VRS refers to the loss of structural support in the tissue of the vaginal canal from natural physiological changes like childbirth, menopause, and aging. The development of laxity in the vaginal walls results in a wider vagina with weaker vaginal muscles that contribute to decreased sexual gratification and the development of other secondary conditions like urinary incontinence and vaginal atrophy. Loss of vaginal tightness can affect women and their partners’ sexual relations, as the weak vaginal muscles result in less stimulation due to the lack of frictional contact during sexual intercourse.
Current methods of vaginal restoration include vaginoplasty or perineoplasty surgery, which involve high risks of further damage to the architecture of the urogenital areas in the female body. Risks associated with the surgical rearrangement of vaginal and peripheral tissue include bleeding, pain, infection, scarring, and the alteration of sensations in the operated areas. Although women do choose surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures, with the rise in the popularity of cosmetic gynecology, consumers are demonstrating massive interest in non-surgical treatments. Why? Non-surgical procedures can be incorporated into realistic schedules with quick treatments that require no downtime and no reported adverse side effects in clinical studies.
