Vontouring is a new procedure sweeping Europe that has recently been approved in the United States. This nonsurgical alternative to labiaplasty can be completed in as little as 12 minutes and may improve the appearance of the vulva after just one treatment. It is important to remember however that Vontouring is just a cosmetic treatment and is not well suited for addressing the same medical issues as surgical options such as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty.
If you have questions about vaginal rejuvenation for medical or aesthetic purposes, please call board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside at (888) 730-4113 to schedule your initial consultation today.
Vontouring uses a thermal pen-like device to stimulate collagen production. This helps firm and plump the labia while tightening vaginal muscles. In a recent study, 80 percent of Vontouring patients reported a more attractive labia appearance, but only 40 percent reported increased sexual response. This indicates that Vontouring may prove effective at improving vaginal contours, but should not be seen as a treatment for sexual enhancement.
