During and after menopause, women can experience a number of changes that reduce vaginal function and sexual pleasure. Laxity of vaginal tissues, vaginal dryness, stress incontinence: all these symptoms become more common with age.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

One option is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. As you go through menopause, your body produces less estrogen and progesterone, which can have a number of side effects including hot flashes, a disrupted sleep cycle, weight gain, and changes in mood.

Menopause is different for every woman. For some, it is mild enough not to require treatment. But for others, symptoms can be so severe that it may be advisable to supplement the hormones your body is no longer making with regular pills, patches, or injections.

If you are experiencing any vaginal symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may mitigate them by stabilizing your estrogen and progesterone levels. Before embarking on this treatment, consult with your doctor to measure your hormone levels and assess whether it is needed.

Other Methods of Vaginal Rejuvenation

Another option is RF therapy. This involves the use of radiofrequency energy to stimulate tissue growth and collagen formation in the vaginal walls. Old tissue is replaced with newer, rejuvenated tissue, with a corresponding restoration of sexual function.

Among the symptoms that RF therapy can alleviate:

  • Laxity: The vagina is tightened, which eliminates sagging and makes intercourse more comfortable.
  • Dryness: Rejuvenated vaginal skin is softer and thicker.
  • Sexual Dysfunction: The vagina‚Äôs sensitivity is improved, and muscular contractions during orgasm are strengthened.
  • Stress Incontinence: Firmer vaginal tissue reduces the probability of leakages and accidents.

A reduction of vaginal functioning is normal after menopause, but there are many things we can do to address your symptoms. Contact Premier Wellness and Aesthetics Center if you are in need of vaginal rejuvenation.
