Post vaginal rejuvenation
Minimally invasive procedures, using laser and radiofrequency devices, have been introduced to reduce GSM symptoms and are often referred to as vaginal rejuvenation.
The most common side effects of vaginal rejuvenation are burning sensation, discomfort, swelling and redness. 1
Post-procedure care after vaginal rejuvenation is as important as the procedure itself in order to obtain the best result. It is essential to choose a post-procedure care product which fulfils certain criteria.
More than 85% of females who undergo a vaginal birth will suffer from some degree of perineal tear (or graze), with 0.6–11% of all vaginal deliveries resulting in a third-degree or fourth-degree tear.
Symptoms can have a significant impact on the woman’s quality of life. The most common long-term problems are dyspareunia, perineal pain, and fatal and fecal incontinence. 2
Episiotomy is one of the most practiced surgical procedures in obstetrics , aimed at increasing the vaginal outlet width during delivery as well as to prevent extensive perineal injury, including rupture of the anal sphincter muscles. 3
