Expected Results

Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a minimally invasive treatment that can help to improve dyspareunia by increasing vaginal moisture and elasticity. The procedure involves the use of a special laser to stimulate the growth of new collagen, which can help to reduce pain and improve sexual function. In addition, laser vaginal rejuvenation can also help to tighten the vaginal opening, which can improve both urinary incontinence and sexual sensation. If you are suffering from dyspareunia, laser vaginal rejuvenation may be an effective treatment option for you.

I recently had Botox treatment at Albany Clinic for my frown. I'm really happy with the results. Moreover, the staff was friendly and professional, making me feel at ease throughout the procedure. They use freezing cream and leave it long enough to work. So I highly recommend them!

Fotona Vs. Votiva

When it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, two of the most popular non-surgical treatment options are laser therapy and radiofrequency (RF) therapy. Both of these treatments can be effective in improving the overall health and function of the vaginal tissue, but they work in slightly different ways.

  • Laser therapy, such as Fotona Tightlase and Intimalase, uses targeted laser energy to stimulate the production of collagen, which can improve the elasticity and tightness of the vaginal tissue. This treatment is often recommended for women who are seeking to improve sexual satisfaction and reduce pain during intercourse.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, such as Votiva, uses gentle heat to tighten and rejuvenate the vaginal tissue. This treatment can help to improve the overall health of the vaginal tissue and can also be used to address specific concerns, such as dyspareunia, vaginal dryness, and stress urinary incontinence.

Both laser and RF therapy are non-invasive, minimally painful, and require no downtime, making them ideal for women who are seeking effective and convenient solutions for their vaginal health concerns. At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, our team of experts can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your individual needs and goals.
