What conditions can be treated with laser rejuvenation?

Vaginal laser rejuvenation can alleviate a range of symptoms and improve your life.

This procedure stimulates the process of collagen remodeling and it can alleviate: 

  • Sexual dissatisfaction, including pain during intercourse
  • Increased dryness 
  • Reduced sensation
  • Accidental bladder leakage

A vaginal probe-CO2 laser is the most common type of technology that is being used in vaginal laser rejuvenation. The vaginal probe is inserted and the laser is used anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes.

The laser causes micro-damage to the vaginal tissue, tricking the body into repairing itself. That energy stimulates new cell growth and collagen, and elastin formation. In the end, the vagina will feel tighter due to thicker tissue, the result of the formation of new blood vessels at the site of injury leads.

If you're suffering from a serious medical condition like incontinence or vaginal prolapse, a qualified gynecologist is needed to prescribe a solution, help repair the damage surgically, or recommend pelvic floor physical therapy.
