You deserve to feel comfortable and confident every day, regardless of your age or undergoing childbirth. Unfortunately, common vaginal problems can diminish women’s self-esteem, especially in intimate settings.
Vaginal rejuvenation can change that. As an increasingly popular solution to vaginal laxity, dryness, pain, and sexual dissatisfaction, vaginal rejuvenation is a leading procedure at our clinic.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a term used to describe surgical and non-surgical treatments that tighten and enhance the vaginal tissues. More women are turning to vaginal rejuvenation each year for improved comfort and confidence, with the global vaginal rejuvenation market expected to grow at an annual rate of 13.1% by 2030.
Why Do People Get Vaginal Rejuvenation?
People get vaginal rejuvenation to address a variety of conditions, namely:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal pain and painful intercourse
- Vaginal laxity
- Loss of sexual satisfaction
- Loss of sensation during intercourse
- Urinary incontinence
- Loss of confidence
- Loss of tone of the labia majora
These symptoms are often spurred by the natural aging process and/or childbirth. However, genetic factors can also contribute to conditions that benefit from vaginal rejuvenation.
What Are the Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The far-reaching benefits of vaginal rejuvenation continue to make it a popular treatment at WellMedica. These benefits include:
- Improved confidence and self-image
- Relief from urinary incontinence
- Greater sexual satisfaction and sensation
- A more youthful appearance of the vaginal tissues
- Relief from vaginal pain and dryness
What Are the Different Types of Vaginal Rejuvenation?
There are two main types of vaginal rejuvenation: non-surgical and surgical.
Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation tightens and tones the vaginal tissues without incisions or significant downtime. Typically, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation involves energy-based treatments, which use radiofrequency or laser energy to stimulate collagen tightening, lubrication, and circulation. These treatments require little to no downtime and rarely cause patient discomfort. At WellMedica, we offer multiple non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation options, including:
Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
When non-surgical treatments don’t provide the desired results, surgical vaginal rejuvenation may be required. This is typically true in cases of severe vaginal laxity. Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are the most common surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
How Long Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Last?
The results of vaginal rejuvenation can last a lifetime. Viveve, for example, is a one-and-done vaginal rejuvenation treatment. However, another childbirth or other factors may create the need for additional treatments. Also, women who undergo energy-based vaginal rejuvenation may opt for yearly touch-up treatments to continually tighten the affected tissues.
How Long Should I Wait to Have Sex After Vaginal Rejuvenation?
After non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, physicians typically recommend that patients wait for at least three days before having sex. For surgical vaginal rejuvenation, patients will need to abstain from sex for four to six weeks.
