Vaginal rejuvenation available in Portland, OR
Women’s bodies go through many changes throughout their lives. Childbearing, hormonal changes, and aging can not only alter a woman’s core but also the intimate areas. These changes can impact the quality of life. Previously these changes were not discussed let alone addressed. Now, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive in Portland, OR offer treatments for vaginal rejuvenation.
Causes of vaginal laxity
Carrying a baby through pregnancy and childbirth is beautiful, but it can cause trauma to the body. Pregnancy and delivery cause trauma and stretching resulting in loss of vaginal tightness. The stretching of tissues and separation of the muscles leads to a lack of tone in the vagina. This lack of tone is even more likely in women who have had more than one child, a large baby, or a forceps delivery.
As a frequently under reported condition, women who experience vaginal laxity may be negatively impacted by the following:
- Loss of sensation during intercourse
- Decreased sexual satisfaction
- Poor body image
Vaginal rejuvenation is available.
Vaginal exercises such as Kegel exercises or pelvic floor training are often recommended to tighten the vaginal muscles, but there is no evidence as to their effectiveness for tightening. Vaginoplasty has a high rate for patient satisfaction. Vagina surgery and non-surgical methods such as laser or radiofrequency treatments give patients options to improve their quality of life. The cost of vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation treatments are offset by the enhanced physical and mental well-being after the procedure.
The recommended procedure depends upon the severity of vaginal laxity. A surgical vaginoplasty involves the tightening of the vaginal muscles. Non-invasive vaginal tightening heats the tissues through radiofrequency or laser energy. This induces collagen tightening which strengthens the muscles and tightens tissue. At Thrive, we utilize the Ultra Femme 360 by BTL Aesthetics. This innovative radiofrequency technology heats the vaginal area to improve blood flood and stimulate collagen in a non-invasive, safe, pain-free manner.
