Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® for the Enhancement of Sexual Gratification
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) is a one-hour outpatient surgical procedure designed to enhance sexual gratification. According to Master and Johnson, sexual gratification is directly related to the amount of frictional forces generated. We can accomplish this with LVR. LVR is the modification of a gynecological surgical procedure used for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. Our laser techniques result in gentle precision procedures with controlled accuracy that ensures relatively bloodless surgery. Our pioneered techniques result in rapid healing and resumption of daily activities in a short period of time.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation® (LVR®) will effectively enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. It will also effectively decrease the internal and external vaginal diameters as well as build up and strengthen the perineal body (see figure below). In vaginal relaxation, the muscles are relaxed and have poor tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters increase. The muscles of the perineum are weak and poorly supported. Under these circumstances, the vagina is no longer at its optimum physiological state. As a result, the sensual side of sexual gratification is diminished. LVR was designed to enhance sexual gratification for women, who for whatever reason lack an overall optimum architectural integrity of the vagina.
Our mission is to empower women with knowledge, choice, and alternatives.
We encourage our laser vaginal surgery patients to participate in their healthcare and surgical design. In one of our patient surveys, women were asked: do women want to be loose or relaxed or do women want to be tight? Women answered 100% – women want to be tight. LVR can accomplish whatever you desire.
We have learned a tremendous amount from listening to women we have treated from over 35 states and 20 countries. From all over the world, women come to us for vaginal tightening surgery in Michigan because they want knowledge, choice, and alternatives. Women want their gynecologist to listen to them and provide viable solutions. Women throughout this nation and the world have told us that Kegels do not provide the vaginal tightening they want – but no one is listening. Women who have had children want a solution to rejuvenate the vagina and achieve the best sexual experience possible. For women with no children, solutions are available through design modification to accomplish their desires.
No one wants to age or lose optimal function anywhere, and this includes the vaginal and vulvar structures. LVR is the solution. We have found that the vaginal and vulvar issues women are self-conscious about can be solved with LVR. For vaginal rejuvenation in Michigan, Dr. Berenholz and the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute have the experience you can trust.
Patients with involuntary loss of urine with coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising, or sex can have their stress urinary incontinence corrected along with enhancement of sexual gratification.
As a sexual biological organism, women are superior to men
Women are multiorgasmic. The female sexual response cycle is unimpeded by a required refractory period that prevents successive orgasms in the male.
Principal understanding of the physiology of the human sexual response emanates from observational research studies by William H. Masters, M.D. and Virginia E. Johnson. The researchers tested 382 women and 312 men in more than 10,000 episodes of sexual activity. They also studied more than 7,500 cycles (one cycle is an individual episode of sexual activity) of female sexual response during intercourse, masturbation or oral sex. They were the first researchers to put forth a four stage model that described and explained these natural physiologic changes. The four stages are excitation, plateau, orgasm, and resolution.
We developed the LVR program by listening and caring about the needs of women in this area of sexual gratification. We also integrated the historical research of Masters and Johnson into the ultimate individual design of each of the laser surgical procedures. Women of the world inspired all of the surgical designs. For this, we as well as present and future patients thank the “true pioneers” and inspirational forces that made Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation a reality… WOMEN.

Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a one hour or less outpatient surgical procedure. The procedure is designed to enhance the feelings of sexual gratification. This is accomplished through a reconstruction process of vital areas of vaginal relaxation that are essential to sexual gratification, namely the outer third of the vagina, the orgasmic platform, internal and external vaginal diameter, introitus, and perineal body. (See figure 1).
Laser vaginal rejuvenation for the enhancement of sexual gratification is the modification of a standard existing gynecologic vaginal surgery used throughout the world for the treatment of vaginal relaxation and its associated symptoms, primarily that of stress urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine with stress such as exercise, etc.).
Vaginal relaxation is the loss of the optimum structural architect of the vagina. In the vaginal relaxation process, the vaginal muscles become relaxed with poor tone, strength, control and support. The internal and external vaginal diameters can greatly increase. The muscles of the perineum (the group of supporting muscles right outside the vaginal opening at the bottom) thin and separate in the midline producing a weakened, poorly supportive, thinned out perennial body.
Under these circumstances the vagina is no longer at its physiologically optimum sexual functioning state. In short, the sensual side of female sexual gratification is diminished. Thus, vaginal relaxation has a detrimental effect on sexual gratification because of the reduction of sexual feelings or pleasure.
