You may be wondering about the benefits of feminine rejuvenation if, like most women, you’ve experienced changes in the appearance and structure of your vagina over time. While vaginal changes are a common result of childbirth, hormonal changes, and aging, living with these changes can result in low self-confidence, less sexual satisfaction, and embarrassing urinary leaking or incontinence.
While many women can benefit from feminine rejuvenation, everyone isn’t a good candidate for these types of procedures. You can get the best evaluation of your eligibility and potential outcomes by working with an experienced feminine rejuvenation specialist.
Winnie King, MD, is a board-certified physician who provides several types of feminine rejuvenation treatments in her private practice in Shenandoah and Houston, Texas. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. King designs a treatment plan that’s appropriate for your condition and goals. With experience in state-of-the-art technologies and cutting-edge, noninvasive treatments, Dr. King ensures that you achieve the best possible results.
Read on to find out what’s involved in feminine rejuvenation and whether you may be a candidate for these types of services.
What feminine rejuvenation involves
Feminine rejuvenation, or vaginal revitalization, procedures include treatments that tighten, reshape, and reduce genital tissue to restore your vaginal area to wellness. The results can include a more youthful vaginal appearance, firmer tone, and restoration of normal vaginal function. Women who undergo vaginal rejuvenation report positive results that include improvement of sexual intercourse sensation, vaginal dryness, and bladder control.
What qualifies you as a candidate for feminine rejuvenation
Your interest in exploring feminine rejuvenation to change cosmetic or functional concerns indicates that you likely have an issue or condition that can benefit from treatment. After a thorough medical examination and consultation, Dr. King determines whether you are a good candidate for feminine rejuvenation.
Women who live a healthy and active lifestyle are likely to have better outcomes, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It’s also important that you are realistic about the results, potential risks, and the time frame in which you’ll notice changes.
Types of conditions treated
Nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation is appropriate for correcting concerns such as vaginal laxity (loss of vaginal tightness), vaginal dryness, urinary stress incontinence, and reduced sensation during sexual intercourse. If you want to change the appearance of your vagina by removing excess skin, reconstructing the vaginal wall, or reducing the labia, you will require a surgical procedure.
If your goals involve correcting the results of childbirth, aging, and hormonal changes, you may be a candidate for one of the nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation options that Dr. King administers in the privacy and comfort of her office:
- Ultra Femme 360™
When pelvic floor muscles become lax from childbearing or menopause, the muscles lose their ability to support pelvic organs and control your bladder. The result can cause urinary stress incontinence, a condition that affects 30-50% of childbearing women by age 40.
Ultra Femme 360 delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to vaginal tissue to firm and tighten weakened pelvic muscles. The process involves inserting a 360° tip inside the vaginal canal for a comfortable, controlled transfer of controlled heat. The heat increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production to tighten muscles in the treated area.
- BTL EmsellaTM
Depending on your condition, you may benefit from treating urinary stress incontinence with the BTL Emsella chair. BTL Emsella delivers thousands of contractions per second to your pelvic floor. The stimulation encourages improved bladder control by restoring control over the weakened pelvic muscles.
If you’re seeking to increase vaginal lubrication and improve sexual experience, you may be a candidate for the O-Shot. This treatment uses platelets derived from your own blood to stimulate tissue growth.
The platelets you receive are drawn from your blood sample and isolated in a centrifuge. Dr. King injects the isolated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) directly into your vagina tissue. The growth factors in the PRP attract blood flow and stem cells to the treated area, which helps your body restore itself naturally.
