Women may not talk about it as much as men, but sexual wellness is an important part of your overall health. If you’re struggling with low libido or vaginal dryness because of hormonal changes related to menopause, you may want to consider vaginal revitalization. At Modern Aesthetica in Santa Monica, California, Daniel Moghadam, MD, and the skilled team offer the O-Shot®, an innovative injection that can revitalize vaginal tissue to improve or enhance sexual health.

Vaginal childbirth, hormonal changes, and age-related muscle changes lead to vaginal laxity, or loose vaginal tissues.
Women can also develop vaginal problems after menopause due to a decline in estrogen that can cause their vaginal tissues to become dry, thin, and less elastic. This condition, sometimes called vaginal atrophy, affects about half of all postmenopausal women.
The O-Shot is a nonsurgical treatment option for vaginal revitalization. The O-Shot contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of platelets. The team at Modern Aesthetica underwent specialized training to be able to provide the O-Shot to you.
You may be familiar with the role platelets play in helping to stop the bleeding after a cut, but your platelets also contain specialized cells and growth factors that your body uses to help regenerate new cells and repair tissue damage.
When injected into your vaginal tissue, the PRP in the O-Shot accelerates healing and the regeneration of new, healthier vaginal tissue. The healing properties also help improve blood circulation and increase collagen production, which is the protein in your vaginal tissue that provides strength and elasticity.
The team at Modern Aesthetica determines if you’re a good candidate for vaginal revitalization during a consultation. You may want to consider scheduling an appointment if you suffer from:
Vaginal revitalization with the O-Shot may also be used as a treatment for lichen sclerosis, which is a condition that causes the development of patchy, thin white skin around the genital area.
Although results vary from woman-to-woman, the O-Shot offers many benefits. After receiving their injection, many women report:
Some women also find that vaginal revitalization helps to decrease urinary and fecal incontinence.
The team at Modern Aesthetica performs the O-Shot injection at the office. Before treatment begins, Dr. Moghadam applies a numbing cream to your vaginal tissue and arm to minimize any discomfort. Then, he draws a sample of blood from your arm to create the PRP.
Once your injection is ready, Dr. Moghadam injects the PRP into your clitoris and upper part of your vagina. There’s no downtime following your injection, and the team provides specific instructions on when you can resume sexual activity.
