My Women's Center focuses on Gynecology (and Urogynecology), enabling them to stay abreast of the latest advances and technologies in the field. They treat their patients with the highest respect and strive to create an environment of confidence and trust.

The O-shot is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedure offered at My Women's Center. The O-shot is the injection of platelet rich plasma into the clitoris and upper vaginal wall. The PRP is obtained from the patient's blood and has many regenerative properties. When injected into these tissues, it may work to improve sexual function and bladder control. It also works well with the other energy treatments for this area, such as MLT and FormaV. 

The Mona Lisa Touch (MLT) is a fractional CO2 laser made specifically to treat the vaginal and vulnar tissues. It was FDA approved in December 2014 for treatment of vaginal atrophy. The laser creates micro-injuries in the treated skin which elicits a healing response that improves the feel, look and function of this area.

Votiva is a versatile radio-frequency workstation for women’s health and wellness, combining gentle volumetric heating with fractional coagulation of tissue.  FormaV is the hand piece that allows delivery of bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vagina and vulva. RF heats the deeper tissues to stimulate collagen and elastin to increase support, tighten tissues and increase the plumpness of the tissues.  This is very effective for urinary incontinence and vaginal tightening.

You may be a canidate for O-Shot, Laser or RF Treatments if you experience any of the following:

  • Painful sex
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Night time urination
  • Less sensation/difficulty with orgasm
  • Frequent bladder infections
  • Frequent vaginal infections
  • Urgency or frequency of urination
  • Vaginal laxity/prolapse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sagging skin
  • Decreased libido
  • Breast cancer history
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Lichen sclerosis
  • Lichen planus
  • Scarring/strictures/fused tissue
