‘Rejuvenation’ seems to be the buzzword of the moment and you will probably think that with Vaginal Rejuvenation the peak has been reached. What else is there to invent after this?

You would however, be missing the fact that this is not an aesthetic treatment but one that restores comfort and well being in women who suffer from vaginal discomfort.

Vaginal discomfort can occur during menopause or after childbirth. The main cause of this is known as atrophic vaginitis.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments

  • Dyspareunia (pain during intercourse)
  • Vaginal itchiness and burning
  • Dryness and loss of lubrication
  • Mild prolapse and laxity
  • Vaginal and vulvar pain
  • Incontinence and urinary urgency

Atrophic Vaginitis

Atrophic Vaginitis is a serious condition which occurs during menopause or even during hormonal changes such as those experienced during childbirth. The lack of nourishment and hydration of the cells of the vaginal lining causes increased thinning which results in the area being ultra-sensitive, delicate and more prone to trauma. The result is dryness and burning and can be extremely embarrassing.

Pain During Sexual Intercourse (Dyspareunia)

Pain during sexual intercourse (Dyspareunia) is caused when there is lack of lubrication and elasticity of the vagina, and this can have a serious negative effect on a couple’s relationship, leading to lack of desire and avoidance of intimate moments. Dyspareunia is also caused when there is scarring left after an episiotomy or lacerations from spontaneous childbirth.

These issues are not often talked about as they are viewed as  normal effects of childbirth, however due to innovative laser techniques and minimally invasive treatments, vaginal rejuvenation can resolve these issues.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is one of the most common issues affecting women over the age of 35 years, which severely compromises their quality of life. Urinary incontinence is split into various levels and types ranging in severity: stress (laughing or coughing, lifting weight); urgency (involuntary loss of urine due to lack of control of the urination stimulus by the brain); mixed (incontinence from a combination of stress and urinary imperiosity); reflux (occurs when the bladder is so full that the internal pressure is greater than that of the urethra).

 

How Does the Treatment Work?

Vaginal rejuvenation works by stimulating the collagen producing hormones in the vaginal tissue. This, in turn, restores blood flow and increases lubrication. Tone is also restored over time to balance hormones and normalise physiology. This is the first effective non-hormonal treatment of vaginal atrophy.

The treatment is performed using a specialised Fractionated CO₂ laser and each session is complete in less than one hour. No anaesthetic is required no incisions are involved.

Generally, between one and three sessions, 40-60 days apart, are recommended.

 

Recovery

After each session most women report only slight discomfort that will last from one to three days. It is advisable to avoid hot baths, heavy lifting or strenuous exercise in the first few days.
