What Is RejuVAnate?

Aging  mucosa and supporting  structures in and around the vagina – often occurring in conjunction with menopause – can cause many health issues, leading to embarrassing urinary incontinence and painful intercourse that is uncomfortable for both partners. Laser vaginal rejuvenation can successfully solve these problems.

RejuVAnate is a CO2 laser treatment to improve the signs of aging in the vagina and the surrounding areas. It works by stimulating collagen growth to strengthen and tighten tissues. By removing thin layers of mucosa , RejuVAnate helps restore consistent tone and texture in the vaginal region.

During a RejuVAnate treatment, the laser resurfaces the area by delivering short bursts of energy into the tissues of the vaginal opening and vaginal walls. The heat energy encourages collagen production, increases muscle tone, and can address:

  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • Itching
  • Laxity
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful intercourse

For most patients, a series of three RejuVAnate treatments scheduled every four to six weeks may significantly improve vaginal health and reduce painful intercourse, dryness, itching, and urinary incontinence. Each RejuVAnate treatment lasts only a few minutes and requires minimal downtime. Most patients can resume many typical activities immediately following treatment.

What Are the Benefits of RejuVAnate?

Over time, childbirth, aging, and other natural causes can naturally change the vagina, leading to dryness, itching, burning, painful intercourse, atrophy, and urinary incontinence. RejuVAnate’s advanced laser technology can reverse many of these conditions, improving your overall health and quality of life.

In performing the RejuVAnate treatment, we aim to improve intimate health with minimal downtime and disruption to your daily schedule. This procedure can benefit women who are peri- or post-menopausal or postpartum.

By strengthening the vaginal tissues, RejuVAnate can also:

  • Reduce urinary incontinence and laxity
  • Improve sexual sensation and lubrication, reducing discomfort
  • Restore the vaginal wall
  • Enhance labial appearance
  • Increase quality of life

The optimal time to begin exploring treatments is when vaginal laxity is in its earliest stages and your symptoms are mild. Don’t wait to contact us or call (631) 935-0303 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Vandegrift, so you can start enjoying your results and living your best life sooner.

RejuVAnate is painless and requires no anesthetic. Typically, a RejuVAnate vaginal rejuvenation appointment lasts one hour; however, the treatment itself only takes a few minutes. During your appointment, Dr. Vandegrift places the RejuVAnate device onto the vaginal canal  to deliver laser energy.

Since RejuVAnate vaginal laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure, you can immediately return home and resume most of your typical daily activities. However, you must abstain from all sexual activity, strenuous exercises, or tampon use for a week afterward.

Following treatment, you may experience temporary urinary urgency or difficulty. Some spotting may occur. For one to two days, you might have a pink  watery discharge.
