A woman’s vagina is a remarkable organ. It can stretch to deliver a ten-pound baby and regain its shape postpartum. Age, menopause and multiple child-births can change the structure of the vaginal tissues and weaken the pelvic floor muscles.
“Vaginal Rejuvenation” is an umbrella term that covers many different treatments including laser, electromagnetic therapy, injections, invasive treatments and hormonal therapies. Traditionally, treatments focused on cosmetic concerns with the aim of improving sex or self-esteem. Today, vaginal tightening and rejuvenation also aims to address true medical symptoms associated with vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) or vaginal atrophy by restoring healthy vaginal attributes such as strength, lubrication, tone and sensation. Tightening of the pelvic floor muscles promotes increased bladder control.
What is VRS, Vaginal Atrophy & Incontinence?
VRS (vaginal relaxation syndrome) occurs when the vaginal wall weakens and becomes lax. VRS can reduce sexual satisfaction for both partners. Vaginal atrophy is the thinning, dryness and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Symptoms include pain during intercourse, loss of lubrication and itching. Vaginal atrophy can also impact function and the quality of intercourse.
Stress incontinence is the result of poorly functioning pelvic floor muscles that provide insufficient support for pelvic organs and affect bladder control. Symptoms include urine leakage when you laugh, cough or sneeze, or do certain activities.
What Causes VRS, Vaginal Atrophy & Incontinence?
After childbirth or during menopause, many women suffer from weakening pelvic floor muscles and vaginal tissues. Laxity of the vaginal wall, often exacerbated by menopause, can be caused by pregnancy and childbirth. Vaginal atrophy is the result of declining estrogen levels and the wall of the vagina thins, weakens and loses moisture.
Although ageing is a leading cause, these conditions can affect women of all ages and often lead to anxiety and emotional stress, as well as physical discomfort and strain on intimate relationships.
Treatment with Lotus GynoLaser offers a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation and tightening solution. The treatment works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, giving strength to the vaginal tissues. It triggers your body’s natural regenerative processes, leading to a tighter and more lubricated vaginal wall and improved strength and elasticity of the pelvic floor muscles, thus improving bladder control. Lotus Gynolaser treatment uses advanced laser technology.
Stimulating and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles is key for treating incontinence.
The Emsella Chair offers a revolutionary treatment for incontinence that uses electromagnetic energy to improve the strength and structure of the pelvic floor muscles and vaginal wall. It stimulates 12,000 supra-maximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a half-hour treatment.
Emsella is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment and you remain fully-clothed. It’s as simple as sitting on a chair! The Emsella Chair is an FDA approved and TGA cleared device.
