Do You Suffer from Vaginal Discomfort?

Vaginal discomforts as dryness, burning, urinary incontinence can occur also during pre-menopause or after childbirth. The main cause is often atrophic vaginitis: a disease that can adversely affect your life and the relationship with your partner. Among the women suffering from it:

75 %

4 %

MonaLisa Touch® is a functional vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a special fractional CO2 laser, specifically created for the vaginal mucosa. MonaLisa Touch® prevents and resolves estrogen drops in the vaginal tissue (typically occurring during menopause or after childbirth) by re-activating the production of new collagen and reestablishing the conditions that the vaginal mucosa once had. MonaLisa Touch® is now the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its after-effects, which many women suffer from during menopause and after childbirth.


The CO2 laser gently acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner, creating indistinguishable micro-lesions that are required for triggering a neocollagenesis process (production of new collagen) and reorganizing and re-equilibrating the components of the vaginal mucosa. The laser’s action therefore safely and painlessly reactivates and reestablishes the proper function of the relative urogenital structures while also improving the symptoms associated with urinary dysfunction (mild incontinence due to stress). A tissue regeneration process lasting numerous weeks is triggered, but stimulation occurs immediately and significant improvements can be seen even after the first treatment.


The mucosa tissue thus becomes more nourished and hydrated and the epithelium becomes thicker, more toned (vaginal tightening) and elastic. It also reestablishes the correct vaginal pH, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces the risk of infection. One simple treatment lasting only a few minutes, without pain, side effects or recovery time, can give the tissue the tone and elasticity it once had, with positive effects on one’s quality of life and personal relationships.

Many Treatments Options


EmpowerRF | Morpheus8V is a non-invasive in office treatment utilizing radio frequency or RF. It is the technical advancement of the Votiva device (which we were one of the leading providers in the country). The treatments of Morpheus8V require no general anesthesia, only locally placed numbing gel for some of them. This technology has long been used on the face for tackling wrinkles and dry sagging skin (like the jowls and around the mouth and eyes). Key Benefits: We found it can help resolve painful intercourse due to dryness, laxity due to childbirth, and leaking with urinary incontinence. Our retrospective study results supported these these key EmpowerRF benefits. Plus, we found out that EmpowerRF also helps with overactive bladder or urge incontinence which previously had been a tough problem to relieve for women.

VTone | Pelvic Floor Rehab

VTone is a gentle, FDA cleared technology designed to provide intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education to rehabilitate weak pelvic floor muscles, and address stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence. VTone’s two-sided tip inserts quickly and comfortably into the vaginal canal.


Votiva is a simple and quick nonsurgical procedure that is changing the lives of women who have experienced with vaginal laxity. The symptoms can range from painful dryness, unpleasant sexual intercourse, a feeling of being too loose inside, bladder leakage, itching and more. Votiva promotes healthy tissue growth by restoring the collagen in the deep layers of the tissue. It rejuvenates tissue and alleviates many common symptoms that women experience after childbirth, menopause, aging, cancer treatments and more. It is a safe and effective way to restore tissue without added hormones. FormaV is radio frequency which is applied inside and outside the vagina. It feels like a hot stone massage. Studies have shown that bipolar radio frequency resolved vaginal dryness and stress urinary incontinence better than any previous laser treatments.

AVIVA | In-office Labiaplasty

Aviva is ideal for women seeking aesthetic vaginal enhancements as well as function restoration in less than twenty minutes and under local anesthesia in-office. This treatment is particularly beneficial for women wanting the results of a labiaplasty without the need for any excisions. With minimal invasion required, Aviva is great for patients desiring a natural looking result, with less downtime and minimal-to-no scarring.


What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a combination of treatments made to tighten and improve to a patient’s specifications their intimate area. Millions of women experience vaginal atrophy due to childbirth or aging. Vaginal rejuvenation addresses this common complaint by decreasing the internal and external vaginal diameter while enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control.

What are typical symptoms of women who choose vaginal rejuvenation?

Women who pursue vaginal rejuvenation to address their vaginal relaxation may complain of:  

How long does vaginal rejuvenation take?

Individual procedures typically take between 1 and 2 hours, most patients require up to 3 sessions for better results.

How much does vaginal rejuvenation cost?

A quote based on your specific medical history, physical exam, and desired goals will be provided upon the conclusion of your initial consultation.

Is there a fee for the initial consultation with the doctor?

No! The initial consultation is complimentary and focuses on an individualized plan of care to address each patient’s desires. Treatments are discussed in detail, before and after photos are reviewed, and all post-procedure protocols are explained.

Is vaginal rejuvenation covered by insurance?

Usually not, as it is considered an elective procedure such as breast augmentation, liposuction, or abdominoplasty. However, if patients have a medical diagnosis such as moderate to severe pelvic prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, among others, insurance may cover the medically necessary procedure. Should I have my vaginal rejuvenation performed by an OB/GYN or by a plastic surgeon? The answer is neither. Plastic surgeons tend to focus most of their practice and time on the most common elective procedures such as breast augmentation and face lifts. Vaginal rejuvenation (if performed at all) is a secondary procedure they rarely can perform with limited expertise. General OB/GYN’s have minimal training or experience performing noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation for premium aesthetic and functional results. Ideally, patients will seek out a specialist who has performed several vaginal rejuvenation procedures and is intimately familiar with the varied anatomy to provide optimal results both aesthetically and functionally.

When can I return to work after vaginal rejuvenation?

In general, right away! All our treatments are non-invasive, so there’s no downtime required.

How much pain should I expect after my treatment?

You’ll experience discomfort more than pain. It’s quite manageable and it should decrease by the next day following your procedure.

Will vaginal rejuvenation improve my sex life?

The purpose of vaginal rejuvenation is to tighten the vagina for increased friction and to regenerate cells, resulting in greater stimulation during intercourse. A patient’s sex life can also be enhanced by her increased self-confidence and the resulting increased libido. Two scientific studies have recently been published to address this issue. These studies concluded that 83% to 90% of vaginal rejuvenation patients experience successful results with an improved sex life following vaginal rejuvenation treatments!

How long will it take for me to achieve my results?

Final optimal results are typically appreciated after the third session, but we guarantee you will notice a difference right after your first treatment.

How long will results last after vaginal rejuvenation?

The results of vaginal rejuvenation typically last for a lifetime unless a new vaginal delivery reverses its affects. As we age, all parts of the body relax slightly but the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to surgery. The aging process involves muscle, tissue, and skin throughout the entire body.

Can vaginal rejuvenation be combined with other cosmetic surgical procedures?

Of course, as many as you’d like! You get a combination of treatments in just one visit.

I am from out of town. How long before I can travel back home after my surgery?

Pretty much right away! Most patients can drive themselves back home after their procedures, so you’ll be good to go.

Could I be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation even if I’ve never experienced a vaginal delivery?

Absolutely. While childbirth is the most common cause of vaginal relaxation, it may also be the result of:

The only way to find out if you are a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation is to consult for an evaluation to discuss your options.

What are typical symptoms of women who choose vaginal rejuvenation?

Women who pursue vaginal rejuvenation to address their vaginal relaxation may complain of:

Will I have a scar after Vaginal Rejuvenation?

None! Some treatments might leave scabbing skin that will fall off in a few days, but that’s it.

Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing

One of the most common reasons why people seek a skin care specialists is to find the most current and effective ways to make their skin look younger and keep it that way. Unfortunately, aging, poor nutrition, effects of the sun’s rays, and the general hazards of life take its toll on the skin. Over time, wrinkles, fine lines, shallow scars from acne, unresponsive skin, and other skin problems will appear.
To address these skin irregularities and blemishes, people often resort to laser resurfacing. This type of treatment involves small, concentrated pulsating beams of light being directed to the skin in an effort to remove dead or blemished skin on the top most layer. By having damaged skin cells vaporized at the surface level, the body will respond by renewing the cells during recovery. There are many types of laser resurfacing solutions, with one of the most effective being carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment.

How Does It Work?

Laser CO2 has been in use for many years to treat a variety of benign and malignant skin conditions, including wrinkles and scars, warts, birthmarks, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and many others. Carbon Dioxide Laser Treatment in particular, works by having the small beams of light eliminate dead skin cells, with the gap left by those cells forcing the body’s natural collagen production process to go faster.
The treatment is generally completed within one to two sessions, with its effect lasting for several years. It is non-invasive, and involves minimum discomfort, so requiring the use of anesthetic is not necessary.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing at Baja Medi Spa

Carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is one of the many medical grade services we offer at Baja MediSpa. Our Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Sara Lea Salas, has extensive training in administering the treatment, and does so using the latest in CO2 laser equipment.
While carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is a proven solution in skincare, and the continued advancement in equipment and solutions have minimized the risks and shortened the recovery period, the treatment may not be the best choice for some skin types. So if you have wrinkles, warts, scars, or other blemishes that you wish to have removed via a CO2 laser, it is best to contact Baja Medi Spa and schedule a consultation with Dr. Salas. She will meticulously analyze your skin type to recommend the best solutions possible. We have also discovered that a combination of treatments creates the best results for most concerns you may have.

Just because you are a grandmother or grandfather, doesn’t mean you have to look like one!
Our Radio Frequency procedure can soften wrinkles and tighten loose skin. This non-surgical procedure utilizes high frequency radio waves (medical grade electricity) to deliver heat to the specific area that needs treatment. The generated heat will penetrate the dermis, leading to the contraction of collagen and followed by regeneration of collagen—both resulting in skin tightening. A non-surgical facelift !


Radio Frequency is highly effective in the treatment of various skin issues. From fine lines and wrinkles to lax skin and cellulite, our Radio Frequency skin tightening treatment will work wonders. Aside from the tightening and lifting effects of this procedure, you will also benefit from the increased blood circulation in and around the treated area.

  • Most common treatment areas include:
  • Chin
  • Eyes – above and underneath
  • Brow lines
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks


Depending on which areas are treated, the whole skin tightening process usually takes 30 to 60 minutes from start to finish. A sensation of warmth will be felt over the areas that are targeted such as fine lines, wrinkles, cellulite, or loose skin. Changes in the appearance of your skin can be seen immediately even after the first treatment. Improvement will continue for months; considerable reduction in wrinkles and firmer skin will be more noticeable.

After the procedure, the area of treatment may remain slightly reddened for up to an hour. The total recovery time may extend up to 24 to 48 hours post-treatment as the skin may feel dry but you can immediately return to your normal routine. The number of Radio Frequency treatments depend on the areas being treated and the optimum effect can be seen within two to six months after the last Radio Frequency session.

Look your best instantly without the downtime!

Baja MediSpa is proud to offer its clients the innovative intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. Through IPL, we can perform a number of skin treatments more efficiently than other conventional methods. With the guidance and experience of Dr. Sara Lea Salas, Board Certified Dermatologist, you can be sure that our IPL or intense pulsed light treatments in Tijuana, Mexico are both effective and safe for your skin.


Intense pulsed light treatments involve the use of pulsed, polychromatic, high-intensity non-coherent light. The light used is typically within the wavelength ranges of 500 nm to 1200 nm, depending on treatment needs. While similar to laser hair removal methods, IPL is a vastly different technique that relies on wave-like light pulses from a lamp instead of a focused monochromatic laser.


Thanks to its variable spectrum, intense pulsed light treatments can be used to target various chromophores in the skin, making them effective in treating skin discolorations. Other skin disorders that intense pulsed light can treat include acne, vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, sun-induced dyspigmentation, and Poikiloderma of Civatte. Additionally, IPL can stimulate the skin’s collagen production to make it appear more vibrant, and the procedure can tighten large pores on the patient’s skin.

IPL is perfect for treating brown age spots formed by broken capillaries both on the face and hands, another area that shows aging. Such pigments aggravate as a person ages, and they can make individuals appear even older than they look. With IPL, the capillaries are repaired, leaving the patient with a fairer skin tone.


With Dr. Sara Salas handling the procedures, intense pulsed light treatments are very safe and adaptable. Since the treatment can be easily adjusted to suit a patient’s needs, IPL does not have to be uncomfortable. Moreover, intense pulsed light treatments utilize cooling systems such as cryogen sprays, contact cooling, and refrigerated air in order to cool down the patient’s epidermis. No down time and could be done on your lunch hour!

As mentioned before, a combination of treatments usually produces the best and most lasting results. Our world-class facility features cutting-edge equipment and premier products, creating the setting for treatments with very favorable outcomes. With clients coming in from all parts of the United States and the world, you can be confident that Baja MediSpa offers premier services that are at par with the finest skin care companies in the globe.
