What is vaginal rejuvenation?
The term vaginal rejuvenation refers to a group of procedures. In the case of the external genitalia area, the treatments seek to improve the appearance of the internal or external labia, or both, with the intention of achieving a more youthful appearance. But they also help other medical problems. Below we explain some of the treatments.
Labiaplasty (For the external part)
A minor surgery in which excess skin is removed from the internal or external labia. Fat grafts can be placed on the labia majora to improve their volume and aesthetics. The procedure does not require hospitalization.
Vaginoplasty (For the internal part)
It is also known as “anterior and posterior repair.” Sutures are placed inside the vagina canal to create a kind of corset and reduce the diameter of the vaginal canal. It must be performed in a surgery center, requires anesthesia and several days of rest are recommended. The patient should not perform physical activities or be intimate for a period of three to four weeks. It is recommended for patients suffering from bladder prolapse, rectum or urinary incontinence.
The minimally invasive procedure with radiofrequency technology
It is a procedure with electromagnetic waves that generate heat in order to reshape the collagen fibers and improve the elasticity of the vaginal area. It is ambulatory, does not require the use of anesthesia and the patient can resume his daily activities almost immediately, including sports and intimate relationships. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. Five to six treatments with a period of three to four weeks in between are recommended. Recommended maintenance every two years.
Minimally invasive procedures with laser technology
It is a laser alternative that provides an ablative (aggressive) treatment that is achieved with 10,600 nm laser energy. This means that it is the highest energy that a laser of this type can offer, but fractionated, that is, it is located in the area under treatment and thus the restoration of collagen and elastin is promoted. It helps improve area lubrication and correct the problem of urinary incontinence.
It can be used on the outside of the vaginal area. The procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes, does not require the use of anesthesia and although the patient can resume his daily routine, it is advisable to refrain from intimacy the first three days. The ideal is four to five treatments, with one session every four weeks. A series of maintenance treatments are recommended at least every two years.
It is considered a non-ablative laser treatment (less aggressive). An alternative with few adverse effects that improve the elasticity of the neck of the vagina and bladder, as well as lubrication. Each treatment lasts between 30 to 40 minutes and four to five treatments are recommended, with one session every four weeks. No anesthesia is required or an extended recovery period, although intimacy should be avoided during the first three days.
