You may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation!

5 Million women worldwide have improvement in their feminine health with the Juliet™ Intimate Laser.

Childbirth, menopause, certain skin conditions (vulvar dystrophy, lichen sclerosis), cancer treatment, and aging can cause thinning of the vagina (vaginal atrophy).

Vaginal atrophy can lead to vaginal dryness, painful sex (dyspareunia), vaginal irritation, vaginal burning, and skin discoloration of the vulva with age spots or brown spots. Other symptoms such as urinary incontinence have been successfully treated with laser therapy.

If you cannot use traditional hormone therapies, you don’t respond to estrogen treatment, or if a history of breast cancer has made it difficult for you to use other therapy methods, the Juliet™ Laser may be the answer for you.

The laser energy painlessly stimulates collagen production in the vaginal muscles and tissues to tighten and revitalize the area. It is a drug-free, non-hormonal office treatment with no downtime. Over the following weeks and months, your results will improve as collagen production increases and your vaginal tissues become stronger.

Actual Patient Review – “After two weeks, I have already noticed positive changes. Most importantly, I am not afraid to cough or sneeze. No more bladder leakage. I feel like I’m 25, but I am 54 and have had two kids. I can also say my husband has noticed the difference.”

Embrace your health and enjoy revived femininity.

About 4 in 10 women have problems with sex at some point during their lives. Pain during sex may be a sign of a gynecologic problem, such as ovarian cysts or endometriosis. It may also be caused by problems with sexual response, such as a lack of desire (the feeling of wanting to have sex) or a lack of arousal (the physical and emotional changes that occur in the body as a result of sexual stimulation).

What causes sexual problems in women?

Some common causes of sexual problems in women include the following:

Hormonal changes - such as during pregnancy, perimenopause, or menopause

Cancer treatments and their side effects

Some illnesses and medications

Relationship problems with your partner

Past negative experiences

Depression, anxiety, or stress

What types of sexual problems affect women?

“Female sexual dysfunction” is a general term for a problem with sex. The problem can be a lack of interest in sex. It also can be a lack of response to sexual activity. Sexual problems fall into four groups, which often overlap:

Desire and arousal problems

Orgasmic problems

Sexual pain

Sexual problems caused by medication or substances

In addition to vaccination, regular screening and treatment of pre-cancerous lesions protects from cancer.

The uterine cervix is the lowest portion of a woman's uterus (womb), connecting the uterus with the vagina.

Cervical cancer occurs when the cells of the cervix grow abnormally and invade other tissues and organs of the body. When it is invasive, this cancer affects the deeper tissues of the cervix and may have spread to other parts of the body (metastasis), most notably the lungs, liver, bladder, vagina, and rectum.

However, cervical cancer is slow-growing, so its progression through precancerous changes provides opportunities for prevention, early detection, and treatment. Better means of detection have meant a decline in cervical cancer in the U.S. over the decades.

Most women diagnosed with precancerous changes in the cervix are in their 20s and 30s, but the average age of women when they are diagnosed with cervical cancer is the mid 50s. This difference in the age at which precancerous changes are most frequently diagnosed and the age at which cancer is diagnosed highlights the slow progression of this disease and the reason why it can be prevented if adequate steps are taken.

Causes of Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer begins with abnormal changes in the cervical tissue. The risk of developing these abnormal changes is associated with infection with human papillomavirus (HPV). In addition, early sexual contact, multiple sexual partners, and taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills) increase the risk of cervical cancer because they lead to greater exposure to HPV.

Forms of HPV, a virus whose different types cause skin warts, genital warts, and other abnormal skin disorders, have been shown to lead to many of the changes in cervical cells that may eventually lead to cancer. Certain types of HPV have also been linked to cancers involving the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, tongue, and tonsils. Genetic material that comes from certain forms of HPV (high-risk subtypes) has been found in cervical tissues that show cancerous or precancerous changes.
