Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Women’s sexual health can change and weaken over time. These changes are usually caused by menopause, but they can also result from pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding, and medical treatments. As estrogen production slows with age, many women experience atrophy with thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls. This condition is called “Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM)” because symptoms include urinary problems in addition to vaginal issues.
Genitourinary syndrome of menopause signs and symptoms may include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal burning
- Vaginal discharge
- Genital itching
- Burning with urination
- Urgency with urination
- Frequent urination
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Urinary incontinence
- Light bleeding after intercourse
- Discomfort with intercourse
- Decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity
Are you a woman who suffers from these unpleasant and inconvenient symptoms? It’s possible to take control of your sexual wellness once again. In our clinic, we have treatments for sexual wellness with Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation. This is an excellent choice for those who are looking for non-invasive, safe therapy.
How Does Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation at Inner Vitality Bellevue delivers patented Fotona SMOOTH® laser pulses to the surface of the vagina and vulva. These unique pulses are specially engineered to produce a mild heating effect, which in turn stimulates the formation of new collagen and strengthens the tissue, giving a firmer and tighter quality and better lubrication. The patented delivery mode allows for a highly controlled, safe procedure with no impact to any critical structures. There is no penetration or disruption of the mucosal surface. That makes the procedures gentle and safe, without compromising effectiveness.
Is This the Right Treatment for You?
Treatment with Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is appropriate for any woman who wants to enhance the functionality and sensation in her intimate parts. Perfect candidates are those who:
- Want to improve vaginal tightness
- Are suffering from vaginal dryness or atrophy
- Have urinary incontinence issues
- Have decreased sexual pleasure
What is Involved in a Treatment Session?
Topical numbing cream is applied to avoid any discomfort, especially for sensitive patients. Dr. Kuntz then introduces a specially designed glass tube speculum and then proceeds with the gentle laser treatment protocol, typically lasting 15-20 minutes.
What is the Downtime after Laser Treatment?
This is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment, and typically has minimal to no downtime. You may notice increased vaginal discharge and mild sensitivity for a few days to a week. You can resume nearly all regular activities. However, we recommend you avoid lifting heavy objects and undertaking long periods of sustained exercise for 10-14 days. You can resume sexual activities in 7-10 days. During intercourse, the treated area may feel more sensitive than usual, but this is a common treatment effect.
How Treatment Sessions Do I Need?
Two to three procedure sessions at 4-6 week intervals are typically performed and achieve optimal results. However, some patients may require additional treatments, depending on severity of their condition.
How Soon will I Notice Improvement?
Although symptoms may be improved even a few days after the procedure, optimal results start to show from one month to six weeks after the initial treatments, since effects are due to the formation of new collagen in the treated tissue.
How Long will Results Last?
The results have been shown to be stable up to 18 months after treatment. After this they start to slowly diminish. A maintenance treatment of one session per year is recommended after the initial series of sessions to achieve lasting optimal results.
Do I Need Any Tests Prior to Laser Treatment?
Yes, a standard gynecological examination, including a Pap-smear, should be performed by your gynecologist prior to receiving the treatment at Inner Vitality.
Can the Vaginal Laser Treatment Help Urinary Incontinence?
Yes, we can expect some degree of improvement in most cases of urinary incontinence, decreasing unwanted leakage and the use of pads. Complete dryness is reached in a much smaller percentage of cases of severe incontinence compared to the dryness rates in patients with mild and moderate incontinence.
Is it Possible to Over-tighten the Vaginal Canal?
No. The treatment results in only a slight shrinkage of existing collagen and stimulates the production of natural collagen, enabling regeneration to the pre-condition state.
Are There any Contraindications for Vagina Laser Treatment?
Yes, primarily pregnancy, positive Pap-smear, vaginal infections or injuries.
