Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Laser technology has revolutionized vaginal rejuvenation without the need for invasive surgery or medications. This ground-breaking technology restores vaginal structure and function after aging, childbearing, excessive weight loss, breast cancer treatment, or a hysterectomy.

What are the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation?

Regardless of the cause, vaginal laxity makes it difficult to enjoy sexual intercourse to its fullest. Innovative vaginal rejuvenation using laser technology helps:

  • Shrink and tighten vaginal tissue
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Increase vaginal lubrication
  • Reduce urinary incontinence
  • Improve enjoyment in the bedroom
  • Reduce painful intercourse
  • Normalize blood flow
  • Boost immune resistance
  • Restore strength and elasticity to vaginal walls
  • Improve the function of the entire vaginal area

Your provider reviews your medical history and completes a thorough examination to determine if you’re a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation or another cosmetic gynecological procedure.

Which laser technology works best?

The cosmetic gynecologists at Marina OB/GYN use the FemiLift® laser system for vaginal rejuvenation. Treatment takes just 30 minutes, is pain-free, and does not require anesthesia. Dr. Lipeles or Dr. Vermaire places a disposable sheath over a laser wand that emits pulses deep into vaginal tissue and gently heats it.

After the procedure, you can immediately return to normal everyday activities but must refrain from sexual intercourse for several days. This is a major improvement over surgical vaginal rejuvenation that requires 4-6 weeks of recovery time and abstinence. To maximize results, your cosmetic gynecologist might recommend a series of laser treatments once a month for three months.
