26 x July 19 — August 1, 2018 x MATTER OF HEALTH What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation? by Lori K. Lambert, M.D. 7051 Dr. Phillips Blvd., Suite 5, Orlando • 407-363-2000 • Voted Top Doctor in Orlando 2015, 2016 & 2017 Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a therapy that helps restore tone and flexibility to the vaginal and vulvar tissues. Childbirth, menopause, certain skin conditions like vulvar dystrophy and lichen sclerosis, cancer treatment and aging can cause thinning of the vagina, called vaginal atrophy, or vulvovaginal atrophy (involving the vulva and vagina). Vaginal atrophy can lead to vaginal dryness, painful sex called dyspareunia, vaginal irritation, vaginal burning and skin discoloration of the vulva with age spots or brown spots. Laser treatment of the pelvic tissue increases collagen production, which strengthens the vagina and vulvar tissue, and improves elasticity and flexibility, as well as improving vaginal lubrication. Laser vaginal rejuvenation is one type of labiaplasty treatment that can lead to skin rejuvenation of the vagina, as well as the vulva. For women with vaginal laxity (looseness of the vagina, usually after childbirth), laser rejuvenation can improve vaginal tone and result in vaginal tightening. The laser resurfacing treatment of the vulva can minimize and/or resolve pigment changes, age spots or brown spots. Although the Juliet medical laser is not FDA-approved for the treatment of urinary issues, many women have reported an improvement in urinary urgency and urinary incontinence after treatment.
