Vaginal or pelvic relaxation syndrome (VRS) is defined as laxity, or looseness of the vaginal wall. VRS can result in loss of friction and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. The most common cause of VRS is the overstretching of the vaginal walls during vaginal childbirth. Natural aging and hormonal decline can also cause the vaginal walls to thin out and become less elastic over time. The walk-in/walk-out non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that we offer at Dr Nightingale Dermatology Aesthetic is IntimaLase, an effective treatment for Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome.
IntimaLase is a fast, effective, non-invasive, incision-less procedure for vaginal tightening with no undesired side effects. Over a few weeks after the treatment, your body will create new collagen within the vaginal walls. This will tighten the vaginal canal and opening, rebuild the lining, and restore natural lubrication. The procedure only takes between 15-30 minutes with minimal discomfort if any.
