What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

As women age, especially during and after menopause, many experience a condition known as vaginal atrophy. Characterised by thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls, vaginal atrophy can lead to discomfort, pain during intercourse, and a host of other symptoms that affect a woman's quality of life.


Vaginal atrophy, also referred to as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), occurs due to the decrease in estrogen levels that accompanies menopause. This hormonal change leads to reduced blood flow, collagen production, and moisture in the vaginal tissues, causing them to become thin, dry, and less elastic.


Symptoms of vaginal atrophy can include vaginal dryness, burning or itching, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), urinary symptoms such as urgency, as well as frequent infections. These symptoms can significantly impact a woman's intimate relationships and overall well-being, making effective treatments essential.


Fortunately, advancements in medical technology offer new hope. One such innovative solution is laser therapy, which has shown promising results in alleviating the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.


Our Vaginal Rejuvenation involves the use of a specialised laser device to gently heat the vaginal tissues. This procedure stimulates collagen production and enhances blood flow, promoting the regeneration of healthy tissue. These lasers are designed to target the vaginal mucosa without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.


Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not require incisions or surgery and typically takes less than 30 minutes.


By stimulating collagen production and increasing blood flow, laser therapy helps restore the vaginal mucosa's thickness and elasticity. This can lead to significant improvements in symptoms such as dryness, burning, and discomfort during intercourse.


Many women report a more comfortable and enjoyable sexual experience following laser therapy. The reduction in pain and improvement in vaginal lubrication can enhance intimacy and overall quality of life.


While the number of sessions required can vary, many women experience lasting relief from symptoms after completing a series of treatments. Maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the benefits.


Laser therapy is associated with minimal side effects, which are typically mild and temporary. Some women may experience slight redness, swelling, or discharge for a few days following the procedure.


Vaginal Rejuvenation is an excellent option for women seeking a non-hormonal, non-invasive treatment to alleviate their symptoms. If you're experiencing the discomfort of vaginal atrophy, speak with Dr Kelly about whether our Vaginal Rejuvenation laser therapy could be the right solution for you.
