What is CO2 laser vaginal rejuvenation?
Carbon dioxide laser vaginal rejuvenation is a quick, non-surgical procedure done to restore vaginal health by promoting the remodelling of the vaginal mucous epithelium layer. The regeneration of new tissue within the vaginal walls that takes place following treatment rebuilds a naturally stronger structure, and recovers lost volume, hydration and elasticity.
How does it work?
A probe is inserted into the vagina and optically splits a laser beam into a series of very small dots that are aimed at the inside wall of the vagina. At the point of contact, the laser dot removes a tiny area of tissue. This creates a microscopic pinhole about the size of the diameter of a human hair. As the body repairs itself, it stimulates cells to create new healthy tissue at the site of the dot and immediately surrounding it. The laser also heats the area between the dots, stimulating the activity of specialised cells that create elastin and collagen (the scaffolding components of healthy tissue) which result in vaginal tightening and hydration.
Who can benefit from this treatment?
Women who have been through childbirth, going through menopause or experiencing signs like vaginal laxity, dryness, decreased lubrication, discomfort during sexual intercourse and stress urinary incontinence would benefit tremendously from CO2 laser vaginal rejuvenation.
Multiple sessions are required for desired results.
