What is Intimate Rejuvenation?
The vagina is susceptible to many changes over the course of a woman's life. Natural events such as childbirth, hormonal changes and muscular stress can have a major impact on this part of the body. Intimate rejuvenation (“IR”) refers to a variety of treatments that aim to provide a more youthful vagina both in terms of appearance and function. Non-surgical IR treatments can be broken down into two main categories: injectables and energy-based machines. Energy-based machines operate on the principle of using energy create controlled micro-injuries to the inner vaginal tissue or labia forcing the body to repair itself through the creation of new collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are important for maintaining the structure and function of the vagina. Injectables, like hyaluronic acid dermal fillers restore hydration, elasticity, tonicity, and sensitivity to the vaginal area as well as enhance the vagina’s appearance.
