vConfidence is one of the leading authorities nationwide on vaginal health. If you suffer from dyspareunia, or painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness, our vConfidence Certified Doctors in Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ, have cutting-edge laser solutions to help treat this condition.

What is Dyspareunia?

Dyspareunia is vaginal dryness that can result in pain during intercourse. It is primarily caused by dryness in the vaginal wall. The underlying cause is most commonly found to be a lack of estrogen factors in the vulvovaginal region. These can sometimes occur in tandem with burning or itching, especially in women who are going through menopause or are post-menopausal. This is often an unavoidable consequence of aging, whereby the vaginal wall and the glands it contains atrophy and hormone levels decrease.

A skilled vConfidence physician in Phoenix or Scottsdale can positively identify dyspareunia by noting if there is a deficiency in new collagen growth, which is necessary for the vulvovaginal tissues to secrete moisture within the mucosal lining of the vagina.

How does vConfidence Treat Dyspareunia?

vConfidence Certified Doctors in Phoenix or Scottsdale are able to treat dyspareunia effectively. As the national leader in the treatment of dyspareunia, vConfidence uses the latest, cutting-edge fractional laser and RF-based treatments, restoring natural collagen growth and allowing the vaginal walls to return to a more youthful, supple state. vConfidence treatments achieve this through the proven method of neocollagenesis. This results in the restoration of normal hormone levels and the ability of the vaginal mucosal lining to naturally lubricate the surrounding tissues during intercourse. Peer-reviewed studies have shown the effectiveness of the Intima, Femilift™, Viveve and FemTouch™ lasers in completely restoring normal vaginal moistness, curing the underlying causes of dyspareunia.

How Many Treatments are Required?

A large number of patients see a complete resolution of symptoms in one treatment. But one of our vConfidence physicians may recommend up to three treatments, 30 days apart.

What are the Results?

As a treatment that is directed at the root cause of the problem, fractional CO2 laser and RF treatments are capable of completely restoring normal vaginal moistness, possibly eliminating the problem of dryness completely. This is not a palliative treatment it is curative. The new collagen growth is 100 percent natural, and as a result, it will restore natural vaginal moistness through the body’s own mechanisms. Rather than just treating the symptoms, this is an actual cure. The vast majority of patients in Phoenix and Scottsdale will see a complete reversal of symptoms after a complete treatment course.

What Does vConfidence Laser or RF Treatment Feel Like?

This is a non-surgical intervention. As a result, there is no pain whatsoever and none of the risks associated with any invasive surgery. Most patients describe the pulses of the laser as feeling like a faint vibration.

The most important thing is to realize that you don’t have to live with dyspareunia and its stifling consequences. vConfidence Certified Doctors in Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ, can help you return to a normal, active life, with painless, safe and effective treatments. Contact us today!
