Many women suffer from a condition known as Vaginal Laxity. This means that the vagina muscles have been stretched out from childbirth, age or other conditions. It can be an embarrassing condition to talk about and because of this, most women go untreated. You might not be thinking it is a big deal, but vaginal laxity can cause lowered sexual desire, self-conscious feelings, and can also affect a woman’s sexual health. Women can also experience the leaking of urine when coughing or sneezing due to this condition. While surgery is an option, there are also non-invasive treatments for vaginal rejuvenation.
The Mona Lisa Touch
One option is The Mona Lisa Touch, which is a non-invasive treatment option that uses lasers to treat vaginal laxity. It can strengthen the muscles, increase lubrication, and help to improve pain felt during sexual intercourse. The laser helps to increase collagen production. It only takes about 5 minutes per session. It is suggested that three sessions that are six weeks apart are a typical treatment protocol.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
This method is more of a natural treatment, which involves using growth factors from a woman’s own blood. This type of treatment is given in the form of an injection. A patient would have blood drawn, and the platelets would be separated out. It would then be injected into the areas of the vagina that need rejuvenation. The whole process is practically effortless and takes about 30 minutes.
This non-surgical treatment option that can tighten the vagina without cutting into the vaginal walls.

Vagina Fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, which is usually used in facelifts and other plastic surgery procedures. Dubbed the “G Shot”, it can be used to increase sexual pleasure that has been lost due to vaginal laxity.
This type of non-surgical procedure involves using Radiofrequency energy that can help to produce more collagen and heal the vagina muscles. This treatment can also be used on the labia, which overtime can become stretched out, causing decreased sexual sensations and self-conscious feelings. Patients only tend to feel a warming sensation, but no pain. Sessions last for about 15 minutes and about 4 are needed for the treatment to be complete.
