Laser-based vaginal rejuvenation is a laser treatment used to address changes in vaginal health often caused by childbirth and menopause. It may also be used to treat side effects in women who have undergone a hysterectomy or chemotherapy. The device's laser handpiece is inserted into the vagina, delivering controlled energy pulses into the tissue.1
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a relatively new technology and therefore guidelines are difficult to come by; however, AmSpa believes that most states consider or will consider vaginal rejuvenation to be a medical treatment. Because of this, prior to your initial treatment, the medical spa should conduct an in-person exam by either a doctor, a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant. Most states have found with proper training, education and supervision, most medical spa professionals can perform vaginal rejuvenation at this time. Please check with your local medical board, nursing board or health care attorney for more information.
