As a woman ages, her body produces less and less estrogen. As a result, her skin produces less collagen and loses its elasticity, which results in wrinkles and sagging skin. The decline in estrogen also affects a woman’s bladder, vagina, and urethra. The tissues within these organs become thinner and dryer, and that change results in such problems as urinary incontinence, painful intercourse, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections, among many other issues. Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation treatments are readily available at our office in Tucson.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a group of treatments and therapies designed to correct the problems associated with an aging vagina. These treatments can be used to:
• Reduce urinary incontinence
• Tighten the vagina, labia, and vulva
• Reduce pain during intercourse
• Strengthen the vagina’s muscles
• Increase vaginal moisture
Vaginal rejuvenation in Tucson can include any of a number of treatments, including ThermiVa®, Mona Lisa Touch, CO2 laser/radiofrequency treatments, and PRP therapy.
What is CO2 Laser Treatment?
This is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to heat the tissues and, thus, stimulate the production of collagen and increase blood flow to the treatment site. The energy also causes existing collagen to tighten and, thus, immediately reduces laxity in the tissues.
What Does PRP Therapy Involve?
This is another non-surgical form of vaginal rejuvenation that involves using the patient’s own blood, making it a natural option. The blood is used to create the PRP solution, which is then skillfully injected into the vaginal tissue. This procedure is commonly referred to as the O-Shot.
