Five Reasons Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation May Be Right for You

Women are finally talking. They’re talking to their friends and their doctors about vaginal health issues and sexual satisfaction, or lack thereof. Thanks to all that talk, physicians are taking notice and offering solutions for women to improve their sex lives with nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation.

Bearing children, getting older, and changes in hormones can all affect your vagina, causing loss of vaginal muscle tone, a decrease in lubrication, and a lack of pleasure during sex. These vaginal changes may also be partly responsible for urinary incontinence.

If you’ve never heard about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, you’re not alone, which is why we’re talking about it. Here at Stirling Skin Care, Dr. Cory and Dr. Renee use the Lumenis® FemTouch™ CO2 laser system to improve vaginal health and give you back your sexual pleasure.

Here are a few reasons you may want to consider nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation.

1. Simplicity of the procedure

When it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, you have two options: surgical or nonsurgical. The surgical procedure is a type of plastic surgery that tightens your vagina by removing excess skin and tightening the area with sutures. Anesthesia and a long recovery are needed for surgical vaginal rejuvenation.

That’s not the case for nonsurgical rejuvenation, because the in-office procedure is simple and fast, with no incisions or sutures. Dr. Renee or Dr. Cody insert the laser wand into your vagina. The laser energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that keep your vaginal walls toned and supple. The procedure is relatively painless and takes 10 minutes.

2. Fast recovery

Unlike surgical vaginal rejuvenation, there’s no downtime associated with laser vaginal rejuvenation. You may experience some discharge and mild discomfort, but most women don’t need to take any pain medication following the procedure. You may need to refrain from intercourse and using tampons for a time after laser treatment -- just follow your doctor’s instructions.

Results aren’t immediate, however. For many women, it takes about a month for noticeable changes in the tissues and sensations. For best results, the team at Stirling Skin Care recommends two to four treatments spaced every month or so.

3. Restores vaginal health

Childbirth and age lead to stretching of the vaginal muscles, causing loss of tone, or what’s commonly referred to as vaginal laxity. Many women don’t talk about this, but this laxity is one reason you may no longer find pleasure in sex. Laser treatment restores vaginal health by creating new collagen and elastin to improve tone as well as function, including restored vaginal lubrication.

4. Improved sexual pleasure

After nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, women report a significant improvement in sexual satisfaction. The tightening of the vaginal area improves sensation for more pleasure. The treatment also changes the vaginal tissues to improve natural lubrication, which reduces pain.

An improvement in your sex life also leads to a better body image and overall quality of life.

5. Reduce stress urinary incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence is when you accidentally urinate during physical activity, such as coughing or lifting a heavy object. Childbirth can lead to weakened urinary muscles, which is why stress incontinence is common in women.

Although nonsurgical rejuvenation works on the vagina, the tightening of those muscles may also help improve urinary muscle tone. This is a fairly new discovery and researchers are investigating the effects and benefits of laser rejuvenation treatments on stress urinary incontinence.
