Don't Endure Painful Sex After Menopause: Learn About Our Vaginal Revitalization Therapy

Are you menopausal or perimenopausal, and starting to dread sexual encounters? Dryness and pain during intercourse can take the fun out of sex in a hurry, but not everyone feels comfortable with hormone replacement therapy. Fortunately, there’s a safe, easy way to revitalize your vagina and restore enjoyable sexual functionality. 

At Women First GYN in Chesapeake, Virginia, Dr. Margie Corney performs vaginal revitalization using a safe, gentle fractional CO2 laser to tighten and restore your vaginal tissues to their former elastic state. This can improve the look and feel of your vagina and give you your sex life back. Read on to find out if vaginal revitalization could be right for you, and what you can expect from the treatment.

Vulvovaginal atrophy

Natural decreases in estrogen levels can cause vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) in around 50% of post-menopausal women. If you have VVA, you might experience any or all of the following:

Having vaginal rejuvenation can provide improved aesthetic satisfaction as well as physical benefits. Women who have CO2 laser treatments report improved vaginal health, less irritation and infection, a tighter feeling vagina, fewer urinary leaks, and improved sexual relations

Laser therapy for vaginal rejuvenation

Dr. Corney provides safe, gentle laser treatment using the Lumenis® FemTouch™ system. The treatments only take about five minutes, and most patients say they only feel a slight warming sensation or a mild vibration. If you like, Dr. Corney can apply a light numbing cream before the laser therapy to make sure you are 100% comfortable.

You won't have any downtime after your treatment, which means you can go right back to your normal activities, including sex. You may plan to schedule 2-4 treatments about a month apart. Studies have shown that results from this treatment are still apparent up to 12 months after treatment.

After the first treatment, you'll slowly start seeing and feeling the results, as your vulva and vagina begin to tighten up again. You should also find that your body begins producing lubricant again when you are aroused, which can make sex more enjoyable.  

If you are post-menopausal and have been searching for a non-surgical, non-hormone therapy solution for vaginal looseness, dryness, or appearance, vaginal revitalization can allow you to regain control over how your body looks and feels.
