Our doctors at vConfidence are trustworthy vaginal health experts. They provide noninvasive, safe laser procedures to treat a variety of conditions, including dyspareunia.
What Is Dyspareunia?
Dyspareunia is vaginal dryness that causes discomfort during sexual intercourse. It is usually caused by reduced estrogen factors in the vagina, and it sometimes leads to other symptoms like itching or burning. This often occurs during or after menopause because vaginal tissue and glands atrophy as we age. The hormonal changes that occur during menopause can also cause dryness in the vagina or pain during sexual intercourse.
Dyspareunia and vaginal dryness can also be caused by a deficiency of collagen growth. The vulvovaginal tissue needs collagen for the vagina’s mucosal lining to remain moisturized.
How Does vConfidence Treat Dyspareunia?
Treatment from vConfidence can help you enjoy your sex life again. Our doctors use the latest technology, including fractional CO2 lasers and RF-based technology, to treat dyspareunia. Because vaginal dryness is often associated with a deficiency of collagen growth, our treatments focus on restoring the atrophied vaginal tissue and glands. This can help to reduce or eliminate vaginal dryness.
vConfidence’s treatments can also help with neocollagenesis, or new collagen growth. This promotes the regrowth of a thicker vaginal lining, which helps create natural lubrication for the vaginal walls. Our doctors at vConfidence use Intima, FemiLift™, Viveve™, and FemTouch™ lasers to treat dyspareunia.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Many patients are happy with their results after just one treatment. However, most doctors recommend receiving three treatments, 30 days apart. This will help you achieve optimal and long-lasting results.
What Are the Results?
Our doctors use CO2 lasers and RF treatments to address the cause of dyspareunia. The treatment helps the vagina’s mucosal lining to create natural lubrication by rejuvenating the skin and muscular lining. Most patients who receive the treatment notice the results within just one week. Full symptom relief can be felt after a complete course of three treatments.
How Does vConfidence Laser or RV Treatment Feel?
This procedure is pain-free and requires no surgery or needles. You will probably feel a series of small pulses in your vagina during the treatment, but this should not be painful. Most patients report that the pulses feel like a vibration.
