What is vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization is a non-invasive treatment that helps restore the integrity of vaginal tissue affected by changes in hormones, childbirth, and the aging process. As you get older or following childbirth, you may find your vaginal tissue is inflamed and thin. This vaginal atrophy can also cause dryness, irritation, and itching.
As a result, sexual intercourse is uncomfortable and sometimes painful. You may experience urinary incontinence because of lax tissue and experience general discomfort in the vaginal region.
What treatments are used for vaginal revitalization?
Suffolk Pelvic Medicine offers bipolar radiofrequency technology for vaginal revitalization. This state-of-the-art European technology is brand new to the United States and revitalizes your vaginal tissue at a deeper level than laser treatments. This means you get more resilient and strong tissue after treatment and improved healing.
What is it like to have a vaginal revitalization treatment?
The treatments are non-invasive and pain-free. Your rest on an exam table with your feet in stirrups, much like you do for a pelvic exam. Your technician uses a sterile probe to administer the radiofrequency treatment to the inner and outer tissue of the vaginal region.
The radiofrequency emits slight warmth, and the probe vibrates slightly, but most women find the procedure quite comfortable.
You can go about all your daily activities following vaginal revitalization treatments. Your provider may ask you to refrain from sexual intercourse or tampon use for just a few days following treatment to allow optimal healing.
What are the benefits of vaginal revitalization?
You will experience improved sexual comfort and possibly pleasure as well, but these aren’t the only benefits of vaginal revitalization. The radiofrequency improves tissue resiliency and balances your vaginal pH resulting in:
- Fewer urinary tract infections
- Less urinary leakage
- Less urinary frequency and urgency
- Reduced general pelvic discomfort
Vaginal revitalization restores your confidence and comfort.
How many treatments will I need?
Dr. Hill creates a customized treatment plan based on your complaints and vaginal concerns. You’ll start to notice improvements in your vaginal tissue health and resilience after a single treatment, but it’s best to undergo a full course of recommended treatments for long-term healing.
Dr. Hill may recommend an annual maintenance treatment to help you maintain vaginal tissue health.
