What is Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance sexual gratification for women. The procedure is a modification of a gynecological surgical technique used for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
Why have Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal relaxation occurs because of age, childbirth, weight loss and gain. In vaginal relaxation, the muscles are relaxed and have poor tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters increase, and the muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state. As a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification is diminished.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation enhances sexual gratification in many ways, including:
- enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control
- decreases the internal and external vaginal diameters
- builds up and strengthens the perineal body
- improves the external appearance of the vulva and perineum.
How do I know if Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is right for me?
If you want to increase sexual gratification, you may be an excellent candidate for Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation. If you suffer from stress urinary incontinence, you may also benefit from this procedure.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation may be performed in conjunction with a labiaplasty, a surgical procedure that reduces or reshapes the labia minora (the skin surrounding the vaginal opening). Please discuss this option with the doctor.
