Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What causes vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is the name for the inflammation, thinning, and drying of the vaginal tissue caused by declining estrogen levels as women age. Childbirth and menopause also contribute to vaginal laxity, stretching out, and weakening the associated tissues and muscles.
The vaginal condition sometimes includes accompanying symptoms such as:
- Painful intercourse
- Decreased natural lubrication
- Burning, itching, and discharge
- Urinary incontinence
- Burning and urgency with urination
- Frequent urinary tract infections
What treatments are available for vaginal atrophy?
Dr. Singleton can help ease these uncomfortable symptoms with topical and hormonal therapies and radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation.
Topical and hormonal therapies
Dr. Singleton may recommend trying lubricants and vaginal moisturizers to ease your discomfort before deferring to more progressive therapies. Hormonal estrogen therapy may also reverse some of the effects of estrogen loss, such as decreased lubrication.
Radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation
The Ageless Institute offers cutting-edge nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation. The Tempsure™ Vitalia system uses radiofrequency (RF) to heat the tissues inside the vagina.
How does radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation work?
Dr. Singleton inserts a thin probe into your vagina, which emits the RF energy. He treats the vaginal tissues in sections, a process that takes less than an hour to perform.
You may need two to three subsequent sessions spaced a month apart and occasional follow-up sessions to make the most difference.
The RF heat stimulates collagen and elastin production and increases blood circulation to the area. The therapy revitalizes the vaginal tissues, leading to tightness, lubrication, and increased nerve sensitivity.
What are the benefits of radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation?
RF vaginal rejuvenation helps alleviate the effects of vaginal atrophy and improve your intimate health. Heightened nerve sensitivity and lubrication, for example, tend to enhance sexual pleasure and reduce urinary discomforts.
The procedure stimulates the body’s own natural tissue-building mechanisms without introducing hormones or requiring surgery. It’s a very safe alternative to other vaginal rejuvenation options and doesn’t interfere with hormone levels.
The treatment accomplishes all of that in under an hour with no downtime necessary. You should feel no more than a warming effect during the procedure and no adverse side effects afterward, so you can return to your regular activities straight from the office.
Although your intimate health may be a difficult subject to bring up, it’s much easier to discuss with a well-practiced provider like Dr. Singleton. Call the number listed or click the “book now” button to explore your RF vaginal rejuvenation options.
