Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation

As people age, the skin tissue loses volume and elasticity due to reduced levels of collagen. The vaginal tissue is no different. With the aging process, women experience a loss in the strength and structure of the vaginal tissue. As collagen production in the body naturally decreases with age, laxity becomes a more prominent issue. Childbirth, genetics, and certain lifestyle habits can also contribute to vaginal laxity. 

For women experiencing looseness in the vaginal tissue, particularly around the vaginal opening, vaginal rejuvenation is worth consideration. This cosmetic procedure restores the strength and tightness of the vaginal tissue, providing numerous benefits to patients. The main benefits of vaginal rejuvenation include: Read More
