Not too long ago, vaginal rejuvenation was limited to labiaplasty, and not many surgeons offered the procedure. Today, with the advancement of laser technologies and surgical techniques, vaginal rejuvenation has become common in many practices.
So what can be accomplished with vaginal rejuvenation?
- Surgical correction of elongation of the labia
- Correction of clitoral holding
- Tightening of the external skin or labia
- Lightening of the external skin
- Tightening of the vaginal canal
- Restoration of vaginal mucosa, correction of dryness
- Improvement in urinary leakage
Surgical treatment is used on the external tissues. Frequently women experience elongation of the labia after childbirth, and some are born with an uneven or enlarged labia. Correction can often be done in the office under local anesthesia. Downtime lasts a couple of days.
For minimal wrinkling or elongation, the CO2RE Intima Laser can be used to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkling. Internally, the laser affects the mucosa to correct dryness, and works to tighten the vagina. Frequently, improvement is also seen with urinary leakage problems. The procedure is relatively painless, takes about 15 minutes, and is done in office. Three treatments four weeks apart are recommended. There is little to no downtime associated with the procedure.
The bottom line is that there are now simple and effective corrections for problems in a sensitive area that, in the past, a woman would just have to cope with. We are pleased to offer the vConfidence procedure, featuring the CO2RE Intima Laser, to our patients.
