Background: The labia majora area and the perineum are covered with skin similar to that of the rest of the body. So, it develops similar aging signs including loss of elasticity and often hyperpigmentation. Fractional CO2 laser and RF technology have been used to tighten skin in this area however these technologies are typically associated with substantial treatment and post- treatment discomfort. This study was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a 650 microsecond pulsed Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser for the skin tightening and skin lightening in the female external genital organs area.
Study Design/Materials and Method: 25 female subjects aged 40 to 50 years with Fitzpatrick skin types I to III underwent 5 treatments in 4 week intervals with a 650 microsecond pulsed Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser (Aerolase, Tarrytown, NY). Subjects were evaluated after each treatment and 12 weeks after the last one. Prior to treatment, all genital organs area and surrounding skin was cleaned with chlorhexidine and pap smear test was performed. Five to eight passes of non-overlapping pulses with a 6 mm spot size…
