Vaginal problems are often neglected, but can have a significant impact on quality of life. Vaginal dryness and burning are a result of atrophic vaginitis, which is often not spoken about because many clients consider it a natural consequence of aging, menopause and after childbirth. Living with dryness does not have to be part of your life.
One after-effect of atrophic vaginitis is dyspareunia – pain during sexual intercourse. An atrophic vagina is thin, dry, fragile, lacks elasticity and unlubricated. This causes pain during sexual intercourse which can lead to a lack of sexual desire and uneasy feelings during intimate moments possibly causing negative consequences in a relationship. Understanding the cause of the pain and using the latest generation laser treatment, this problem can be treated in a safe and painless way.
CORE Intima for vaginal dryness is an in-office, non-surgical treatment that utilizes a CO2 laser system to deliver controlled energy to the vaginal tissue. The laser energy is designed to revitalize the vaginal tissue cells so they increase collagen production, a critical component in vaginal cell health. By gently acting on tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane. The laser treatment will help with laxity, burning, itching and urinary stress incontinence too.
The vaginal treatment is virtually pain-free, with only some clients reporting mild discomfort the first time the probe is inserted in the vaginal canal. Some clients say it’s feels like a pap test! Initially, three treatments are recommended, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, followed by a yearly maintenance treatment. Many clients begin to notice improvement following the first session. Patients should avoid sexual activity for a few days following the procedure, but most people can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime. This laser is safe for all skin types.
