FAQ, FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1
I have had a child or a number of children and since, things just aren't the same vaginally. Sex just isn't as gratifying as before. Please explain to me how Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® can correct my problems and enhance sexual gratification.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR®) for the enhancement of sexual gratification is a modification of a standard gynecologic surgical procedure. The laser is used to perform precise surgical incisions. The techniques that have been developed result in a relatively bloodless procedure performed on an outpatient basis. In brief, we tighten the vaginal muscles and support tissues, as well as reduce redundant vaginal mucosa (relaxed vaginal lining). The procedure enhances vaginal muscle, tone, strength and control, and effectively decreases the internal and external (introitus) vaginal diameters. It can also build up the perineal body, the area immediately outside the vagina and above the anus. According to Masters and Johnson, sexual gratification for the female is directly related to the amount of frictional force generated. LVR® can help restore optimum frictional force durino intercorse and also provide an easthetic enhancement of the external vaginal structures, resulting in a more youthful look.
