Vaginal Dryness Treatment in Phoenix, AZ
Nuvell Clinics is a women’s health center that specializes in treatments for vaginal dryness for women in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas of Arizona. Vaginal dryness is most common during menopause, but it can happen at any age.
What is Vaginal Dryness?
Your body produces natural lubrication in the vaginal area to keep the tissues healthy and to help with intercourse. Once a woman reaches menopause, vaginal lubrication levels start to decline, and this can lead to vaginal dryness.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
Moisture in the vaginal area is the product of glands that are located at the cervix. The secretion from the glands travels down the vaginal canal to remove any dead skin cells and clean the tissues. Vaginal lubrication also helps to protect you from infections. When you become sexually excited, two additional glands lubricate the vaginal opening to help with penetration.
Vaginal dryness may be an indication of physical ailments, as stress and other factors may produce little to no lubrication. Medical conditions and treatments that may cause vaginal dryness are:
- Low estrogen
What Are the Symptoms of Vaginal Dryness?
Low lubrication levels in the vaginal canal increases your risks for infections, as well as pain during intercourse, also known as dyspareunia.
What Are the Options for Dyspareunia Treatment?
Discomfort during intercourse may be caused by several factors. The most common is when the vaginal lining thins. Because the tissues are thinner, lubrication is key to remaining comfortable during intercourse. Our FemiLift™ treatments stimulate cell development to thicken the tissues and may increase natural lubrication.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Vaginal Dryness?
- Improves lubrication
- Less discomfort during sex
- May reduce risk of infections
- No downtime
How Does Treatment for Vaginal Dryness Help?
We recommend FemiLift™ for treating cases of vaginal dryness. The procedure involves gently inserting a handpiece into the vaginal opening and applying CO2 laser energy to remove damaged tissue and stimulate new tissue development.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment for Vaginal Dryness?
You may experience a slight warming sensation as the laser energy is applied to heat the tissues. The procedure is so comfortable that most of our patients do not require anesthesia and are able to relax during the treatment.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment for Vaginal Dryness?
The thermal energy of the laser may cause the tissues to swell slightly, so you may see some changes in your symptoms right away. Over the following weeks, your body produces new cells in the vaginal canal, and this further addresses your symptoms.
Is Treatment for Vaginal Dryness Right for Me?
If you experience dryness, pain during intercourse, frequent infections and other signs of vaginal dryness, you may be a good candidate for treatment with FemiLift™.
