Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQ
What is radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation and how does it work?
Radiofrequency is a noninvasive method to rejuvenate skin on various parts of the body. By heating up tissues using radiofrequency, natural collagen production is increased, and vaginal laxity can be reversed. This procedure can also be used to restore damage to the genitalia done during childbirth or changes that occur with hormonal fluctuation.
What kind of results can I expect from radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation?
While tightening to the labia majora will be immediately noticeable, it may take for up to a month for the full impact of the procedure to take effect. Many people report improvement of sexual functioning after a single treatment. Lubrication and sensation may also be restored.
How long does radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation Last?
The procedure typically takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes in office. Many people report benefits being visibly noticeable within 2 weeks, and results lasting for up to 12 to 18 months. Follow up sessions to total 3 treatments are recommended 3-6 weeks apart for best results.
What is the recovery period for radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation?
There is no downtime after treatment, but a few minor side effects, such as vaginal discharge and soreness may be noticeable. Many people report the procedure as being like a warm massage. You may resume normal activity after the procedure.
Will I need anesthesia during radiofrequency treatment?
All anesthesia is done using a compounded topical lidocaine numbing agent. This numbing agent is only applied externally, not inside the vagina. When delivering RF to the vaginal mucosa, a wand is used that contacts the mucosa and a warming sensation is expected. This however does require complete shaving of the entire pubic area.
How long should I wait to have sex after the procedure?
You should wait 3 to 6 days after radiofrequency treatment. Be sure to take note of unusual soreness. Use a good water-soluble lubricant such as Astroglide if desired.
