Non-Surgical Labial Tightening: Everything You Need To Know

Non-surgical labial tightening is an innovative solution to common vaginal concerns. Labial laxity is something that many women deal with in silence, as it’s often considered a taboo topic, even in your GP’s office. 

There is certainly more medical support for these issues than there once was, but it can still be difficult to talk about. You might feel embarrassed to bring up your experience with labial laxity, sexual dysfunction or even the appearance of your vagina looking less ‘plump’ than it once did.

Since labial laxity doesn’t cause medical problems for many of the women dealing with it, it can be daunting to figure out who you can turn to for help, if not your GP. 

Fortunately, there is a simple and pain-free solution that will give you back your self-confidence.

What Is Non-Surgical Labial Tightening?

When struggling with labial laxity, your best solution is labial tightening! This non-surgical procedure is an effective treatment for the symptoms of excess labial tissue without the need for invasive surgeries.

Using a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound technology, you can remodel your labia, adding plumpness and reducing sagging.

The procedure can be carried out on the labia minora – the inner folds either side of the vaginal opening. This can be a troublesome area where some women see a loss of elasticity. It can also treat drooping of the labia majora, the larger skin folds that frame the vagina. 

What Causes Labial Laxity?

Labial laxity is such a widely reported issue because it has a variety of potential causes. Every single body is different, and some people can simply be born with atypical labia, but it’s important that you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Loose or lax labia can be distressing, no matter the cause.

Here are some of the most common factors that can lead to labial laxity:

Pregnancy

Pregnancy puts an inevitable strain on your body, particularly the vagina. Your labia swells during the 9 months of carrying your child, so you may experience a ‘loose’ labia even if you had a c-section.

Childbirth

Childbirth is the number one contributing factor to the loss of elasticity in the labia. Your vagina and labia stretch during birth to make room for baby. Afterwards, your skin may struggle to spring back to normal.

Ageing

The natural ageing process can lead to a loss of collagen regeneration in your skin. This isn’t isolated to just the labia, it affects areas all over your body, but you may notice a loss of fullness and shape in your intimate areas.

Myth: Too Much Sex

It’s a common myth in popular culture that having a lot of sex can lead to your vagina and labia becoming loose. This is incorrect, as the vagina is easily able to compensate during sexual intercourse, and the labia are unaffected.

What Problems Can Vaginal Laxity Cause?

Vaginal laxity is related to labial laxity, but it’s not the same thing. With vaginal laxity, you can experience a range of uncomfortable and worrying symptoms affecting your confidence and sexual function.

  • Sexual Dissatisfaction

Sexual dysfunction and dissatisfaction can occur when your vagina is less sensitive, has reduced blood flow or lacks the elasticity desired. 

  • Low Self Esteem

Of course, you want to feel confident in every inch of your body. Feeling that your vagina is loose or that it has lost its form can leave you with a poor self-image.

  • Discomfort

Because the labia can droop, it’s possible to trap them uncomfortable when sitting or exercising, and it can also be difficult to use tampons or moon cups. 

What Happens In Non-Surgical Labial Tightening

Labial tightening doesn’t require plastic surgery. It can be a simple procedure, quickly performed by a qualified clinician using the combined radiofrequency and ultrasound technology we mentioned earlier.

A specially designed ultrasound and RF tip is placed either inside the vagina or around the labia depending on your target areas. The process provides a heating effect that actively stimulates fibroblastic activity within your skin to improve smoothness and elasticity.

Radiofrequency (sometimes referred to as RF) has become popular because of its effective treatment range. The frequency level of radio waves doesn’t affect or harm neuromuscular structures as they’re not like electrical currents. That makes RF extremely safe and easy to use for aesthetic purposes such as skin tightening.

The treatment uses mild radiofrequency heat to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a key ingredient in supple and elastic skin, and the warming sensation of the procedure is soothing, not painful, making it an even more attractive solution for labial laxity.

What Can I Expect To See From My Non-Surgical Labial Tightening?

The results from your treatment can vary depending on the body part and the number of treatments you’ve received so far. Some women experience changes after just one treatment. You can expect your labia to feel plumper, lighter, and more youthful. You can also expect an improved sexual function, with most women reporting a sustained improvement in their sexual satisfaction compared to before their treatment. 

How Long Is The Treatment?

Your tightening treatment will only take around 20 minutes, which may come as a relief if you’re concerned about having a device in your most intimate area. But clinicians at Dr Sobia Medispa are trained, qualified and friendly, ensuring that the procedure is discreet and comfortable for you at every step.

Do I Need To Rest Afterwards?

The good news is that you do not need to rest after your labial tightening treatment. Because this procedure only uses safe radiofrequency and ultrasound, it doesn’t cause damage or problems that would require you to heal or rest. 

How Long Do the Results Last?

Your results will be long-lasting, with a noticeable difference lasting between 6 – 12 months. This gives you plenty of time to enjoy your new self-confidence and increased comfort. Further maintenance treatments are required.
