Who Can Benefit from Vaginal Rejuvenation?

It may not be as popular as a facelift (at least not yet), but vaginal rejuvenation is certainly growing in popularity, helping women take control of their lives in new and very personal ways. At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, our doctors use advanced methods of vaginal rejuvenation to help women in McLean and Dulles, Virginia, feel more comfortable and more confident.

There are lots of reasons to undergo vaginal rejuvenation, either on its own or as part of a mommy makeover. If you’re wondering if vaginal rejuvenation is right for you, here are four of the most common reasons to consider. 

#1. Restore the vagina following childbirth

Vaginal childbirth takes a huge toll on your body, and an especially major toll on your vagina. During vaginal birth, the tissues of the vagina are stretched and pulled to allow the baby’s shoulders (the widest part) to emerge. 

Even though the vagina is “designed” to be flexible, that amount of stretching can cause tissue damage that prevents the vagina from resuming its pre-pregnancy state. In fact, sometimes the vagina can become so “loose,” women find it difficult to keep a tampon in place.

Beyond those issues, vaginal laxity also decreases friction and sensation inside the vagina, leading to a loss of sexual pleasure. Many women (and their partners) suffer from a considerable amount of stress, anxiety, and even depression as a result. Vaginal rejuvenation can help restore lax tissues for better function and greater sexual pleasure.

#2. Treat minor urinary incontinence

In many women, vaginal laxity also leads to urinary incontinence. When the vaginal tissues are weak or lax, they can no longer support the bladder adequately. As a result, you may notice leaks and “dribbles” throughout the day, especially when you sneeze or cough or during physical activities, including sex.

Many women with urinary incontinence find themselves limiting the activities they once enjoyed. It’s also not uncommon to feel anxious, sad, or stressed as a result of incontinence symptoms. By restoring vaginal tone, mild urinary incontinence can be corrected for a better quality of life.

#3. Enhance vaginal lubrication

Your vagina naturally produces lubricants to keep it healthy and firm. As you approach menopause, estrogen production declines dramatically, leaving you more prone to vaginal dryness. While menopause is a major cause of vaginal dryness, it can also be caused by other factors, like pregnancy, breastfeeding, or smoking.

Inadequate lubrication leads to pain during intercourse, along with irritation, itching, and dryness throughout the day. Vaginal rejuvenation promotes the development of collagen, a special protein that supports optimal vaginal health and improves natural lubrication.

#4. Improve aesthetics — and confidence

For women as for men, the genitalia are a source of sexual confidence. If you’re happy with the way your vagina looks and “works” during intimate moments, you’re more likely to enjoy yourself (and your partner). 

While you can’t entirely restore your vaginal area to the way it looked when you were 18, vaginal rejuvenation can turn back the clock on a lot of changes that occur because of childbirth, weight changes, hormonal fluctuations, and other health and lifestyle issues. That means you can feel more confident during intimacy and focus on what’s really important to you and your partner.
