Vaginal-rejuvenation procedures are improving the lives of many women.
The decision to have a cosmetic gynecological procedure done isn’t something a lot of women feel comfortable discussing.
“Women don’t talk about it”
“There’s a secrecy about intimate parts”
Vaginal rejuvenation can mean different things, depending on what women are looking for and what different physicians offer.
In the past, similar procedures were done in the operating room. Women had to be put under anaesthesia and then the vaginal canal would be tightened up with stitches or sutures. It was a painful and risky procedure.
Nowadays, non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedures are done using laser-therapy.
Before you jump to any conclusions, know all the facts. Here, we’ve smashed 4 common myths heard about laser vaginal treatment procedures.
Myths About Vaginal Rejuvenation
1) Myth: It’s All for Her Partner’s Pleasure
Truth: “It’s about the patient’s own health and sexual pleasure”.
Typically, patients of age 50 and up use a laser-therapy vaginal rejuvenation as a way to fix the pain, dryness and elasticity issues that are associated with menopause and are a part of a woman’s natural aging process. The procedure enhances a woman’s vaginal muscle tone and increase sensitivity and sexual satisfaction.
Sexual satisfaction isn’t the only reason why women opt for vaginal rejuvenation procedures. Laser therapy-based procedure is designed for women with incontinence issues. In this procedure, the vaginal canal is tightened and shrunk in order to provide greater support to the bladder.
2) Myth: It’s Going to Hurt A lot
Truth: It’s pain-free.
Thanks to the use of laser therapy, a vaginal rejuvenation procedure is virtually pain-free. No numbing or anaesthetic medicine is required.
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are done in the presence of a doctor and two nurses. A very tiny speculum is then inserted into the vagina, which is followed by the light of the laser. Women may feel some heat when the laser is close to the opening of the vagina, but patients say that the discomfort is manageable.
3) Myth: Recovery Is Going to Be Difficult
Truth: The recovery is almost as simple as the procedure.
In order for the tissue to heal, women must abstain from intercourse for two weeks and shouldn’t wear tampons or avoid any heavy lifting for a month. Doctors sometimes prescribe a topical estrogen cream to help stimulate the body’s natural collagen to grow.
Since vaginal rejuvenation procedures are finished in less than half an hour, many women can even get the vaginal rejuvenation procedure done during their lunch breaks at work.
4) Myth: It’s Not Necessary
Truth: While vaginal rejuvenation isn’t a life-saving procedure, it can greatly improve the quality of life.
Women who have been experiencing severe bladder leaks ever since they had an extremely difficult delivery undergo laser therapy procedure, which shrinks and tightens vaginal tissue so that it can better support the bladder.
