As we age, a woman’s body changes and bears the signs of aging. Especially for those who have gone through the process of childbirth, the effects are magnified.
The physical effects of childbirth on the female body include loss of vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. The internal and external diameters of the vagina become stretched and the vagina does not return to its pre-pregnancy state. Over time, these physical effects worsen. That means seemingly minor differences in appearance, function, and sexual gratification become more pronounced. This is even more magnified in women who have delivered multiple children.
Many women can feel those physical changes. Each of these factors individually contributes to lessened sexual gratification and when combined there is a significant decrease.
Not only is sexual gratification negatively impacted by these physical changes, but stress urinary incontinence can also occur leading to social embarrassment. The involuntary loss of urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising is called stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a common result of childbirth especially multiple deliveries. Vaginal and perineal body muscles (muscles located between the rectum and vagina) are strained significantly during childbirth. These muscles can be stretched so much that they cannot return to their pre-pregnancy state and are permanently weakened. Even with Kegels or other commonly-recommended treatments these muscles never get back to normal. The lack of structure and strength in your muscles can lead to stress urinary incontinence.
The Fotona Vaginal Erbium Laser can be is an innovative and highly effective treatment for vaginal weakness and stress urinary incontinence, resulting in improved sexual gratification and the end of embarrassing involuntary urinary leaks. The Fotona “G-Runner” causes a photo-thermal heating effect on the collagen in the vaginal walls and urethra. This in turn causes restructuring and regrowth of collagen, resulting in thickening and tightening of the vaginal walls and urethra. New collagen begins to be deposited in 3 weeks but maximal effect is achieved in 6-8 months as the collagen matures.
