As you age, it’s not just wrinkles and dark spots you have to worry about. It may not be as visible, but your vagina and vulva go through natural changes throughout the years too. But don’t worry, there’s hope! Our sexual wellness doctors at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates have found that Intima® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation in Cincinnati is a great way to reverse signs of vaginal aging and help you feel younger inside and out.
How aging affects your vagina
It’s no secret that your body is going to change, and that includes your vagina. After puberty, there are three major stages of life that change how your vagina looks, feels, and stretches.
Stage One: Childbirth
Having your first child is a big deal for your body. Your pelvic muscles stretch, and your vagina may even tear. Many women feel as though their vaginas are looser and drier at times. Even though a woman’s body has incredible healing capabilities, some women notice permanent changes.
Stage Two: Perimenopause
Perimenopause is the 5-to-10-year period before menopause (usually starts around age 40). During this time, your body will start producing less estrogen. With less estrogen, the vagina won’t be as plump or moist as it was in your younger years. You may even start seeing some laxity and discoloration.
Stage Three: Menopause
Once you hit menopause, your vagina and clitoris may shrink. Vaginal walls will continue to get thinner and drier, though this does vary from person to person. For some women, vaginal atrophy can lead to painful sex.
What does Intima® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Treat?
Intima® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment that delivers controlled energy to the vagina and/or vulva tissue. As a result, cells produce more collagen, improving the tone, texture, and overall appearance of the external vulva!
Intima® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is the perfect solution for women who want to treat:
- Vaginal laxity (looseness)
- Vaginal atrophy (dryness )
- Urinary incontinence (leaking of urine)
- Vulvar pigmentation (darkening)
- Sagging of of the labia majora (outer vaginal lips)
- Lichen sclerosus
What’s the procedure like?
Well first off, Intima® Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is super quick! The procedure only takes about 15 minutes for an internal treatment and 30 minutes for an external treatment.
During your procedure, a provider will apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Then, laser energy is delivered to the vulva and/or vagina to kickstart collagen production, all with little to no discomfort!
Once the procedure is complete, you may feel some dryness or itching, but if you regularly apply Aquaphor, it can help ease that discomfort. You can even combine the procedure with an O-Shot® to maximize your results.
