Fractional CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
What is Fractional CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The Fractional CO2 laser is the latest, and most powerful, vaginal rejuvenating laser which promotes the remodeling of the vaginal mucous epithelium layer to allow the vaginal walls to rebuild a naturally stronger structure, recover lost volume, increase natural moisture and lubrication, and elasticity. Not like a surgical invasive procedure, Fractional CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation gives you a safe and effective treatment, without any downtime.
Who Should Consider Vaginal Rejuvenation?
After child birth or menopause, your vagina may have lost elasticity, or the walls may have thinned and significantly decreased producing natural lubrication. Many women have scar tissue from perineal tears, or episiotomy, on delivery, lack sexual satisfaction from loosening and laxity of the vagina, degrees of urinary incontinence, weakness of muscles from vaginal atrophy to cause changes in the structure and function of the vagina.
If you are suffering any of the above symptoms, the Fractional CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is your first choice to fix your problem.
The treatment is also beneficial for external labia, and may decrease size for a more pleasing aesthetic, lighten colour of the area, and improve skin texture and tone.
How to perform Fractional Co2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The doctor will firstly perform a vaginal exam to exclude any potential concerns of abnormalities.
During the treatment, the doctor or nurse will move the sterilized applicator along the vaginal wall in an outward motion, applying the laser in a 360 degree pattern covering the entire area. The whole procedure will only take a few minutes. You may experience a minor heat sensation during the treatment, but it is very gentle and you should not feel any pain.
For perineal region treatment, you always need topical numbing cream to reduce the mild burning sensation. No need for oral pain medication during or after the procedure. No down time on your post procedure.
How soon and how often treatment can achieve the desired result?
From the Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment Protocol, usually 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart, are needed to see optimal results and achieve the desired outcome on the vaginal layer.
Annual maintenance treatments are highly recommended.
What is the post procedure care required following the treatment?
After the treatment, it is possible you could feel burning and minor discharge and/or bleeding, but these symptoms are very mild and usually resolve within 1-2 days. Vaginal lubricating gel can help for the discomfort. In the first one week after the treatment, try to avoid heat exposure in the treated area (such as a hot shower or sauna); Try to refrain sexual activity or use of tampons or douche; Wear cotton underwear and loose fitting bottoms to allow the treated area to be comfortable.
What are the risks associated with a Fractional CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation.
Like any other laser procedure, you may have a mild burning sensation, very mild bruising, or swelling following the treatment. Your risk of developing a urinary tract infection over 50 is slightly increased. There were no other significant treatment complications reported in current research and clinical trial study.
