Our vaginal rejuvenation in Santa Clarita encompasses the many procedures related to rejuvenating all aspects of the vagina. As women age, and after childbirth, the vagina naturally changes. The labia may elongate and loosen, and the vagina may become dry, irritated and overly-relaxed. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures work to tighten and restore the vagina, restoring a more youthful appearance while enhancing the strength and health of the vaginal tissues. The procedures range from topical creams and laser therapy to surgical reconstruction.
Women in any stage of life who are experiencing any of following symptoms may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation in Valencia:
Vaginal Rejuvenation can give you greater confidence and greater overall vaginal health and comfort.
Our approach to vaginal rejuvenation in Santa Clarita utilizes the breakthrough technology of V-Lase, a patented C02 Laser Technology that is the most secure and delicate non-ablation treatment, providing the beneficial effects of C02 laser technology to stimulate the vulvovaginal tissues and active the formation of new collagen, without being ablative or causing heat damage.
The V-Lase probe is inserted into the vaginal canal and rotated 360 degrees while pulsing light emits thermal energy into the tissue. This causes the tissue to become stimulated, allowing the blood supply to have greater access to the tissue and encouraging the regeneration of microvasculature, collagen, and elastin to aid in healing and tightening. The V-Lase is then used on the outer tissues of the genitals and passes over them a few times before the procedure is complete.
The procedure is painless with minimal discomfort and involves no surgery or incisions of any kind. Therefore, there is no down time after the treatment and you can go straight back to your daily routine or activities.
As a professional and practicing cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Hu has the experience and attention to detail necessary to help you achieve the results you want. In addition to being plastic surgeon and all the training that entails, he is also specially trained in utilizing the V-Lase, and he has a thorough understanding of the various conditions it can treat and how achieve optimal results.
During your consultation he will answer any questions you have about the V-Lase and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures that may be an option for you. He is an advocate for minimally invasive procedures as well as aesthetic results that help you feel healthier and more confident.
Any woman experiencing dissatisfaction with their vagina or vulva, or suffering symptoms of dryness, itching, or laxity leading to reduced urinary control and reduced satisfaction with intercourse, could be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation in Valencia.
V-Lase is usable in most situations but is not recommended during pregnancy or with active infections, undiagnosed lesions or certain prolapse situations.
V-Lase works by using a probe with a laser that rapidly passes heat along the inside of the vagina and the outer surface of the vulva. This heat stimulates the growth of microvasculature, collagen, and elastin in the tissues which increases elasticity and causes the tissues to become firmer and more capable of producing natural lubrication.
There are no risks associated with the use of V-Lase.
Some women experience results the very same day. For full results, depending on your age and the condition of your genital tissues, 3 treatments are typically recommended, 4 weeks apart, with more treatments recommended 12-18 months later. Full results are generally seen 4-6 months after the initial treatment.
The results of the procedure will typically last between 9-12 months, so it is usually recommended to follow up with another treatment at that time.
You do not have to wait until after you are done having children, as this procedure can usually be performed safely at any time, except during pregnancy.
An IUD will not interfere with the use of V-lase as it is contained within the uterus and the probe will only be used within the vaginal canal.
It is not necessary to halt any use of hormone supplements or birth control for the use of V-Lase.
Most women are very satisfied with the results of their V-Lase treatments.
Insurance will generally cover any treatment deemed medically necessary. If the treatment is used to resolve urinary incontinence or aid in repairing anything that has been medically diagnosed, then your insurance may cover a portion of the procedure.
