Childbirth and aging can cause the vaginal muscles to stretch or weaken, leading to vaginal laxity. There are several at-home exercises you can perform to try and tighten the muscles yourself. If those don’t restore your strength, you may choose to use the assistance of medical vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
A dedicated Kegel exercise regimen improves vaginal laxity for many women. You can also try doing weighted Kegels and other pelvic floor exercises to strengthen the surrounding musculature.
If your muscles don’t improve on their own or with at-home treatments, you may decide to seek medical help. Two popular medical interventions for vaginal looseness include vaginoplasty surgery and ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation.
Vaginoplasty is the surgical tightening of the vaginal canal. A surgeon removes excess skin and pulls the separated muscles back together with strong sutures.
ThermiVa is a noninvasive treatment that uses radiofrequency to tighten the labia and vaginal canal. Controlled radiofrequency heats the vaginal walls. The heat stimulates tissue remodeling and collagen growth, which causes a tightening effect.
During the 30 minute procedure, Dr. Ku inserts a thin handpiece into the vaginal canal and maneuvers it to send temperature-controlled radiofrequency into the tissues in segments. While you relax on the exam table, you should experience little to no discomfort during the treatment.
Dr. Ku recommends three treatments over the course of three months for the best results. You should have your final results three months after the last treatment. Dr. Ku advises you to have maintenance treatments once per year after your initial treatment to maintain your results.
ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation is safe and painless. It’s a noninvasive alternative to surgery that doesn’t require downtime or extensive recovery.
Although the primary purpose of ThermiVa is to tighten the skin, some patients report improved lubrication, increased sexual sensations, and decreased urinary incontinence as bonus side effects.
