Tighten Vaginal Walls
Overstretched and/or dry vaginal canal from childbirth and/or from natural aging
Vaginal dryness, burning and pain during intercourse are common symptoms in post-menopausal women. These symptoms are frequently associated to sexual difficulties, recurrent urinary tract infections and bleeding after intercourse.
The Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM) is the result of the marked decline in estrogen levels seen after menopause, which causes loss of vaginal collagen and elastin leading to thinning of the vaginal walls. This process of ageing leaves this area vulnerable to injury during intercourse.
Many women do not share this concern with their primary care physicians, and those that do usually get local estrogen cremes, lubricating agents or hormonal treatments in those cases that don’t have contraindications.
Laser-directed vaginal rejuvenation is an alternative solution to this problem.
Laser Directed Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment
Using the same principles used in tissue rejuvenation for the face and body, the laser beam treats the vaginal mucosa to restore the lost collagen and elastin, revitalizing the tissue. The treatment does not cause damage to the vaginal lining, and it is tolerated well, with most women experiencing no after effects and some with a minor discharge that resolves in hours.
The actual laser handpiece never touches the vaginal wall; it is contained within a glass speculum that once in place does not move, either.
Results of Vaginal Laser Treatment
Tightened vaginal walls, increased sensation and enhanced friction. Reduced urge to urinate, and leakage due to bladder support.
