Unless you still subscribe to the stork theory, the extensive and often long-term effects childbirth can have on a mum’s body are something you are hopefully aware of.
The fact is the impact of birthing a multi-pound baby can be huge and may include – but is not limited to – the following:
Bruising, tearing, stretching, swelling, reduced feeling / pain during sex, incontinence and dryness.
Most online research into these effects asserts how, as organs go, the vagina is amazing – but how, post partum, it’s also never the same again
All of which can be responsible for a feeling of discomfort and self-consciousness in new mums.
Introducing the ‘vaginal facelift’
So perhaps it’s no surprise there is now a treatment available which can help with many of the effects of birth.
Understandably, the term ‘vaginal facelift’ may have you crossing your legs – or conjuring up unfortunate imagery.
However, according to the patient interviewed, it was no more uncomfortable than a smear test, can be done in 15 minutes and costs £499.
The non-surgical treatment involves the insertion of a cage-like cylinder and a speculum-style tool inside the vagina which administers the laser treatment, followed by lasering of the vulva including labia and clitoris.
How and why?
Nu-V vaginal rejuvenation treatment is akin to a facelift for vagina.
It was developed by Dr Natasha Ranga and Emma Soos, a clinical director and nurse, who experienced several of the above symptoms after having two children.
One patient who came to them admitted, following the birth of her babies, she was suffering from vaginal loosening, soreness, dryness, incontinence.
The treatment is now offered at Genesis Clinics, in Leicester, and will soon be coming to London.
What Genesis say the procedure can help achieve:
Relief from stress incontinence
Internal and external tightening
Heightened sexual satisfaction
Neat aesthetically pleasing labia
