Non Surgical Vaginal Tightening
Aging, massive weight loss, childbirth can all have an impact on the functioning of the vaginal area this laxity and looseness can affect a woman’s sexual gratification, body image, comfort and self-confidence.
As the tone of the vaginal wall relates to the state of the collagen fibres, this loosening of tone can also be associated with reduction in sexual gratification, stress urinary incontinence, repeated vaginal infections.
Application of Thermal Ablative or Non-Ablative Energy using either Laser energy (like CO2 Laser) or using Radiofrequency energy can tighten the collagen fibres and supporting tissues of the vagina.
Non-surgical vaginal tightening can further help with reduction of stress urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and recurrent vaginal infection; in most patients it will have a positive impact on their sexual satisfaction.
This a question you and our specialist gynaecologist will sit down and answer, as only a gynaecological examination will reveal the nature of the issues you are experiencing.
As you can well understand there is a limit to how much tightening can be achieved non-surgically and there will be situations where you will be advised that a surgical intervention is a better option in your case.
At our clinic our gynaecologist will provide the procedure. After the first consultation you will be told if the degree of vaginal looseness needs 2 treatments or 3 – 4 treatments. Each treatment is done about 4 – 6 weeks apart, generally with a maintenance treatment once a year.
The procedure is very quick and relatively painless and in most instances, there is very little or no downtime.
You should not wear a tampon or have sexual intercourse for 5 – 7 days after the treatment to allow the tissues to settle down and heal, after which you can get back to your normal routine.
You should have an up to date PAP smear result within 1 year of the treatment, before we start the treatment. We advise our patients to wait at least 3 – 6 months after a vaginal delivery to have any tightening treatments. They should also not have the treatment while breast feeding. We plan your treatments when you are not having your menstrual cycle.
Other than some discomfort during and for a short while after the procedure these non-surgical techniques have very few adverse effects in most patients.
Most patients with mild laxity will notice the benefits as early as days to weeks following the treatment. While one treatment will not provide the final result, once achieved (through a series of treatments) the results are stable and long lasting.
Yes, there is evidence to suggest that there is an improvement in the degree of stress incontinence following a series of these treatments.
