Vaginal Revitalization Q&A
What is vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization describes services that enhance the appearance of your vagina and improve its function.
Due to childbirth or the natural effects of aging, your vaginal tissues can become loose. You may also notice that your labial tissues stretch out past the vaginal opening. Many women also experience increased vaginal dryness, loss of lubrication, and pain during sex as they get older.
These issues can become more noticeable during the transition to menopause, the time when menstrual periods stop for good. Weakened pelvic muscles can also lead to urinary incontinence, a condition that causes unexpected leaks of urine, especially when you laugh or sneeze.
If you’re uncomfortable or embarrassed by these intimate issues, you may be a candidate for the vaginal revitalization services available at the office of Jon T. Ricks, MD PA.
What vaginal revitalization services are available?
Dr. Ricks has extensive experience using nonsurgical and surgical treatments to restore your intimate wellness.
Viveve radiofrequency restoration
Viveve is a nonsurgical vaginal tightening and restoration technology that uses cryogen-cooled, monopolar and radiofrequency energy to improve vaginal health. The energy gently heats deep vaginal tissues to stimulate renewed collagen production to tighten lax tissues and improve natural lubrication.
Surgical vaginal revitalization
Surgical vaginal revitalization targets the loose tissues and muscles inside the vaginal canal. Surgery can also repair weak spots in the pelvic floor muscles to treat urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of enlarged labia minora and labia majora, the tissue folds of the vagina.
When should I consider vaginal revitalization?
There are a variety of reasons you might consider vaginal revitalization. Dr. Ricks offers comprehensive exams to evaluate the health of your vaginal tissues and can discuss your expectations for surgery.
He may recommend Viveve treatments if you experience urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and pain during sex.
You may be a candidate for surgical vaginal revitalization to address:
- Vaginal pain
- Sexual dysfunction
- Chronic urinary incontinence
- Weak spots in pelvic floor muscles (cystocele, rectocele)
Surgical restoration may also be an option for you if you’re embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of loose or enlarged vaginal tissues. For instance, if you can’t wear tight pains because of the noticeable bulge of tissue, surgery can help. Dr. Ricks can trim away excess tissue to improve the aesthetic appearance of your vagina.
