If you’re having problems with vaginal dryness and itching, and you’re losing interest in sexual intercourse, don’t just chalk it up to the routine aging process. The providers at South Miami OB/GYN Associates in South Miami, Florida, use advanced laser therapy for a quick, painless, and highly effective treatment to eliminate your symptoms and restore your vaginal health. Call or contact the office with our convenient online program to schedule your appointment.
Vaginal dryness leading to irritation occurs naturally with aging as collagen and elastin production decrease. Hormonal changes after menopause can also wreak havoc on vaginal health, decreasing tone and muscle fitness in the vaginal area.
Childbirth is another natural occurrence that often stretches and causes laxity in the vaginal muscles.
While these symptoms are discouraging enough on their own, problems such as stress urinary incontinence and increased risk of vaginal infection can also be due to a decline in vaginal health.
Lasers used for vaginal rejuvenation are powered by CO2 and these handheld devices are designed to fit into the vagina for treatment. When you undergo a laser treatment, the heat energy produced by the laser ablates or removes the top layers of the tissue lining the vagina. When this occurs, the body goes into healing mode and stimulates collagen and elastin to help heal, tone, and strengthen the vaginal wall. This process makes sexual intercourse enjoyable again as it reduces dryness and irritation. Because stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is often a consequence of bladder drooping or prolapse, vaginal laser rejuvenation also successfully treats (SUI) by strengthening the vaginal wall. This supports the bladder and brings it back into the correct position.
It’s a relatively quick procedure that lasts under 30 minutes.
There’s no recovery time afterward but it is generally recommended you avoid sexual intercourse for 3-5 days following a treatment. The providers at South Miami OB/GYN Associates recommend 3 treatments for best results, using the FemTouch™ laser, the newest model from Lumenis®.
