Growing older is a natural process. But with it comes issues like sagging skin and muscles. Aging takes a heavy toll on women’s health, as do childbearing, menopause, hormone imbalances, weight fluctuations, hereditary factors, and the stresses of today’s modern lifestyle. These factors cause a number of health issues, including a rarely discussed problem: vaginal looseness.
The skin and muscles of the vagina lose their elasticity over time. This is due to two factors. First, the creation of collagen, a protein responsible for maintaining the structure of these tissues, declines. Second, enzymes responsible for the breakdown of collagen become more active.
The resulting vaginal laxity manifests in the form of issues that are embarrassing to the point where many women do not feel comfortable discussing or seeking a remedy for them. These include a lack of bladder control while sneezing, coughing, or laughing; a need to urinate under sudden or unexpected circumstances; and dryness, looseness, and decreased sensation in the vagina.
The solution to these problems lies in vaginal rejuvenation. This reduces the excess skin that causes discomfort during daily activities. In addition, it improves the aesthetics of the genital area.
In the past, the only option for vaginal rejuvenation came in the form of an invasive surgical procedure. Labiaplasty, clitoral-hood reduction, monsplasty, and vaginoplasty were the surgeries included in vaginal rejuvenation.
Though effective, these procedures were sometimes painful and involved necessary downtime for recovery. Because of this, many women avoided these procedures.
Now, there is a non-invasive technique available that numerous women find preferable to surgery. This technique is known as Geneveve. Geneveve is a groundbreaking discovery in the field of vaginal rejuvenation. It is simple and quick and has helped many women enjoy the benefits of vaginal tightening.
During a Geneveve treatment, a specialist holds a wand-like device to the vaginal tissues. Through this device, small pulses of cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) energy are delivered to the tissues.
The energy penetrates into the vaginal walls and selectively warms up the underlying tissues while cooling the upper layers. Through this process, it stimulates the creation of collagen in the tissues, restoring firmness to the vaginal walls.
Patients experience alternating warm and cool sensations while the process is being conducted. The treatment is practically painless, and the discomfort caused is so negligible that not even topical numbing creams are required.
The Geneveve treatment is complete in a few minutes, after which the patient can continue with most of their day-to-day activities. The specialist will offer post-treatment care directions that will help to encourage quality results.
The results of the treatment manifest in a few weeks. The boost in the natural collagen production of the vaginal tissues ensures that the results are consistent and long lasting.
