Non Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Until recently very few women discussed the intimate makeup of their bodies. Many were hesitant to discuss common problems or issues, such as losing urine when they sneezed or loss of sensation during intercourse, even with their gynecologist or primary care physician. Today women are becoming aware of just how common these issues are – and that they can be reversed through non surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
Giving birth, frequent sexual intercourse and the natural aging process are all factors that result in a loosening of the vaginal walls and a loss of muscular strength in those intimate areas. As we age our bodies produce less collagen within the vaginal walls. The thinning of these walls often results in a loss of sensation, sexual satisfaction, and can increase urinary stress incontinence issues as the support for the bladder muscles is reduced. These are all very common and treatable issues for women in their mid-thirties and up and should be discussed with your physician.
Many physicians will recommend Kegel exercises to treat the onset of these symptoms. However, some studies have found that Kegel exercises are minimally effective for most women. Surgical procedures may be recommended in extreme cases, with all the risks of any surgery, and can take up to 6 weeks recovery time.
In 2014 the Femilift® Laser was introduced as a non surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Lasers have been used to increase collagen production in the face and other areas of the body for over 10 years. This specialized laser brought an innovative and safe non surgical vaginal rejuvenation option to women. By using a specialized application a trained and certified doctor treats all of the walls along the length of the vaginal as well as the urethral opening. This painless procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and patients can return to regular sexual activity within a day or two. The laser treatment stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and within a few weeks of treatment results experienced including a tighter vagina, reduced or eliminated urine loss during activity, and increased sexual sensation. For some women multiple treatments may be recommended to get the full level of improvement they desire.
Along with a thriving OB/GYN practice for over 30 years before retiring from that specialty, Dr. Harry Collins is trained and certified in use of the FemiLift Laser and worked directly with Dr. David Matlock (“Dr. 90210”) at the world-renowned Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Los Angeles. By offering a non surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment, Dr. Harry Collins has changed the lives of many of his female patients. Women who come to Dr. Collins for laser vaginal rejuvenation report that sexual intimacy feels like it did in their younger, pre-childbirth days. They feel more confident about their bodies and have a more satisfying sexual experience.
In most cases, non surgical laser rejuvenation offers patients a safe and effective alternative to surgery with minimal risks, no down time and no risk of infection.
