Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Women are becoming more bold and confident in speaking about their bodies. Dr. Khatri of Skin & Laser Surgery Center of New England offers procedures that improve a woman’s confidence and sexual pleasure, including vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty. Though both of them focus on a woman’s intimate parts, they target different areas. Vaginal Rejuvenation tightens the opening of the vagina and the vaginal canal, while labiaplasty sculpts and/or reshapes the labia.
“Dr. Khatri and his staff are quite an extraordinary group of people. Dr. Khatri goes to great lengths in order to ensure his patients’ comfort and care. I have been seeing Dr. Khatri for over five years and not once have I been disappointed with his work. His staff is so friendly and attentive to all your needs. I most certainly would recommend Dr. Khatri and Skin and Laser Surgery Center to those in need.” -Aleena
Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQS
Why Is Vaginal Rejuvenation So Important?
Vaginal rejuvenation has become an important procedure through which women can regain what has diminished through pregnancy and the aging process. The supportive structure and narrow diameter of the vaginal canal may change after childbirth, or in response to biological changes. Vaginal atrophy also instigates urinary incontinence, in which urine may accidentally leak during a sneeze, a cough, or a laugh. With the CO2RE Intima, Dr. Khatri is able to provide ideal vaginal rejuvenation with no pain, leaving his patients pleased with their results.
Candidates for Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
You may be a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation if you experience any of the following:
- If the structures of your vagina have stretched or otherwise altered as a result of childbirth and/or aging
- You experience soreness or pain during sexual activity, when riding a bike, or when horseback riding
- If you experience reduced sensation during vaginal intercourse as a result of multiple vaginal deliveries
What to expect from the Vaginal Rejuvenation Process
Upon your first consultation with Dr. Khatri, he will tailor an individual treatment plan for you based on your needs and current condition. Most patients receive 3 treatment sessions scheduled once a week, most of the time showing results after a single treatment. Your results will continue to improve as you continue with treatments. If you have any additional questions, you can ask them during your consultation.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Before and After
How Does laser vaginal rejuvenation Work?
One of the many laser treatments offered by the Skin & Laser Surgery Center of New England is laser vaginal rejuvenation. Laser vaginal rejuvenation uses a specifically designed laser device to promote increased blood flow and collagen production throughout the vaginal canal. Treatment is conducted at the office and begins with a minor pelvic exam. The laser probe is then inserted into the vaginal canal where energy penetrates approximately .5 mm into the vaginal mucosa. This depth is necessary for collagen rebuilding, and collagen rebuilding is necessary for a firmer tissue.
What is labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a minor surgical procedure that contours the external genitalia in order to create symmetry or to reduce size. Sometimes, the labia minora hangs below the labia majora. This may cause a woman to feel dissatisfied with the appearance of this area of her body. It may also pose clear and present physical discomfort with clothing, or embarrassment in public.
The Labiaplasty Surgery
Dr. Khatri may adjust the size and shape of the labia using a wedge excision, or an edge excision. The wedge excision removes a triangle-shape of tissue, whereas the edge excision modifies tissue from the edges.
