Emerging Non-Surgical Approaches
In this category, the newest entries include devices using CO2 fractional energy or radiofrequency to prompt the recovery of genital mucosa by promoting the generation of collagen and restoring blood supply.
The treatment may include delivering energy externally to treat tissue laxity and internally to enhance the functional aspects of the vagina.
The simplicity of these systems is that the procedures are often undertaken in a clinical setting, take 15 to 30 minutes without the need for an anesthetic, and there is minimal to no discomfort, downtime, or side effects for the patient.
Similar to men who experience erectile dysfunction, women are starting to feel emboldened to take steps to enhance their self-confidence and sex lives. Experts believe that advanced vaginal rejuvenation treatments for women will significantly improve women’s sexual well-being and overall health.
