Vaginal rejuvenation refers to a number of minimally invasive procedures that can help tighten the pelvic floor muscles, increase lubrication, and enhance nerve function to promote more enjoyable sex. If your sexual function feels impaired, vaginal rejuvenation procedures can help relieve many common symptoms of sexual dysfunction.
Vaginal rejuvenation treatments may be right for you if you frequently experience common signs of sexual dysfunction, such as:
Many factors can increase your risk of sexual dysfunction, including:
The older you are, the less collagen you have to keep your connective tissues tight and firm. As a result, your vaginal tissues become less elastic. The vaginal opening also becomes smaller with age. This combination can lead to vaginal pain and dryness that makes sex less enjoyable.
Menopause is another sign of the aging process. When you start menopause, your estrogen levels plummet. The drop in estrogen may cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including low libido, vaginal dryness, and pain during sex.
Childbirth is a common risk factor for pelvic floor dysfunction, which makes it difficult to contract and relax the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic pain and urinary incontinence are uncomfortable symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction that can interfere with your sexual health and wellness.
Chinn GYN offers several non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments at its office, including:
Vitalia is an FDA-cleared vaginal tightening treatment that uses laser energy to stimulate collagen production and strengthen existing fibers. Along with tightening and toning the vaginal canal, Vitalia can improve sexual function and response, decrease urinary leakage, stimulate vaginal lubrication, and enhance nerve function in the vagina and clitoris.
The team at Chinn GYN can also apply this radiofrequency treatment on the external vulvar tissue to perform a non-surgical labiaplasty. The treatment can plump up the labia tissue to improve its external appearance and sexual response.
The Emsella chair is a noninvasive device that uses electromagnetic energy to trigger thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single treatment. By stimulating muscle contractions, Emsella can help treat urinary incontinence and enhance pelvic floor function in women.
