A woman's external genitalia and vagina change with certain events, like childbirth and also as we approach menopause. Aging, illness, childbirth, menopause, and other life events can alter the appearance and elasticity of your “private parts”, changing the way things look and feel.
At Physicians for Women in Madison, Wisconsin, our team of women’s health specialists offer fractionated CO2 laser vaginal revitalization to help restore elasticity, blood supply and moisture to tissues and without hormone therapies as well as a review of all other treatment options, including conventional and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
There are several reasons to consider vaginal revitalization:
As you age, your vaginal tissues lose their elasticity, meaning your vagna might feel “looser” than it did before. Laxity can also be caused by damage to the pelvic floor that reduces muscle control; a common occurrence associated with a vaginal birth.
Hormonal changes can lead to less lubrication being produced by your body, causing vaginal dryness, itching, and even abrading or tearing of the vaginal tissue during sex. Other causes of painful sex include medications that induce dryness and infection. The providers at Physicians for Women will examine you to determine and offer treatment options to remedy your condition.
The laxity issues may be significant enough that changes to vaginal appearance are visible. This can also lead to painful sex, vaginal bleeding and conditions that make urination and bowel movements difficult.
Around one out of every three women has one or more episodes of stress incontinence in their lifetime. The risks for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are higher if you’ve gone through childbirth or suffered an injury to your lower back. Weakening of the pelvic floor at the level of the urethra can mean any small stress allows urine to escape.
Common symptoms of stress urinary incontinence include urinating — a little or a lot — when you laugh, sneeze, cough, jump, bend over, squat, lift something heavy, or have sex. This can be embarrassing and lead to lack of self-confidence and anxiety over accidents.
Physicians for Women provides an advanced fractionated CO2 pixel laser treatment to revitalize and strengthen your vaginal tissues. FemiLift treatment can improve the laxity of your vagina, improve blood flow and lubrication, and reduce stress urinary incontinence.
If you’ve had any of the above concerns about your vagina, or have any other potential issues or questions, vaginal revitalization with FemiLift could be right for you. We’re here to help you feel confident and self-assured, no matter what stage of life you’re in.
