Feel Comfortable with Intimacy Again
Has intimacy suffered from childbirth-related complications, aging or menopause? For many women, the most profound events in life can also cause significant changes to the pelvic floor muscles and other areas around the vagina. These issues are natural, but harm to the connective tissue and vaginal skin can lead to loss of sexual responsiveness, discomfort, and other unwanted side effects. This discomfort and dissatisfaction often contributes to a loss of self-esteem along with a lack of enjoyment in sexual activity. You no longer have to suffer in silence. Empower yourself with an intimate makeover. You deserve it!
All women deserve a safe space where they can discuss all their questions about their health, even the questions they might not feel comfortable discussing with their primary care provider.

Each intimate makeover is customized for each patient’s unique circumstances. Your specific issues and concerns will guide the design of your intimate makeover. An intimate makeover can offer two types of benefits: functional and aesthetic. Functional benefits can include treatments for pelvic floor disorder, repairing tears in vaginal tissue, correcting urinary incontinence, and more. Aesthetic benefits might include minimally invasive procedures to the labia minora and labia majora to achieve your desired appearance.

Intimate Makeover Procedures
DiVa by Sciton has revolutionized the field of vaginal rejuvenation by offering a minimally invasive solution to several issues. DiVa is a hybrid fractional laser fine-tuned for use on the vagina. DiVa resurfaces the interior vaginal walls. After the resurfacing your body will heal the vaginal tissue, replacing the damaged outer layer with fresh, new skin. This activates the body’s natural healing response and helps restore functionality. Medical research found lasers to be a sound treatment for stress urinary incontinence as well.
Diva Tyte by Sciton is an infrared, non-ablative laser that uses light and heat to gently massage the dermal layer of the vagina. Diva Tyte works on the external labia and helps improve skin laxity and skin tone of the external labia. It can smooth and tighten the exterior skin as well as restore skin texture. Scientific studies find lasers to be a great option for treating vaginal laxity and smoothness.
A labiaplasty is performed on the labia minora and labia majora, the inner and outer “lips” of the vagina. Labiaplasties can emphasize sculpting the aesthetics that a patient desires, be it symmetry or achieving a “tucked in” appearance. Also, some patients request a labiaplasty to fix issues of irritation and discomfort that arise after childbirth or aging.
A vaginoplasty focuses on the interior of the vagina. This differs from a labiaplasty which only focuses on the outer skin of the labia majora and labia minora. A vaginoplasty can heal vaginal tissue and resolve issues of vaginal laxity. Vaginoplasties are performed to address many issues that result from childbirth or aging.
The perineum lies between the vagina and the rectum. It’s an important node of the pelvic floor muscles. Often during childbirth, the perineal body may tear during delivery or the birthing doctor will make an incision through the perineal body called an episiotomy. This will often leave the vagina lax with less support due to the damaged perineal body. A perineoplasty restores the support of the vagina and rectum. A perineoplasty should be performed by a surgeon that specializes in female pelvic anatomy as it is a sensitive and important area for the support and sexual satisfaction.
An O-shot is a treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma to treat urinary incontinence and discomfort during sexual activities. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is harvested from a patient’s own blood. Then the solution is purified and prepared for injection. Growth factors released by the shot of PRP provides a boost in sensation and functionality by revitalizing your tissue, nerve cells, and vascular structures.
Depending on the suite of procedures you select, recovery time can vary. Make sure to follow all Dr. Castillo’s recommendations and instructions to protect your results.

“My story is like most women over fifty, our bodies lose shape, gravity takes over and the daily wear and tear of periods, childbirth and sex can make our vaginas look less than desirable. And let’s not forget my favorite—stress incontinence.
Dr Castillo suggested the diVa laser treatments along with hormone therapy to jump start my aging mind and body..miraculously it worked. Not only did I feel more alive, but I started to notice a big difference in my skin, energy level and sex drive…my vagina area felt and looked considerably better, but I wanted more…one Labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction please.
