Vaginal atrophy is a common condition caused by menopause and cancer treatments. Many doctors have moved to laser treatments as an option for women suffering from the effects of the condition which include dryness, urinary incontinence and pain during intercourse. Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) is an easier option than going to a plastic surgeon for invasive methods.
How does V-Lase and other forms of LVR work?
Many doctors have moved to laser treatments in place of using invasive methods. In this case the laser energy pulses delivered to the vaginal tissue heat the collagen within. Collagen immediately contracts under the heat and it’s fibers become shorter and thicker. The stimulation of the collagen results in neocollagenesis which means that new collagen enriches the vaginal tissue. The tissue becomes tighter, younger and more elastic.
Collagen is a protein that keeps our bodies young and resilient. This long fibrous structure is what keeps tendons, ligaments and skin together and is found in all parts of our body. Collagen has great tensile strength and is used to keep our veins strong and cartilage semi-rigid. Its role is important in keeping our skin tight and so we have developed laser treatments that stimulate collagen on important parts of our body. Clear Sky Medical has for years offered micro fractional CO2 laser treatments and JuvaShape treatments to improve the youthfulness of the skin.
Vaginoplasty vs. V-Lase
The V-Lase is a minimally invasive and a lower cost option than vaginoplasty. In vaginoplasty surgeons work with the muscles and material under the skin to cut and rearrange vaginal and peripheral tissue. Typically it costs $ 4,500 to 11,000 for a vaginoplasty. If you do choose a vaginoplasty it’s important to choose a good surgeon as there are plenty of horror stories involving low-cost procedures. The benefits of V-Lase over vaginoplasty include no downtime, no pain and its a great solution for women who want to spend dramatically less than on surgery.
V-Lase consists of three easy treatments at Clear Sky Medical. Past patients have compared the treatments to a Pap Smear and it can easily be done on someones lunch break.
