Women have given birth or are experiencing significant changes in their sexual health are great candidates for this injection. What’s more, all of our practitioners have been trained in Beverly Hills by Sylvia Silvestri, RN regarding the O Shot procedure.

Through stimulating the growth factors in your plasma to rejuvenate the vagina, we are able to activate localized stem cells.
