Our vConfidence Certified Doctors in Austin are authorities on vaginal health. We offer non-invasive treatments to address dyspareunia or vaginal dryness that causes pain during sexual intercourse.

What Is Dyspareunia?

Dyspareunia is pain during sex caused by dryness in the vaginal wall. The condition is usually caused by reduced estrogen production in the vulvovaginal region, which often occurs during or after menopause. Other symptoms of a decline in estrogen production include itching and burning. The decrease in collagen causes the vaginal tissue and glands to atrophy.

The body needs collagen for the vaginal walls to moisten. Treatment for dyspareunia usually involves stimulating collagen production, which rids the cause of the dryness. vConfidence Certified Doctors in Austin provide treatment for dyspareunia.

How Does vConfidence Treat Dyspareunia?

Our specialists at vConfidence in Austin use fractional CO2 lasers and radio frequency technology to treat dyspareunia and other issues. We use Intima, Femilift™, Viveve, and FemTouch™ lasers to restore vaginal tissue and glands that have atrophied. Our treatment encourages natural collagen production in the body, which allows your body to regrow a thicker, healthier vaginal lining. This will help the mucosal lining of your vagina become naturally lubricated, ending the problem of painful intercourse.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

You’ll likely notice results after your first treatment, and you may be happy with the results of your first vConfidence visit in Austin. However, most women choose to have multiple treatments. You and your physician can schedule three treatments, one month apart. This will help you achieve the best results.

What Are the Results?

We address the cause of dyspareunia, which is a lack of collagen production. After your treatment, your vagina’s mucosal lining should start generating natural lubrication. Most women notice these results in just a week, but it takes a full course of treatment to experience the complete effects.

How Does vConfidence Laser or RF Treatment Feel?

Our treatment is completely non-invasive, non-surgical, and pain-free. vConfidence Certified Doctors in Austin use gentle lasers that fire a series of pulses. These pulses might feel a slight vibration, but you won’t feel any pain.

Dyspareunia can take a toll on your relationships and your confidence. However, this condition isn’t unsolvable. vConfidence treatment can improve vaginal dryness and put an end to painful intercourse. If you have dyspareunia and you want a solution to vaginal dryness, contact a vConfidence doctor in Austin to discuss our CO2 laser and RF treatments.
