The loose vagina and saggy labia – why it happens and what to do about it
The vaginal wall is made up of very dense connective tissue, with a very hefty blood supply. There are a great many nerves that link through this area, which is lined by special skin cells. The vulva is more ‘skin-like’ than the vagina, and has an even heavier blood and nerve supply than anywhere else on the human body.
The vaginal delivery
Vaginal deliveries can cause stretching of the connective tissue of the vagina and the vulva (labia), and as it heals, it may never recover its former elasticity and firmness.
Age and hormones also affect the condition of the vagina and vulva. As the vagina and other local structures are stretched out, other issues can arise like stress urinary incontinence and atrophic vaginitis.
One of the major issues with this vulvovaginal laxity is reduced sensations during sex, which can have a negative impact on relationships and self-esteem. The net effect is reduced quality of life.
The aesthetics of the vulva
An element of laxity of the vagina and vulva is its appearance, which can be displeasing to some women. This can lead to self-consciousness. Labia majora (outer vaginal lips) can also cause discomfort and irritation when wearing tight clothes and during sex. Orgasms can disappear or become much harder to achieve due to a lack of friction (looseness).
We can tighten vaginas and vulvas (surgery-free)
We have treatments that can contract tissues, effectively tightening the vagina and labia, also promoting new collagen formation. The old collagen may have been stretched, so the formation of new collagen is imperative when tightening and rejuvenating vaginal and vulvar tissue.
Our Intimate Program combines several highly effective treatments that tighten, restore natural vaginal moisture, improve sexual sensitivity, and have a significant positive impact on stress urinary incontinence.
