What is a Fem-Shot?

The Fem-Shot helps women who experience decreased vaginal lubrication, pain during sex, a loose vaginal canal, and more. Along with these physical issues, a low sex drive can cause low self-esteem. To treat this the Fem-shot uses platelet-rich plasma injections to help stimulate growth factors and regeneration of tissue in the vaginal region.

Who is a Candidate for the Fem-shot?

Women who wish to get more frequent orgasms, less pain during sex, and help smooth out the labia. For women who wish for vaginal rejuvenation without surgery, the Fem-shot is a great option.

How is the Fem-shot Treatment Performed?

The Fem-shot uses plasma injections. This plasma is acquired from blood that is drawn from your body, typically from the arm. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge that separates platelets and plasma from the rest. The platelets are then injected into the treatment area. The plasma contains many growth factors and proteins that activate stem cells and cellular repair. Also, this helps with collagen production which further aids in tissue repair. The Fem-shot is done in-office with a numbing cream to minimize any pain or discomfort.
