As women, we get to experience the miracle of creating life, and there’s no way to describe the pleasure and pain of giving birth to a brand-new human being. Of course, nothing in life is free, and for many women, the price of bringing a baby into the world is damage to the body, particularly the birth canal.
Whether you’ve had one or more children, or you’re simply getting older (or both), you may start to notice changes in the vaginal area, including a lack of tightness and elasticity that causes problems like urinary incontinence, or reduced lubrication that impacts pleasure during intercourse, or even results in painful intercourse. These issues can have negative effects on your quality of life and your confidence, causing you to avoid activities you once enjoyed.
The good news is, there is a range of vaginal rejuvenation treatments that can help you to overcome such issues, whether they occur postpartum or they’re age-related. Here’s what every woman should know about treatments like RejuVanate and the Sweet Spot Shot and the benefits they offer.
Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Right for Me?
Even for women who are relatively open and comfortable talking about their bodies, it can be hard to broach intensely personal subjects like vaginal dryness, loss of pleasure during intercourse, or stress incontinence that causes you to pee a little when you laugh or sneeze, for example. You might also be embarrassed by issues like the cosmetic appearance of your labia, or even feel discomfort associated with larger labia. These problems plague many women at different points in their lives and can be persistent.
However, you don’t have to let these issues change the way you live, or how you enjoy your life. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures can help in a variety of ways. You simply have to discuss your particular concerns with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine which form of vaginal rejuvenation will restore function, improve appearance, and revive your confidence and satisfaction.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments Available to You
There are several vaginal rejuvenation treatment options to explore, each offering different benefits. You may want to consider:
While it’s important to understand that there is no “normal” when it comes to the vagina—your anatomy is unique—you may have issues with your labia, the external, fleshy folds that protect your genitals.
Whether you experience discomfort when crossing your legs or during intercourse, or you simply don’t like the appearance of your labia (or both), a labiaplasty can help. This surgical procedure involves alterations to the labia minora and majora in order to create a size and shape you’re more comfortable with. This procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia, and most women return to an active lifestyle within 2-4 weeks, although it may be 6-8 weeks before you can resume sexual activity.
This non-invasive procedure also helps to restore function, improving tightness, elasticity, and hydration in order to treat issues like incontinence and unsatisfying or painful intercourse. Using an advanced CO2 laser, the inner and outer tissues of the vagina are exposed to uniform waves of laser energy, stimulating collagen production to regenerate tissue and restore lost volume. No anesthesia is required, there’s no downtime, and many women see immediate improvement, with significant improvements in as little as three sessions.
Sweet Spot Shot
If you are a person who is able to climax during sexual activity and are seeking more explosive orgasms, a Sweet Spot Shot treatment could be the solution. This minimally-invasive procedure involves taking your own blood and injecting it in key vaginal areas to naturally stimulate healthy tissue growth that can increase sensation, facilitating more pleasurable orgasms.
It’s important to remember that you’re not the only woman experiencing physical changes after childbirth, during menopause, or simply due to aging or hormonal changes. You don’t have to suffer discomfort or self-consciousness. With the right vaginal rejuvenation treatment, you can resume the activities you enjoy and love your body again.
