Almost every area of a woman’s body can undergo dramatic changes throughout her life — including in her vaginal health. Between childbirth, menopause, and aging, the toll on your vaginal tissues can be significant, leaving you with a wide range of problems that include laxity, dryness, and even incontinence.
To fight back against these unwanted changes, Dr. Manuel Lopez and the team here at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, offer a highly advanced vaginal rejuvenation technology called CO2RE® Intima to residents of the San Antonio, Texas, area.
If you’re wondering whether you may benefit from vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening, read on.
Behind declining vaginal health
As we mentioned in the opening paragraph, there are many reasons why your vaginal health may decline or why the appearance of your genitalia can change.
For example, if you’ve been through vaginal childbirth, you understand all too well the extreme pressures that are placed on your vaginal tissues. While your body can be very good about bouncing back after delivery, many women are left with unwelcome changes in their vaginal health, such as lax genitalia, which can be very uncomfortable (think swimsuits).
Another problem occurs as you age and your vaginal tissues gradually lose structural support, namely collagen. While this loss occurs gradually as you move from your 30s into your 40s, your collagen production drops precipitously once you pass through menopause and your body no longer produces enough estrogen.
As a result, you may be left with a host of issues that include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Desensitization in your vaginal tissues
- Thinning vaginal walls, which can lead to painful sex
Women who undergo a hysterectomy, which initiates menopause, are also prone to these symptoms, no matter their age.
Vaginal rejuvenation through technology
To address the many changes that can occur to your vaginal health as you journey through life, we’ve equipped ourselves with an exciting women’s intimate wellness technology called CO2RE Intima.
With this FDA-cleared laser system, we create a response called neocollagenesis, which is the term we use to describe initiating fibroblasts that rebuild the structural support in your tissues.
With CO2RE Intima, we can encourage:
- Firmer external tissues, such as your labia and vulva
- Vaginal lubrication
- Increased sensation
- More bladder support
- Healthier vaginal walls
The treatments take us only minutes, and there’s no downtime afterward.
In most cases, you will benefit from a series of CO2RE Intima treatments, typically three, which we space apart by three weeks. As you progress through your vaginal rejuvenation treatments, you’ll realize gradual improvements as your body responds to the laser energy and creates more collagen.
If you feel you can benefit from vaginal rejuvenation or you have more questions about our CO2RE Intima technology, contact one of our offices in the San Antonio area, including Alamo Heights, Stone Oak, New Braunfels, and Boerne, Texas, to schedule an appointment.
