Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Worth It?
As much as we know that our body will change over time, most of us are unprepared for the various symptoms age and life events may bring. For women, changes to their most intimate body parts are inevitable. Just as the skin loses elasticity and firmness, so do the vaginal canal and external genitalia. These changes occur when the skin and lining of the vagina lose structural support from healthy, regenerative collagen and elastin. After age 20, the body simply does not produce as much of these vital chemicals as it uses. Childbirth and menopause are pivotal life events that also affect the vaginal area. As a result, women may face a plethora of unpleasant symptoms. Vaginal rejuvenation addresses them all. In our Houston office, we perform vaginal rejuvenation using CO2RE Intima. Here, we discuss why it’s definitely worth it.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
As much as technology has improved in recent years, many women still think that vaginal rejuvenation is a surgical process that either tightens the vaginal canal or reshapes the external genitalia. The CO2RE Intima device addresses vaginal laxity and its symptoms using CO2 laser energy. The CO2 laser is proven to remodel vaginal and genital tissue by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. The laser treats both deep and superficial layers of tissue, achieving outstanding results. The CO2RE Intima procedure takes only a few minutes, but it reaches the ideal temperature threshold to stimulate contraction, coagulation, denaturalization, and the subsequent remodeling of collagen in and outside of the vagina.
The remodeling that occurs after laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment leads to improved muscle tone, healthier mucosal surfaces, and a stronger vaginal epithelium. The body’s natural mucus secretion improves, relieving symptoms like vaginal dryness and discomfort. Improved muscle tone means a reduction in stress urinary incontinence. The combination of improvements in the vaginal canal and lining can also significantly improve sexual intimacy and pleasure.
Is non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation worth it? We’d say so! To learn more about our CO2RE Intima device and how it can help you feel like yourself again, schedule a visit to our Houston gynecology and aesthetics office.
