As women grow older, the collagen fibers in the vagina can weaken. This can cause the vagina to lose its elasticity. Just like how cosmetic laser procedures have been used for years to enhance facial features and restore a youthful glow, our CO2 Laser can do the same thing to the tissues of the vagina.
The vaginal wall's loss of elasticity as well as its overall tightness can cause many women to suffer from conditions such as:
These conditions can affect many aspects of a woman’s life. Such as a woman's confidence, overall quality of life, and making it hard to engage in everyday activities. Our Fraxis Duo CO2 laser can be used as a non-surgical alternative to invasive vaginal tightening surgery.
Performed by one of Dr. Tieche’s female providers, it is a quick procedure that usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes, and is used to treat disorders involving sexual health, vagina dryness, and incontinence. Our CO2 Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation procedure stimulates collagen production to repair any damage to the mucosa walls of the cervix, improve the muscle tone and tissue structure, and enhance the function of the vaginal walls.
The CO2 Laser painlessly acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner tool that omits microscopic laser energy beams. The laser uses thermal energy to act on the tissue layers of the vaginal walls, known as the vaginal epithelium, in microscopic columns. This thermal energy causes contraction of existing collagen fibers and stimulates neocollagenesis, which is the production of new collagen, to reorganize and balance all of the components of the vaginal mucosa and the urogenital structures. This treatment requires no anesthesia or downtime.
It is important for patients to avoid sexual intercourse for one to two weeks following treatment. Recharge Clinic recommends anywhere from three to five consecutive sessions, each spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to ensure proper healing and desired results. Some results are seen almost instantly after treatment and some will be noticed in the weeks following.
While every woman responds differently to treatment, you can expect results to last anywhere from 9-18 months. Maintenance treatments can safely and effectively be done as necessary to prolong the outcome of your initial treatment sessions. It has changed the lives of many women by addressing these sensitive concerns, which in the past could only be corrected with invasive, major surgeries. This laser procedure is highly effective and minimally invasive, helping women discretely treat their conditions to regain their self-confidence in the bedroom and in daily activities.
