The Causes and Treatment of Vaginal Laxity
The stages in a woman’s life bring about changes that affect our well-being and health. Our feminine and sexual health are areas that are especially affected by pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and aging. Vaginal laxity is the most common concern amongst women, and you may be surprised just how much the condition influences your well-being. Fortunately, there is a safe and effective non-surgical solution — Geneveve™ vaginal rejuvenation.
What is Vaginal Laxity?
Vaginal laxity is a term that is used to describe a loosening of the vaginal canal. It can happen for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Vaginal stretching during childbirth
- Natural aging
Essentially, the tissues in the vaginal canal change. With childbirth, this occurs when the vaginal canal is stretched beyond a threshold and are unable to fully return to a pre-childbirth state. Tears are also common during childbirth, and this may cause minor scarring and abnormal healing. The aging process also affects a woman’s vaginal canal. The tissues rely on collagen, just like your skin. As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen that what is lost. The thinning of tissue that results causes looseness in the vaginal canal.
How Vaginal Laxity Affects Your Quality of Life
You may be experiencing some embarrassing symptoms, yet not realize that the cause is vaginal laxity. Common signs of vaginal laxity are:
- Stress incontinence
- Inadequate natural lubrication (vaginal dryness)
- Pain during sex
- Less sensation and satisfaction during sex
Can Vaginal Laxity Be Treated?
Vaginal laxity can be treated both surgically and non-surgically. Surgical techniques remove excess tissue and tighten the tissues with sutures. The clitoral hood and labia can also be modified during the procedure. But not every woman wants or needs invasive surgery to correct vaginal laxity. The Geneveve™ system is a non-surgical treatment that is safe, effective and comfortable. You do not have the risk of scarring, and there is zero downtime.
