What To Expect During Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure

For women who have problems with painful sex or who are just unhappy with the shape or condition of their vagina, vaginal rejuvenation is now an option thanks to medical technology. If you have been considering this kind of procedure for yourself, you may spend a lot of time researching the process. The primary things you should know is what to expect during and from this procedure. Take a look at some of the things you should expect to happen if you do end up choosing a vaginal rejuvenation procedure for yourself. 

Expect to have a detailed consultation with the doctor. 

Vaginal rejuvenation is a relatively new treatment, and it is a highly intimate procedure. Therefore, most women who are going in for this treatment will have a lot of questions and concerns. When you go for your first appointment to discuss your options, you can expect that there will be a fair amount of discussion and you will get the chance to find out anything you want to know. Before you go for this appointment, jot down the questions that you have in mind. Your doctor will be happy to cover any points that make you uneasy, curious, or uncomfortable. 

Expect to have to have more than one treatment session. 

Vaginal rejuvenation can happen with different procedures. However, the most common procedure involves using a laser to take away the upper layers of skin so they grow back in a state that is healthier and tighter and that has a more youthful in appearance. If this is the type of procedure you are going for, you can expect your doctor to recommend more than one treatment session. You will be treated, sent home to heal, and then brought back for another round as deemed appropriate by your treating doctor. 

Expect to have a short recovery time after each treatment. 

You probably won't really feel a lot of pain after the procedure, but you will need a short recovery time to allow your vaginal walls to properly heal after each treatment session. Your doctor will probably instruct you to steer clear of tampons and avoid sex for a bit to encourage proper healing. The recovery periods tend to be short, however, because the vaginal walls do heal rather quickly. It is not uncommon for treatment sessions to happen in rather quick succession because of this, which means the entire course of treatment will be over within a short time frame.
