Clear Sky Medical is offering Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) that can help with Urinary Stress Incontinence, improve Painful Intercourse and Vaginal Dryness and Atrophy and Vaginal Looseness caused by childbirth.
What is LVR (Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation)?
The V-Lase is a vaginal laser treatment similar to the FemiLift or Mona Lisa touch. These technologies are known as LVR or LVT. They rejuvenate and tighten vaginal tissue and surrounding tissues using CO2 Laser energy.
The tightening of vaginal tissue has a number of good effects including increased lubrication, improvement or full correction of urinary stress incontinence, treatment of mild cystoceles and improved gratification during intercourse. LVT procedures began in Italy years ago and were based on similar laser treatments used to tighten skin on the face.
It is common for the bladder, rectum and pelvic floor muscles to become damaged after childbirth while there is also a permanent increase in the distance between the Kegal muscles and the muscles of the perineum. LVT is a non-surgical solution will help shrink vaginal skin.
Is V-Lase right for me?
It is unfortunate that many women suffer quietly from the effects of vaginal atrophy. This condition results in inflammation and drying of vaginal walls while the tissue thins. Relationships are affected as intercourse becomes painful and pelvic muscles weaken causing involuntary release of urine. Many women who have had multiple pregnancies suffer from vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) which can also benefit from V-Lase.
Symptoms of vaginal atrophy:
- Inflammation of vaginal walls
- Dryness and lack of lubercation
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain during intercourse
Causes of vaginal atrophy:
- Cancer treatments and medications
- Dryness caused by low “E” from Breastfeeding
V-Lase is great for urinary stress incontinence. This condition is very common and results in involuntary release of urine during any activity that puts stress on the bladder area. Laughing, coughing, sneezing and lifting heavy things can all cause an embarrassing release of urine. This condition is caused by the weakening of the pelvic muscles due to low estrogen levels. These key muscles support your bladder and control the release of urine.
When hormones change at menopause many women suffer from vaginal atrophy. V-Lase is not only good for post menopausal women, but it is good for women who have undergone cancer treatments, or are involved in breastfeeding as these also cause a reduction in estrogen production.
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.
How V-Lase Works
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.
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.
