After aging and childbirth, many women can experience a change in the appearance of their vaginal skin as well as dryness and laxity. Not only can this detract from the patient's appearance and self-esteem, but it also decreases sexual satisfaction and can make sexual intercourse a painful or uncomfortable experience. To treat and alleviate these symptoms, Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi recommends laser vaginal restoration using the CO2RE Intima device by Syneron Candela. This laser handpiece is able to heat up the vaginal wall and surrounding tissues to tighten and revive the skin, combat dryness, and restore discoloration. If patients are looking for a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate their vagina, then we encourage them to contact VIP Plastic Surgery today to learn more.
"Melanie did an absolutely fantastic job with my Fraxel laser treatment on my face.. Any and ALL us sun-damage was removed and I've been left with a very healthy looking glow. She was very aware of how uncomfortable it could feel at times and was in tune with me and my comfort levels. I'd highly recommend her and VIP plastic surgery for all your beauty enhancing needs."- F.R. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2019
"After having a saline breast augmentation 7 years ago and breast feeding two kids, my breast needed a lot of work. Dr Khorsandi spent plenty of time with me going over what I needed. I was very confident in his decision. My moms works with plastic surgeons daily and highly recommend Dr Khorsandi. I am beyond happy with my results! They are absolutely perfect! If you are looking to get a breast augmentation, he is definitely the doctor!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 13, 2018
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"This is my go to spot! Dr. K is a very talented and knowledgeable man and I feel very confident relying on him for my fillers and Botox. I am looking into trying some of their facial and laser services they also offer :-)"- O.R. / Yelp / Nov 29, 2018
"I came in here for a consultation but I ended up leaving with a bag full of skincare! The Zo Skin Health pore refiner has already done wonders on my skin, and it's only been 2 weeks! My pores are clear as ever and my skin is glowing! It stings a tad when you apply it but it works like a charm! They say beauty is pain, right? Thanks Catherine and Dr. Khorsandi!"- S.H. / Yelp / Nov 28, 2018
A great candidate for nonsurgical vaginal restoration will be interested in:
- Repairing vaginal issues or appearance flaws without undergoing cosmetic surgery
- Strengthening the vaginal canal
- Increasing production of natural moisture and lubrication
- A decrease in sexual discomfort and enhancement of sexual arousal and climax
- Long-term results without downtime
To perform the procedure, a wand applicator will be slowly passed over the exterior of the labia and vulvar tissues. The CO2RE handpiece may be inserted into the vagina as it emits controlled radio frequency (RF) energy to the tissues and other internal structures to stimulate collagen and tighten the area. The wand contains a built-in thermometer to adjust the temperature as needed to prevent burns or injury.
Nonsurgical vaginal restoration can be performed in our office in around 30 minutes. No anesthesia is required for the treatment, as it should be relatively comfortable. A recovery period is not usually necessary following a CO2RE Intima treatment. Patients may return to their everyday activities right after their session.
Many of our patients notice results after the first or second session, while some may not notice them for up to three months following the procedure as the collagen process begins to start.
Are There Risks?
The CO2RE device has been cleared by the FDA to treat a large number of gynecological and genitourinary issues. Treatments have been deemed as safe and effective, producing a comfortable experience with little pain and no downtime associated with treatments. The CO2 lasers are also favored for use on intimate areas of the body due to their more gentle nature that does not produce scarring as opposed to other laser systems.
How Many Sessions?
While patients can benefit from a single session, Dr. Khorsandi generally recommends three treatments scheduled one week apart for a maximum outcome.
These results usually last up to 18 months, but annual follow-up treatments are recommended to help patients maintain the benefits.
