It’s perfectly natural for a woman to experience unwanted alterations to her female anatomy during the childbearing years. These can also occur due to the hormonal changes related to menopause or ageing. These life events can impact her quality of life, especially if they result in vaginal laxity, stress urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and decreased sensation during sexual intercourse.
Estimates indicate that around 40 percent of women in Australia suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction. It’s no wonder that vaginal rejuvenation is the fastest growing segment of the medical aesthetics market.
Regardless of the reason for seeking vaginal rejuvenation treatments, whether purely cosmetic or medical, the majority of women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation to boost their self-confidence, appearance and feelings of femininity.
Vaginal rejuvenation treatments
What is vaginal rejuvenation exactly? It refers to surgical and non-surgical procedures that repair and restore a woman’s intimate parts, including the vagina, labia minora and majora, plus the clitoris and urinary tract. Vaginal rejuvenation is a process that can revitalise these areas using surgical techniques or by minimally-invasive methods such as radiofrequency or laser energy devices.
Under the “surgical” umbrella, options include labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, perineal scar revision, vulvar fat grafting and clitoral hood reduction. These treatments are normally performed by a specially trained surgeon and the objective is to correct the anatomical and functional abnormalities that can result from childbirth, traumatic events or for congenital reasons.
Vaginal rejuvenation without surgery
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery is no longer the only option women have for correcting their intimate feminine concerns. Fortunately, over the last several decades the medical aesthetics industry has witnessed a number of minimally-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatments come on the market.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is typically achieved by using heat-emitting sources such as laser or radiofrequency. These devices use therapeutic heating to trigger a series of healing responses in the vagina and surrounding areas that stimulate collagen, elastin and the formation of healthy new tissue from the inside-out.
Women who have experienced unwanted changes, such as feeling of ‘looseness’ due to childbirth, dry vagina due to menopause or urinary incontinence post-partum or from the ageing process, can achieve the following benefits:
- More enjoyment and satisfaction from sexual intercourse – non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation can improve a woman’s vaginal and clitoral sensitivity, natural lubrication and the ability to achieve orgasm.
- Improved self–confidence and body image – correcting laxity issues in the vagina and improving the appearance of the labia minora can help a woman feel more attractive, better about herself and how she looks ‘down there.’
- Easing of stress urinary incontinence symptoms – involuntary loss of urine from the urethra can be corrected non-surgically and with minimal downtime.
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery vs. minimally-invasive procedures
With both options readily available, why would a woman choose the non-surgical approach? There are several reasons why the minimally-invasive choice may be preferable to surgery. For one thing, this type of vaginal rejuvenation treatment is non-invasive, non-ablative and does not require anaesthesia or visit to the hospital.
There’s also minimal pain, discomfort and downtime. Therefore if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms listed below, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help improve your quality and enjoyment of life:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal skin laxity
- Labial skin laxity
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain during intercourse
- Decreased lubrication
- Reduction of sensitivity
Note: keep in mind that more serious conditions and complications may require vaginal rejuvenation surgery by a qualified medical professional. These include cancer patients who have experienced damage to their genitalia or urinary system due to surgery or radiation treatment. Also vaginal wall prolapse, physical trauma or congenital problems typically require surgery in order to repair the damage.
TempSure™ Vitalia radio frequency non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation
One device in particular stands out when it comes to reversing and correcting the biggest intimate concerns women have. It’s called the TempSure™ Vitalia, and it uses proven monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology to repair both internal and external vaginal structures, including: tightening the vaginal walls, reducing the size and shape of the labia, plus correcting functional issues related to stress urinary incontinence and sexual satisfaction.
How is Tempsure™ Vitalia performed?
During treatment, a small probe is inserted into the vagina to deliver therapeutic levels of radio frequency heat to vaginal walls and surrounding tissue. Externally, a second treatment wand is applied around the vulva to gently heat up the area.
This type of medical heating of the vaginal tissue (and labia if the woman chooses this option) results in both short and long-term vaginal tightening, improvement in labia tone and appearance, pain reduction, lubrication and overall youthful appearance and robust vaginal health.
What sets TempSure™ Vitalia apart from other devices?
In a word: precision. The carefully calibrated temperature sensors utilised during treatment ensure safe, effective and consistent results during each session. Additionally, the device delivers controlled heating for smaller, hard-to-reach areas to boost circulation and promote healing.
What to expect during and after the procedure
The minimally-invasive procedure normally takes between 20-45 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Unlike vaginal rejuvenation surgery, there’s no downtime post treatment and patients can resume normal activities immediately. To achieve the best possible results, a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended. The results are cumulative and improvement continues after each session.
