3 Reasons You Might Consider Vaginal Rejuvenation

3 Reasons You Might Consider Vaginal Rejuvenation

As you journey through life, changes in your body are common. And it can be particularly evident in your vaginal health.

The good news is that there is a solution for whatever life throws at your vaginal health with our vaginal rejuvenation technology

At Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Manuel Lopez and our team take great pride in offering women cutting-edge technologies that address concerns from head to toe. 

In the following article, we’re going to explore the three most common reasons why women seek our help for vaginal rejuvenation.

1. Life after menopause

You look forward to passing through menopause and the fact that you won’t be dealing with the hassle of monthly periods. But you’ve also been met with bigger challenges to your sex life.

The most common complaint after menopause is vaginal dryness, which affects more than half of women between the ages of 51 and 60.

Outside of vaginal dryness, the hormonal drop that comes with menopause can also lead to thinning vaginal tissue, less elasticity in your genitalia, and even a shortening of your vaginal canal. As you can imagine (or you’re experiencing firsthand), these issues can make intercourse uncomfortable and even painful.

2. Life after childbirth

Another issue that can affect the health of your vagina is childbirth. From vaginal laxity to vaginal dryness, women can encounter several issues after they give birth vaginally.

In most cases, things should return to normal. But remember, while you’re breastfeeding, your hormones still aren’t settled back to normal levels.

If, after about a year, you’re still experiencing vaginal issues, you may be a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation.

3. Life after cancer

For women who go through certain cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation, or hormone therapy, their sexual health can be greatly impacted. Depending upon the type of cancer, as well as the treatment and its duration, some women can be left with vaginal health issues, making them optimal candidates for vaginal rejuvenation.

Vaginal rejuvenation explained

At our practice, we use a laser technology called CO2RE® Intima. With this minimally invasive CO2 technology, we can address most of the concerns we listed above.

The CO2RE treatments are quick — only about 10 minutes — and we perform them right here in our offices. In many cases, you might need a series of treatments (2-3) for optimal results, which we space apart by several weeks. 

As you progress through your treatments and for several weeks afterward, your vaginal tissues will heal and strengthen, allowing you to get back to enjoying a healthy and active sex life.
