Laser vaginal rejuvenation is an increasingly popular treatment for women keen to seek a non-invasive treatment option for a wide variety of vaginal concerns and are not keen on the idea of more invasive surgery such as a vaginoplasty also known as a vaginal tightening surgery.
Many women undergo significant life events that can significantly impact on the soft tissues in the female genital area. These include childbirth by vaginal delivery, significant weight gain or loss, traumatic injury or undergoing the menopause. All of these factors can potentially contribute to diminished function of the vagina and adjacent supporting soft tissues. The purpose of laser gynaecology treatments is to significantly improve both the structure and function of the vagina and vulva by the stimulation of new healthy tissue regeneration to tighten, firm up and improve blood flow.
For patients who may be aware that the vaginal rejuvenation procedures can have a significant improvement on appearance and function, they may well be asking themselves if they are a candidate for a non-surgical vaginal laser treatment. In this article we will emphasise the key features of the ideal candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation or LVR, with the innovative Fotona laser platform.
At Centre for Surgery, we are fortunate to offer the revolutionary Fotona laser for a wide range of common women’s gynaecological concerns. Our gynaecologists offer IntimaLase, IncontiLase, ProlapLase and RenovaLase laser treatments which often eliminate the requirement for more invasive surgery. Women who are ideal patients for laser vaginal rejuvenation include those who feel that their vagina feels much looser compared with before childbirth and may notice less satisfaction with sexual intercourse as a result.
The most common reason for vaginal laxity is due to childbirth as although the vaginal soft tissue has an impressive ability to stretch, there eventually reaches a point where the tissues become irreversibly weakened during the delivery process as supporting tissues are damaged. Women who are going through the menopause may also develop vaginal dryness which can be a source of significant pain and discomfort and interfere with satisfactory sexual intercourse due to diminished production of oestrogen. Oestrogen plays a key role in maintaining lubrication of the vaginal tissue.
As the vagina develops weakness and laxity as a result of damage to supporting connective tissue, many women may notice the development of stress urinary incontinence. Women may find that when they cough or sneeze or even laugh, urine is involuntarily expelled. This can be a significant source of social embarrassment and can be very disabling in severe cases. Many women often suffer in silence with stress urinary incontinence thinking that it is a normal and inevitable part of giving birth but this no longer needs to be the case thanks to vaginal laser treatment at Centre for Surgery. If you have noticed that your vagina feels much looser than what it was before, or you have significant pain during sexual intercourse or you have developed vagina dryness then we would recommend you book in to see one of our expert gynaecologists for a comprehensive clinical assessment. The outcome of treatment can be truly life changing.
The main advantage of laser vagina rejuvenation is the completely non-invasive nature with no needles or scalpels of traditional surgery. Patients do not therefore incur the risks and potential complications from traditional surgical operations for vagina tightening such as bleeding, infection or scars. Women can now achieve long-term and permanent correction of their symptoms without surgery and its potential risks.
Our expert gynaecologists are highly experienced in vaginal laser treatment for vagina tightening and will be able to assess you in detail to determine your suitability for Fotona gynaecology laser treatment. Laser gynaecology treatments are not covered by private medical insurance or the NHS and patients will need to pay for the treatment themselves. The cost of laser gynaecology treatment will depend based on the type of procedure you’re having done and how many sessions have been recommended to achieve symptom control. In most cases, our gynaecologists recommend two treatments separated about 4 to 6 weeks apart. The vast majority of patients will report a significant improvement in symptoms after their first treatment.
Laser gynaecology treatment is quick to carry out, completely painless and takes no more than 30 to 45 minutes to carry out. Patients can return to their normal activities pretty much straight away and with no downtime whatsoever.
