Vaginas come in all different shapes and sizes – that’s the beauty of them! However, childbirth, menopause, ageing & other life factors can change the anatomy & health of your vagina. These can lead to having a negative impact on the quality of your life.
Vaginal rejuvenation treatment is the umbrella term for treatments that aim to enhance the way the vagina looks, and to improve its function.
Many women find their self-esteem can become affected when they fall out of love with their vagina, and treatment can sometimes improve a woman’s general wellbeing and approach to sexual relationships in the future. But what are the precise reasons women turn to vaginal rejuvenation, and what specific type of treatment is out there?
Vaginal rejuvenation – who exactly is it for?
There are a whole host of reasons why women turn to vaginal rejuvenation treatment, and the expectations and outcomes depend on the individual’s concerns.
- Common reasons to have treatment include:
- To address aesthetic concerns
- To reduce the size of the labia and/or tighten the vagina to enhance comfort during intercourse. Women often opt for this after childbirth or as they grow older and their vagina reduces in laxity
- To treat urinary incontinency
- To improve libido
What kind of vaginal regeneration treatments are out there?
There are multiple different treatments out there for vaginal rejuvenation including:
Shelase Vaginal Regeneration: Works to restore the vagina externally and internally by treating issues like dryness, lost vaginal laxity and pain during intercourse.
O-Shot treatment: is said to increase arousal, improve lubrication and generate more functional tissue in the areas of sexual response in the vagina. By using the patient’s own blood and separating the platelets (PRP therapy), the treatment stimulates a restorative healing process to the injected areas. Younger and smoother skin around the vulva is also said to be a benefit of the O-shot.
Laser vaginal rejuvenation: As the name implies, this treatment uses laser technology to restore the vaginal wall. 4-6 treatment sessions are needed to achieve noticeable results and treatment works by stimulating new blood flow and tissues in the vagina.
Labiaplasty: this is the most commonly performed vaginal rejuvenation treatment, and aims to reduce the size of the labia, to achieve better aesthetics, increased comfort and enhanced pleasure during intercourse (labia folds that are larger can sometimes lead to pain). This is a surgical treatment that isn’t without risk – complications like infections, scarring and hematoma have been known to occur.
Before making a commitment to have a vaginal rejuvenation treatment, consider whether is the best way to improve your life.
