Vaginal Tightening & Stress Urinary Incontinence Correction (lasers / Radio frequency)
Energy based devices are used for treatment of mild Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome (VRS), by applying their photo thermal effect on the vaginal mucosa, inducing collage synthesis and shrinkage, causing temporary vaginal mucosa tightening and urinary incontinence correction.
In age related vulvo-vaginal atrophy, energy based devices have a beneficial effect on the vulva structures and vagina, by increasing blood flow causing local tissue rejuvenation, tightening, increased lubrication around the vulva, labia, vagina, urethra and perineum. These procedures are minimal invasive, incision-less, non ablative vaginal procedure, with no bleeding, no pain, no hospital stay, and no recovery period.
Laser, Radio Frequency and HIFU are alternative modality used for certain cases, they are minimal invasive methods with temporary effects in treatment of mild vaginal widening and mild stress urinary incontinence. Its effectiveness is less than vaginal reconstructive surgery and other stress incontinence treatments, needs two to three sessions, and should be repeated every year to retain the effects. They are relatively safe procedures when performed by a capable professional, dispite the FDA warning of vaginal pain and complications.
Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy Rejuvenation & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP):
In post menopausal women, the vulva and vaginal lose their tight look and integrity due to hormonal deprivation. The vagina becomes dry, wide, sensation minimal, and sexual experience becomes painful and undesirable; the vulva skin also becomes loose and chapped.
Laser, Radio Frequency, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), produce vaginal thermal therapy to the genital area enhancing lubrication, vaginal & vulva skin tightening, and improved sexual desire and sensation. The addition of Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) therapy injection adds to the benefits of tissue rejuvenation, stems cell stimulation and enhances orgasmic capacity.
Laser / Elman RF Vaginal Surgery:
Surgical lasers and Radio Frequency devices have been used as a cutting tool for precision labial and vaginal reconstructive surgery. They cause less bleeding by cauterizing the wound edges, and are FDA approved for vaginal surgery and wart removal. We have found no extra benefits in using lasers or RF compared with tradition surgery.
