Vaginal rejuvenation is a term that has gained attention in recent years, but many people are still unsure about what it entails.
Whether you’re experiencing changes due to childbirth, aging, or other factors, understanding vaginal rejuvenation can help you make informed decisions about your sexual health.
Keep reading for essential information about vaginal rejuvenation, including what it is, common concerns it addresses, available procedures, and potential benefits.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation refers to various procedures to improve the appearance, functionality, and overall health of the vaginal area. It is a broad term that encompasses both surgical and non-surgical techniques, depending on the individual’s needs and desired outcomes. The procedures are typically performed by a qualified provider who specializes in women’s intimate health.
Vaginal rejuvenation addresses the following common concerns:
- Vaginal Laxity. Childbirth, hormonal changes, and aging can lead to vaginal laxity, where the vaginal tissues lose their elasticity and tone. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures can help tighten and firm the vaginal canal, enhancing sexual satisfaction and overall comfort.
- Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). SUI is a common condition characterized by the involuntary leakage of urine during activities such as coughing, sneezing, or exercising. Vaginal rejuvenation techniques can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and provide support to reduce or eliminate urinary incontinence.
- Vaginal Dryness and Atrophy. Hormonal changes, especially during menopause, can cause vaginal dryness and atrophy, leading to discomfort and pain during intercourse. Vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help restore moisture, improve tissue health, and alleviate these symptoms.
IncontiLase™ and IntimaLase® Treatments
Various vaginal rejuvenation procedures are available in different forms, such as laser, radiofrequency (RF), and surgical. Here at Dr. Chow, we offer IncontiLaseTM and Fotona’s IntimaLase® — two popular laser-based treatments used for vaginal rejuvenation, specifically in addressing stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and other intimate health concerns. Let’s take a closer look at each procedure and its benefits:
IncontiLase™ is a non-surgical laser treatment developed by Fotona that targets stress urinary incontinence. This procedure utilizes a gentle, non-ablative Er: YAG laser to stimulate collagen production and tighten the vaginal tissues. The laser energy is delivered to the vaginal walls, promoting the remodeling of collagen fibers, which results in improved support and tone for the urethra and bladder.
Clinical studies have shown that IncontiLase™ can provide significant improvement in symptoms related to stress urinary incontinence, such as reduced urine leakage and improved bladder control. The treatment is safe and effective, with long-lasting results observed in many patients.
IntimaLase® is another laser treatment developed by Fotona that focuses on vaginal rejuvenation and tightening. This procedure utilizes a fractionated Er: YAG laser to gently heat the vaginal tissues, stimulating collagen remodeling and promoting tissue contraction. It aims to address concerns like vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, and even mild to moderate pelvic organ prolapse.
IntimaLase® is designed to enhance the overall tightness and elasticity of the vaginal canal, leading to improved sexual satisfaction, reduced vaginal dryness, and increased comfort during intercourse. The treatment also encourages the production of new collagen, which helps restore tissue health and tone over time.
IncontiLase™ and Fotona’s IntimaLase® are advanced laser treatments that offer non-surgical solutions for stress urinary incontinence and vaginal rejuvenation. If you are considering these treatments, it is best to consult with our qualified providers here at Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Practice in Lee’s Summit, MO, to determine the most appropriate option for your unique needs.
