Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term for vaginal corrective treatments
These procedures can be done for cosmetic reasons or to solve age-related problems, such as lack of vaginal tightness and urinary incontinence. Energy-based treatments provide a non-surgical option for vaginal rejuvenation.
Over time, not only external changes occur in a woman’s body but also changes in the external genitalia. Especially from the age of 40 onwards and as a woman approaches menopause, there is thinning of the vaginal mucosa, loss of elasticity, reduction of lubrication, relaxation, and gradual loss of volume and firmness of the external genitalia. These phenomena worsen considerably after menopause. For example, vaginal atrophy causes dryness, itching, discomfort, and sometimes pain during intercourse. All these components affect not only the psychology of the woman but also the relationship with her partner. The “non-surgical” vaginal rejuvenation treatments are safe and not at all time-consuming. The genital area heals extremely quickly and patients return to their activities immediately.
What do they offer?
These treatments are suitable for women who want to improve the appearance of their external genitalia, but also to feel better during sex. These treatments are suitable for women with:
1. Vaginal dryness
2. Discomfort or pain in the vagina
3. Vaginal relaxation syndrome
The new treatments for vaginal rejuvenation and gynecological problems
1. PRP (Platelet – Rich Plasma) therapy for vaginal regeneration
Autologous treatment with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), is a modern medical proposal for tissue regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is an autologous biological agent that contributes naturally to the regeneration and hydration of tissues, with the aim of renewing the vagina that shows symptoms of atrophy.
PRP treatment in vaginal rejuvenation
Platelet-rich plasma is a promising new biological solution for vaginal regeneration. Studies have shown that the success rate of PRP treatment for vaginal renewal is 85-90%. The procedure is performed with the blood which is collected from the patient’s arm and then placed and processed in special protocol devices, in order to separate its components. After isolating the platelet-rich plasma, it is collected and injected into specific areas of the vagina. With the infusion of PRP, the stem cells proliferate and the younger tissues grow, resulting in collagen genesis. Day by day the vagina hydrated, the skin in the vagina becomes softer and more youthful.
The method is completely safe, as the blood used is the patient’s own and thus is not at risk of communicable diseases, while at the same time it is immunologically neutral and there is no risk of allergic reactions or hypersensitivity.
There is no need for recovery time and the return to sex life is immediate.
As local anesthesia is performed in the vaginal area, the treatment is completely painless.
This treatment effectively treats female sexual dysfunction and lack of orgasms due to vaginal dryness and atrophy.
Autologous PRP treatment has impressive, almost immediate results thanks to the increase of the aesthetics and the stimulation of the clitoris, the enhancement of the natural lubrication of the vagina, and of course, the reduction of the pain during sex in those women who suffer from insomnia.
2. Hyaluronic acid treatment for tightening and firmness of the vagina
A well-known and widely used material for facial treatments, hyaluronic acid, now provides solutions in the genital area as it contributes to the firmness and elasticity of the tissues. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of the skin and mucous membranes that help the skin stay soft, firm, and hydrated. Over time, however, this component decreases. This reduction results in atrophy of the vaginal mucosa as well as atrophy of the labia majora. The hyaluronic acid process is injected with a fine needle, completely superficially at the entrance of the vagina and its posterior wall to attract water from the skin of the vagina and moisturize it(vaginal rejuvenation). The acid moisturizes the surface, thus regulating the pH of the skin. In this way, women now have painless intercourse, without having the feeling of discomfort, ie pain during sexual intercourse.
This is a simple and painless technique that does not require local anesthesia.
Hyaluronic acid respects the pH of the vagina, which changes during menopause.
This method is very effective for women with:
- chronic pain
- discomfort during sexual intercourse
- increased chance of vaginitis and urinary tract infection.
- relaxation (from childbirth, great weight loss)
- atrophy (due to menopause)
3. Laser Treatments (Er: YAG Laser) for vaginal rejuvenation
The Er: YAG Laser treatment(Erbium laser treatments) are in line with the modern era as they are simple, painless non-invasive, and economical for this and are constantly gaining ground in the consciousness of patients.
IntimaLase Treatment – Laser Vaginal Tightening (for Vaginal Tightening)
Vaginal relaxation no longer requires painful, bloody surgical approaches. Aiming directly at the vaginal mucosa and the collagen-rich intrapelvic fascia, the Er: Yag Laser stimulates the remodeling and synthesis (neogenesis) of new collagen fibers by achieving tightening of the vaginal wall from the first session
- Stimulates the restructuring and reconstruction of collagen
- It is done without surgical incisions
- It is bloodless and painless
- It is done without anesthesia
- No hospitalization required
- It is safe, fast, and effective
- It has high success rates and patient satisfaction
RenovaLase therapy – Vaginal atrophy laser treatment (for the treatment of atrial atrophy)
Over the years and the inevitable decrease in estrogen in menopause but also during menopause, the majority of women experience the consequences of vaginal atrophy. Also, atrophy can occur in certain pathological conditions such as prolonged treatment of chronic infections of the genetic area, disorders of the balance of the vaginal flora and the pH of the vagina, and mental disorders. To date, the only effective treatment for vaginal atrophy has been hormonal with the use of estrogen with all the limitations of hormone replacement therapy (limited duration of administration, contraindication to a history of breast cancer, etc.).
The use of Er: YAG Laser came to change the data so far, as with the gentle and controlled heating of the vaginal mucosa it stimulates neo-angiogenesis, fibroblast action, and collagen synthesis. All this without causing burns or irreparable damage to the area. The end result is an increase in the thickness of the vaginal epithelium and the rich perspiration of the nerve endings and sensory receptors of the basal layer, which reduces the symptoms of dryness, itching, “pulling”, “nibs” and insomnia.
Also, the treatment of atrophy optimizes the results of the treatment of Vaginal Relaxation and Urinary Incontinence.
In summary, the Er: Yag Laser has a place in the treatment of Vaginal Atrophy Syndrome:
- Dealing with the symptoms of atrophy
- Through phototherapy of the vaginal canal
- Functional restoration of the vaginal mucosa
- Offering a safe treatment option without the long-term use of estrogen
- Without surgery
- Without anesthesia
- Painless, bloodless
- No hospitalization
Incontilase Treatment -Stress Urinary Incontinence Laser Treatment (for the treatment of urinary incontinence)
Incontilase treatment is a pioneering and unique, non-invasive Er: YAG laser treatment for urinary incontinence. The treatment is based on the effect of the heat produced by the Er: Yag laser on the vaginal mucosa of the urethra and its sphincter area, as well as on the area of the anterior vaginal wall. Studies show that neo-collagen genesis and the rearrangement of collagen fibers lead to the tightening of the area and return to the normal function of the sphincter mechanism of the urethra. The results are optimized with the parallel treatment of atrophy achieved with the use of Laser.
A light treatment with Er: Yag Laser helps in the treatment of mild to moderate incontinence:
- Tightening of the vagina in the area around the urethra and the anterior wall of the bladder
- No surgery required
- It is done without anesthesia
- It is painless and bloodless
- No hospitalization required
- It has high success rates.
