As a woman, you want to feel comfortable and confident with your body, and that doesn’t only include your face and your figure. If you have discomforts or insecurities about your vulva or vagina, it can truly weigh on your sense of confidence and ease. Our board-certified gynecologist Dr. Kristine Gould treats women every day who have these struggles.
Fortunately, there are ways to rejuvenate and enhance your genital area to make you feel more content in your womanhood and to address related issues like urinary incontinence and sexual discomfort. Depending on your top concerns, Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett offers two effective procedures: laser vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Your vagina and other female reproductive areas change over time in several ways. You might develop vaginal laxity or vaginal dryness, for example. You might also begin to have urinary incontinence like leaking when you cough, or you may have pain or bleeding during sex. These changes often happen as your body’s estrogen levels decrease during menopause, but they can appear at other times of life as well.
Whatever the reason, laser vaginal rejuvenation with FemTouch™ is a non-invasive and gentle yet powerful way to treat all those issues at the same time. During this quick and simple treatment, our board-certified gynecologist uses a specialized laser wand to clear away damaged tissue and stimulate natural growth of revitalized tissue inside your vagina. Not only does this give you strong, rejuvenated vaginal tissue but it increases the blood flow that nourishes your vagina, all leading to more natural vaginal hydration and urinary control.
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a highly convenient way to empower your vaginal health and comfort. The procedure is quick, and we perform it right in our office. There’s no downtime required other than avoiding sexual activity for about a week. Most patients will get optimal results within two to four treatment sessions, although your course of treatment will be customized to meet your specific needs.
While laser vaginal rejuvenation is designed to treat your internal genitals, labiaplasty is a procedure designed for a particular part of your external genitals: your labia minora, or the “ruffled edge” of tissue around the outside of your vagina.
Some women have naturally larger labia than others. The labia can also become enlarged due to childbirth or aging. Regardless of the reason, larger labia minora don’t align as well with the labia majora (the outer flap-like skin that lays on top of your vulva). This can make certain activities difficult, like some types of exercise and sexual activity. It can also make it uncomfortable for you to wear certain form-fitting clothes like yoga pants and swimsuits, and it can even increase your risk of urinary tract infections.
These are issues that affect a large number of women, which is why labiaplasty surgery has become increasingly popular. During a labiaplasty, board-certified gynecologist Dr. Kristine Gould safely and precisely reshapes your labia minora to be smaller and better aligned with your labia majora.
At our medical spa, MadEmEl Medial Aesthetics, we also offer a nonsurgical option for improving the appearance of your labia. Our nurse practitioner provides precise dermal filler injections to reduce labial wrinkles and give your labia a more youthful look.
Taking Control of Your Feminine Confidence
Feeling comfortable in your own skin goes a long way in life, from putting a smile on your face on a daily basis to allowing you to approach your career, relationships, and social situations with more ease. If self-consciousness or physical discomfort from your vagina or labia is affecting you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kristine Gould. She’ll listen to your concerns and discuss the best way to give you the relief and the feminine rejuvenation you need. In the meantime, follow us on Facebook for more gynecological health tips.
