The aging process and menopause can produce a number of unwanted changes in the vagina. Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation treatments at Baldone Reina Dermatology can help you restore the vaginal tissue in order to decrease incontinence and enhance intimacy. We offer this treatment to women living in Slidell, New Orleans, Covington and Mandeville, LA.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is an advanced, minimally-invasive solution to vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence. The vaginal rejuvenation treatment uses gentle laser energy to tighten vaginal tissue and stimulate collagen production. As collagen increases, the body uses it to strengthen and restore the tissues and muscles in the vaginal region. Using the Fotona laser system, vaginal rejuvenation can provide the following benefits:
- Increased natural lubrication
- Reduction in symptoms of incontinence
- Tighter feeling in the vagina
- Increased libido and sexual gratification
- Reduction in discomfort or pain during intercourse
How Much Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost?
If you choose to elect vaginal rejuvenation treatment at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach to your vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Once these variables are considered, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Like?
The vaginal rejuvenation treatment is comfortable and requires no anesthetic. First, we will insert a clear tube into the vaginal canal. This tube protects the vagina from coming into direct contact with the laser device, and also ensures that laser energy is distributed evenly. Then, the Fotona laser hand piece is inserted into the tube where it will emit laser energy to the surrounding vaginal tissue. After the interior of the vagina is treated, we will briefly apply treatment to the vulva to complete the procedure. A vaginal rejuvenation treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Vaginal Rejuvenation?
After vaginal rejuvenation, you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. However, you will need to abstain from intercourse, the use of tampons and exercise for a short time to allow the vaginal tissue to heal. We will provide you with specific instructions during your consultation so you are well-prepared for the brief recovery process.
When Will I Notice Results from Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The vaginal rejuvenation treatment produces results gradually, and they become more noticeable with additional treatments. We typically recommend a series of two to four treatments, each spaced about one month apart. With this treatment plan, patients tend to notice results about two months after their initial treatment. The full results become noticeable within six months of treatment and can last for years.
