Having children vaginally and aging are the most common causes of reduced vaginal tightness. Signs of vaginal laxity include decreased sexual satisfaction and loss of sensation during intercourse. Unfortunately, vaginal looseness is an under reported condition that can negatively impact a woman’s sexuality and body image. Many women are hesitant to ask their doctor about it because they are embarrassed or think there is nothing that can be done for improving vaginal looseness.
How is vaginal laxity traditionally treated?
Traditionally, vaginal laxity was only treated by performing a vaginoplasty, which is a surgical procedure for tightening the vagina. A surgeon will make an incision to bring separated and loosened muscles closer together. In addition, the excess mucosa skin at the back of the vagina is removed.1
Although women can have a surgical vaginoplasty performed under local anesthesia, most want general anesthesia to avoid feeling the discomfort of pulling and tugging on vaginal muscles. Blood tests and a bowel prep are done prior to surgery. Complications of a surgical vaginoplasty are rare, usually involving infection, pain and bleeding. Women undergoing surgery to tighten their vagina can expect seven to 14 days of downtime. Intercourse and tampon use are prohibited for up to eight weeks.2
Nonsurgical vaginal tightening alternatives
Instead of enduring the pain, bleeding and downtime of vaginal surgery, women are discovering the benefits of noninvasive radio-frequency heat to tighten lax vaginal muscles.
The revolutionary Geneveve™ treatment is specifically designed to improve vaginal laxity by heating vaginal tissue using gentle RF heat. During heating of vaginal tissues, Geneveve™ provides a cooling action to protect delicate tissue surfaces so women do not have to endure discomfort. In addition, there is no anesthesia or cutting involved. After a 30 minute, in-office session, you can return to your normal daily activities.3
Heating of vaginal tissues using gentle, effective radio-frequency energy promotes production of new collagen to help replenish and strengthen loose vaginal tissues.
These are some of the benefits women can enjoy after undergoing a Geneveve™ sessions in our office:
- Significantly improved control of urination (overactive bladder, stress incontinence, urge incontinence)
- Reduced vaginal dryness
- Heightened sexual sensation for both themselves and their partner
Additionally, many women continue loving the results of Geneveve for up to 12 months before “touch-up” sessions may be needed.
Who are good candidates for Geneveve™?
Women in good health who are struggling with vaginal laxity due to childbirth, dramatic weight loss or aging would be good candidates for nonsurgical vaginal tightening treatment. Prior to having a treatment, your doctor will meet with you to discuss your medical history and what you expect to experience with Geneveve™. Woman with pacemakers or defibrillators/automatic implantable cardioverters may not be good candidates for this type of treatment.4
