Female Rejuvenation

This treatment utilizes energy delivered by a CO2 laser to heat the tissue located in the vaginal canal. This stimulates collagen and elastin production which can tighten, improve vaginal dryness, and help improve symptoms related to urinary stress incontinence. 

What to expect during treatment?

The vaginal walls are cleaned using a hydrogen peroxide solution and long Q-tip. The probe is inserted into the vaginal canal. Treatment is generally well tolerated, no anesthetic is needed.

What to expect after treatment?

You may experience mild burning, itching, swelling for a few days post treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Generally, 3 treatments are recommended 4 weeks apart. 

When will I see results?

Full results will be noticeable in 3 months and results can last for up to one year. Maintenance once a year is recommended.

Risks associated with treatment

If the settings are too high, burns, scarring, and pain during intercourse may occur. We always approach these treatments conservatively and can adjust settings on subsequent visits based on response and tolerance.

The World of Fillers

The World of Fillers

Fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which restores volume and improves the overall texture of the skin. As we age, we lose fat in the face, the muscle wears down and even the bone structure changes. This all contributes to an ageing face. In our youth, the face is shaped like an upside-down egg, wider at the top and narrower at the bottom. As we age, this flip around. We become narrower up top having lost volume around the temples and wider at the bottom. This is because of the changes we mentioned above – loss of subcutaneous fat, muscle atrophy, and changes in bone structure.

When tackling volume loss, we start with the midface. It fills the cheeks, elevates the midface, and in doing so can improve the hollowing of the eyes and smooth the lines around the mouth. Filler can restore definition to the jawline. Not only can it plump the lips, but also restore its color and hydration too. Don’t forget the hands, always a dead giveaway of our age. The hands can also be filled, we use Restylane Lyft for this area. With the correct type of filler and amount used most won’t know what you’ve had done, just that you look rested, refreshed, youthful.

Prior to coming to the clinic there are a few things you should do to prepare. Avoid alcohol and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to injection as this will minimize bruising. Of course, there still is a risk of bruising as we have hundreds of thousands of blood vessels in our face but taking this precaution will help. We locally anesthetize the area and in some, perform a nerve block. Other practices just use a topical anesthetic. We do not find this to be as effective. After your procedure you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days. Sleeping upright can help with swelling. Keeping hydrated and using a topical hyaluronic serum is great to support your treatment at home. By staying hydrated and using a good skin care regimen, we support and maintain our results following treatment.

We love Galderma’s Restylane line of fillers. Their line of fillers with XpresHAn technology integrates into the tissues and moves with the face keeping a natural look. We’ve included a list of Restylane’s line of filles and areas we like to use them:

Restylane Refyne – can be used anywhere on the face
Restylane Defyne – lower face such as nasal labial folds (laugh lines), chin
Restylane Contour – midface
Restylane Lyft – midface, temples, jawline, hands
Restylane – L – can be used anywhere on the face, lips
Restylane Kysse – lips, wrinkles around the mouth

We are happy to answer any questions you may have! Consultations are complimentary. Call or schedule online at themdskinclinic.com
