Vaginal Revitalization Q & A
What is vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization is a noninvasive treatment focused on restoring your vaginal health and function. Many women experience new issues after having a baby or starting menopause, and vaginal revitalization treatments at Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology may help.
What symptoms can vaginal revitalization treat?
Vaginal revitalization can help with many symptoms that commonly follow menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth. These can include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal itching
- Lack of natural lubrication
- Increased vaginal laxity
- Discomfort during sex
- Decreased sensation during sex
- Minor urinary incontinence
Because some of these changes may be at least partially related to hormone fluctuations, you might benefit from a combination of hormone replacement therapy and vaginal revitalization.
How does vaginal revitalization work?
Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology uses a state-of-the-art system that delivers low-level radiofrequency energy to your vaginal tissue using a slim wand.
Radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissue to stimulate your body's natural restorative responses, including:
Vaginal revitalization stimulates angiogenesis (new blood vessel growth) and increases blood circulation to improve vaginal lubrication and sensitivity.
Collagen is the natural protein that gives your vaginal tissue its firmness. It helps to strengthen your vaginal walls and the muscles around your urethra, which can decrease laxity and improve sensation. Collagen renewal can also help with stress urinary incontinence.
Elastin is the natural protein that helps your skin stretch and retract, which is why new elastin can improve the elasticity and strength of your vaginal walls.
Vaginal revitalization isn't uncomfortable, although you may experience some deep warmth during the treatment.
What is recovery like after a vaginal revitalization treatment?
One of the most impressive benefits of radiofrequency vaginal revitalization is that there’s no downtime whatsoever. You can schedule the session anytime that’s convenient and go back to your regular routine afterward.
The Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology team may recommend abstaining from hot baths and intercourse for a day or two, but in general, you can resume your daily activities with no disruption.
If you’re struggling with irritating and embarrassing problems like vaginal dryness, laxity, and poor lubrication, a vaginal radiofrequency treatment at Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology can be the completely noninvasive solution you need. Call the office or request an appointment online.
