Vaginal rejuvenation refers to several procedures used to improve the aesthetic appearance and overall function of your vagina.
As you get older, your vagina experiences a variety of changes. Some of these are a result of the natural aging process; others occur following childbirth. Although these changes affect everyone differently, they commonly result in vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, and a lack of lubrication.
Vaginal rejuvenation provides a safe and effective way to address these and other issues. You may want to consider vaginal rejuvenation if you’re postmenopausal or finished having children.
At Comprehensive Urology, the caring team offers several types of vaginal rejuvenation, including:
ThermiVa is a non-surgical, non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses targeted bursts of radiofrequency energy to encourage the production of collagen and tissue regeneration.
Undergoing a series of ThermiVa treatments spaced several weeks apart, improves lubrication, lowers the incidence of urinary incontinence, and enhances orgasms. There’s no downtime or recovery period, so you can return to regular activity as soon as you leave the office.
Additionally, most women notice an improvement in their symptoms right away. Following a series of appointments, your results last for nine months to two years. The team recommends followup treatments every one or two years.
Labiaplasty, or vulval surgery, is an operation designed to minimize the size of your labia minora––the flaps of skin on either side of the vaginal opening. You might want to consider this treatment if the appearance of your labia minora makes you feel self-conscious.
You may benefit from labiaplasty if your labia minora causes itching, irritation, or general discomfort during exercise or sexual intercourse. Labiaplasty requires a longer recovery period than ThermiVa, but the results are permanent.
To determine the type of vaginal rejuvenation that’s right for you, schedule an appointment at Comprehensive Urology.
During your consultation, your provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you about your treatment goals. They also take photos, discuss the treatment process in-depth, and inform you about your options for anesthesia.
Make sure to ask questions during your appointment. It’s normal to feel some anxiety, but there’s no need to worry. The caring providers want to improve your health and vitality so you can live confidently.
