As you get older, collagen in the skin starts to break down, causing the skin to lose its elasticity. This can occur anywhere on the body, including the vagina. Certain medical events, such as having children and undergoing a hysterectomy, can make the problem even worse. Women who birth large children are especially at risk. Smoking can also cause the skin to prematurely breakdown.
One treatment to improve the tightness of the vagina is non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that involves the use of a laser on the affected vaginal tissue. The laser disperses heat to the inner layers of the vaginal tissue, causing the skin to produce more collagen and elastic, tightening the vagina. It's a pain-free alternative that requires no anesthesia or numbing cream. Here are just a few of the benefits of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.
1. You Only Need a Few Treatments to Achieve Results
If you have a busy lifestyle, you may be leery of committing to a plan that requires multiple, long-term treatments. Fortunately, you only need a handful of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments to achieve your desired results. Your doctor can help you decide how many treatments are suitable for your needs. You'll schedule your treatments a couple weeks to a month a part.
Though some patients are happy after one treatment, many women decide to have additional treatments to obtain their desired results.To maintain the results, expect to have maintenance treatments on an annual or bi-annual basis.
2. There's Minimal Downtime from the Procedure
A disadvantage of surgical vaginal rejuvenation is that it typically has a lengthy period of downtime. You may have to take time off work to recover, and after your surgery, you'll have to abstain from sex and exercise until you are completely healed.
There's no period of required downtime after non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. It's possible to resume sexual activities, exercise, and other activities of daily life immediately after your treatment sessions. You don't have to worry about stitches or incisions, and you'll experience no post-procedure pain.
3. Your Family Doesn't Have to be Complete to Have the Procedure
To qualify for surgical vaginal rejuvenation, most doctors state that you should be done having children. With non-surgical treatments, you can schedule sessions even if you aren't sure your family is complete.
Though you may need another round of sessions if you have more children, in the meantime, you can experience all of the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation, such as increased lubrication, heightened sensitivity, and decreased incontinence.
