Am I a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation?
The women’s health experts at FemSculpt™ determine if you’re a good candidate for laser vaginal revitalization during a consultation. You may want to consider scheduling an appointment with the women’s health experts to discuss laser vaginal revitalization if you’re experiencing:
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during intercourse
- Mild stress urinary incontinence
- Chronic urinary tract infections
Pregnancy, aging, and hormonal changes can lead to the development of these symptoms. Vaginal delivery trauma can also impair vaginal health and function. Changes to your vaginal tissue may strain your intimate relationship, as well as your self-confidence.
What can I expect during vaginal rejuvenation treatment?
The team performs your laser vaginal revitalization treatment at the office. During the procedure, you sit with your knees bent, similar to what you would expect during a pelvic exam. Then, the laser wand is inserted into your vagina and activated to get the desired tissue results. You may feel pressure or mild discomfort during the laser treatment, but no pain.
You may experience some redness and swelling following vaginal revitalization treatment, but these side effects should subside within a few days. You may need to take it easy for a day or so following your treatment and refrain from sexual intercourse for two to three days, but you should be back to your usual activities soon after treatment.
What can I expect after vaginal rejuvenation treatment?
Despite the side effects, you should experience an improvement in your symptoms very soon after your initial treatment. To get the best results, the team at FemSculpt recommends three laser treatments set at six-week intervals with annual touch-ups to maintain results.
