Frequently Asked Questions
Often menopause brings with it the atrophy or degradation of the tissues around the perineum, as well as a loss of function, tissue turgor, sensation and the reduced response to stimulus.
This new treatment offered by Body Renewal uses Carboxytherapy for vaginal rejuvenation. Carboxytherapy uses 5 to 6 micro injections of carbon dioxide in the area to stimulate the tissues to grow new capillaries. This replenishes the blood supply, improves circulation to the area and thereby restores the function of the tissues and increases the amount of tissue in the treatment area. The effects of each treatment are accumulative.
A medical consultation with one of the Body Renewal doctors is essential to ensure a complete evaluation before any treatment is started.
Treatments are tolerated well and take around 5-10 minutes. Slight discomfort can be experienced with each injection, most patients describe the sensation as being warm and tingling in the treated area. Immediately after the treatment the area appears swollen, due to the CO2 gas, but will be resolved within 30 minutes. This is a lunchtime procedure and one can return to normal activity immediately after the treatment. The effects of each treatment are accumulative.
Depending on the severity of the problem, six to ten weekly treatments and then maintenance of once a month is recommended to maintain results.
This highly sensitive procedure is performed by one of the trained doctors at Skin Renewal. Treatments are well tolerated and take around 5 to 10 minutes to do. It is reported that four to six weekly treatments are all that the area needs to restore functionality (in very severe cases up to 10 treatments may be required).
Once the patient is satisfied with the result (usually after 6 to 10 treatments) a maintenance treatment once every 4 weeks is recommended to maintain results.
