When is laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment recommended?
The SmaXel laser treatment is a non-invasive therapy that rejuvenates and regenerates the female genitalia without surgery at any age. The vagina can lose its plasticity after pregnancy and childbirth or as a result of hormone deficiency or other health conditions. Apart from aesthetic concerns, it may result in urine retention issues or sexual problems. Laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment helps to restore the elasticity of connective tissue, and consequently eliminate the above problems.
A consultation with our gynaecologist is essential before you undergo laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Our specialist assesses your complaints and discusses with you what to expect from the procedure, working out a suitable treatment schedule. Should you ask for various issues to be treated at the same time, the specialist possibly recommends a combined treatment – such as vaginal tightening and labiaplasty. An average course of laser treatment is usually 2-3 appointments, provided that your recent cancer screening was negative.
The treatment itself takes 20-30 minutes and requires no special preparations. The state of the art SmaXel laser medical equipment is programmed according to the specifications that best suit your personal treatment: your doctor determines the thermal zone and how deep the laser should penetrate the tissue. The energy rays only affect a number of points on the vaginal wall and not the whole area, and the treatment is completely painless.
What to expect from laser vaginal treatment?
Thanks to its thermal effect the SmaXel laser tightens connective tissues and stimulates the collagen fibres that give the skin and tissues elasticity. Affected cells start regenerating and replacing the traumatised ones immediately, making the vaginal wall thicker and stronger, restoring the youthful plasticity of the reproductive organs. Strong collagen fibres can now provide adequate support for the urinary bladder, which will function normally once again. Laser treatment is effectively tightening the vagina, rejuvenating and improving the aesthetic appearance of both the labia minora and majora, eliminating urinary incontinence, and improving your sex life. It takes a few weeks for the treatment to take effect, when collagen fibres start to reproduce. The positive change is apparent after 2-3 months and, depending on your age, may last for several years.
Recovery and post treatment
Laser vaginal therapy needs no special post treatment, although you are advised to refrain from sex and a sitting bath for 7 days. Skin irritation is a rare and temporary side effect that quickly subsides without a trace. If need be, a maintenance treatment may be advisable within a year.
