Vaginal Rejuvenation (Coming Soon)
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term that covers several vaginal corrective procedures. These procedures are meant to correct problems that can occur after giving birth or during the aging process. Conditions can include:
Laxity (lack of tightness) of the vagina
Stress urinary incontinence
Lack of lubrication
How does it work?
Energy-based treatments provide a nonsurgical option for vaginal rejuvenation.
Using energy-based treatments — light therapy, radio frequency, laser, or a combination — we can tighten, increase blood flow to, and lubricate the vagina.
Who gets this treatment?
The two main groups of women who get this treatment are:
- Postmenopausal women
- Postpartum women
What does an energy-based treatment for vaginal rejuvenation involve?
Both types of treatment use heat. The device uses the energy to heat up the top layers of the tissue. When the tissue is heated, the underlying layers of tissue create extra collagen to help heal the area. By damaging the top layers of tissue, the lower layers make new and firmer tissue.
What does the energy-based treatment feel like?
There is typically little irritation during the treatment. The area being treated may feel warm during the procedure. A topical anesthetic may be used if there is discomfort.
What are the different types of energy-based treatments for vaginal rejuvenation?
There are two types of energy-based treatments for vaginal rejuvenation. Both treatments use heat.
- Radiofrequency (RF) treatments: Electromagnetic waves are used in RF devices. Similar to the waves used in a microwave – but to a lesser extent – the energy is focused to heat the tissue. Brand names of RF devices include Geneveve by Viveve and ThermiVa.
- CO2 laser treatment: The laser heats up the upper layers of the tissue, causing the tissue in the lower layers to make more collagen. This makes the skin firmer and tighter. Brand names of laser devices include MonaLisa Touch®, FemTouch™ and FemiLift.
