As the years go by, our bodies change—and intimate areas are no exception. Childbirth and aging can affect vaginal health, but many women feel uncomfortable discussing this topic. However, vaginal changes are perfectly natural, and vaginal rejuvenation can help repair the damage caused by pregnancy, hormonal fluctuation, and age. With the right med spa treatments, women can feel comfortable in their skin once more.
When it comes to medical procedures, there’s no shame in asking thoughtful questions. For this blog post, we’ll cover some of the most commonly asked vaginal rejuvenation questions we hear from our Vero Beach patients.
How does vaginal rejuvenation work?
The term “vaginal rejuvenation” can cover a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options. At White Orchid Spa, our nurse practitioners use diVa™, a hybrid fractional laser that tightens the vagina and increases sensitivity.
This laser gently heats the vaginal walls with 2 simultaneous laser beams. One of the lasers thickens the vaginal wall, while the other stimulates new collagen production to help tighten tissue. The procedure typically takes only 3 to 5 minutes, and most women need 3 treatments scheduled a month or 2 apart. Follow-up treatments are recommended every 12 months to maintain results.
Does vaginal rejuvenation hurt?
The procedure is quick and involves little discomfort. A numbing agent is applied to the treatment area beforehand to help patients feel as comfortable as possible. Our nurse practitioners are also available to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Your provider won’t start treatment until you feel safe and secure.
During the procedure, patients can expect to feel slight pressure against the vaginal wall. Some may experience temporary sensitivity near the vaginal opening.
Can vaginal rejuvenation improve my sex life?
For women who struggle with looseness after childbirth, vaginal rejuvenation can increase vaginal muscle tone and enhance sensation, leading to a more satisfying sex life. Many women report that treatment helps them feel more confident and comfortable during intimacy.
Vaginal rejuvenation can combine with an O-Shot®, a nonsurgical treatment that can improve the ability to orgasm.
Can vaginal rejuvenation help women with menopause?
Menopause—and the decrease in estrogen—can cause vaginal tissues to become dry, thin, and inflamed. Decreased blood flow reduces elasticity and other healthy functions.
Vaginal rejuvenation repairs the tissue and enhances natural lubrication. It can also help prevent involuntary urine leakage (urinary incontinence), which is a common issue among post-menopausal women.
Vaginal health and comfort can play a huge part in a woman’s quality of life. Never be ashamed to ask questions and learn more about treatment options.
