Age, pregnancy, and childbirth can all lead to changes in vaginal function, and those changes can make it difficult to enjoy intimacy with your partner.

Numerous factors can alter the tissues in your vaginal walls. The aging process is a significant cause of those changes. As you age the tissues in your vaginal walls begin to thin. That can make vaginal intercourse painful, and those tissues can tear easily.
Vaginal moisture levels also tend to decline with age. Without that natural lubrication, sex can become uncomfortable. Over time, it’s possible to begin associating intimacy with discomfort, which can get in the way of a healthy bond with your partner.
Pregnancy and childbirth also take a toll. While your vaginal walls have an astounding ability to stretch during childbirth, that process can have lasting effects. You might notice those changes right away, or they may become apparent as you age.
Vaginal revitalization works by delivering carefully controlled laser energy to your vaginal tissues. Family Practice of Suntree and Viera uses the Juliet™ laser from CuteraⓇ to stimulate your body’s innate healing powers.
Treatments deliver two passes of energy to create optimal results without overtaxing your tissues. The system uses special technology to ensure the outermost tissue layers remain at a comfortable temperature.
As your body creates new tissue to repair the perceived damage, your vaginal walls grow thicker, giving you an additional layer of protection from tears and abrasion. Treatments also trigger improved vaginal moisture levels.
Vaginal revitalization is not a painful process. A thoughtfully designed treatment wand is inserted into your vagina.
The system then begins delivering laser energy. You may feel a warming sensation during your brief treatment session, but there is no significant discomfort. There’s also a treatment handpiece that can be used on external skin, including your vulva. This option can help shrink and tighten your external genitalia.
There is very little downtime needed after vaginal revitalization. You can return to work within a day, and no pain medications are needed. You should refrain from vaginal intercourse for around a week to give your body time to react to treatments.
