Vaginal laxity is surprisingly common, and yet is often overlooked and a little talked about health concern for many women. Fortunately, there is no need to suffer in silence as there are ways to treat vaginal laxity and improve your quality of life with non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.
What Causes Vaginal Laxity?
A study conducted with over 400 women who had experienced vaginal childbirth found that more than 50% of them reported some vaginal laxity. This condition occurs when the vaginal and the introital area stretch as a result of childbirth or ageing. Unfortunately, laxity may lead to loss of lubrication in the vaginal area, inability to attain orgasm, and decreased sensation during intercourse. Other possible causes can include excessive sexual activity, trauma to the vagina, certain genetic disorders, menopause, and multiple vaginal births.
Research indicates that about 76% of women will experience this problem at some point during their lives. Because of these unfortunate symptoms, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is increasing in popularity as the symptoms of laxity can affect a woman’s sense of well-being and overall sense of sexuality. Not so long ago, the only vaginal rejuvenation treatments used to entail a surgical process and the so-called ‘designer vagina’ became the go-to treatment for the rich and famous.
However, vaginal surgery has some pitfalls. Surgical procedures have longer recovery time and depending on the type of vaginal surgery performed, you will probably not be able to engage in sexual intercourse for around six weeks following your surgery. It is also important to note that with any surgical procedure there are a few risks, including the risk of infection, a loss of sensation, and scarring. Some women can also experience an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic, and surgery is not ideal for those ladies that may want to have more children vaginally in the future.
Why Do Women Desire Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Women may seek non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, either for cosmetic reasons or to have a better quality of life. For the many ladies that have experienced stress urinary incontinence following childbirth, for instance, vaginal rejuvenation can be the answer to their prayers allowing them to enjoy activities again that would previously have caused leakage.
Doctors and midwives espouse the many benefits of pelvic floor training and Kegel exercises to tighten the vaginal muscles, however, these exercises are not intended to tighten the muscles of the vagina directly; instead, they may be used to help strengthen and tighten the pelvic floor muscles that surround the vagina.
ThermiVa: Revolutionary Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment
ThermiVa is a revolutionary treatment that employs the use of radiofrequency technology. The temperature of the vaginal tissue is gently raised using the device, which encourages and stimulates collagen growth, as well as regenerating the tissue structure to achieve the desired effect.
A course of ThermiVa treatments delivers an impressive list of benefits, including the reduction of mild urinary stress incontinence, and increased blood flow, nerve supply, sensation, and moisture in the area. Incredibly, the visible results are noticeable immediately following the initial treatment, as are functional results, although these will continue to develop over the course of three sessions and beyond. We recommend having ThermiVa once a year following your initial three sessions in order to experience continued positive results.
At PHI Clinic, patient comfort is tantamount and we are happy to report that unlike vaginal surgery, ThermiVa is almost entirely pain-free and is suitable for use on patients who have had children and/or plan to have them in the future. You are an ideal candidate for this non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment if you have encountered vaginal loosening, have reduced sexual satisfaction or libido, or are experiencing leakage problems caused by either childbirth or natural ageing. The treatment is non-invasive and there is no downtime associated with ThermiVa, meaning normal activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure.
