Childbirth brings about a lot of changes, especially the vagina. So, it’s not surprising to find women looking for vaginal tightening treatments. Even though they want to go for such treatments, surgery is something they generally want to stay away from. That’s when non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help. In fact, for many, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is a way to increase sexual pleasure, and also give a boost to their confidence. Let’s find out what is non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation and if it can help to improve your sex life post-baby.
HealthShots connected with Dr Sarika Gupta, Senior Consultant, Oncology and Robotic Gynaecology, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi, to know all about non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
As the name suggests, vaginal rejuvenation is one of the vaginal corrective treatments. These procedures are not just about improving sex life, but pitched for wellness too. They can be performed for beautifying purposes or to address ageing and other issues such as:
• Lack of vaginal tightness
• Decreased urinary controls
• Reduced libido
• Extremely dry genital area
• Pain while having sex
• Decreased sexual satisfaction and sensation
• Insecurities or low self-esteem.
Dr Gupta says that vaginal rejuvenation is carried out by gynaecologists or plastic surgeons primarily for sexual reasons, making it one of the most contentious genital cosmetic surgical interventions.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies women can try
Want to tighten and tone the vaginal area without the use of any surgery or needles? Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help you as they use highly intensive energy to facilitate contraction of tissues and production of collagen in the vulvovaginal tissues, says the expert.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment options –
1. Treatment with a CO2 laser
The laser heats the tissue in vagina’s upper layers, stimulating the production of more collagen in the tissue in the lower layers. This firms and tightens the skin, something that will ultimately help to enjoy sex more (how to do vaginal tightening).
2. Radio frequency therapy
Electromagnetic waves, similar to those used in microwaves, are used in RF treatment with a lesser impact. RF waves stimulate blood flow and collagen production in the vaginal tissue.
Right age for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies
You might be wondering if you are too young or too old for opting for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies. The expert says that such treatments are usually done after childbirth for vaginal tightening, but can be done at any age (ways your vagina changes post-pregnancy).
How long does it last?
Once you go for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies, they require regular sessions after around 3 to 4 weeks. About 4 to 6 therapy sessions are given and you might also need maintenance therapy.
Side effects of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies
There are no visible side effects of non-surgical rejuvenation therapies, but some women might experience mild itching or pain for some time. The good thing is that the side effects of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies won’t stay for long. So, if you are looking for better post-baby sex life, try non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies.
