We are quite impressed by Dr. Lee’s CV, which is why we invited this first-timer to SCALE. To get to know her we asked her a series of questions. Here are her answers.
Q: What motivated you to go into your field?
A: I had been working as a gynecologist especially focused on infertility and laparoscopy fields for more than 15 years. In recent years, I added vaginal rejuvenation and regenerative therapy into my clinical practice, setting up a new pioneer field in Asia, and surprisingly found out these therapies successfully rescued my patients from the annoying symptoms associated with vaginal relaxation syndrome and stress urinary incontinence. Among all the traditional treatments, it’s still really difficult to improve the patients’ sexual quality back to the youth stage. This is done only by hormone therapy or biofeedback treatment when they suffer from vaginal relaxation after birth or atrophic vaginitis after menopause. So the combination vaginal rejuvenation procedures opens a new era in women’s health.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your work?
A: Vaginal rejuvenation procedures did make my brain open another window for helping my patients who were bothered by sexual dissatisfaction due to vaginal relaxation syndrome. Before the vaginal laser was invented, those women suffered from both clinical symptoms such as loss of sexual sense due to vaginal loosening and the relationship crisis. Through the period of time that I developed the vaginal laser rejuvenation therapy, I witness many patients repair their relationships with their partners after receiving the procedure. This invisible precious reward keeps me so passionate on devoting myself to this field continuously to create a more harmonic sexual life among couples.
Q: Is there a particularly compelling success story that you can share with us?
A: Since early 2011, I had been using vaginal lasers for treating more than 3500 cases, PRP intimate injection more than 1200 cases and vaginal rejuvenation surgery more than 1000 cases in Taiwan and China. Now I am the director of eight centers specialized in vaginal rejuvenation and cosmetic PRP. I had been a consultant and instructor for teaching the clinical use and marketing of the vaginal rejuvenation field for more than five years.
Also, I travelled over Europe, USA, China and Singapore regularly giving the lectures & workshops related to vaginal laser, radiofrequency and vaginal rejuvenation surgeries. I used the laser to treat vaginal relaxation syndrome, stress urinary incontinence and vulva skin rejuvenation. Among all those cases, I performed vaginal relaxation syndrome tightening most often, and in 2015 we even combined using a pelvimetry measurement machine, developed by our own R&D team, to evaluate the real vaginal pressure before and after each treatment. We used the measuring data in consulting with our clients and found out that they were highly satisfied with our treatments.
So after we started to do the real vaginal pressure measurement for our clients, I collected some of the data and made it into a clinical study which is about the patients who received the vaginal laser procedure. We measured their vaginal pressure before and after each treatment. The results had been published in the lectures of aesthetic laser conferences in Europe, USA and Asia. And this data further helped more doctors to understand the real effects of the vaginal laser in relation to the vaginal relaxation syndrome in scientific based evidences.
Q: What do you want the general public to know about what you do?
A: In my opinion, women nowadays would definitely pay more attention to the beauty and function of the intimate parts with an unavoidable trend. The beauty of intimate parts did play a more important role in the field of vaginal rejuvenation consulting. I set up three major goals of vaginal rejuvenation: first is tightness, second is beauty and the third is pleasure (or orgasm). And the intimate parts have been already treated like another face in a women’s mind. Also the chief demand when they first came to see me had been getting more often targeted on the cosmetic concern of “the secret face”. So I often used the laser to rejuvenate the vulva skin after the gynecologic cosmetic surgeries and the patients were satisfied by improvement in the shape, the symmetry, the texture and also the color of the intimate parts- which are just the four important factors of creating cosmetic beauty.
Q: How do you relax, what are your hobbies?
A: I like to downhill ski and scuba dive as sport hobbies. Traveling to see different cultures also widens my visions. I already visited more than 28 countries in the world.
Q: Is there a particular case you wish would walk through your door?
A: I could not expect what kind of cases would walk through my door as everyday practice but I try my best to make every case happy and more confident about themselves.
Q: When people come to the SCALE workshop or talk you are giving, what do you hope they take away from their time with you?
A: “We are not only treating the vagina.” Actually vaginal rejuvenation is only a part of sex therapy. So this workshop is only a starting point, as there is much more to go to make the treatment for patients’ mind and soul complete.
