Abstract

The vulvo-vaginal atrophy (VVA) is a chronic condition characterized by gradual involution of the mucous membranes and vulvo-vaginal tissues, which is manifested in the climacteric phase. Numerous therapeutic options, hormonal and non-hormonal, have been proposed to alleviate the symptoms related to VVA, but to date none of them is able to guarantee long-term effects. The use of Fractional CO2 Laser technology applied to the vulvo-vaginal area represents an innovative procedure to make a real "regeneration treatment" of the vaginal tissues. In fact, it is possible to spread the laser energy in the various layers of the vaginal wall, reactivating the synthesis of extracellular matrix and collagen, with the recovery of tissue tropism and improved VVA-related disorders
