Our body is all about balance. Balance in hormones contributes to balance in our overall health. Over time, women experience changes in vaginal tissues due to changes in hormones, menopause, or childbirth. Low estrogen levels, for example, have been recognized to decrease vaginal lubrication, increase the risk of urinary tract infections due to a thinning of the urethra, cause irregular or absent menses, and affect mood. Women also experience an imbalance in estrogen levels due to things like rigorous exercise, extreme stress, or depression.
The changes and imbalance of female hormones contribute to changes in the appearance, feel, and function of vaginal tissues externally and internally.
Radiofrequency (RF) is a type of energy, that is measured in wavelengths. All types of energy from soundwaves of a speaker, to sunlight, to wi-fi, to highly radioactive gamma rays are classified by frequency on the “electromagnetic spectrum.” The RF energy used in this procedure is on the the low end of the RF range.
Safe? Absolutely! Make sure to do your research. You want to select a board-certified plastic surgeon.
RF energy is used to heat the external and internal tissue of the vaginal canal with a hand-held wand. As the tissues heats, production of collagen and elastin is stimulated. Collagen is a natural structure found in our skin that helps skin look young. Elastin works with collagen to keep it firm and tight. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, cell turnover happens, helping skin become firmer and look more youthful.
This treatment is painless and only takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
Patients report improved exterior appearance of vaginal structures, also improved overall vaginal health.
Downtime After Vaginal Rejuvenation
Due to the noninvasive nature of this treatment, there is no downtime associated. Some patients notice an immediate change but not always. The customized treatment plan will consist of a series of treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. It takes time to remodel tissue collagen and elastin, so it may take multiple sessions to achieve final results. The response and longevity of results vary for each patient variables, lifestyle and hormones.
