Struggles and Changes in Your Intimate Health? You are Not Alone...

struggles and changes in your intimate health blog

Let’s talk about it! That thing, funny business, the birds and the bees... Whatever you like to call it, there’s one thing we can all agree on and that’s as we women age, our natural lubrication starts to decrease and pain and discomfort during intercourse can proportionately increase. Lucky for you, at Pure Skin, we offer an incredible laser solution, and you couldn’t be in better hands than with our board-certified Nurse Practitioner Shelly Botsford who has spent her career focused specifically on women’s health concerns and how to alleviate some of the common conditions we all experience as we age.

DiVa® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation - Sex should be enjoyable even as we age. A natural part of the feminine aging process is drying of our natural lubricant and a loss of elasticity and function of the vaginal wall. What this translates to for us women is painful intercourse, dryness, vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, and other related changes that compromise our ability to enjoy sex and control our bodily functions. With the DiVa Laser Treatment, we utilize a dual laser platform to increase the tightness and thickness of the internal vaginal walls, ease the dryness that often accompanies menopause and improve overall elasticity. How does it work? The device uses hybrid fractional laser technology to first coat the vaginal wall with healthy, refreshed tissue and next heat the deeper tissue layers to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the treated area. This in turn gives us the smoothed, enhanced lubrication we’re looking for, with the relief from urinary incontinence and tightening effect from collagen stimulation. Because this is a customizable treatment, we are able to apply exactly the strength of treatment needed to get you the results you’re looking for, all in a minimally invasive (downtime free!) treatment that lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes. During your initial consult, NP Shelly will get a health history and discuss your main concerns. An examination is then performed to assure you are a good candidate for DiVa treatment, and if so, we will schedule a series of 3 treatments completed one month apart. Post-treatment, you will typically start to feel some relief within the first 2-3 weeks, only improving thereafter. After optimal results have been achieved, we simply recommend yearly maintenance treatments to keep your results in effect. To enhance results even further, Shelly is also able to incorporate the use of your own platelet-rich plasma and take advantage of growth factors to really speed up the body’s natural collagen production and get you results in record time.

Our Practitioner Shelly Botsford - On to the woman with the magic hands herself, Nurse Practitioner Shelly Botsford! Shelly has dedicated her professional career to the field of OB/GYN and has heard the frustrations from her female patients while working at the Center for Women in Bismarck for the 8 years prior to opening Pure Skin. Shelly’s patients were having problems with low sex drive, urinary leakage and they were also seeing changes in their skin. She felt that her patients didn’t know the options available to them and she wanted to change that. It was during this time that she decided to focus on these issues when she opened her own practice, Pure Skin Aesthetic and Laser Center. Shelly recently completed an advanced preceptorship with Dr. Peter Castillo in Los Gatos, California, a gynecologist who specializes in cosmetic gynecology and urology. Her training with Dr. Castillo focused more intensely on the DiVa Laser Treatment, as Shelly is always eager to advance her knowledge in the use of all of her offerings at Pure Skin, especially when it means she can free her patients from the frustrations of low sex drive, uncomfortable intercourse, and embarrassing urinary leakage.

Simply put, you deserve a good sex life, and you deserve to be able to say that your vaginal lubrication matches that of your 20-year-old self. It’s as simple as calling for your consultation with Shelly and believe us when we say that nothing gives her greater pleasure than showing you how enjoyable life can be after diVa. Call us today for your discrete consult where we’ll help you with the next steps so you can join the club of post-menopausal women who are loving their sex lives! 701-751-4140
