Fractionated CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) is a breakthrough non-surgical procedure for treating age-related vaginal atrophy (Atrophic Vaginitis).
Stretto application is safe, effective, and long-lasting solution without the adverse side effects of drug therapies. The CO2 Fractional laser is applied along the vaginal wall which results in very gentle controlled ablation and coagulation of the vaginal lining that promotes a healthier and tighter vagina. The CO2 Fractional laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method where columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing.
Stretto CO2 Fractional laser produces light at a 10600 nm wavelength, which is absorbed by water in the tissue. The laser energy heats up the water until it reaches a boiling point causing the evaporation of the affected tissue.
Some heat is absorbed by tissue adjacent to the ablated target area, causing tissue coagulation which induces hemostasis (the cessation of bleeding) as well as thermal stimulation of deep skin layers, which induces fibroblast stimulation and neocollagenesis (the formation of new collagen).
