Vaginal Rejuvenation in Charleston County, SC (Women’s health and wellness)

Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide restorative vaginal rejuvenation treatments to the residents of Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities, with offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head.

What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

The term “vaginal rejuvenation” refers to procedures and surgeries that aim to improve the appearance and/or function of the vagina.

Vaginal health deteriorates with decreased collagen production. It’s affected by age, genetics, medications, cancer, and vaginal birth. The common side effects of reduced collagen are laxity, dryness, itching, loss of sensation, difficulty with orgasm, painful intercourse, and stress urinary incontinence. All of these symptoms can affect a woman’s self esteem and confidence.

At Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery, we have helped our patients achieve improved vaginal health and sexual function since 2015 with the Juliet laser and added Geneveve and Love Shot in 2017. Our providers are experts on vaginal rejuvenation, working with a wide range of female patients who are empowered to improve their vaginal and sexual health.

Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery is the only center in South Carolina that offers 3 minimally invasive options to tailor your treatment to your specific needs. And we are the only plastic surgeon in Charleston offering any vaginal rejuvenation treatment along with surgical options.

At Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery we use three minimally invasive treatments for vaginal rejuvenation:

And two surgical options

  • Vaginoplasty – surgical procedure to tighten the vaginal canal

Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation

Improved Laxity

The walls of the vaginal canal lose their tautness with the reduction of collagen fibers and following vaginal birth. Collagen production slows down with normal aging and genetics. Laxity affects sensation and satisfaction with intercourse as well as stress urinary incontinence and a woman’s confidence.

  • Juliet® – improved collagen production to the vaginal lining.
  • Geneveve™ – tightens vaginal tissue by increasing collagen and elastin fibers.
  • Vaginoplasty – women that have a greater degree of laxity may require a surgical procedure to tighten the vaginal canal.

Improved appearance

Tighten or remove excess labial tissue to either the minora or majora

Urinary incontinence is the leakage of urine when your laugh, cough, sneeze, or exercise. This occurs from the the loss of collagen to the vaginal lining and deeper tissue, laxity, and vaginal birth.
