What is the O-Shot®?
Dr. Rodgers and her team strive to take care of the woman as a “whole person”, not just as a plastic surgery patient. Our office aims to provide the best in skin care, surgical rejuvenation of the body and face and intimate sexual wellness. We are pleased to offer the O-Shot® which can help women reinvigorate and enhance a healthy and enjoyable sex life. 1 in 20 women complain of difficulty with sexual arousal and trouble in achieving consistent orgasms. This procedure is non-surgical and utilizes natural growth factors extracted from your own blood. Once these factors are harvested and prepared in a sterile manner, they are injected directly into the side of the clitoris and vaginal wall. Growth factors injected in this manner have been found to stimulate collagen growth and improve overall sexual arousal. An added benefit is improvement in urinary incontinence as well.
Why Do Women Suffer from Decreased Response and Pleasure?
Age and menopause-related hormonal changes significantly result in a decrease in sexual arousal for many women. This condition unfortunately, in some cases, lessens their satisfaction with their partner due to lack of sexual enjoyment and difficulty reaching orgasm. Lower estrogen levels secondary to menopause result in physical changes that lead to problems including vaginal atrophy and dryness. A decline in collagen production and blood supply decrease sensitivity in the clitoris. Studies have shown that women between 45 and 65 have the most difficulty achieving orgasm. Our team is working hard to break that stigma and help women of all ages achieve the healthy sex life they deserve.

How does new tissue grow?
Extra calcium chloride added to the PRP helps the body to release 7 different types of growth factors that trigger younger tissue to form. This is then injected into the clitoris and the vaginal wall to stimulate healthier tissue in both areas.
Why Should I Consider This?
This procedure has been found to help women improve their overall sexual function. It can boost sexual desire and enjoyment by increasing clitoral and vaginal sensitivity. Additional collagen helps create more intense and frequent orgasms. Injections along the vaginal wall help support the lower end of the urethra and can help improve urinary incontinence and vaginal lubrication. It can decrease painful intercourse which is beneficial to both parties.
