rejuVAnate Vaginal Rejuvenation

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments - Chicago IL

For millions of women, vaginal dryness, itching or burning is a common and frustrating condition. The time has come to alleviate the discomfort and restore vaginal health. A series of (3) laser treatments may improve vaginal conditions such as:

  • painful intercourse
  • vaginal lubrication
  • itching and urination

Treatment time is about 15 minutes and should be performed every 6-weeks.

rejuVAnate (For Vagina Health)

Vulvovaginal Atrophy (VVA) with dryness and irritation, vaginal
laxity after childbirth and bladder control issues are common
conditions with great impact on female sexuality and quality of
life. rejuVAnate employs fractional CO2 energy to rejuvenate
vaginal tissues and restore function and relief of bothersome
vaginal symptoms.

What is rejuVAnate?

rejuVAnate is a novel, painless pulsed CO2 laser treatment to
vaginal tissues delivered through a special hand piece in a
procedure that takes less than 15 minutes. There is no downtime
other than 3 days vaginal “rest” post-procedure. Treatments have
been shown to improve symptoms of:
VVA (painful intercourse, dryness, itching/irritation)
Vaginal laxity
Mild urinary incontinence or mild overactive bladder

A series of 3 pulsed CO2 laser treatments spaced 4 weeks apart
have been widely regarded optimal to stimulate the vaginal
mucosa to increase collagen production, as well as to cause a
thickening of the vaginal epithelium, supporting the urinary
structures as well as improving dryness and elastic stretch of the
vaginal canal.
Improvement of troublesome vaginal and bladder symptoms
after pulsed CO2 laser promotes a better sexuality and quality of
life, especially in women who are breast cancer survivors or
otherwise not candidates for estrogen therapy.

How does rejuVAnate improve vaginal
tightening?

rejuVAnate works via pulses of laser energy into the collagen
layer of the vaginal mucus membrane, where concentrated
thermal heating leads to collagen and elastin “shrinkage” and
secondary regeneration, producing a tightening of the vaginal
tissues.
The initial shrinkage and secondary regeneration produce
improved pressure on the “G-Spot” and the clitoris. Tightening
also occurs along the base of the overlying bladder, with evidence
shows that it also improves the frustration of minor urinary
incontinence.
The result of the treatment is the complete remodeling of the
vaginal mucosa, in addition to the re-establishment of robust,
more “youthful” vaginal tissue embedded with thick and long
collagen fibers. . Patients report a noticeable tightening of the
entire vaginal canal for increased friction and pleasure during
sexual intimacy.

How does rejuVAnate improve vaginal
atrophic changes?

By altering and rearranging collagen fibers, enabling the
formation of elastin and better collagen formation, rejuVAnate
can provide long-term reversal of the atrophic effects of aging on
the vaginal walls.

How does rejuVAnate work?

A laser generator produces precise pulses which travel through a
scanner where small, fractional beams of CO2 laser energy are
delivered to vaginal tissues via a small tube-shaped hand piece.
These pulses exit through a small window in a 360º pattern
allowing treatment of the entire vaginal canal, leading to overall
tightening in the case of laxity, including tightening of the upper
vagina, producing added support for the base of the bladder. In a
different power setting, rejuVAnate may be utilized solely to
stimulate collagen and elastin formation to enable a better elastic
stretch of the vaginal tissues.

Who is a good candidate for this
procedure? Who is not?

Candidates: Women with minimal to moderate vaginal looseness
or laxity not severe enough to need a complete surgical repair
(“Vaginoplasty”), but bothersome enough (less “grip,” too much
“droop”) to diminish sexual pleasure and sometimes lead to
modest urinary incontinence. Perfect candidates are:

1 . Women who have not yet had a child but either feel
themselves “wide” inside or have a partner with a smallersized penis.
2 . Women with laxity after childbirth who plan on another
child/children and need “temporary” tightening until their
final childbirth, after which they may undergo a permanent
surgical solution.
3 . Women with mild urinary incontinence.
4 . Women with only modest vaginal laxity and decent
musculature, who wish to avoid a surgical procedure.
5 . Post-menopausal women with dry, atrophic vaginal tissues.

Not Candidates:

1 . Women with a significant pelvic floor vaginal laxity and/or
prolapse. These women need a surgical repair and will be
disappointed with a solely laser procedure.
2 . Women with significant urinary incontinence.
3 . Women with very tightened, atrophic vaginas; these women
will first need to undergo re-estrogenization and mild
mechanical dilation in order to physically accommodate the
treatment probe.

What is the science behind this
procedure?

The rejuVAnate/Phoenix laser utilizes CO2 fractional pulsed light
wave technology as a cutting, tightening or resurfacing tool. In
this instance, micro ablative laser waves at closely spaced
intervals “drill” microscopic, closely spaced micro-punctures into
the dermis, producing a mini-defect in the collagen that
contracts, producing shrinkage and stimulating the collagen and
elastin to grow, thus bulking and “rejuvenating” this layer. This
technology has been utilized in vaginal procedures in Europe and
Asia for more than 6 years, and a wealth of data has accumulated
verifying its effects and success.
Numerous observational studies reported a significant
improvement of vaginal atrophy assessed subjectively and
objectively after a cycle of three treatments of pulsed CO2 laser.
Also sexual function and quality of life significantly improved. No
complications or side-effects were reported during or after the
laser procedure that was performed in an outpatient setting.

How long does rejuVAnate last?

Present data suggest that, with 3 treatments over a 12-week time
period and especially with a “touchup” after one year, the
tightening and continence effects are experienced for at least 2-3
years or more, while the atrophic elasticity effects are ongoing
with no need for further treatments in properly managed
patients. Fractional CO2 treatments last around 4-5 years on the
face and body.
