The Basics of Vaginal Rejuvenation

Posted on: 9 May 2019


After you have had babies, your vagina may not be as tight as it once was, and you may even suffer from urinary incontinence. Even though you can do exercises at home like Kegels that will work to tighten the vaginal wall, they may not do as much as a vaginal rejuvenation procedure would. To help you learn a little bit more about these procedures, this article will take a closer look at a few of the basics. Are you ready to learn some more? If so, then read on. 

What Does the Procedure Entail? 

There are two really popular types of vaginal rejuvenation procedures out there: PRP and laser. 


Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is great at helping restore all parts of your body, including your vagina. By extracting the PRP from your blood and then running it through a centrifuge, your doctor will be able to get the PRP ready for injections. Then from there, your doctor will use a needle to inject the PRP directly into the vaginal wall. Over a few months, the PRP will encourage the production of collagen within the vagina, which will help with sexual satisfaction and urinary incontinence. 


Another form of vaginal rejuvenation is a laser procedure. During this procedure, your doctor will insert a laser probe directly into the vagina. Then, the probe will heat up the vaginal wall to a high temperature. Once it has been heated up, it will signal your body's natural reaction to start healing itself which will create more collagen in the vaginal wall in the process. 

As a woman, it is your right to feel sexually satisfied and to not have to deal with urinary incontinence. Luckily, with a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, you can help get both of these things without ever having to go under the knife. If you feel like you are a good candidate for one of these procedures, contact a clinic like Dr. Marcos Cosmetic Surgery and MedSpa and ask them for a consultation. During your consultation, they will usually do a vaginal examination to see if they think you could benefit from these. Then, if you are a good candidate, they will schedule your procedure date. One thing to note about these procedures is that they aren't always covered by insurance because they are seen as something more elective than anything. However, your doctor may be able to work with your insurance company to figure it out.
