Viginal Tissue

Figure: a) Atrophic vaginal mucosa, before treatment; b) 2 months after laser: note the lamina propria newly formed connective tissue with vessel-rich papillae, the thick stratified squamous epithelium, and normally shedding superficial cells.; c) normal vaginal mucosa of a fertile-age woman. Based on ex vivo histological findings, clinical application of microablative fractional CO2 laser on the atrophic vagina could determine a reverse process toward restoration to a premenopausal state (B=C). This is an intriguing and fascinating premise. Menopause, Vol. 22, No. 8, 2015
