Treatment for Vaginal Looseness

Vaginal Laxity (looseness) is most commonly described by patients as a lack of sensation with intercourse or decrease in sensation with intercourse. This condition is more common in women who have experienced a vaginal birth, but other women also experience this symptom.

This condition can really impact a woman's self-esteem and self-confidence. If your intimate life is suffering, talk with us. You can trust that your concerns will be heard without judgement. We'll do our best to find the right solution for you.

We offer a number of different treatments both in our Spa and through Minnesota Women's Care. Among the options are:


FemiLift uses a laser system to provide a non-surgical, quick and safe solution for various common feminine issues, such as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, recurring infections, and more.


Viveve is a treatment that uses gentle deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation process. It is a comfortable, single-session, 30-minute treatment. Viveve works at a cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen within the vaginal tissue – without surgery and without disrupting the surface tissue.


THERMIva is a non-surgical treatment that is designed to comfortably restore the elastic, youthful properties to the inner and outer vaginal area without the need for plastic surgery, pain, or downtime. THERMIva uses RF energy that gently heats tissue to restore normal tissue tone and function. When used inside the vagina, it has proven to effectively revive atrophic tissue and other structures.

MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser for gynecologic use that delivers energy to tissue. This convenient laser procedure takes less than 5 minutes to deliver gentle energy to the targeted area. There is no downtime and patients are calling the procedure “Game-Changing”.

Additional Intimate Treatments

Dr. Ashford has dedicated his surgical career to the evaluation and treatment of women with vaginal and pelvic disorders or concerns. As one of the first physicians in the nation to be board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology), Dr. Ashford is known in the Twin Cities as a skilled pelvic surgeon with proven experience helping women with a full range of pelvic floor disorders. A full range of intimate treatments are available through Cosmetic & Reconstructive Gynecology by Minnesota Women's Care. This includes:

Intimate Bleaching: Vaginal/Vulvar Lightening

Though there is no normal colored vagina, vulva, or anus, in most women the genital areas will be darker than other skin. Some women seek help to correct the darkening of these tissues that occurs with age and normal activity.  

O-Shot for Orgasm Improvement

The O-Shot is an injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) around the clitoris, the urethra, and vagina. It results in improved nerve and collagen growth as a result of the stimulation provided by the platelets and growth factors contained in the solution. The plasma is derived from your own blood. 


Most often, the term "labiaplasty" refers to a procedure used to reduce and even out the inner lips - labia minora - of the exterior female genitalia. The women who request this procedure are uncomfortable with the size of the labia minora, their non-symmetrical appearance, length, or discoloration.
