Vaginal Rejuvenation‎ Q & A

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation includes treatments and procedures aimed at restoring the health of the vaginal tissues that have become atrophied or damaged as a result of age, childbirth or other issues.

What is vaginal atrophy?

Vaginal atrophy is a chronic condition that develops as a woman ages, resulting in a loss of natural lubrication and a thinning of the vaginal wall. The changes in the vagina occur as a result of a reduction in natural estrogen and progesterone. Women with vaginal atrophy can have symptoms like:

  • vaginal burning or itching
  • painful intercourse
  • reduced natural lubrication
  • vaginal discharge
  • reduced sexual pleasure
  • increased risk of urinary tract infections

Some vaginal rejuvenation procedures can also help address cosmetic issues that can occur with age, including restoring tone to loose, lax, sagging tissues in the vulvar area.

How is vaginal rejuvenation performed?

That depends on the issues being treated and other factors. Often, procedures can be performed using laser technology. In these treatments, laser energy is delivered through a special wand designed to deliver the energy to the deeper tissues of the vaginal wall. During the procedure, the laser fires beams of highly-focused energy to specific areas of the vaginal canal, stimulating the production of collagen, a naturally-occurring substance that helps tissues maintain elasticity and resilience. The energy also jump-starts the natural lubrication process to help restore the vagina to a more youthful state. Laser procedures can be performed right in the office without the need for sedation.

What is recovery like?

Recovery from laser vaginal rejuvenation is fast; most women can resume their normal activities right away.

Can the symptoms of vaginal atrophy be treated without surgery or laser treatments?

Some women may benefit from hormone treatments to address specific symptoms like vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Many women prefer vaginal rejuvenation procedures since they may eliminate the need for ongoing hormonal treatments to keep symptoms from occurring.
