Last night was the first time you and your partner had sex since the baby arrived. It was pretty uneventful. Deciding to have a natural birth is a fantastic experience. If you refuse the epidural, then you're going to have a life experience that changes everything about your being, from your mindset – to your vagina.
Natural childbirth wrecks the walls of your vagina, leaving them in pretty bad shape. So, you're probably wondering, "how do I make my vagina tight again?" Most women find they need a mix of cosmetic surgery and physiotherapy to restore the health of the vaginal and pelvic muscles.
However, if you had a C-section, there's less damage to your vagina, but you still might experience looseness due to the damage to the muscles in the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is like a hammock of muscle tissue, keeping your bladder and uterus in the right position.
A C-section can destroy the pelvic muscles, resulting in the development of urinary incontinence. With this condition, women experience a sensation where they can't hold their bladder, or it feels full all the time. As a result, they may dribble, causing embarrassment.
What Is Collagen?
To repair your vagina after natural childbirth or C-section, you need the help of cosmetic surgery, physiotherapy, and non-surgical therapies. One of these non-surgical therapies includes the use of a CO2 laser. The therapist uses this instrument on your labia and vaginal walls, stimulating the tissues to produce collagen.
What is collagen? It's the most abundant protein in your body, and it's critical for assisting with cell repair and rejuvenation. Collagen is available in supplement format, and you can find it in food. However, your body also produces collagen, and you can stimulate your production of this protein using the CO2 laser.
Why Do You Need Collagen?
Collagen is one of the body's primary building blocks for skin and muscle tissues. The damage incurred by the vagina during birth or C-section leaves the tissues in a distressed state.
By increasing collagen production in the vaginal walls and pelvic muscles, you speed up your recovery from the birth, building the strength back in your vagina.
What are the Issues Associated with Low Collagen Production?
Low collagen production dramatically affects your health and well-being. When the muscles and tissues in your vagina and pelvis start to lose collagen, they experience the following symptoms.
Stress incontinence where any form of activity places pressure on your bladder, making you leak
Thinning of the vaginal walls, leading to painful penetration and dryness
Vaginal dryness which requires you to use lubrication during sex
You can overcome all these health issues by increasing collagen production and restoring the health of muscles and tissues in your vagina.
Restore Your Collagen Production with Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation using the CO2 laser is the best non-surgical method of vaginal rejuvenation available. This procedure helps to stimulate collagen production in the tissues and muscles around the labia and vagina.
After one session, you'll notice a significant difference in the tightness of your vagina, and how it feels during sex. A series of treatments will help your vagina recover from the effects of childbirth. You'll start to notice that the symptoms of weak pelvic muscles, such as incontinence, begin to disappear.
With a few months of treatment, your vagina will be feeling better than before you had your child. The laser therapy is non-invasive and painless. You can complete it without anesthetic, and it's a safe therapy you can repeat two or three times a week, at the guidance of your rejuvenation therapist.
Most women find they can return to normal activities the day after the therapy. The results are impressive, and it's a painless procedure. Most women state that a pap smear is more uncomfortable that CO2 laser therapy.
What Can You Expect from Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Each case is different, and your therapist will advise you on your options on a case-by-case basis, to determine a custom therapy solution for you. The therapist performs the treatment in their offices, and it lasts anywhere up to 45 to 90-minutes.
Your therapy sessions' length and structure depend on your goals and the extent of the treatment required to restore your vagina to full health. The laser device is the size of a toothbrush head. The therapist inserts in around an inch or two into the opening of the vagina.
Patients will feel a slight tingling sensation, but no pain. There's a bit of redness and swelling after the treatment, but that fades overnight.
After completing your treatment plan, you can expect to feel like you're in your teens again!
