Women undergo multiple changes in their lifetime due to ageing, hormones, childbearing and several other reasons. These situations can lead to change in their external genital organ, which directly affects their lives. Many women also suffer from different complications such as stress urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, unfavorable changes in labia majora, low erotic sensation and loss of lubrication. Thankfully, the modern day world is witnessing extreme awareness of these feminine health issues. Evidently, the treatment options for such problems are also emerging like never before. One such treatment is treating the vagina through non-surgical methods, also known as non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. Let’s know what it is all about.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation provides women suffering from genitalia issues, a way to get their treatment without undergoing surgery. The results for the non-surgical process reflect faster than the surgical processes. However, they may not be as dramatic. Usually, energy based treatments are the best to enhance vaginal tightness, and decrease and treat incontinence etc. These nonsurgical methods use focused energy generated through electromagnetic waves or CO2 laser to heat the tissues. The intention of these treatments is to improve the tightness, lubrication, blood vessel flow and collagen in the vagina. At times, doctors also use a filler to inject into the “G-spot” in the vagina or to enhance the clitoris. Notably, G-spot is not a technical term, as not all researchers believe that it exists. It is felt that it is a sensuaous point located the front wall of the vagina and that enhances excitability and also augments the orgasm of intercourse.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation works for treating vaginal laxity. This particular condition usually starts after vaginal delivery. In some cases, the patient goes through excessive stretching which leaves the vagina loose. Vaginal laxity usually occurs in women when they bear more than one baby or in case they deliver a larger baby. Also females who have had more than 2 childbirths are known to have vaginal laxity that they complain of.
The only thing needed to cure vaginal laxity is vagina tightening. Some people believe in going for isometric exercises such as Kegel exercises and floor training. However, not all doctors consider them effective. Surgical vaginoplasty has proven success rates.
Besides, several non-surgical methods use laser or radiofrequency energy, which can tighten the vaginal muscles and treat vaginal laxity.
• Some of the renowned brands offering devices for laser treatment include FemTouch, MonaLisa Touch, FemiLift, etc.
• Likewise, surgeons use RF devices of widely used brands like Viveve, Geneveve and ThermiVa.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation also works for treating the lost tone of labia majora. This situation occurs in women during pregnancy and hormonal changes, ageing, etc. Before starting the treatment, the plastic surgeon checks the labia majora to evaluate whether they have a lesser volume of skin and excessive skin.
There are two conditions of loss in the tone of labia majora.
• In the first one, the surgeon injects a certain amount of fat to revive lost fullness.
• In the second case, the patient feels excessive skin. Labia majoraplasty is a suitable option for the treatment of this condition.
In both these cases, non-surgical vaginal treatments are suitable if the condition is not dramatic. Doctors use RF and laser energy to treat such situations.
The process of laser treatment and RF treatment works by heating up the vaginal tissues. However, they are not as painful as people consider them to be. Both the processes are tolerable. The treatment methods are convenient because you can undergo them in a clinic as well. Make sure that only a board certified surgeon performs the treatment under good care.
Generally, patients don’t require any post-treatment medicines. This is because the vagina experiences minimal or no tenderness after the non-surgical treatments.
The patients may or may not get a vaginal discharge for a span of some days after the non-surgical vaginal treatment. The doctor may prescribe to refrain from using tampoons and indulging in sexual activities for a week after the treatment depending upon the device used for the procedure.
The surgeons perform the treatment by heating the tissues, which affect the collagen producing cells. The tightening of vaginal muscles may take up to one-month post surgery. When it is about tightening of labia majora through RF method, the results can appear instantly.
It is vital to choose the right surgeon for your treatment. Make sure you have checked the following qualities while finalizing a surgeon:
• The surgeon is able to carry out the treatment in certified facilities where there is intensive backup like in a hospital setting.
• The surgeon has completed his/her medical education from an accredited medical college or educational institute and is certified by the State Board. resrach him online and also get to visit some of her previous patients.
The surgical process closes the gap of vaginal muscles from where they were stretched apart. On the other hand, a non-surgical process tightens the muscles of the vagina by remodeling collagen. While the results of the non-surgical process are limited and less effective, a surgical vaginoplasty involves the risks of surgery and longer recovery time. Hence, you need to decide only after knowing all the pros and cons of both the procedures from your cosmetic plastic surgeon.
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation helps you to regain the tightness in your most sensitive organ that became loose due to pregnancy, hormonal changes or possibly because of the aging factor. If the loss of tone is less, non-surgical methods should be the way ahead. Possibly, you may choose for CO2 laser or Radio frequency treatment to heat the vaginal tissues and make its skin tighter and more firm. Yet again, due to the tenderness of this body part, you must approach only an experienced professional to perform the treatment, even if it is non-surgical.
