Unlocking the Secrets: What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation and How Does It Work?

Life events like childbirth can lead to changes in vaginal health, affecting both appearance and function. Over time, these changes might include laxity and urinary incontinence, challenges that many face but few discuss openly. At Better Body, Inc., serving Long Island and Medford, NY, we address these intimate concerns through vaginal rejuvenation.

Vaginal rejuvenation is a discreet way to improve vaginal and pelvic floor health. Using EMSELLA®, we, as physical therapists, leverage our deep understanding of the human body to enhance treatment outcomes. This method is designed to be less invasive and more accessible and can give patients the gift of regained comfort and functionality.

What Is Vaginal Laxity?

Vaginal laxity is the loosening of vaginal tissues, a condition often stemming from childbirth, aging, or hormonal changes. This change can affect a woman’s sexual wellness and overall pelvic health.

Symptoms of Vaginal Laxity

  • Loss of Tightness: Experiencing a noticeable decrease in vaginal tightness can be a clear sign of laxity. This symptom impacts not just physical health but can also affect vaginal tightening treatments and their outcomes.
  • Sensation Changes: Changes in sensation during physical activities or intimate moments can indicate altered vaginal tissues. These changes are often subtle and gradually noticed over time.
  • Aesthetic Changes: Visual changes in the appearance of the vaginal area are common with laxity. While often overlooked, these changes can influence one’s sense of sexual wellness and comfort.
  • Impact on Intimacy: Vaginal laxity may lead to challenges in intimate relationships, as changes in physical sensations can alter the dynamics of intimacy.
  • Vaginal Dryness: Often accompanying laxity, vaginal dryness can exacerbate discomfort and is a treatable condition. Addressing vaginal dryness is integral to managing the symptoms of vaginal laxity effectively.

Causes of Vaginal Laxity

Aging and Hormonal Changes

As women age, hormonal fluctuations, particularly a decrease in estrogen levels, contribute to vaginal laxity. This natural decline in hormone production leads to the weakening of vaginal tissues and loss of elasticity, which are common aspects of the aging process.

Childbirth and Physical Stress

Childbirth is one of the primary causes of vaginal laxity. The intense physical stress of delivering a baby can stretch vaginal tissues and pelvic floor muscles, often leading to long-term changes. The impact is more pronounced with multiple deliveries or particularly strenuous births.

Genetic Factors

Genetic predispositions also play a role in determining the strength and resilience of vaginal tissues. Some women may be more prone to experiencing vaginal laxity due to hereditary traits that affect tissue elasticity and muscle strength.

Lifestyle Influences

Certain lifestyle choices can influence the severity of vaginal laxity. Factors such as smoking, lack of exercise, and obesity can exacerbate the weakening of pelvic floor muscles and tissues, contributing to the condition. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle may help mitigate some of these effects and support overall pelvic health.

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation encompasses various treatments that restore vaginal functionality and appearance. These non-invasive options improve symptoms like dryness, laxity, and urinary incontinence while enhancing a woman’s pelvic health. It offers non-invasive solutions that support the body’s natural processes and improve overall well-being.

What Device Do We Use for Vaginal Rejuvenation?

For vaginal rejuvenation, we use the EMSELLA device, a non-surgical technology designed specifically for pelvic floor strengthening. EMSELLA is renowned for its effectiveness in treating pelvic floor issues without invasive procedures or embarrassing treatments, providing a comfortable and accessible option for patients seeking improvement in pelvic health.

How Does EMSELLA Work?

The technology behind EMSELLA involves high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. This energy stimulates pelvic floor muscles intensely, inducing thousands of supramaximal contractions per session. These contractions are important because they retrain the muscles of the pelvic floor and promote vaginal rejuvenation.

What Can EMSELLA Do? 

Strengthens Pelvic Floor Muscles

This pelvic floor dysfunction treatment strengthens the muscles in the pelvic floor. This reinforcement enhances support for the pelvic organs and improves overall pelvic health, all while offering vaginal rejuvenation.

Treats Urinary Incontinence

By targeting and reinforcing pelvic floor muscles, EMSELLA treatments offer urinary incontinence treatment. Patients experience fewer episodes of involuntary leakage, which is a common concern, especially among older women and those who have undergone childbirth.

Improves Sexual Function

Improved control and strength of the pelvic floor muscles contribute to better sexual function. This benefit is particularly noticeable in the treatment of conditions like vaginal dryness, which can significantly affect comfort and sexual satisfaction.

Supports Postpartum Recovery

EMSELLA treatment offers considerable support in postpartum recovery, aiding new mothers in regaining strength and stability in the pelvic region. This process helps women after childbirth to feel more like themselves and to have a faster recovery. 

Enhances Vaginal Tightness

Through its intensive muscular contractions, EMSELLA also contributes to vaginal tightening. This results in improved muscle tone, which can enhance both physical sensations and aesthetic aspects of vaginal health.

Walking You Through Your First EMSELLA Treatment

Your first vaginal rejuvenation session with EMSELLA will be comfortable and hassle-free. You will remain fully clothed during the treatment, sitting on the EMSELLA device that resembles a chair. As the session starts, you may feel a tingling sensation as the device emits electromagnetic waves, actively stimulating your pelvic floor muscles. 

Typically, a complete treatment course consists of about six sessions, each lasting approximately 30 minutes. These are usually scheduled twice a week. Many patients report feeling tangible improvements after the initial few sessions. 

After your treatment, you can expect to resume your daily activities immediately without any downtime. The sensation post-treatment is often described as mild muscular fatigue, similar to the feeling after a focused workout. This is a normal response as your muscles have been actively engaged.
