Women’s bodies can experience many changes through the years: from the stresses of childbirth to the hormonal changes brought on by menopause. These physical changes, such as weaker pelvic floor muscles or vaginal dryness, can contribute to lower self-esteem and lower sex drive (low libido)..
Though these changes are natural and happen to almost all women, many women are reluctant to talk to their doctors about ways to improve their intimacy issues. Fortunately, there are new non-invasive treatments that can help improve your sex drive and sexual satisfaction.
Types of Non-Invasive Vaginal Rejuvenation
At Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, we offer comprehensive, non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation options, including:
Votiva which uses two radiofrequency devices (FormaV and FractoraV) to refresh and rejuvenate the vagina and vulva tissues. This treatment can have benefits such as:
- Enhanced tightness
- Improved muscle tone
- Increased sensitivity
- Improved appearance
- Reduced vaginal dryness
- Reduced sexual discomfort
- Improve urinary control
Votiva also increases blood flow to your vaginal area, which can help alleviate pain and sensitivity if you have labia hypertrophy (large labia that cause discomfort).
FormaV applies radiofrequency energy to the vaginal canal, which can stimulate healing and blood flow. It can tighten the tissues and increase sensitivity so you have a more pleasurable sexual experience.
FractoraV is used on the labia, improving the appearance of your genital area. This can boost your self-esteem.
Most women are able to resume normal activities immediately after the Votiva procedure. You may notice results immediately and will continue to see improved results for weeks after your treatment as your body continues to heal.
For the best outcome, we recommend repeating the Votiva treatment once per month for three months, then maintenance appointments every 9 to 12 months after that.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
PRP injections, sometimes called the “O Shot”, can also help treat many aspects of dissatisfying sexual experiences, including:
- Painful sex
- Lack of orgasms
- Lack of clitoral sensitivity
- Loose vaginal canal
- Wrinkled labia appearance
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary incontinence
PRP injections use platelet-rich plasma from your own blood to stimulate healing, tissue repair, collagen production and improved blood flow. First, we will draw a small amount of your blood from your arm. Next, we will spin it in a centrifuge twice to separate the platelet-rich plasma from red blood cells. We then inject the plasma in strategic areas to improve vaginal health.
Because it is non-invasive, there is little pain or downtime after PRP injections. You can likely resume normal activity the same day as your treatment. You may begin to see results within a few days to weeks as your body uses the plasma to grow and heal. Repeat injections may lead to even better outcomes, depending on your individual needs.
