Vaginas, as you might already know, are surprisingly resilient and can stretch to wide lengths especially during childbirth. It is a myth that vaginas will become loose after having children but it can happen should you give birth to several children throughout your lifetime.
Another factor contributing to a need for vaginal tightening would be after menopause. These hormonal changes might cause the vagina to be more lax and dry, potentially affecting the quality of your life.
Vaginal tightening surgery is a procedure that involves tightening the vaginal canal through surgery and can be combined with labiaplasty surgery to reduce the size of the labia minora. This procedure can be invasive and there is a recovery downtime.
Vaginal tightening surgery actually covers several different procedures.
Some of the different procedures are:

There are, fortunately, non-invasive alternatives to vaginal tightening surgery. Cambridge Therapeutics offers Venus Fiore Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment as one such alternative.
This treatment can help to address the external appearance of the vagina, postmenopausal and childbirth vaginal laxity as well as vaginal atrophy.
With the Venus Fiore machine, the treatment allows for three different treatments of the rejuvenation to the vaginal canal, the tightening of the labia as well as the reduction of the mon pubis.
This treatment in particular works by combining multi-polar radiofrequency (RF) with pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). With this combination, it aims to encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres. This will help to regenerate firm and healthy tissues while increasing the rate of healing and improve blood circulation.
Multi-polar Radiofrequency (RF): The RF is safe for all skin types and is not absorbed by melanin. Through a safe and controlled heating method, heat from the RF can be distributed deeper into the tissues for collagen remodelling and synthesis.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF): A non-thermal mechanism, the PEMF functions to induce the release of fibroblast growth that will help to trigger the synthesis of collagen and the formation of new blood vessels for tissue regeneration. 
This treatment is targeted towards women who have experienced menopause or experienced a change in vaginal health as a result of childbirth. Pregnant women or women that have had surgery on their genitalia should consult their doctors before going for this treatment.
The Venus Fiore employs a safe heating method that will ensure that the treatment process is comfortable for the client. The treatment is not painful though a mild heat sensation and redness may be observed that should resolve within a day. There is no downtime and clients will be able to return to their daily routine immediately.
Each treatment session takes 10-15 minutes per area, and we recommend our clients to go for a session each month for the next 3-4 months for effective results.
It is important to compare the benefits and risks of both treatments before making an informed decision.
