If you are suffering from dyspareunia, a vConfidence Certified Doctor in Denver can provide treatment for you. In fact, one of our specially trained doctors at vConfidence can provide a long-lasting solution to your dyspareunia with a non-invasive, 15-minute procedure.
What is Dyspareunia?
Dyspareunia is defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. The pain can primarily be on the external surface of the genitalia, or deeper in the pelvis upon deep pressure against the cervix. It can also affect a small portion of the vulva or vagina or be felt all over the surface. Simply put, dyspareunia is a condition that leads to pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse.
Dyspareunia Symptoms and Diagnosis
Symptoms of dyspareunia are vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Dr. Tess Mauricio discusses that dyspareunia affects many of her patients, especially those after menopause. Even after hormonal replacement therapy, women suffer extreme vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Dr. Mauricio expresses that the most common cause of this vaginal dryness often include inadequate collagen growth in the vaginal lining tissues.
How Does vConfidence Treat Dyspareunia?
The vConfidence procedure restores that area, restoring the tissues and glands and leading to a solution for the dryness. In a 15-minute procedure using the latest fractional CO2 laser and RF-based technology, neocollagenesis, or new collagen growth, causes the regrowth of a thicker and more youthful vaginal lining, which in turn brings a continuous flow of naturally-occurring lubrication to the mucosal lining of the vaginal wall. For many menopausal and post-menopausal women, where reduced estrogen levels have led to diminished collagen production and vaginal dryness and dyspareunia, the very impressive results of the vConfidence procedure using the Intima, Femilift™, Viveve®, and FemTouch™ lasers can work wonders to treat dyspareunia.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
During your consultation, your vConfidence Certified Doctor will develop an appropriate treatment plan based on your needs. Many women achieve excellent results in a single treatment, with a follow-up procedure in 30 days. In most cases, your physician may recommend that you schedule three treatments 30 days apart for optimal results.
How Much Does Dyspareunia Treatment Cost?
Treatment costs vary based on specific needs, but typically range between $975- $1,175 per treatment. During your consultation, your vConfidence Certified Doctor will discuss the range of treatment options available. Together you can form a treatment plan that meets your needs, desires, and goals. vConfidence also offers convenient financing options so that every woman is empowered to enjoy life.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
No, there is no downtime. For most women in today’s fast-paced world, downtime from surgery is not a viable option. vConfidence is committed to providing non-invasive vaginal solutions that solve challenging issues like dyspareunia.
What Are The Results?
vConfidence addresses the root of the problem of dyspareunia, the vaginal dryness that can make sexual intercourse painful. We do this with pain-free fractional CO2 laser or RF treatments that trigger the regenerative growth of new collagen.
With treatment, the mucosal lining of the vagina will begin to generate natural lubrication as the skin and muscular lining is rejuvenated. Most patients experience symptom relief within the first week. The full effects will be felt after a complete course of treatment.
How Does vConfidence Laser or RF Treatment Feel?
vConfidence treatments are pain-free, with no surgery or needles. It is a series of gentle pulses fired inside of the vagina. There is no pain associated with the treatment itself. Most patients describe the pulses as feeling like a slight vibration.
- Instructions Before Treatment: The average treatment typically takes under 15 minutes. You will be given any specific pre-treatment instructions beforehand. Following your check-in, your vital signs will be taken. A sterile “insertion ring,” a circular device that allows the laser handpiece to be inserted and moved without rubbing against sensitive skin, is placed into the vaginal opening. Once inserted, the laser is activated, moved, then re-activated again in a quick procedure that allows the entire vaginal area to been treated. No pain, surgery, needles, recovery time or inconvenience to you.
- Instructions After Treatment: Your vConfidence Certified Doctor will provide you with detailed post-procedure instructions and usually immediately following your procedure you are able to return to your regular activities.
