Energy-based treatments are nonsurgical procedures that are performed for cosmetic reasons or to solve age-related conditions, such as lack of vaginal tightness and urinary incontinence. Two main types of energy-based treatments such as radiofrequency or laser energy provides a non-surgical option for vaginal rejuvenation.
Laser-based treatment usually entails the use of the Fractional CO2 or Nd:YAG laser. By emitting pulses of laser energy into the vaginal tissue, damaging the surface of the skin and enables the body to repair. Through the healing process, collagen production is stimulated. This helps to tighten the vagina, improve lubrication, and can also help in urinary incontinence.
Unlike RF, laser-based treatment would require a minimal recovery period of a few days and requires patients to abstain from sexual intercourse after every treatment. Usually about 3 sessions.
