Learn How to Maintain Your Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Results
If you’ve chosen to have laser vaginal rejuvenation therapy to improve your appearance or treat a medical condition, it’s essential to continue to care for your intimate health after the procedure.
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation uses a noninvasive laser. And while side effects are rare and patients can typically resume most daily activities almost immediately after vaginal laser treatment, below, we’ll discuss aftercare and what actions need to be postponed for a few days.
Board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Otto Huertas and the expert team at CosmeticGyn Center in Dallas, TX perform the most advanced vaginal rejuvenation procedures available and can answer all your questions about aftercare.
What does laser vaginal rejuvenation treat?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is best known as a vaginal tightening treatment sought out after childbirth or menopause, but it can also help treat:
Pain during sex
Recurring urinary tract infections
Stress urinary incontinence
Vaginal dryness and itchiness
Vaginal tissue atrophy (a condition where the lining of the vagina gets drier and thinner)
How nonsurgical vaginal laser treatment works
After a consultation at CosmeticGyn Center in Dallas, TX, patients will build a treatment plan that addresses their goals with Dr. Huertas. Dr. Huertas performs a cosmetic procedure called Designer Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® (DLVR).
During the procedure, which generally takes 1 – 2 hours, a noninvasive laser promotes the body’s natural collagen production by heating vaginal tissue. While this might sound uncomfortable, the procedure is not considered painful, and most patients report a slight tingling sensation.
There may be redness, swelling, or discomfort in the area over the next 2 – 3 days, but this is normal, and your physician will be there every step of the way to ensure your comfort.
Recovery after laser vaginal rejuvenation therapy
Noninvasive vaginal laser treatment requires no downtime, but there are some activities to avoid in the days following treatment to let the body heal.
Avoid the following in the 2 – 3 days after laser vaginal rejuvenation:
Exposing the treated area to direct sunlight
Taking a bath (showering is fine)
It’s normal to have a slight vaginal discharge in the three days following treatment, as well as a mild warming sensation inside the vaginal canal or at the site of treatment.
While some conditions require just one treatment, if the symptoms you’re treating are severe, you may need a series of three treatments. These can be performed four weeks apart.
Maintaining results following vaginal laser treatment
Laser vaginal rejuvenation results can last for years. However, they cannot stop time, so while they may seem to turn back the clock, the effects of aging will continue. Pregnancy, menopause, hormonal changes, and other traumas or medical conditions can interfere with maintaining some results.
