It is not a secret that pregnancy and childbirth cause tremendous changes to a woman’s body. From the great hormonal fluctuations that affect the feel of the vaginal skin and lubrication to the stretching of your muscles and connective tissue, you may feel as though your will never reclaim your vaginal health after childbirth. It is common to experience looseness of the vagina, dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and even incontinence after you have been pregnant and given birth. And, even women who have avoided stretching of the vagina by giving birth through C-section experience some of these undesirable vaginal changes due to the hormonal changes of pregnancy and natural processes of aging.
Fortunately, there is a non-surgical solution that can restore your vaginal health after childbirth. In our practice, we offer only the most technologically-advanced treatments that have been proven to be effective, and we are excited to be able to provide RejuVAnate to our patients who are unhappy with the feel and appearance of their vaginas after childbirth. RejuVAnate is a tissue-revitalizing laser with a specially-designed applicator that can improve your life by restoring your vagina to its more youthful state.
How Does Childbirth Affect Your Vagina?
If you’ve experienced vaginal childbirth, you know the pressure that is put on this part of your body is extreme. When the baby is pushed through the birth canal, the muscles, fascia, ligaments, and skin are all stretched and weakened. Over time and with subsequent deliveries, the weakened muscle tone can get progressively worse and cause looseness, decreased sensation and pleasure (for both you and your partner) during intercourse, and an unsightly, “gaping” appearance that may make you feel self-conscious and unattractive. Unfortunately, these changes that happen to the vagina after childbirth can even contribute to incontinence and a decreased libido.
How Can RejuVAnate Help Restore Your Vaginal Health After Childbirth?
RejuVAnate is a CO2 laser that can be applied to the vaginal canal. During the treatment, energy from the laser gently heats the targeted tissue, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production mechanism. Collagen is a protein that is produced in abundance in the body, but your natural collagen production mechanisms slow down as you age. It is this decreased collagen production combined with the damage caused during childbirth that leaves many women feeling “loose” and unattractive.
When your RejuVAnate treatment stimulates your body to produce more collagen, the skin can become more firm and plump and you will experience a tightening of the vagina. The tissues of the vaginal canal will thicken, improving natural lubrication and sensation (for both you and your partner) during intercourse. Over time, as your body continues to produce more collagen, you will continue to experience improvements in your vaginal health.
