About Vaginal Rejuvenation
With the effects of menopause, aging, and childbirth, the tissue and/or skin of the inner and outer vagina can become lax, causing functional complications. At Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, we are pleased to offer nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with FemTouch technology to address sexual dysfunction, vaginal dryness, and stress incontinence. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation stimulates the growth of collagen, which in turn strengthens the vaginal skin's resilience and elasticity. It's an excellent scalpel-free choice to cosmetically improve the appearance of the vagina and address potential medical conditions. To find out more about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, call our Dallas, TX office to schedule a private consultation with seasoned board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe.
"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"- T.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
"Phenomenal experience from consultation to post-op. Dr. Dauwe did a thorough job explaining the procedure in great detail, discussing my different options and the outcomes, and really made feel comfortable with my decision. His work is absolutely beautiful, and he is a true artist. You can tell Dr. Dauwe really goes the extra mile for his patients, and has a caring bedside manner. Julie- his cosmetic coordinator, is simply amazing. She checked on me several times before and after the procedure, and was always there to answer questions. Highly recommend! One of the best decisions I've ever made! I'm very grateful."- D.K. / Google / Oct 13, 2020

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Dauwe and his staff! Sara and Julie are so sweet and do a fantastic job preparing patients for their surgery day. Catherine Kinney called me the night before to make sure I was prepared for anesthesia. Her voice was so calming and she really made me feel at ease for my upcoming procedure. The morning of my surgery, I was greeted with many friendly smiles, including Karen and CRNA Kinney. Before my procedure, Dr. Dauwe came in and measured and marked me up. He once again went over his plan for my procedure and what I could expect after surgery. I had my breast implants removed with a lift. The most surprising thing to me was that HE CALLED THURSDAY EVENING TO CHECK ON ME!! I thought that was so thoughtful of him. After five days, I can honestly say my results are above and beyond what I ever expected. Dr. Dauwe did a wonderful job! I’ve had minimal pain and my breasts are looking great! He is very knowledgeable in his field, he is professional and kind. I highly recommend him for any plastic surgery needs!"- S.R. / Google / Oct 07, 2020
"Dr. Dauwe and His team are Phenomenal!!! - Tummy Tuck with LipoI had an extremely long journey to Dr. Dauwe, but I'm so thankful that I found him! I couldn't figure out the source of my GI problems after seeing MULTIPLE specialists, GI doctor, Colorectal Surgeon, multiple diagnostic tests with no answers. I have known Julie for years, and thankfully after talking with her one day she suggested I come see Dr. Dauwe. One look at my abdomen, he said "has anyone told you that you have a pretty significant umbilical hernia?" I had no idea, but Dr. Dauwe was able to figure out the source of my problems and knew how to get it corrected. We decided that a Tummy Tuck due to Diastasis Recti and lipo because why not, along with a hernia repair would fix my problem, and he was right!! I had surgery 7/17/20 and my problems are GONE! I also have an amazing looking tummy again! My recovery was way easier than I had imagined! I took 2 weeks off work and enjoyed having time to relax. I had pain, but it was controlled pretty easily. During my recovery some concerns arose, Dr. Dauwe called and talked to me numerous times, I even bothered him while he was on vacation. He's an amazing surgeon, but he's also a caring, fun person to talk to. He will make you feel completely comfortable. Plus his office manager, Julie, is the sweetest person you will ever meet! I love Dr. Dauwe, Julie ad the whole team and Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery Center. I can't wait for my next procedure!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 30, 2020
Vaginal Rejuvenation Ideal Candidates
You could be a great candidate for this procedure if you are interested in addressing vaginal difficulties or aesthetic concerns, but you are not interested in undergoing cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation strengthens your vaginal canal, reverses urinary incontinence, allows for increased production of natural moisture and lubrication, minimizes sex-related pain, and amplifies sexual arousal and climax. The procedure also provides marked results without a long recovery. Most patients return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure Technique
Laser vaginal rejuvenation can be performed in-office in around 30 minutes. No anesthesia is required for the treatment. At the time of the procedure, a wand-shaped probe will be inserted into the vaginal canal to emit focused fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall. The laser creates controlled micro-injuries to the tissue in order to promote remodeling to the vaginal lining for rejuvenation and new collagen production. This process strengthens the vaginal tissue for a tighter contour. The wand also contains a built-in thermometer so that the temperature can be monitored and manipulated as necessary to prevent burns or injury.
What to Expect with Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
A recovery period is not usually necessary following this procedure. You may return to your everyday activities upon the conclusion of the treatment. For optimal results, Dr. Dauwe highly recommends three treatments at one-month intervals. Many of our patients see results after each session while some could take up to three months to fully form. These results usually last up to 18 months so yearly follow-up treatments can help maintain your outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions about Vaginal Rejuvenation
How much does nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation cost?
Laser technology has come very far in recent years, helping to bring the costs down. Laser vaginal rejuvenation is priced based on what is being addressed and how many sessions are needed to achieve the appropriate outcome. Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery realizes this procedure is an important process for many women as they gain back their confidence and improve the look, feel, and function of their intimate area. Therefore, we work with our patients on flexible payment plans and financing so they can afford and achieve the results they need and desire.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation work?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation can improve vaginal laxity. It may also help with overall sexual dysfunction due to dryness, looseness, and other issues. More and more women are turning to this procedure because of its outstanding outcomes.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation treat loose skin?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is recommended for women who seek a higher degree of vaginal tightness within the vaginal walls. Events such as childbirth, a massive weight loss, or even aging can strain the internal muscles and create laxity, which can be improved with laser treatment. Women who have loose skin such as an oversized or stretched labia majora may be better candidates for a surgical procedure such as labiaplasty. This cosmetic surgery removes the excess skin along the inner or outer labia for a more pleasing aesthetic appearance.
Can I combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with other procedures?
New moms and weight loss patients alike commonly combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with other treatments to address a variety of cosmetic imperfections. That is why certain procedures such as the mommy makeover may include a tummy tuck, breast lift, and vaginal tightening for a full-body rejuvenation. Labiaplasty is often combined as well to correct function while improving the appearance of the vagina at the same time. There are many factors to consider and numerous combination approaches to help attain the right result.
What is the recovery from laser vaginal rejuvenation like?
During your consultation, we will discuss with you how many sessions it will take to get the best results. There is no pain or downtime associated with the use of this laser. You should be able to resume your day as normal after the appointment. We do recommend refraining from using tampons or engaging in sexual intercourse for several days after the treatment to allow the treated area to properly heal.
