Three Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Myths Debunked

We are happy to see that vaginal rejuvenation is becoming an increasingly familiar and talked about topic, with more and more women discussing the procedure with their doctor. However, there are still many women who are too embarrassed to bring up the topic of vaginal rejuvenation, often holding on to common misconceptions about the procedure. It is important to debunk these myths so that all women - and the men in their lives - will understand the serious issue of vaginal laxity and the dramatic improvements that can be achieved through a noninvasive procedure.

Myth #1

Women ultimately choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation so they will be more appealing and attractive to men.

  • Truth Women choose vaginal rejuvenation to put an end to physical symptoms. The idea that women only turn to vaginal rejuvenation as a way of pleasing the men in their life is actually common. Skeptics believe that society’s unrealistic ideals are pressuring women into changing their bodies. The reality is that vaginal muscle laxity causes both pain and mental anguish. Sex is uncomfortable, tampons no longer stay in place, and a loss in muscle elasticity can mean urine leakage when laughing or coughing. Women who choose vaginal rejuvenation are investing in themselves, improving their quality of life.

Myth #2

Urinary incontinence commonly occurs as we age; the only way to deal with this problem is through pads, pills, and in extreme cases, surgery.

  • Truth Women need to know that while developing urinary incontinence is normal, but they can put an end to the problem through a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation. Surgery and pills, while traditional treatments for urinary incontinence, are not necessarily the most effective techniques. Pads are not lifestyle-friendly and do nothing to improve the condition, which can continue to get worse over time. Noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation will increase the body’s production of collagen, tightening muscles to significantly reduce urinary incontinence.

Myth #3

Vaginal rejuvenation is painful and requires a long, challenging recovery period.

  • Truth Noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation is painless, takes less than an hour in our office, and needs no downtime. The procedure is performed using Viveve, which gently warms the deep tissues of the vaginal walls, encouraging collagen production. With only one session, vaginal muscles will see a dramatic improvement in tone and elasticity, eliminating pain and improving urinary incontinence. Women are back to their usual routine right away, although sex will need to be postponed for 48 hours.
