As if aging didn’t give us enough to worry about with wrinkled, sagging skin, there’s yet one other area that’s affected as we advance in years: the vagina. Muscles become more relaxed as we age, which causes looseness and dryness.
Pregnancy and childbirth can further contribute to vaginal problems, including stretched tissues and bladder problems. When women approach menopause, estrogen levels drop, and this further exacerbates vaginal atrophy.
These problems can have profound effects on a woman’s quality of life. An irritated and dry vagina can impede sexual pleasure and intimacy. Overall discomfort can lead to chafing, and mild urinary incontinence can be inconvenient and embarrassing.
The good news is that help is available for women who are struggling with these vaginal issues.
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, which revitalizes and reconditions the vagina by reconstructing damaged muscles and tissues of the vaginal cavity.
RejuVAnate is a novel, painless pulsed CO2 laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment to vaginal tissues delivered through a special hand piece in a procedure that takes less than 15 minutes. Downtime is minimal; patients must only have vaginal “rest” for the three days after the procedure.
How RejuVAnate Works
RejuVAnate works via pulses of laser energy into the collagen layer of the vaginal mucous membrane. Concentrated thermal heating leads to collagen and elastin “shrinkage” and secondary regeneration, producing a tightening of the vaginal tissues. These CO2 laser treatments are delivered in a series of three spaced four weeks apart.
The initial shrinkage and secondary regeneration produce improved pressure on the “G-Spot” and the clitoris. Tightening also occurs along the base of the overlying bladder, which improves minor urinary incontinence.
The result of the treatment is the complete remodeling of the vaginal mucosa, in addition to the re-establishment of robust, more “youthful” vaginal tissue embedded with thick and long collagen fibers. Patients report a noticeable tightening of the entire vaginal canal for increased friction and pleasure during sexual intimacy.
Vaginal rejuvenation helps:
- Vulvovaginal Atrophy (painful intercourse, dryness, itching/irritation)
- Vaginal laxity
- Mild urinary incontinence or mild overactive bladder
Vaginal rejuvenation may be right for you if you have minimal to moderate vaginal looseness or laxity not severe enough to need a complete surgical repair but bothersome enough (less “grip,” too much “droop”) to diminish sexual pleasure and sometimes lead to modest urinary incontinence.
