Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome (VRS)
Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome (VRS) or loose vagina is a quite common medical condition described as a loss of the optimal vaginal structure. It is usually associated with vaginal child delivery, multiple pregnancies, natural aging and menopause.
Vaginal lining, lubrication and tightness are all under the effect of female hormones. Vaginal atrophy happens as a consequence of menopause and due to decline of the hormonal level.
Loose vagina leads to reduction of friction during intercourse and thus to decrease or loss of sexual gratification.
VRS treatment options ranging from pelvic muscles exercise, hormonal treatment in form of creams and tablets and invasive surgical procedure where we cut and rearrange vaginal and peripheral tissue in order to reduce the size of vaginal canal.
Operating on or near sensitive vaginal tissue is inherently risky and can cause scarring, nerve damage and decreased sensation. Furthermore, patients require an extended recovery period. The most popular among the surgical procedures are those performed with lasers, where the laser is used instead of scalpel.
Novel Laser treatment is available to deliver laser energy pulses to vaginal canal and introitus area causes controlled tissue heating to the deep layers of the vagina.
Laser controlled heating will lead to stimulation of skin strength and elasticity, immediate tissue contracture and that leads to shrinking, tightening of the vagina and better control of urine incontinence.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Vaginal laser treatment is based on laser-induced, mild and controlled heating of the vaginal tissue, which stimulates angiogenesis, fibroblast activity and new skin strength and elasticity formation without thermal or ablative damage. The final result is increased epithelial thickness as well as vascularisation of the lamina propria, along with a reduction of symptoms such as dryness, itching, irritation and painful intercourse.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
In Chelsea Cosmetics Clinic, you will undergo consultation and treatment with female doctors exclusively to ensure your comfort and privacy during the process. Your doctor will address any concerns you may have as well as recommend a suitable number of sessions for your specific situation.
Before start of the treatment topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 30 minutes, once the area is numb you doctor will apply a probe like applicator and gently slide it up in the vagina. The probe will emit laser to the wall of the vagina and to the deep tissues and on the surface of the vaginal introitus. The procedure may be followed by PRP infiltration in the area to accelerate tissue regeneration and skin strength and elasticity formation if required.
After the treatment is complete, you may return to your daily routine, including work or exercise, without any worry. There are no side effects, nor bleeding or swelling as a result of the procedure. Sessions are best performed once a month, with 3 sessions recommended for optimal results, but this may vary from individual to individual.
