Laser vulvar skin Tightening

Laser vulvar skin Tightening

Laser vulvar skin tightening is performed to tighten the skin tissues and muscles of the vagina. It is not a necessary medical treatment but a cosmetic and aesthetic gynecology procedure. This treatment will help women to regain the texture, moisture, and youthfulness of their vaginal skin. 

Why do you need laser vulvar skin tightening treatment? 

A woman’s vaginal skin gets saggy, wrinkled, and loose with age. This happens for many reasons like estrogen deficiency, vaginal deliveries, weight fluctuations, hormonal fluctuations, sexual intercourse, menopause, and other physical changes. Because of these, many women suffer from deceased sexual appeal, dryness, skin irritation, itching, less vaginal sensitivity, SUI (urinary leakage), etc. A laser vulvar skin tightening treatment can improve these vaginal conditions. And restore a woman’s sexual pleasure and quality of life, and also uplift their self-esteem. 

The lasers used for this treatment are fractional diode and carbon dioxide. Just like laser tightens the skin of the face for a cosmetic procedure, it works similarly for vulvar skin. This treatment is non-invasive and pain-free and leaves lasting effects. 

How do lasers work for skin tightening? 

Laser beam genitally attacks the vulvar and vaginal mucosa tissues, which will heat the collagen and increase blood flow for new collagen regeneration. The new collagen production will contract or shrink the vulvar and vaginal muscles, eventually tightening the skin. Moreover, the new collagen regeneration will moisturize and smoothen the vulvar skin and restore vaginal youthfulness. It will also strengthen the muscles of the vaginal opening, which will help with stress urinary incontinence (urinary leakage). 

Who can get this treatment? 

Anyone, who is desirable, can get this treatment; make sure you don’t have any vaginal infection during the treatment. Consult your doctor before getting this procedure done.

Procedure for laser vulva skin tightening

The procedure is quite simple, safe, non-invasive, and painless. The treatment generally follows in 3-4 sessions, 30-40 mins each, 4-6 weeks apart, and one annual follow-up session (if required).


Before the day of treatment, keep these things in check:

  • No saving, waxing, using hair removal cream, 3 days before the treatment
  • Keep the skin clean and moisturized.

During the Treatment: 

Your vaginal skin should be clean and dry on the day of a session. Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes. Your doctor will numb your vaginal skin with a topical anesthetic. The doctor will probe your vaginal skin and then focus the laser device on the vulvar skin. The gentle burst of energy from the laser beam will heat the connective tissues of the vagina, causing the contraction of tissues. The contraction of tissues will cause vulvar muscles to tighten. The skin will be exposed to a laser for 15-30 mins, and the surgeon must thoroughly cover the vulvar skin for best results. 

Recovery period and Post-treatment: 

Laser vulvar skin tightening is a non-ablative, non-surgical treatment; it won’t require a recovery period. You can go back to your office or home after the treatment. However:

  • Unless prescribed, don’t apply anything to the treated area for 3-4 days
  • No sex for 3-4 days
  • Maintain vaginal hygiene
  • Wear comfortable undergarments
  • Keep vaginal skin sun protected.

Is this treatment safe? 

Yes, laser vulvar skin treatment is a very safe, painless, and effective treatment. And it won’t affect your fertility at all.
