Vaginal dryness is an uncomfortable symptom that many women may experience at any time in their lives. When this happens, the vagina does not produce the layer of clear liquid that keeps it lubricated. A drop in estrogen levels can cause vaginal dryness and irritation. This can cause a woman to have itching, burning in their vaginal area. Many women also experience painful intercourse. These symptoms are extremely troublesome and can seriously affect your quality of life.
There are several factors that contribute to vaginal dryness that include menopause, childbirth, breastfeeding, and radiation. The surgical removal of ovaries, chemotherapy and anti-estrogen medications can also cause vaginal dryness.
Many women begin to deal with vaginal dryness during middle age when their hormones begin to change. If you have any of these symptoms, a medical professional can help diagnose your condition. There are medications that you can take in pill form and creams to help increase vaginal lubrication. You can also use a ring that contains estrogen and releases it directly into the vagina.
Besides using these methods, you can undergo the Intima Laser feminine rejuvenation treatment at FamWell MD. This procedure gives the vagina a more youthful appearance and restores the vulva. It also enhances confidence, your sex life, and alleviates dryness. It is a cosmetic laser procedure that tightens the vagina and gets rid of loose tissue. The treatment is done with a co2 fractional laser device and is non-invasive. After the procedure, the thickness, sensation, and lubrication of your vagina increases, and you get a boost of self-esteem.
During the procedure, the co2 laser device is used to increase collagen and elastin production by stimulating the tissue. The fibers shrink and firm up, improving the appearance of the vaginal canal and labia. It helps relieve the dryness and itchiness, as well as reducing the signs of childbirth, aging, or surgeries. Women that suffer from post-menopausal symptoms find relief from inflammation and the lack of moisture. They can also see a difference in vaginal tissue after the treatment. The Intima Laser procedure also helps alleviate the symptoms of urinary incontinence and bladder conditions.
Even though the procedure is done within a short period of time, patients may be required to follow up for maintenance. Before you have the procedure done, you should schedule a consultation with a medical procedure to make sure you are making the right decision. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation!
