Female Genital Rejuvenation

Sexual health is important to all women, although many are reluctant to discuss it with their physician. With advancing age or after childbirth, many women may experience vaginal relaxation syndrome: an increase in the inner diameter of the vaginal wall. This can result in decreased sensation, sexual pleasure, and the inability to achieve orgasm, for both partners. Stress urinary incontinence is another common problem in women due to reduced muscular tone in the pelvic region. This leads to involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or physical exertion.

At Skin Experts, Er:YAG laser is used for non-surgical, non-invasive tightening of the vaginal canal and anterior vaginal wall respectively. This technique stimulates collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the vagina resulting in tightening, and can tighten the anterior vaginal wall giving support to the bladder and returning normal continence function. It is a painless, minimally invasive procedure that is safe and fast, and avoids the undesirable complications present with surgical methods. Clinical results show a tightened vaginal canal, greater sexual satisfaction and significant improvement in a patient’s quality of life. Usually, one to three sessions are recommended. No special pre-op preparation or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities following the procedure.

With advancing age, childbirth or genetic predisposition, women may suffer from darkening or wrinkling of their genital skin, which we treat with laser sessions. We also offer fillers for labial augmentation which improve the shape and function of the genital area. In short, we offer a full female genital rejuvenation treatment plan that addresses problems of vaginal relaxation, incontinence, pigmentation skin laxity, or loss of volume as part of a total intimate care.
