Internal Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
The Juliet with V Spot Erbium: YAG laser is the latest technology in fractional laser systems for gentle, effective vaginal rejuvenation and improving urinary stress incontinence. The special structure of the laser pulse allows penetration deep into the tissue, precisely where it is most required.
The first laser to offer this benefit was the Mona Lisa. As the first in its class, the concept and technology were well conceived. In Dr Michael Rich’s opinion, the Juliet, which is a newer technology, achieves good results but can in most cases achieve better result than the Mona Lisa in less than half the number of treatments.
What does the Juliet Laser treat?
With menopause or due to hormonal treatments related to conditions like breast cancer, the vaginal lining becomes thin and atrophic, and can result in painful intercourse due to dryness, itch, discharge and spotting. The Juliet Laser rejuvenates the lining of the vagina resulting in a more hydrated, better quality and thicker lining with improved lubrication and less discomfort.
Pregnancy, childbirth and ageing often cause vaginal wall laxity and urinary stress incontinence when involuntary loss of urine occurs during coughing, sneezing or physical exertion. The Juliet Laser tightens the vaginal canal and supporting structures around the bladder, improving sensation with intercourse (for both you and your partner) and reduces urine leakage with physical activity, sneezing or coughing.
The external labia majora and labia minora can also be rejuvenated with the Juliet Laser, plumping up the outer labia and tightening and retracting the inner labia.
The Juliet is only for mild to medium vaginal issues.
Can everyone have the procedure?
Treatment is not performed during pregnancy if there is any undiagnosed vaginal bleeding and if there is a current urine or genital tract infection. We require the patient to have had a recent PAP smear test with a normal result.
Does the treatment hurt?
To minimise discomfort, oral analgesia tablets (Panadeine) is given prior to the treatment, and local anaesthetic cream is applied to the external areas if they will be treated. Discomfort during treatment usually minimal, although some patients feel a mild, warm sensation during the procedure and soem discomfort.
What happens during treatment?
- Juliet with V Spot Erbium laser vaginal rejuvenation is carried out only by our highly trained doctors at ENRICH.
- Positioning during treatment is similar to having a PAP smear, with a sheet placed over the groin for modesty.
- A speculum examination is performed after which the local anaesthetic cream, applied previously, is removed.
- The laser treatment is then carried out.
- There may be mild discomfort immediately after the treatment.
- There is some downtime from the treatment – abstaining from intercourse for 7 days is advised.
- A sanitary pad or panty liner can be worn for the light vaginal discharge that lasts for up to 5 days after treatment.
How many treatments are required?
For ladies who have not reached menopause, one treatment is usually sufficient. However, postmenopausal patients benefit from a second treatment, one month later. Treatments annually can also be beneficial.
How quickly is improvement noticed?
Benefits are observed almost immediately, although maximal tightening due to new collagen formation will take up to a month to occur.
What makes the Juliet laser different from other lasers that perform vaginal rejuvenation?
- Juliet has a small hand-piece meaning greater comfort compared with some of the bulkier devices on the market.
- The Juliet has a target-specific laser beam using sophisticated technology resulting in more precise treatment and less damage to surrounding areas, making it ideal for delicate tissue such as the vagina.
