Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) was designed to enhance sexual gratification for women. This procedure enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength and control. Vaginal relaxation causes a woman’s muscles to have poor tone, strength and control. When the muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported, the vagina is no longer functioning at it’s best and sexual gratification is greatly diminished.
Many women, especially younger women, who have had children, will experience vaginal relaxation. Common complaints are “my vagina is very loose,” “I don’t feel aroused during intercourse” or “I don’t enjoy intercourse because there is little to no friction during intercourse”.
Most of these women say that “sex is just not the same”.
Sexual gratification has been directly related to the amount of frictional forces which are generated during intercourse. This procedure can increase the friction during intercourse, which allows for a more pleasurable experience for a woman and her partner.
Women who experience loss of urine from coughing laughing, sneezing, during exercise activities or during sex, can have their urinary incontinence corrected along with enhancing sexual gratification.
This procedure is about an hour and a half, is an outpatient procedure, with minimal bleeding. Healing occurs in a very short period of time and recovery time is nominal.
Other commons terms for this type of procedure are: vaginal tightening, vagina tightening, loose vagina procedure, vagina surgery and vaginal reconstruction.
