Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQs
- Posted on: Jun 15 2018
As women get older, decreasing estrogen levels can lead to tissue inflammation, thinning of the vaginal walls, and decreased lubrication. Menopause is generally the most common reason for these changes, but they can also occur with breastfeeding, chemotherapy, childbirth, and medical procedures like hysterectomy. Regardless of what is causing these issues, the discomfort they can cause can be distracting at best and distressing at worst.
In the past, women would simply have to put up with these uncomfortable issues. But, thankfully, we’re able to help women with relief via the Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure. If you or someone you know is currently dealing with issues relating to vaginal changes, keep reading to learn about vaginal rejuvenation.
What can be treated with Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal relaxation, which can occur from childbirth and aging, can lead to many issues. Uncomfortable sex or decreased sexual sensation are both common issues that women are looking to resolve, though sex isn’t the only thing that can be helped with vaginal rejuvenation. In certain cases, women experience tampons falling out, popping sounds while walking, and even urinary incontinence.
If sex is an issue, then keep in mind that vaginal rejuvenation can help bring back sensation, because one of the main results of vaginal rejuvenation is increased vaginal tightness (and thus more friction).
How long does it take to perform?
The Votiva procedure is a laser vaginal rejuvenation option that doesn’t require surgery. Laser and radiofrequency energies are used to help increase new collagen in the vagina and the vulva to help firm the areas. Sessions can be performed comfortably in a doctor’s office, and take between thirty to forty five minutes. We recommend three treatments, each spaced one month apart for the best results.
What is recovery like?
The great thing about Votiva is that there is no true “downtime,” like that which comes with other surgeries. You might feel some sensitivity or minor discomfort for a few days after the procedure (the average is 2-3 days). Wait one week prior to engaging in sexual intercourse. That’s it!
