Childbirth, aging, heredity, and hormonal changes are some of the reasons why the tissue and muscles of the vaginal canal can become lax over the years. Although cosmetic surgery procedures are available to restore vaginal tightness and firmness, but some women may prefer to choose non-surgical treatment options for vaginal rejuvenation.
Advanced technologies based on radio frequency and laser energy can be applied to achieve vaginal rejuvenation without involving surgery. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides cutting edge RF and laser procedures for vaginal rejuvenation to patients in Houston, Texas and surrounding communities and cities in this region of Texas.
RF Based Treatment
Radio frequency or RF based treatment systems can correct vaginal looseness and vulvar sagging without involving plastic surgery. An RF based procedure will deliver controlled and gentle waves of radio frequency in a completely non-invasive way directly to the affected vulvo-vaginal region.
The RF energy penetrates the deeper layers of the tissue and generates the required amount of heat to help tighten the external labia and internal vaginal laxity. The loose tissue will slowly contract to a tighter bundle. The application of heat energy to the underlying tissue will also stimulate the generation of fresh collagen fibers for improved volume.
Results are more natural looking and longer lasting because new collagen will continue to improve the tissue strength and volume from within, and may also support nerve and tissue healing. Therapeutic effects of RF in tissue and muscle healing are extensively documented by researchers.
Laser Based Treatment
Laser based treatments for vaginal rejuvenation can be performed using local anesthesia and light sedation. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The duration of the treatment may be around one hour, but can vary according to extent of vaginal laxity to be corrected. Both top and bottom walls of the vaginal passage can be treated with laser.
Advanced laser techniques can produce the desired results for vaginal rejuvenation in a minimally invasive way. The laser is used to perform the cutting and dissecting in a highly precise manner. If necessary, the surgeon may use sutures to tighten the vaginal muscles depending on the patient’s aesthetic and anatomical needs.
Following the treatment, a temporary vaginal pack is placed over the treated site and the patient is moved to a recovery room. In about one to two hours, the patient will be ready to leave the surgeon’s office accompanied by a responsible adult who can drive her home.
In addition to improving vaginal and labial laxity, RF and laser based treatments for vaginal rejuvenation can provide other benefits. The internal and external vaginal areas will be moisturized to reduce dryness. Mild stress incontinence in some women may also be addressed with these procedures.
Other advantages include:
- Both vagina and labia majora can be treated together
- Helps in vulvovaginal tissue tightening
- Promotes news collagen production
- Creates tighter, smoother, softer skin
- Minimal risk, discomfort, and downtime
