Following are the common questions about Vaginal Tightening:
A. Vaginal looseness, in the simplest terms, is the feeling that your vagina feels more loose than it was before. Some of the common signs include:
Vaginal looseness, at times, may also be accompanied with:
A. A slight vaginal looseness is both common and normal with age. Just as our skin and other body organs lax a little with age, so does the vagina.
However, at times, some life events such as twin pregnancy, multiple childbirths or difficult deliveries may stress your vaginal walls a little too much and make it difficult for the vagina to come back to its original shape. This is what causes vaginal looseness.
A. No. Vagina is a naturally elastic organ that stretches and contracts when needed. Frequent sex or sex with different partners cannot cause a loosened vagina.
A. There is no standard size of how tight or loose a vagina should be. Vaginas come in all shapes and sizes. As long as it feels okay and healthy to you, you are good.
A. Vaginal Tightening treatment is an elective treatment usually opted for better personal hygiene and enhanced sexual life. We suggest you consider it if you feel any of the symptoms or discomfort related to a loosened vagina, such as reduced penetrative sensation, lesser sexual satisfaction, or frequent episodes of urinary leakage.
Statistically, it is more common in women between the age group of 20s and 30s or post a difficult childbirth.
A. No. Vaginal tightening gels and medications are merely topical treatments. At max, they only bring a temporary tingling sensation on application that might feel like a tightening effect to some. However, the same is not true. The effect doesn’t last and uncontrolled usage can rather cause a list of various vaginal complications including-
This is why they are best left avoided.
A. Both laser vaginal tightening and vaginoplasty are tightening procedures aimed at toning the lost vaginal laxity. However, which treatment is best for you depends directly on your individual vaginal laxity. Some of the key differences that might help you make an informed decision are:
A. Vaginal Tightening helps-
And when the treatment is done through LASER, it ensures that the procedure is bloodless, noninvasive, and includes no downtime or recovery period.
A. A gynecologist trained in obstetrics or cosmetic gynecology is the most ideal choice to perform vaginal tightening.
A. The doctor performing laser vaginal tightening should have at least one or more of the following qualifications:
A. Vaginal looseness has no statute lab or imaging tests. However, you would feel the looseness yourself because of the decreased sexual sensation/ dryness, or frequent urinary leakages as you laugh or run. Here, your doctor’s explained symptoms and a physical pelvic examination can help detect the exact treatment required and what you can expect as a probable result.
A. Laser Vaginal Tightening Procedure, as the name suggests, is done through laser. It is a quick 20-25 minutes procedure. Here the doctor first opens your vagina through a specialized speculum and then inserts a laser probe. Once the probe is inside your vaginal canal, laser heat is activated for around 10-15 minutes. This heat activates the collagen in the surrounding tissues, which in turn, helps in the growth of new cells. As a result, your vagina feels tighter and toned.
A. The number of vaginal tightening sessions required depends directly on your individual vaginal laxity. More the looseness, more the sessions. Typically, we prescribe 3-4 sessions at 15-20 days each.
A. Yes, laser vaginal treatments can also help remove vaginal warts. You can discuss the same with your gynecologist.
A. Yes. Laser vaginal tightening does not only help tighten the loosened walls of your vagina but also solves vaginal dryness and itching. Basically, laser vaginal tightening works on the deeper layers of the skin. The heat produced through the probe helps activate collagen in the surrounding tissues and thus, promotes new cell growth and better functioning. Thereby, helping you with both- natural lubrication and enhanced sensation. If your focus is more on lubrication and overall vaginal health, you could also consider laser vaginal rejuvenation or PRP treatment.
A. Yes, laser vaginal tightening does not only tighten your vaginal walls but also tones your pelvic muscles and increases their strength and control, thereby solving mild-moderate urinary leakage.
A. No. The laser used during laser vaginal tightening does not burn the vaginal skin. The heat generated during the procedure is extremely low and adjustable. Your doctor continues the treatment only after a patch test and all the temperature recordings are maintained for the next visit.
A. No. Laser Vaginal Tightening does not harm your fertility or reproductive abilities. It is completely safe. The laser probe is inserted only in the external vaginal canal whereas, your reproductive system that is, the uterus, fallopian tubes or the ovaries, lie much above it over the cervix. Since the laser never interacts with these organs, the procedure does not affect your ability to get pregnant at all.
A. Typically, you can safely undergo laser vaginal tightening after 2 months of your child delivery. However, the same may change case to case and person to person. Therefore, the matter is best discussed individually with your gynecologist.
A. The best time to schedule your laser vaginal tightening surgery is at least two days after your last menstrual cycle.
A. Laser vaginal tightening sessions start showing results right from the first session. However, the complete effect and changes may be experienced only after the completion of the last prescribed session.
A. The sooner, the better! The underlying principle is that the surgery does not reduce its effectiveness with time unless strained physically. Therefore, it is best you consult your doctor the earliest and schedule the surgery the soonest you can so you could live more stress-free and avoid all last-minute complications.
A. Yes, you can! Laser vaginal treatment can opt more than once.
A. We advise you to wait for at least 2 days before you resume your sexual life post-laser vaginal tightening. This is done to reduce the chances of infection and allow proper healing.
A. Immediately! Since laser vaginal tightening is a bladeless and non-invasive treatment, it does not require any recovery period. It is a short procedure of just 20-25 minutes, and you can go home or join work right after.
A. No, not really! The only precaution you need to take is that, do not engage in any sexual activity for the next two days. Then, you may resume as you like. Also, as usual, maintain good intimate hygiene and stay hydrated.
A. No. Laser vaginal tightening is not a permanent but, a long-term solution. Typically, it lasts for a minimum of 7-8 years. And as for permanence, no vaginal tightening treatment is a permanent treatment. Just as you age and all your other organs experience some natural changes/lose their tenacity, so will your vagina. This is only natural and rational. However, if you would like, you can take the same procedure again.
A. Yes, absolutely! There is no upper age limit or restriction to get a laser vaginal tightening. As long as your doctor finds you medically fit for the treatment, you can undergo the procedure.
