Juliet Vaginal Rejuvenation - No surgery. No needles. Essentially Painless!

As women age, it is common for the vaginal tissue to relax and be less supportive or even 'shrink' and become 'atrophic'.

For most women, these signs of vaginal aging are NOT welcome. Now, there are steps that can be taken to improve these conditions.

The more common causes of vaginal aging can be the result of time and gravity, delivering babies through the vagina, from the lack of hormones or from just inheriting tissue that is less elastic than that of other women.

Until recently, there was not much that could be done to improve the situation. Certainly, aging labial and vaginal tissue can cause:

  • Itching and discomfort
  • Uncomfortable Sexual intercourse
  • Loss of urine control

First, let’s talk about good sex that can be made even better!

Women in Europe and South America have been enjoying the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation for years. The FDA approved it for the United States a year ago.

Multiple studies have shown similar results:

  • Women: rated the procedure with 90% or more satisfied with the results.
  • Women: Sexual pleasure was increased by as much as 92%
  • Men: More than 80% reported increased sexual pleasure

The Aging Vagina and Vaginal Atrophy (drying and thinning of the tissue).

Women who suffer from pain with sex due to vaginal dryness and thinning of the tissue will have the ‘age clock’ reversed.

  • As many as 97% of women reported a high level of satisfaction.
  • Average pelvic floor muscle ‘strength; improved by as much as 60%.
  • Vaginal canal tissue ‘tightened by as much as 17%.

Urinary Incontinence

Let’s spend some time talking about urine loss. There are many causes of urine loss, but one of the most common is called stress urinary incontinence. This can be best described as the loss of urine when you run, jump, cough laugh, or sneeze.

Causes of urine loss:

In women, physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause as well as the low estrogen levels associated with menopause, can cause stress urinary incontinence.

This type of urine loss can also occur in younger women. Two examples are:

  1. Lower estrogen levels that are present just before the menstrual period begins can cause enough of a change in the supporting structure and can result in a greater likelihood of urine loss.
  2. Female athletes who are involved in strenuous exercise programs can experience the shutdown of the ovaries (the primary source of estrogen). They, too, can be troubled by the involuntary loss of urine.

Improving the vaginal tissue, both the elasticity and the thickness of the tissue, can decrease urine loss or eliminate the loss of urine.

Almost 70% of the women in the study were no longer losing urine after 120 days. No adverse effects were reported.

Here are the Basics: The Juliet™ is administered by medical professionals who have undergone special training.

The device that is used is a special Erbium:YAG laser. It targets the vaginal tissue in order to restore its natural state. The changes that occur will improve the collagen and the blood supply to the aging tissue. The results? Specific scientific studies show the vaginal and labial tissue thicken and restore the balance of the tissue; this leads to increasing vaginal ‘tightness’, more flexibility of the tissue and the more natural vaginal discharge that is so desirable.

Does the type of laser treatment matter?

The Juliet (Ebrium:YAG laser) has been compared, in at least two head to head studies with CO2.

The Juliet patients did not present complications that were commonly seen in the CO2 treated women (Gaspar 2012).

The Juliet patients achieved longer lasting results than the CO2 patients.

The women who received the CO2 laser treatments reported significantly higher discomfort during and after the treatment. (Gasper 2013)

How many treatments are necessary?

  • Of 135 women who participated in the study:
  • 90% were satisfied after one treatment.
  • 9.6% noted improvement but wanted a second treatment.

Realistically, your treatment must be individualized. Your results and the degree of improvement, as well as how long the benefits will last, depend on the condition(s) we are treating.

Currently, the longest ‘official’ follow up study is 6 months for the urinary incontinence patients. The patients were still dry and happy.

One of the physicians who has great experience with the procedures, E. V. Leshunov, MD, reports that he has followed patients that he has treated who are still happy with the results at 36 months. He did add that patients with vaginal atrophy may need to be treated at 1-2 year intervals to keep their ‘vaginal clock” rejuvenated.
