What Is Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation helps reshape, tighten, or reduce female genital tissue. It restores the tissue to a firmer and more youthful tone while enhancing its appearance. Women who get rejuvenation do so for cosmetic reasons and to improve comfort.
It also helps ease issues caused by lax vaginal tissue. There are surgical and nonsurgical options for vaginal rejuvenation. Here is what nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation is all about.
Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
This is an alternative to surgical treatment since it uses cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency to achieve results. The procedures are non-invasive, so patients need not worry about the consequences that come with invasive methods.
The energy from the radiofrequency helps contract the tissues and promotes collagen production in the area. The Viveve™ treatment does not use needles, incisions, or tissue ablation.
Reasons to Get Vaginal Rejuvenation
A large, misshapen, or sagging labia can affect a woman’s self-esteem. It can cause discomfort when wearing tight clothing or during exercise. Loss of tone can occur due to childbearing or because of menopause. It can lead to vaginal dryness, urinary leakage, and painful sexual intercourse.
Rejuvenation can help restore the tissue to a normal appearance and tone. The procedure can help:
Eliminate or reduce urinary incontinence
Reduce vaginal dryness
Improve sexual sensation
Provide cosmetic improvements
How the Rejuvenation Works
The procedure involves the use of cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency energy. The treatment helps firm lax mucosa and skin, improving elasticity. During the treatment, doctors insert a small device into the vaginal canal. It applies precise heat to vaginal tissue, resulting in a strengthened and more youthful vaginal wall.
The process stimulates the formation of new elastin and collagen fibers. The doctor rotates the device slowly to ensure even treatment of the vaginal canal. They then apply it to the labia and surrounding tissues to enhance the skin structure.
Benefits of the Rejuvenation
There are several benefits here, and some of these include:
It is a quick and painless treatment
Patients experience significant improvements within a day or two after the treatment
Improvements continue over time, and results can last one year
No downtime after treatment; patients can resume sexual intercourse the same day
It helps improve sexual pleasure for both partners
Reduce vaginal dryness
Relieve stress urinary incontinence
Reduces pain during sexual intercourse
Limitations of Nonsurgical Rejuvenation
Nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation is a good option for many women, but the option has some limitations. Those experiencing vaginal atrophy are good candidates. Those with severe sagging or tissue laxity may not benefit from the treatment.
The treatment is temporary, and patients need several sessions for optimal results. The results usually last around one year. Those with severe issues can get labiaplasty or other surgical options.
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation can help improve the vulva, labia, and vaginal canal. The treatment helps with functional and aesthetic issues. The length of the treatment will depend on the patient’s condition and treatment goals.
