Feminine Revitalization Q & A

What causes vaginal dryness?

Reduced estrogen levels are the primary cause of dryness. Estrogen also maintains tissue elasticity. When elasticity is lost, some women experience vaginal atrophy, a loosening in the walls of the vagina. Combined with dryness, atrophy can lead to general discomfort and pain during intimacy. Conditions associated with low levels of estrogen include:

  • Menopause and perimenopause
  • Post-childbirth and breastfeeding
  • Removal of the ovaries
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Cancer therapy

What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy can cause pain or discomfort during intimacy, and also during daily life. Because the pH balance inside the vagina is affected by lack of moisture, dryness can lead to frequent yeast infections and, in some cases, trouble with urination. Signs and symptoms of vaginal dryness and/or atrophy include:

  • Soreness, itching, or burning
  • Painful intercourse
  • Bleeding after intercourse
  • Difficulty achieving orgasm
  • Vaginal discharge

What vaginal dryness treatments are available?

Treatments for vaginal dryness are not one-size-fits-all. You may find that only need more lubrication, or you may be frustrated by a combination of symptoms. At Ageless Aesthetics, your physician will help you select a treatment based on your concerns and a medical evaluation. Options include:

  • MonaLisa Touch®—a simple, in-office procedure that uses gentle laser therapy to stimulate collagen production in the vaginal wall. In most cases, patients experience some relief from dryness immediately and complete relief after the third treatment.
  • Votiva®—a radio-frequency treatment that tightens the vaginal muscles to reduce atrophy, while improving lubrication and sensation inside the vagina. Votiva can also be used to restore feeling and function to the external labia.
  • O-Shot®—a revolutionary technique in which your doctor draws your blood, then separates the platelet-rich plasma to inject into the labia, clitoris, and vulva. Growth factors in your plasma stimulate cell regrowth, restoring sensation and the ability to reach climax.  

Vaginal discomfort and loss of pleasure can take a toll on your mood and your relationships. If you need help with vaginal dryness or atrophy, the experienced physicians at Ageless Aesthetics can help. Contact us today for a private consultation.
