When it comes to sexual issues, many women wait longer than necessary to seek help. Embarrassment, body shame and self-consciousness can make discussing sexual issues with healthcare professionals difficult.
If you are unhappy with your vagina, there are nonsurgical procedures available to restore tightness and moisture. Understanding these procedures is an operative component of your decision to seek treatment.
How Does Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
As we age, the skin of the vagina can become loose and dry. Nonsurgical treatments use radio frequency waves to generate highly focused heat. The heat creates many tiny breaks in the vaginal skin. This stimulates collagen production as it heals, leaving you with tighter skin and producing more lubrication. This can make sex much more enjoyable for both partners.
What are the Risks?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a low-risk procedure. You may experience some mild discomfort that can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers. You may need to abstain from sex for this time period.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The standard practice may be three treatments spaced one month apart, with one optional treatment as a ‘touch up’ a year later. However, your treatment plan will depend on your individual needs. Some women choose to stop treatment after only one or two sessions because of satisfying results. Others choose the full course.
Who Shouldn’t Seek Vaginal Rejuvenation?
If you have an active outbreak of herpes, psoriasis or other skin afflictions, you will need to wait for the outbreak to clear to receive treatment. For those who have had previous surgery to the vagina, the surgeon will help ascertain if rejuvenation is safe for you, as scar tissue may not respond well to treatment.
Other than these few considerations, nearly everyone is a candidate for the procedure. Of course, you also need to be healthy. If you have diabetes, a history of cancer, heart trouble or other serious conditions, consult your doctor before receiving treatment.
