There is typically minimal discomfort with the O-Shot procedure. The areas are numbed with a potent numbing cream left in place for 20 minutes prior to the procedure. An ice pack is also applied. I perform a nerve block with Lidocaine with a very fine needle which numbs the clitoris. Most patients rate their discomfort as a 1 or 2 on a pain scale of 10.
You will receive a personalized in-depth consultation with Dr Mccain to make sure this procedure is right for you and meets your needs and goals. The consultation fee is $200 and is credited back if you proceed with the O-Shot (or any other procedure).
The O-Shot can be combined with the MonaLisaTouch Vaginal LASER which consists of 3 treatments, 6-weeks apart and typically a yearly boost. These two procedures complement each other allowing for maximum benefit. The O-Shot is half-price when combined with the MonaLisaTouch procedure.
Platelets and other components in human blood migrate to a site of injury. Platelets are known to release a variety of growth factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets at the site of injury, physicians have the potential to enhance the body’s natural capacity for healing. We use the SELPHYL system to create our PRP, which provides the highest quality PRP called a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix.
20cc of your blood is obtained with a small Butterfly needle. The blood is then placed into the patented SELPHYL tube which has a gel gradient that separates out the white and red blood cells from the plasma, this is then spun for 6 minutes in a centrifuge. The PRP is then created and should have the color of straw. Your PRP is then placed in another tube which contains Calcium Chloride that activates the healing cascade. 20cc of blood typically yields about 6cc of PRP.
