Vaginal Rejuvenation: Is It Really Worth The Hype?

We all wish we could stay young forever, but however much we try to stay youthful, our age catches up somehow. With all the devices to keep our skin new, why not try to perk up the old machine?

Society has such a strict quota for women trying to keep up in a world getting old can be replaced with botox, facelifts, and a plethora of aesthetic procedures to keep us young. Have we even looked down to perk up?

Society has always put a stigma around a woman’s vagina, the way it looks, how it lubricates, and how tight it is. But have we gone too far trying to fix problems with empty solutions?

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a non-invasive medical procedure that promises to give you a tighter vagina, better lubrication, improving your sexual experiences, and even helping urinary incontinence.

How can one small laser device deliver all these solutions? That may be because vaginal rejuvenation is more of a marketing strategy aimed at women to target insecurity and the actual issues we face!

How Is It Dangerous?

In the wrong hand’s laser devices like the one that’s supposed to rejuvenate your vagina can be dangerous. One mistake, and you could end up on an episode of Botched, and there might not be anything that the doctors can do for you.

These devices have been marketed for vaginal rejuvenation and sold to anyone with the money, but research and studies have not been done. We need research to avoid mistakes that have been made in the past.

Smoking, for example, was encouraged by those who hadn’t done the research. Later on, many people died from lung cancer and other smoking-related illnesses because people believed in marketing and became addicted to it.

Exposing your body to unnecessary radiation and laser beams has even resulted in scarring and burns. Those who’ve undergone the procedure have been left with chronic pain that makes sex uncomfortable and even unbearable.

How Did It Become Popular?

Celebrities, as usual, propelled the idea of vaginal rejuvenation to the public by promoting lubrication and aiding with incontinence, especially after having a baby. Those that suffer from these issues heard it, and it sounded like a miracle treatment!

However, certain devices have been used for treating different issues. One such is a CO2 laser that helps women with genitourinary syndrome of menopause.

Genitourinary syndrome of menopause can leave you with dryness, itching, and pain during sex which are normal symptoms of menopause but can be unbearable and debilitating for others. The laser helps treat those with incontinence.

When it comes to your health research your doctors, make sure they’re registered, especially when undergoing any aesthetic procedures. Because some procedures can leave irreversible damage, and you’ll never feel the same again!
