Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) is defined as laxity of the vaginal wall. It can result in loss of friction and sexual satisfaction for both a woman and her partner. The most common cause of vaginal relaxation is overstretching of the vaginal wall during childbirth, which can increase with the number of births. Other causes are congenital connective tissue weakness and natural aging.
How does it work?
- The laser treatment has a photo thermal heating effect on collagen in both the vaginal walls and the urethra which causes restructuring and re growth of the collagen. The result is thickening and tightening of the vaginal walls and urethra to help reduce urine loss.
What can I expect during the treatment?
- The non-surgical treatment takes approximately 15 minutes and can be done in a doctor’s office. A special attachment, similar to a speculum as used during a pap test, is inserted into the vagina, during which the entire vaginal region is treated with short laser pulses. Some women may feel a little heat during the treatment but many say the feeling is manageable.
What can I expect post treatment?
- You can leave immediately after the treatment and continue your daily routine. Sexual intercourse is not recommended for 1 week after the procedure.
95% of women experienced a more than moderate level of vaginal tightening. *
