Vaginal Rejuvenation with Juliet

Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure developed to restore comfort as well as a youthful nature and appearance to the vaginal area.  Over time, vaginal tissue can stretch and lose tone and elasticity as a result of vaginal childbirth, the natural process of aging, and also certain cancer therapies. This change in vaginal tissue often causes other uncomfortable symptoms such as burning, itching, and dryness of the vaginal canal, as well as pain during intercourse.  Looser vaginal tissue can also result in leakage of urine when sneezing, coughing, laughing or exercising.

In addition to improved genital comfort, women might also seek a vaginal rejuvenation treatment in order to enhance their sexual functioning and satisfaction as well as the cosmetic appearance of the vagina and exterior vulvar area.  This procedure can also be performed to enhance a woman’s confidence in her feminine health.  Clearly the desire for improved vaginal health can affect a wide range of women for various reasons, yet it is still an unmet gynecological need in women’s health.

This is where the Juliet® laser treatment comes in.  At our Bloomfield office, we are excited to offer this minimally invasive laser treatment to address a woman’s vaginal needs. The Juliet® uses a small disposable hand piece to deliver two passes of laser energy directly to the area of concern.  The first pass is used to vaporize existing mucosal tissue while stimulating production of collagen and elastin.  The second pass of energy will then remodel the damaged tissue using the newly formed collagen to revitalize the vaginal tissue. This will in turn improve its tone, shape, and flexibility as well as the vascularization of the vaginal canal.

The technology used in Juliet® allows for a concentrated delivery of laser energy so only the targeted area will be treated.  This results in a more effective outcome and higher patient satisfaction with the treatment.   Patients also report a minimal downtime after receiving a treatment. Compared to other laser procedures offered for vaginal rejuvenation, patients can typically see results after just one treatment of the Juliet®.  We recommend you get a second treatment at least four weeks after your initial appointment. After this, it is typically required to get a follow up treatment once every twelve months in order to maintain your results; however this can vary on an individual basis.
