Four Questions to Ask at a Vaginal Rejuvenation Consultation

Featured Image

One big misconception about vaginal rejuvenation is that it’s mainly about your appearance. As experts in women’s health, we know this isn’t the only reason to move forward with this treatment. Patients who visit our spa can also address conditions such as vaginal laxity or dryness that can prevent them from enjoying sexual activity.

The goal of Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa is to help women live their lives to the fullest. If you are suffering from vaginal laxity, dryness, painful sex, or incontinence when you laugh or cough, our team can give you an assessment to see if you are a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation. Schedule a complete consultation today at our luxury med spa in Fleming Island, FL.

Why should I get vaginal rejuvenation?

As women go through different stages of life, such as childbirth and menopause, the vagina can experience a variety of changes. They include vaginal laxity, decreased sexual sensation, vaginal dryness, and urinary incontinence. At Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa, we offer a simple, in-office procedure called vaginal rejuvenation, where we encourage the production of collagen with a device that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy.

During your consultation, our staff will give you an examination to see if you could benefit from this treatment. Good candidates for vaginal rejuvenation suffer from a form of vaginal dysfunction but are looking for nonsurgical options. This procedure works by tightening your vaginal canal, increasing your natural vaginal moisture, and restoring your urinary control with little or no downtime.

During treatment, we use a simple wand applicator that emits radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen, while a built-in thermometer ensures we use safe temperatures that don’t harm the tissues. Additionally, the wand will release cryogen to further ensure that the surface tissue of the vagina remains cool and comfortable throughout the treatment. Vaginal rejuvenation is quickly gaining attention as a one-time treatment to address laxity issues and increase your quality of life.

How do I prepare for the procedure?

Refrain from having sexual intercourse 24 hours prior to the treatment. On the morning of your vaginal rejuvenation treatment, wash the vulvar area carefully at home as normal. If you have questions about the procedure before you begin, be sure to write them down so you don’t forget. You can drive yourself to and from the appointment, but if you think you need a partner or friend to accompany you, please feel free to make these arrangements.

After you sign the consent and patient evaluation forms, we can begin the process. The staff at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL, will lead you to one of our comfortable treatment rooms, where the procedure will take about 45 minutes. You may want to bring your cell phone, a magazine, or a good book to keep yourself busy during the procedure.

You will hear several different sounds, such as the device signaling pulses of energy on the treatment site. Patients may feel mild warmth as well as cooling sensations. While discomfort is unlikely, your healthcare professional will ask you to report any pain or other abnormal feelings at this time.

How do I recover at home?

After your treatment, be sure to ask any questions you may have before you leave our office. Our certified and trained professionals at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa are happy to address any concerns following your vaginal rejuvenation treatment, such as questions about resuming sexual activity or using tampons. Usually, we suggest that patients refrain from sex for at least one day following the treatment. If our staff recommends a follow-up appointment, we will coordinate a date and time with you.

We also ask that you do not douche your vagina to keep it clean. The practice of douching, or the cleansing of the inside of the vagina with water or other fluids, is not beneficial for women in general. Douching upsets the pH balance of the vagina and should be avoided in the future.

Most patients can resume their daily activities as normal immediately after the treatment. It is important to have a discussion with your provider to make sure there are no other activities that are off-limits after your procedure. If you experience pain, discomfort, or other worrying symptoms, please contact our spa right away so we can help.

When should I expect to see results?

As a result of this procedure, you should experience an improvement in the laxity of your vagina, better lubrication, more comfortable sex, and increased bladder retention. The real repair process occurs over a period of time as new collagen is produced and existing collagen is renewed. Most women will sense a tighter vaginal wall after 30 days, while the full effect is generally felt after 90 days. However, it can take up to six months to see sustained results.

There are many factors that can lead to sexual dysfunction, pelvic floor disorder, vaginal laxity, dryness, and stress urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, these issues can lead to decreased sexual health and confidence. At Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL, we hope to correct these problems by helping your produce and restore your own natural collagen through vaginal rejuvenation.
