It is a fact of life that the vagina changes as women age. Aging and menopause can lead to drying and thinning of the vaginal walls as collagen breaks down and estrogen levels plummet. This all leads to painful sex for women. Although a quality sex lubricant can help relieve some of the discomforts, the texture of the vagina may feel stiff, lax, old, or rough. Feminine rejuvenation at FamWell MD may be a viable option to restore you to your old vitality.
The psychological aversion to the pain of sexual intercourse can further lead to sexual dysfunction. The changes to the vagina typically occur after childbirth, menopause, or simply from aging in general. If women are not regularly having sex, this also leads to accumulative dryness and opens the door for infections that cause strong odors.
Urinary incontinence occurs for similar reasons: pregnancy, childbirth, menopause. The bladder can move and suffer pressure. Some women develop fistulas that require surgery for correction. Many times, it is as simple as relaxation of the urethral muscles or a change in position. Over 25% of women experience urinary incontinence and wear panty liners daily to absorb any embarrassing leaks.
There is a new therapy that can now be completed without side-effects right in our office. Feminine rejuvenation with the CO2RE Intima Laser is a tiny carbon dioxide-controlled laser that is used to stimulate collagen growth in both the external and internal parts of the vagina.
You may obtain immediate results from just one feminine rejuvenation treatment. It will improve the texture of the vagina, reduce urinary incontinence, and improve vaginal wetting to reduce painful friction during sex. Using a laser to stimulate collagen is the most effective cellular level treatment possible. Similar techniques are used to correct damaged vocal chords of star vocalists after long irritating bouts. The state-of-the-art laser technology can actually stimulate the vagina at a cellular level with deep penetration and no scarring.
