The aging process can take a toll on the vagina, leaving many women feeling less confident than they did in their younger years. Fortunately, there are many different strategies that
What Happens To The Vagina With Age?
Several factors contribute to vaginal changes as you age. For one, the hormonal changes that occur with menopause cause the vagina to look and function differently than it did when you were younger. Estrogen levels drop with menopause, and estrogen is essential to maintaining moisture and plumpness in the vaginal tissues. This makes vaginal dryness a prevalent symptom of menopause.
Lost elasticity in the vaginal tissues is common after menopause. This is in part due to hormonal changes. But, it’s also caused by aging in general. Just like the skin on the face, the labia and vaginal tissues become looser and sag with age because the body naturally produces less collagen and elastin.
How To Rejuvenate The Vagina
At the Visionary Centre for Women, Dr. Hayes performs a variety of advanced treatments to restore a youthful look and feel of the vagina. These treatments include:
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is also often called vaginoplasty, and it’s a procedure designed to restore the strength and tightness of the vagina. By surgically tightening the vaginal tissues, vaginoplasty enhances sexual pleasure while giving the vagina a more youthful look.
THERMIva® is a non-surgical alternative to vaginoplasty for vaginal rejuvenation. This method of tightening the vaginal tissues works by using radiofrequency energy to stimulate the natural collagen production process within the vaginal tissues. The result is greater tightness and strength of the vaginal tissues, as well as a rejuvenated appearance of the vagina.
The O-Shot® is a revolutionary treatment that utilizes PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to activate stem cells within the vaginal tissues. This triggers the body’s natural repair process, leading to the rejuvenation of the vaginal tissues. The result is restored vaginal and clitoral function for more powerful orgasms.
The aging process can lead to large, deflated, stretched, and wrinkled outer labia lips. Majoraplasty reverses these age-related changes by lifting the outer lips, giving the vagina a youthful appearance. This procedure can be thought of as a facelift for your outer labia lips.
