What Franklin, TN women need to know about vaginal rejuvenation
Women of all ages in Franklin, TN are living healthier, more active, and more social lives than ever. Yet, many women still quietly suffer from a decline in their quality of life, as age or motherhood take a toll on their feminine health. If you are among them, nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation from CoolSprings Laser, Aesthetic & Skin Care Center may be the solution you’ve been seeking.
Causes and symptoms of vaginal laxity
Natural childbirth causes a considerable amount of strain and damage to vaginal tissue. Even after you have healed, stretched-out tissue is likely to remain lax, especially if you’ve had multiple children or birthed a very large baby. Motherhood is probably the most common and best-known cause of vaginal laxity, but the problem can affect women who have no children. Other causative factors include age, hormonal changes, and more.
What happens when vaginal tissue becomes tired and lax? Women commonly experience lack of sensation, discomfort, impaired sexual function, and generally reduced quality of life. Another common, though rarely discussed, problem is urinary stress incontinence. That means you might leak a little urine when you cough, laugh, or sneeze. You may be surprised to learn that tightening loose vaginal tissue can often improve or stop urinary stress incontinence.
Options for vaginal rejuvenation
Childbirth, hormonal changes, and other factors including the passage of time affect a woman’s genitalia in many ways. As a result, countless women are living with urinary stress incontinence, vaginal dryness or laxity, loss of tissue structure, and pain or reduced sensation during sex. In past generations these problems were rarely discussed, and there were few options for improving symptoms. Thankfully, all of that has changed.
What is vaginoplasty?
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens and restores tissues in the vagina. It may be considered a cosmetic or restorative procedure. Cosmetic vaginoplasty is intended to improve the appearance of the vaginal area. It is often performed in conjunction with labiaplasty, which is surgical rejuvenation of the labia. Restorative vaginoplasty, also called vaginal reconstruction, also has aesthetic benefits, but it is intended to correct or improve incontinence, pain, symptoms of laxity, and other medical concerns.
Like any surgery, these procedures carry certain risks such as infection. Additionally, these procedures are usually not recommended for women who may become pregnant in the future. For future moms, women who aren’t healthy enough for surgery, and those who don’t have time for extended recovery, nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation procedures are recommended.
What is nonsurgical vaginal tightening?
Today, there are several devices that can firm and heal feminine tissue, without surgery or significant downtime. They work with therapeutic energy, usually lasers, which strengthen and rejuvenate collagen for gentle yet effective skin tightening.
If you’ve ever had noninvasive skin tightening treatment on your face or body, then you already have a good idea of how vaginal treatment works. The concept is essentially the same. Laxity anywhere on the body is nearly always associated with collagen breakdown, stretching of fibers, and tissue damage. Energy based treatments help tighten and repair tissue, while increasing the development of new collagen.
Is laser vaginal rejuvenation right for you?
The best way to answer that question is through a one-on-one consultation with an experienced medical care provider. Your intimate health and wellbeing are essential to your quality of life.
