What does an energy-based treatment for vaginal rejuvenation involve?
Both types of treatment use heat. The device uses the energy to heat up the top layers of the tissue. When the tissue is heated, the underlying layers of tissue create extra collagen to help heal the area. By damaging the top layers of tissue, the lower layers make new and firmer tissue.
Where is an energy-based treatment done?
Energy-based treatments can be done in your doctor’s office. Little, if any, anesthetic is used during the procedure. Patients can typically continue with their day without needing recovery time.
What does the energy-based treatment feel like?
There is typically little irritation during the treatment. The area being treated may feel warm during the procedure. A topical anesthetic may be used if there is discomfort.
