We tend to take our youth for granted until it starts to disappear. Suddenly, you see tiny little lines around your eyes and mouth that weren’t there yesterday, muscle tone decreases, and your skin seems thinner.
The same effects you see on your face happen to your vaginal tissue, as well.
Vaginal laxity may catch you off guard, though, because it’s not a topic women talk about often. It’s more common than you may realize, but it’s often ignored and left untreated.
At Gago Wellness in Brighton, Michigan, our team of master aestheticians is dedicated to shedding light on this common women’s condition and the innovative, noninvasive treatment that can restore vaginal health — Votiva®.
Signs you may have vaginal laxity
When the tissues in and around your vagina become loose, you have vaginal laxity. Here are a few telltale signs:
- Sexual intercourse feels different, less sensation
- You can’t keep a tampon in place
- Loss of sensation and pleasure during sex
- Wrinkled labia
- Drooping skin
- Extra labia skin that bulges under clothing
Vagnial laxity affects internal and external skin.
What causes vaginal laxity?
Three main factors cause vaginal laxity: childbirth, hormones, and age.
Vaginal childbirth does a number on the tissues in your birth canal. If you’ve had several vaginal deliveries or have delivered large babies, the experience likely stretched your vaginal tissues and damaged them beyond their ability to self-heal.
As women, we’re used to fluctuating hormones, but when menopause hits, it’s a whole new ball game. In addition to the classic symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings, we also undergo vaginal changes. Decreased estrogen leads to vaginal atrophy, including thinning vaginal walls, dryness, pain and discomfort, urinary incontinence, and more frequent UTIs.
Your facial skin begins to wrinkle and sag with age because you lose essential structural proteins — collagen and elastin. These elements are responsible for keeping your skin tight and plump, and once they’re gone, your skin thins, wrinkles, and sags.
The same is true down there. Your vaginal tissues become weak and slack. Sex can be uncomfortable because the skin pulls and tugs and won’t snap back with the elasticity it once had.
Help for vaginal laxity
The good news is that we can improve your weak and aging vaginal tissues and help you regain your sexual health.
We trust Votiva to shore up your vaginal tissues. This nonablative radiofrequency device is noninvasive and painless. It uses two innovative technologies that restore internal vaginal tissues and external labial tissues for a complete vulva and vaginal boost.
The device gently heats up the cells deep within your vaginal skin, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin. The immediate benefits include:
- Thicker tissues
- Tightened tissues
- Decreased pain
- Heightened sensation
- Increased blood flow
- Improved urinary incontinence
After just one session, you’ll notice an improvement, but your overall treatment may include 2-3 sessions about a month apart. As your body responds to the treatment, your results continually improve.
There’s no need to schedule any downtime after your Votiva session. You can go back to work, school, or home, and no one will know your business unless you tell them.
