Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation at Cornerstone MD can help to strengthen your vaginal tissue with the help of advanced InMode technology to address issues, like pelvic floor dysfunction and overly stretched labia majora. Vaginal rejuvenation with InMode's Aviva and Votiva work by delivering safe and uniform heat to the soft tissue matrix of the inner and outer vagina, strengthening the tissue over time. The procedure also improves the physical appearance of the vagina, offering a boost in your overall confidence without the scars that accompany labiaplasty.

During pellet therapy, pellets are inserted subcutaneously into the body in a quick, simple, in-office procedure. These pellets will gradually be absorbed, dispersing hormones throughout the body.
Why Bioidentical Pellet Therapy?
Because it is easy! Hormone replacement patients receive as few as three bioidentical hormone pellet insertions per year. This way they do not have to think about it, and the hormone is available when their bodies need it. It is a simple, one-and-done process, and there is no need to worry about remembering to take a pill or shot every day
