by the physician in the comfort of our office. The entire process takes approximately 30-40 minutes. There is minimal discomfort, no post-treatment restrictions, and no down-time.
After a thorough discussion about the procedure and what to expect, a small amount of blood is drawn from the arm. The blood is then placed in a machine that isolates the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The platelets are then activated with calcium, releasing a cascade of growth factors. Potent numbing cream is applied to the vaginal area where injections are to be placed. The doctor then uses a small needle to gently place the PRP into the appropriate sites. Your body does the rest! The platelet derived growth factors attract stem cells which stimulate healing to revitalize the tissue.

*Regarding lichen sclerosus, the PRP rejuvenation method has shown to be helpful. In reviewing biopsies of women before and after treatment with PRP, dermatopathologists determined that most women showed improvement in inflammation after treatment. These women also reported significant improvement in symptoms. Read the research paper here…
