Though it is one of the most common health issues faced by women, vaginal laxity is far too often overlooked and left untreated. Vaginal Laxity is often a direct result of childbirth, certain medical conditions, and aging – all of which can affect the level of collagen production in the skin and the tissues of the vagina walls and lead to a feeling of slackness or looseness in the vagina. Unfortunately, women dealing with vaginal laxity may also suffer decreased libido, lack of sexual arousal, and a reduction in sexual satisfaction during intercourse.
Cause of Vaginal Laxity
Vaginal laxity occurs when the vaginal tissues stretch during vaginal deliveries or in relation to aging and lead to a significant loss of lubrication in the vaginal area as well as the inability to experience orgasm and a decrease in sensitivity during sexual intercourse. Other common causes include a high rate of sexual activity, vaginal trauma, genetic disorders, menopause, and multiple vaginal births.
Treating Vaginal Laxity
Fortunately, there are ways to treat vaginal laxity and improve your vaginal health in addition to regaining the confidence and pleasure you once enjoyed in being intimate with your partner. In fact, some of the most simple and effective treatments include the use of herbal creams and sprays or Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can also be of great benefit to women who also suffer from urinary incontinence in addition to vaginal laxity.
For some women suffering more severe cases of this unfortunate condition, their Urogynecologist may recommend surgery such as labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, hymenoplasty, or perineoplasty. With increasing improvements to technology and its use in women’s medicine, however, finding relief from vaginal laxity doesn’t necessarily mean having to take drastic measures like surgery. Vaginal rejuvenation using diVa® laser vaginal therapy has been proven for achieving dramatic success in vaginal tightening, and a growing number of Urogynecology experts have turned to this innovative method of treatment for providing their patients with safe, quick, and effective relief. Using dual-bandy hybrid fractional lasers, diVa® vaginal therapy reverses the effects of vaginal laxity by resurfacing the tissues of the vaginal walls and initiating the natural processes of the body to replace those tissues with stronger, tighter, and plumper tissues and increasing blood flow to the vagina, resulting in heightened sensitivity. Rather than resorting to surgery, laser treatments offer an ideal option for women in search of a safe, gentle, and effective solution that requires no downtime.
