Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation in Lafayette, LA
What is LVR?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is probably the most effective way to treat a common problem women have, called vaginal relaxation. Many women say that “sex isn’t the same” or that they feel “loose” and have very little sensation, and this is due to a condition known as vaginal relaxation. Vaginal relaxation usually occurs as a women’s body experiences childbirth and other natural aging processes, which can weaken or damage the muscles and ligaments surrounding her vagina.

What are the Symptoms of Vaginal Relaxation?
Symptoms of vaginal relaxation include, but are not limited to:
- stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
- loss of functional control
- decreased sexual gratification for both the woman and her partner
- difficulty with bowel movements including the need to “splint” for bowel movements
What to Expect During LVR
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a one to two-hour outpatient surgical procedure that restores vaginal tissues and increases the patient’s sensitivity and responsiveness to sexual stimulation.
Benefits of LVR
Unlike current “devices” that are used to treat both relaxation and dryness, this is considered a “one and done” surgery that should provide a permanent solution (unless the patient has more children via vaginal delivery or instances of vaginal trauma). This procedure is performed in an outpatient facility under local anesthetic.
Two to four postop visits are required after the procedure. The precise number of visit will be determined on an individual recovery basis. After the procedure, patients will require a full 6 week pelvic rest and restrictions on weight lifting to allow for complete healing and lack of recurrence.
