Vaginal Rejuvenation - Why and When?
For many, “vaginal rejuvenation treatment” can sound equal parts confusing, embarrassing, and intimidating. After initially learning of the phrase, a couple of obvious questions arise. The first is typically “why?”, and the following is usually “when?” In an effort to clear the air a little, let’s take a closer look at what vaginal rejuvenation treatment entails and determine whether or not it’s right for you.
Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty
Vaginal rejuvenation commonly refers to one or a combination of the following: vaginoplasty and labiaplasty. The former is ordinarily reserved for constructive or reconstructive purposes, as opposed to aesthetic or cosmetic. On the other hand, the results of labiaplasty are generally much more visible and the surgery is often undergone for both cosmetic and reconstructive reasons.
Labiaplasty involves alterations done to the folds of skin (labia majora/outer and labia minora/inner) that surround the vulva. It can be undergone in an effort to alter or reconstruct labial size and shape, correct asymmetry, and provide relief for any number of discomforts that occur over time.
Despite the prevalence of plastic surgery throughout Orange County (as well as the entire U.S.), labiaplasty is not a frequent subject of public discussion and certainly isn’t casual dinner table conversation. As a result, many women are left unsure or confused about the entire process. This is an unfortunate circumstance, as personal and/or medical issues with the labia and vagina are very normal and are nothing to be ashamed of. Due to the lack of quality information surrounding these common discomforts, women often feel needlessly embarrassed to even bring up the topic. The reality is, labiaplasty is a very routine procedure and thousands of women undergo it every year for a wide variety of reasons.
CO2RE Intima is a new, in-office, non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to treat the symptoms women may be experiencing. CO2RE Intima is a medical laser that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance.
