Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon to enhance the sexual aesthetics of a woman. However, some women may prefer non-surgical options to achieve similar results. With the arrival of new and advanced laser and radio frequency technologies, it is possible to achieve a woman’s vaginal rejuvenation goals in a non-surgical manner.
Dr. Paul McCluskey is a leading plastic surgeon providing cutting edge surgical and non-surgical procedures, including vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. McCluskey will offer both types of options separately or as a combined procedure to suitable candidates. He receives patients from Atlanta, GA and surrounding communities for vaginal rejuvenation.
In recent years, highly sophisticated and gentle laser techniques have been introduced to support sensitive aesthetic procedures such as vaginal rejuvenation. An experienced cosmetic surgeon may provide laser treatments to appropriate candidates seeking improvements to the vaginal appearance without surgery.
Laser energy can be used in a targeted manner to tighten the vaginal canal as well as rejuvenate the vaginal mucosa for enhanced lubrication. IntimaLase and MonaLisa Touch are two of the popular laser technologies that can yield highly satisfactory outcomes in vaginal rejuvenation.
IntimaLase Laser Procedure
IntimaLase laser device is employed to address a common condition called the Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome (VRS). VRS involves loss of elasticity or lax skin in the vaginal wall. This can not only compromise the aesthetic appearance of the vagina, but also result in reduced friction during sexual intercourse. As a consequence, the patient may fail to achieve complete satisfaction during the sexual activity.
VRS can be caused due to vaginal childbirth when the vaginal walls are overstretched, or due to aging and other factors. IntimaLase device will deliver controlled heat energy to the vaginal tissue. This will stimulate the production of fresh collagen in the skin and lead to a firmer, tighter, and more youthful vaginal appearance.
MonaLisa Touch is an advanced laser technique designed to treat Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA). This condition is commonly experienced by post-menopausal women. VVA can lead to burning, dryness, itching in the vaginal area, causing discomfort during sexual intercourse. The MonaLisa Touch laser device will employ gentle, fractionated beams of light to promote new collagen and rejuvenate the vagina.
The laser beams will penetrate the epithelial layer of the vaginal mucous, which will act as a trigger for fibroblast activity. The treatment will gradually improve vaginal lubrication and restore the vaginal mucosa to a healthier and more youthful state. The treatment is efficient and involves almost no pain or discomfort. Dr. McCluskey is a pre-eminent plastic surgeon providing vaginal rejuvenation procedures to patients in Atlanta, GA and nearby areas.
Radio Frequency (RF) Treatment
Some surgeons may offer ThermiVa radio frequency (RF) technology to achieve similar results as laser for vaginal rejuvenation. This non-surgical, in-office procedure can be completed in about 30 minutes. It involves the delivery of RF energy to promote collagen and tightening of loose vaginal tissue. Just like laser, the procedure involves almost no pain, anesthesia, or downtime.
