About Vaginal Rejuvenation
Through the side effects of menopause, aging, and childbirth, the tissue and/or skin of the inner and outer vagina can become lax, and the internal tissues dry, causing functional difficulties. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Syneron CO2RE Intima utilizes a CO2 fractional laser to tighten the inside of the vagina while improving and rejuvenating the tissues. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation stimulates the growth of collagen, which in turn strengthens the vaginal mucosa increasing resilience and elasticity. These improvements treat symptoms, like sexual dysfunction, vaginal dryness, and stress incontinence. As well, treatment of the external vaginal tissues improves skin laxity and discoloration creating a more youthful appearance. Fractional laser treatment is an excellent, noninvasive choice to cosmetically improve the appearance of the vagina and address potential medical conditions. To find out more about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michele Sasmor at RiverSong Plastic Surgery in Newburyport, MA.
You could be a great candidate for nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation if you are interested in addressing vaginal issues or appearance,and you are not interested in undergoing surgery. This procedure strengthens your vaginal canal, improves urinary control, increases natural moisture and lubrication, decreases sexual discomfort, and enhances sexual arousal and climax. The procedure provides marked results with very minimal downtime. Most patients return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation can be performed in-office in around 30 minutes. Topical anesthesia is required for treatment of the external tissues, not the internal tissues. At the time of the procedure, a wand applicator will be used to treat the exterior of your labia and vulvar tissues. A one-time use, disposable handpiece will be inserted into your vagina to treat the internal tissues. The handpiece directs the CO2 laser light to the internal tissues to stimulate collagen, which rejuvenates the tissue. Each handpiece is discarded after use to ensure optimal cleanliness from patient to patient.
What to Expect
Recovery is rapid following the nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure. You may return to your everyday activities upon the conclusion of the treatment. However, no intercourse is suggested for 1 week as well as no use of tampons. Externally treated tissues may be sensitive to 3-4 days with activities such a bicycle riding. For maximal results, Dr. Sasmor highly recommends initially three treatments spaced 1-monthapart. Many of our patients notice results after the first or second session, while some may not notice them for up to three months following the initial 3 procedures. Dr. Sasmor recommends annual follow-up treatments to maintain improvement.

Does laser vaginal rejuvenation work?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation can improve vaginal laxity. It may also help with overall sexual dysfunction due to dryness, looseness, and other issues. It may also help improve the aesthetic look and feel. More and more women are turning to this procedure because of its outstanding outcomes and minimal recovery downtime.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation treat loose skin?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is recommended for women who seek a higher degree of vaginal tightness within the vaginal walls. Events, such as childbirth, massive weight loss, or even aging, can strain the internal muscles and create laxity, which can be improved with laser treatment. Women who have loose skin, such as an oversized or stretched labia minora, may be better candidates for a surgical procedure, such as labiaplasty. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes the excess skin along the inner labia for more comfort and a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
Can I combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with other procedures?
New moms and weight loss patients alike commonly combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with other treatments to correct conditions that can result from similar events. That is why certain procedures, such as the mommy makeover, may include a tummy tuck, breast lift, and vaginal tightening for a full-body rejuvenation. Labiaplasty and laser vaginal tightening are often combined as well to correct function while improving the appearance of the vagina at the same time. There are many factors to consider and numerous combination approaches to help attain the right result.

During your consultation, we will discuss with you how many sessions it will take to get the best results. There is no pain or downtime associated with the use of this laser.

We do recommend refraining from using tampons or engaging in sexual intercourse for 1 week after the treatment to allow the treated area to properly heal.
