What Is “vaginal rejuvenation”?

Vaginal rejuvenation describes treatments that help reverse the effects of aging and menopause on vaginal tissues. At Complete Healthcare for Women, it’s a proven, successful way to reduce the number of uncomfortable gynecological symptoms and restore your vagina to full health.

Why would I need vaginal rejuvenation?

Aging and menopause, as well as cancer treatments, childbirth, breastfeeding, and some medications, may cause vaginal atrophy. Atrophy usually features dryness, thinning of the vaginal lining, and diminished sexual satisfaction. It most often occurs due to hormonal changes.

Lichen sclerosus, a skin condition similar to eczema and psoriasis, is another reason you might experience thinning of your vaginal lining and want to seek a vaginal rejuvenation. Lichen sclerosus typically occurs in women over 50 but can occur in younger women as well.

How does SeleneTouch work?

The SeleneTouch is a painless CO2 laser. A beam of light shines through the surface skin layers and releases energy pulses evenly along the vaginal walls. This stimulates the regeneration and regrowth of skin cells, blood vessels, and lubrication glands. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin — two proteins responsible for the skin’s elasticity. New blood vessels bring more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This quickly restores moisture and elasticity, and normalizes vaginal pH, resulting in vaginal rejuvenation. Many women notice improvement within a month after having a treatment.

How many treatments do I need, and how long does it last?

SeleneTouch is a series of three treatments that are each 5 minutes long. Results last 1-2 years. Most women schedule a single “touch-up” treatment every 1-2 years.

How much does it cost, and is it covered by my insurance?

A series of three SeleneTouch treatments costs a total of $1600. Follow-up “touch-up” treatments cost $500. SeleneTouch is not covered by any insurance companies.
