diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy

October 26th, 2018

From the first signs of puberty to childbirth and menopause, women’s bodies are constantly changing. Some of these changes are mechanical and some are hormonal. Although the body has ways of naturally healing, a decline in vaginal health isn’t uncommon – especially after childbirth, menopause, a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or breast-feeding. Reverse the mechanical and hormonal effects and improve your vaginal health with the benefits of diVa laser vaginal therapy.

 

What is diVa vaginal therapy?

The diVa laser was developed by Sciton® to safely and effectively heal the stretching of the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues caused by childbirth, as well as address the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal area from menopause, hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or other issues.
The diVa vaginal therapy treatment takes about three to five minutes per procedure and requires no downtime afterward. It is recommended that women receive three procedures, scheduled four to six weeks apart. No surgery or anesthesia is required, and the procedure is customizable to your specific needs.

Benefits of diVa vaginal therapy

Using two lasers, diVa uses heat to resurface tissue. The heat from the first laser causes a natural thermal response that repairs the surface tissue by regenerating new glycogen cells, which are necessary for proper lubrication. The second laser treats the deeper vaginal tissue through heat to stimulate collagen by coagulation. The addition of collagen increases the fullness of the tissue and thickens the vaginal walls. This tightens the vagina and helps support control of the bladder and urethra.

This type of laser vaginal therapy allows women to immediately return to their normal daily routines and experience minimal side effects with maximum benefits. Patients report minimal to little discomfort and 98 percent of patients reported that their expectations were met. Some spotting and mild cramping may occur post-treatment, and other than refraining from sex for up to 48 hours, there are no restrictions for what you can do after a procedure.

If you’re experiencing pain during sex, lack of lubrication, vaginal atrophy, bladder control issues, vaginal laxity, or any other related vaginal mechanical or hormonal issues, diVa Laser Therapy might be the answer.

At Belladerm, we LOVE rolling out new products to you and this one is sure to get a lot of buzz.  SkinMedica just launched an amazing new duo called The LUMIVIVE™ System.

Simply add this to any skincare routine that you already have in place. It is designed for ALL skin types. Defend from environmental aggressors during the day with LUMIVIVE™ Day Damage Defense Serum and revitalize and detoxify at night while you rest with Night Revitalize Repair Complex.

Four Things to do to Combat Summer Sun Damage

September 4th, 2018

The end of summer is always bittersweet as we think about putting away our summer clothes and preparing for the season ahead. With back to school messages everywhere we look, it reminds us that fall is a time to begin a new routine. It is time to put you first. Changing your skincare regime and addressing sun damage should be a priority. Here are four ways to combat summer sun damage:

1.    Halo Treatment- Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser. Halo is the world’s first and only tunable hybrid fractional laser, combining non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass to maximize results and control downtime. Halo gives you the results you want without the downtime you would expect. What is so amazing about the Halo is that you will get the benefits of three lasers in one treatment! If you want to shrink facial pores, fade brown spots, diminish facial veins and redness as well as combat fine lines and wrinkles, then the Halo is perfect for you!

2.    BBL Broadband Light- If age spots and/or rosacea are your main concern, then BBL may be perfect for you. Broadband Light (BBL) is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets a new standard in treating skin conditions. The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This corrective process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking.

3.    Chemical peelsThis treatment effectively treats a host of skin problems including acne, discolorations and fine lines and wrinkles. A chemical solution is applied to the face, which removes the damaged outer layer of skin and unveils softer, smoother, more radiant skin. Most procedures take less than an hour to perform, with minimal discomfort during the treatment. There are a variety of chemical peels offered today and we will work with you to determine the best peel for you. We recommend a series of at least three for best results.

4.  A good home skincare regime- What you do every morning and evening will make a significant difference in the appearance and condition of your skin. At Belladerm, we carry nothing but the best products, such as SkinMedica and IS Clinical.  Skin Medica’s entire aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin’s own healing abilities.  To learn more about our products go here: https://www.belladermmedspa.com/products

Why Summer is a Great Time for Fillers and Botox

July 10th, 2018

 

Sweet summertime. Beauty is all around with flowers blooming and gorgeous colors painted across the sunset skies. This time of year just inspires us to focus on not only the beauty all around in nature but also in our appearance.  It’s a perfect time to come to Belladerm MedSpa for fillers and Botox!  Why? Because there is no downtime!  You can get right back to enjoying the things you love to do outdoors!  Summer really is ideal for fillers and Botox because unlike many other services, they do not restrict you from enjoying the great outdoors. Treatments using lasers/IPL, BBL and chemical peels DO require that you avoid sun exposure after treatment.

A Reason to Celebrate

You will find so many gatherings and reasons to celebrate in the months of June, July and August. All of them will give you reasons to want to look your absolute best. That is why we recommend fillers and Botox to achieve a wrinkle free, youthful appearance.  Fillers and Botox are quick and easy treatments with BIG results!  Because people are more mobile during the summer means they are more seen! You will undoubtedly see people you haven’t seen for awhile and/or meet new acquaintances at the gathering such as weddings and other summer celebrations.  Likewise, summer is typically when you’ll be invited back for your class reunion, where EVERYONE always strives to look their best.

Another great thing about fillers and Botox is that you will enjoy immediate results! There is no waiting time for it to kick in and no down time where you have to hide out in recovery, so getting a filler treatment won’t keep you from the excitement and celebration. Why not put your best face forward and get in for your fillers and Botox BEFORE the big summer events!

Save on Filler at Belladerm 

We are offering an awesome promotion through the month of August on Juvederm XL filler. BUY 2 Syringes and GET 1 FREE!  This is one of the most popular choices for injectable fillers. If you are not very familiar with what a filler is or what it does, let’s go over the basics. Fillers help reverse the changes associated with aging by utilizing hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of facial lines, folds – like the smile lines (we call parentheses) that form around your mouth. It smooths wrinkles, restores volume and enhances facial features.

What the Liquid Face Lift can do for you:

  • Fill in wrinkles and fold, such as smile lines and marionette lines
  • Smooth out frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines
  • Enhance and lift cheeks
  • Restore volume to flattening and sagging areas
  • Lift eyebrows up to their youthful position
  • Hide bags under eyes
  • Reduce jowls and create a straighter jaw line
  • Plump lips and smooth out lip wrinkles
  • Lift up sagging corners of the mouth

We Are Here to Help

Remember, consultations at Belladerm are ALWAYS free. We love spending time educating patients on how each service works and might meet their needs. Please call us at 763-494-9905 to chat or schedule a consultation. Fillers have consistently been gaining popularity year after year and they produce beautiful results. We love to see what it does for patients when they see a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Come check it out for yourself!

Five ways to Celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day

May 3rd, 2018

 

Mother’s Day only comes but once a year. It is chance for kids of all ages to take time out to appreciate mom for all she does to keep family happy and healthy.

Here are five ideas to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day and make her day extra special.

Take her out for a day of dining and shopping! What mom really loves most is spending time with you!  To make the experience all about her, why not spend the day together doing what she loves? Furthermore, if shopping is not her thing, take her to a play or the movies instead, then hit her favorite restaurant.

Plan a picnic and bring all her favorite picnic foods. Mother’s Day comes at a perfect time of year to picnic!  Everything is in bloom with the fragrant air and beautiful surroundings, why dine inside? Bring along a game of Croquet or lawn darts and get a fun prize for the winner.

Breakfast in Bed. Let her sleep in and serve her an elegant breakfast in bed with mimosa and her favorite breakfast.  Try a new quiche recipe.  She will appreciate your  effort. Bring her fresh cut flowers along with big smiles from the “wait staff.”  Include some additional surprises, like a homemade photo album with fun memories of the past year.

Plant some flowers. If you have some extra space in your garden, you can create a real, live Mother’s Day canvas. First, buy various packets of flower seeds that grow fast and well. Then have your family draw a picture or write a short message (like “We love Mom”) in the garden dirt with a stick. Drop the flower seeds into the dirt lines; then cover them up, and water every few days. Before long, your picture (or message) will be blooming, and you’ll have a Mother’s Day gift that keeps on growing.

Give her a day of pampering. At some point on Mother’s Day, mom may want some time alone for a little rest and relaxation. Make sure you get what she needs—and deserves—by asking for it in advance. For instance, a few days before Mother’s Day, ask her to give you a list of a few “services” she desires. Present her with the first one on Saturday to make it a Mother’s Day weekend experience.

Surprise mom this year with a special beauty and pampering gift from Belladerm MedSpa!  Buy a $150 gift certificate from Belladerm MedSpa and receive a $25 gift card as a bonus to use for yourself or another special mom.

For everything mom does for you, be sure you make her Mother’s Day extra special!  Consequently, she will know how much she is appreciated and truly loved.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! From your friends at Belladerm MedSpa.
