Sexual Rejuvenation Therapy
Urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and even reduced sexual responsiveness are frequent complaints of women who are past their childbearing years or are going through menopause.
The O-Shot® is a revolutionary vaginal rejuvenating treatment that addresses all of these concerns. O-Shot® uses growth factors from blood plasma called PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to alleviate stress incontinence, dryness and sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty reaching orgasm). This safe, nonsurgical procedure actually utilizes growth factors from your own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation and activate the “Orgasm System.”
If you have any of the following symptoms the O-Shot® can help you.
- Urinary leakage when you jump, laugh, cough, or sneeze. Also leakage from the strong urgency of urination.
- Low Libido (low sex drive)
- Difficulty reaching orgasm
- Painful intercourse
- Chronic pain from a history of vaginal childbirth (episiotomy scars)
How does the O-Shot® work?
The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets are separated and concentrated. The PRP that contains growth factors 3 that are extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, and patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.
If you are seeking solutions to urinary incontinence, the O-Shot®, in conjunction with pelvic therapy, has been proven to be effective for treating both urinary incontinence and stress incontinence, and it can bring women relief for the long term.
The O-Shot: What You Need to Know
The O-shot is autologous, meaning it uses the patient’s own blood products. Using PRP technology, growth factors and plasma are obtained from a small amount of blood. This same sample, once prepared, is the source of the injection. Though there are small risks to removal and centrifuge processes, the overall procedure and it risks are very low. Put simply, the process uses your own blood to rejuvenate the area.
The entire procedure takes under an hour from start to finish and uses advanced technology to facilitate the process. Appointments consist of patient preparation and processing the patient’s blood within a centrifuge in order to extract the growth factors, which are then injected into the desired area.
While the O-Shot and other growth factor injections are not FDA-approved, they are well-known and well-documented techniques used in a variety of fields for their remarkable effectiveness. Growth factor injections are neither approved nor forbidden by the FDA, as they consist of the patient’s own blood rather than a drug. However, the FDA has approved growth factor harvesting kits, which are used in the O-Shot procedure.
A large number of women have seen noticeable improvement if not eradication of urinary incontinence related to urge or stress. In conjunction with pelvic floor exercises, the O-Shot can cause significant improvement in regards to urinary incontinence.

The introduction of this procedure was in 2013 by Dr. Charles Runels. The Google Scholar publication can be found here published an article Other review articles and research have documented its viability as a non-invasive means of treatment. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6451893/#!po=88.4615
While the O-Shot is mostly a standardized procedure, slight variances in how the shot is prepared and injected can change the final cost. However, most women can expect to pay between $1,500–$2,000 for their individual O-Shot. The only way to know what the final cost is to undergo a consultation to discuss specific desires and medical history. Patients are usually able to have their O-Shot during the same visit, which saves both time and money. Dr Bhatia offers an O-Shot package that reduces the price of an O-Shot even further.
