In addition, Dr. Mayhew is experienced with two different types of lasers. These lasers include Intense Pulsed Lite (IPL) also known as Lite Energy Source and ERBIUM (ER) also known as Yag Laser and are described further below:
IPL therapy is a “quick-fix”
procedure requiring virtually no downtime to rejuvenate the skin and restore
a youthful glow. IPL stimulates new collagen to form in the skin thereby
reducing fine lines, minimizing pore size and acne scars,
and increasing skin elasticity. Intense pulsed light also diminishes flushing
or redness of the face associated with Rosacea, reduces
brown spots, erases broken capillaries,
and smoothes roughly textured skin. The pulses of light produced by IPL
equipment are very short in duration, so discomfort and damage to non-target
tissues is minor. Most people who undergo IPL epilation only experience
slight irritation similar to that of a minor sunburn. The Titan™
by Cutera™ is an example of such a laser. The Titan is a fantastic laser for rejuvenating and tightening.
It sustains deep dermal heating which results in new collagen formation over time. There is no pain, no downtime.
Results can be appreciated within 2 weeks! Best of all - you can have as many visits as
you like for as much tightening as you want. The Titan can even be used on loose abdomen after child-bearing.

Cutera™ by visiting their site at: www.cutera.com.
The high-powered YAG Laser produces energy in a wavelength that gently penetrates the skin, is readily absorbed by water and scatters the heat effects of the laser light. These properties enable Dr. Mayhew to remove thin layers of aged and sun-damaged skin tissue with exquisite precision while protecting healthy surrounding tissue. The YAG laser is commonly used for hair removal and leg vein removal such as Varicose & Spider Veins. These lasers are also used for the treatment of minor vascular defects such as spider veins on the face and skin resurfacing to improve moderate facial wrinkles, birthmarks, port wine stains, mild surface scars, or other splotchy skin discolorations. LaserGenesis and CoolGlide™ by Cutera™ are an examples of such lasers. Please learn more about Cutera™ by visiting their site at: www.cutera.com.
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
Labiaplasty – Cosmetic Vaginal Surgery is plastic surgery of the the external folds of the female genital organs that surround theVagina also called the Vulva. The procedure involves reshaping or reducing the size of of the labia that may become enlargened over a period of time or due to any one of several reasons such as: childbirth, injury or disease. Although enlargened labia is not a health issue for many women it may be an issue of functionality or appearance. Many patients complain that elongated labia become painful during exercise, while sitting for long periods of time, during sexual intercourse, or due to rubbing on clothing. Surgical reduction is a permanent solution to this situation that will result in a smaller, normal-looking labia.
Dr. Mayhew will perform the labiaplasty surgery in Los Gatos. It usually takes one to two weeks before patients can resume normal activities. Mild discomfort, swelling and bruising may be experienced.
Female Genital Reconstruction Surgery (Vaginoplasty) is plastic surgery to repair or reshape or reduce the vaginal muscles and/or the perineum, and interior/posterior repair, and also reshape the mons pubis. The vaginoplasty surgery tightens the vaginal walls, reinforces the vaginal support (muscles and connective tissue), and tightens the vaginal opening. You may hear variations of terms such as: vulvar-vaginal reconstruction, perineum, perineal trauma, perineal dysfunction, sexual abuse, parturition, vaginal introitus, acute deceleration injury, straddle injury, insertion injury, forceful coitus, intrapartum laceration, obstetric trauma.
Vaginoplasty is the surgery that “tightens” and rebuilds the vaginal muscles and the perineum. Childbirth, (especially multiple childbirths), and other genetic factors often cause the vaginal muscles to stretch, tear, or weaken. The size of the vagina swells larger and sometimes there is a loss of sensation (and pleasure). In some cases it can lead to urinary incontinence or leaking.
Vaginoplasty tightens the vagina which will aid in increasing sexual pleasure for the woman.
Vaginoplasty also addresses urinary incontinence, hernia, and interior/posterior
You may hear variations of terms such as: labiaplasty or laser labiaplasty
or vaginal rejuvenation and vaginoplasty or laser vaginoplasty or vaginal
tightening. All the terms mean the same thing for surgically altering and tightening the vaginal muscles.
