As you age or your body goes through a variety of changes, you may quickly discover that you no longer feel as feminine and confident in who you are as a woman as you once did. Part of the reason for this could be the many changes that occur in your vagina from aging, childbirth and other hormonal changes. An aging vagina often becomes drier than usual, which can make sexual intercourse uncomfortable. Vaginal laxity is another common complaint as the muscles begin to weaken and sag. Outside the vagina, tissue changes occur, mainly as tissues begin to sag. However, vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that may be able to help you feel your best again!
Vaginal rejuvenation at Quench Wellness in Chicago, IL can restore much of the youthfulness of these areas and can help you feel more like yourself again. There are many treatments for vaginal laxity, atrophy and dryness available today, but we are proud to offer a non-invasive treatment that is fast, convenient and really works.
At Quench Wellness, we use the diVa hybrid fractional laser by Sciton to treat the inner and outer vaginal tissues. This fractional laser is gentle and quick and does not leave uncomfortable side effects behind it. In fact, many of our patients have this treatment performed without any kind of anesthetic although some choose local anesthetic for the greatest comfort.
A fractional laser works by treating only a small percentage of the tissues in the area. Rather than targeting all of the tissues in the area and leaving behind redness or bruising, we treat tiny areas but ensure that this is enough to leave behind lasting changes. Plus, the diVa fractional laser combines laser heat with gentle pulses of energy to target tissues deep beneath the surface of the vagina. This combination of treatment modalities helps to ensure that collagen and elastin deep in the vaginal walls become healthier and stronger. In addition, the heat helps to increase blood flow in the area, which improve muscle strength and tissue health.
Our vaginal rejuvenation treatments can improve vaginal tissue health by increasing muscular strength in the area, decreasing laxity and improving tissue hydration. This can make sexual intercourse more enjoyable and can help you feel more like yourself once again.
While one treatment with the diVa fractional laser can produce some great results, we typically recommend around three treatments for most of our patients for the best results. Treatments should be spread several weeks apart to allow tissues to heal and change between appointments. There is no need to worry about lengthy treatment times or downtimes, however. A typical treatment takes only a few minutes, and you can go about your day as usual as soon as the treatment is completed. Once your main course of treatment is completed, you may still want to get follow-up treatments from time to time to keep up your good results
We aim to help women just like you feel better about themselves every day with treatments like vaginal rejuvenation. Call us today at Quench Wellness to schedule your consultation at our office in Chicago, IL.
