It may not be something you regularly discuss with your friends and family, but it’s not uncommon for women to feel unhappy with the appearance of their labia. As with other parts of the body, the labia can be affected by pregnancy, childbirth or aging. The positive flipside of that is that cosmetic gynecology, whether surgical or nonsurgical, can help rejuvenate this most intimate area.
When researching cosmetic gynecology options, you’ll typically find two mentioned most frequently: labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation. What’s the difference between these procedures, and how do you know which one is right for you?
Candidates for Labiaplasty vs. Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty can help with a few common issues, including:
- Improving external labial appearance
- Discomfort during exercise or other physical activities
- Correcting asymmetry
Vaginal rejuvenation, on the other hand, addresses internal laxity rather than external cosmetic appearance. Candidates for vaginal rejuvenation may notice loose vaginal muscles, stress urinary incontinence or sexual dissatisfaction for themselves or their partner.
It used to be that women who experienced cosmetic as well as functional concerns would need to combine separate procedures. However, labia remodeling treatment with Intima can rejuvenate internal and external tissue simultaneously with the help of advanced radiofrequency technology.
Why Choose Non-Surgical Labiaplasty?
One of the main advantages of non-surgical labiaplasty over the surgical alternative is the lack of downtime. As the procedure is non-invasive, you’ll be able to go about your daily business as normal immediately, with no recovery time required. When carried out by a board-certified plastic surgeon, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation and labia remodeling can be a convenient, minimally invasive way to feel more confident from head to toe.
