Women’s Intimate Health
The aging process, hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and other factors can all contribute to changes in the vaginal area that negatively impact women’s intimate health. The good news is that you don’t need to schedule an invasive surgical procedure to address your concerns.
At SANTÉ Aesthetics and Wellness, we offer a treatment called the Juliet Laser that can help you achieve your desired results without surgery, downtime, or discomfort. Whether you are looking to tighten and tone the vaginal area, address different intimate health concerns, or sexual dysfunction to improve sexual wellness, we can help create the right treatment plan to help you reach your goals.
Juliet vs. Other Women’s Intimate Health Treatments
The Juliet Laser is superior to other women’s intimate health treatments like the CO2 laser and radiofrequency energy treatment devices because it delivers both benefits during a single treatment session. CO2 lasers can resurface the tissue, and radiofrequency treatment devices heat the tissue to promote collagen production. However, the Juliet Laser system heats and resurfaces the tissue during one treatment session.
The Juliet Laser: A Women’s Intimate Health Treatment by Cutera
The Juliet Laser is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment designed by Cutera that uses laser technology to treat sexual health concerns and improve sexual wellness. This laser treatment is an ER: YAG 2940 nm laser that uses laser heat energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the vaginal area.
It can help target some very specific concerns, including vaginal atrophy and vaginal relaxation syndrome. After just one treatment, patients will achieve some incredible results and can experience the benefits of remodeled vaginal tissue and tighter, firmer tissue.
What Does It Treat?
This laser treatment is designed to improve and enhance sexual function and sexual health and improve vaginal sensation and tone. It helps restore flexibility and shape to the area while toning the vaginal wall and remodeling the tissue. It restores youth to the area in several different ways and is an effective option for women of different ages with different concerns.
How Does It Work?
During treatment, we will use the device to perform two separate passes in the treatment area, but it only requires a single insertion at the beginning of the session. The first part of the treatment uses laser energy to create a perceived injury that the body responds to by immediately contracting existing collagen, which can remodel and tighten the area and inevitably increase collagen production in the months following treatment.
During the second pass, the laser system creates a thermal injury that causes the body to respond to the perceived wound by healing any damaged tissue and creating new tissue and blood vessels.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients who undergo this treatment can expect to notice some immediate results after just one treatment. Still, we typically recommend a treatment plan that includes three treatments to target specific concerns. Once we meet with you to discuss your goals, we can better understand what exactly you want to treat and then develop your treatment plan accordingly.
The best results typically come from three sessions with four weeks between each. Yearly follow-up treatments after completing your treatment plan can help maintain tight healthy tissue in the area long-term.
What Happens During the Treatment?
Once we confirm that you’re a good treatment for the Juliet Laser, we can schedule your appointment. Patients must have a clear Pap smear six months before treatment to ensure eligibility and safety. The treatment itself is virtually painless. First, we will apply a topical numbing solution to the area for external use. Once the treatment process begins, you’ll feel a knocking sensation internally that will last for a short period.
Customizing Your Treatment With the O-Shot and Topical PRP
If you want to enhance your results and further target some specific aging or cosmetic-related concerns, we can customize your treatment by combining it with the PRP O-Shot or apply PRP directly onto the tissue after the resurfacing treatment is over.
The O-Shot is a PRP injectable that uses platelet-rich plasma from your blood to increase circulation, promote tissue regeneration, and has endless anti-aging benefits. It’s injected into precise areas of the vagina to promote overall sexual health. We can also apply PRP to the area post-treatment to capitalize on the tissue’s improved absorption rate after the device creates microchannels in the area.
What Should I Expect Post-Treatment?
After your treatment, you can expect to feel a slight warming sensation that will only last for a short time. This warming sensation is typically resolved within the same day, and we will provide cooling pads post-treatment to ensure optimal comfort. The entire treatment is completely non-invasive, discrete, and effective.
After your treatment, you won’t have to plan around downtime, but you will need to follow some specific post-treatment instructions. We ask patients to avoid sexual intercourse, swimming, sauna use, and intense physical workouts for three days post-treatment to ensure the best results and allow the area to adequately respond to the treatment process.
