What Treatments Can Tighten My Vagina?

What Treatments Can Tighten My Vagina?

It’s unavoidable that parts of your body change over time, through the natural process of aging as well as from experiences you’ve had throughout your life and the genetic tendencies passed on through your family. 

Your vagina and genital area change along with skin tone or loss of muscle mass. This can be hastened by pregnancy and childbirth, and it’s also common during the hormone imbalances that accompany menopause. Vaginal tissue loses tone and elasticity, sometimes affecting sexual response and urinary function. 

Vaginal rejuvenation is a wide collection of medical procedures that can reverse some of the changes you experience, primarily addressing function and sometimes cosmetics. 

When you’re dissatisfied with the effects of aging on your vagina, meet with our team at Southeast Urogyn to discuss your goals and the best procedures for your condition. 

Reasons for treatment

Every woman’s experience is uniquely their own, and this includes reasons why you may seek treatment for improvements to your vagina. 

Vaginal tissue ages in many of the same ways as skin elsewhere on your body, losing moisture, tightness, and the ability to bounce back. This can lead to surprisingly varied changes, including: 

These changes factor into things like self-consciousness about your body and its responses. In turn, this can cause changes to your psychological response to sex and arousal. 

What treatments can tighten my vagina? 

At Southeast Urogyn, we have several approaches to draw from, depending on your condition and your desired treatment goals. Generally, we choose conservative therapies first, moving to more complex treatments only when you’re not achieving satisfactory results. 

Hormone therapy

Many changes from menopause start with lower levels of estrogen in your body. A drop in hormone levels can change the tissue in and around your vagina, a condition sometimes called vaginal atrophy

Pessaries, topical estrogen creams, or vaginal rings can help. If you have other major symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, other forms of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be a better choice. 

Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation

Moving beyond hormone supplementation, a platelet-rich plasma-based treatment called the O-Shot® revives your vaginal tissue health through the power of your own platelets. Harvested, concentrated and reinjected, the O-Shot stimulates the revitalization of vaginal wall tissue. 

ThermiVa® accomplishes similar results using the warming power of radiofrequency energy. Penetrating vaginal walls to trigger a healing response in the collagen layer below the surface. MonaLisa Touch® uses the same warming principle, but uses a penetrating fractional CO2 laser system designed expressly for vaginal treatments.  

Surgical vaginal rejuvenation

Your vagina may not look like it once did, and you might not be happy with the resulting appearance. We offer cosmetic procedures like labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, clitoral hood reduction, and hymenoplasty. Matching the procedure to your needs restores confidence and sexual response. 

The right treatment for you is a personal choice. Consult with our experts at Southeast Urogyn to find the best solution. Call our nearest office to schedule your visit today. We’re located in Madison and Flowood, Mississippi.
