As we age, our bodies experience many changes. One common change is hormonal, which can result in several unwanted symptoms, including vaginal atrophy. If you are experiencing vaginal dryness or burning, discomfort with intercourse, frequent urination, and more, our team can help. Learn more about vaginal atrophy and the top three ways to treat it.
Vaginal atrophy, also known as atrophic vaginitis, is the drying, thinning, and inflammation of the vaginal walls that may occur if the female body has less estrogen. This condition is very common in menopausal women and can cause many uncomfortable symptoms, including painful sexual intercourse and urinary symptoms. This condition may also be referred to as genitourinary syndrome of menopause by physicians, as it causes both vaginal and urinary symptoms.
If you are bothered by the symptoms of vaginal atrophy and are interested in correcting the issue, our team offers an array of possibilities, including vaginal hormone therapy, systemic hormone therapy, and vaginal rejuvenation.
Vaginal hormone therapy is an effective way to treat vaginal conditions with little to no risk of systemic absorption. It is available in many forms, such as cream, tablet, suppository, or ring. Vaginal estrogen applied daily to the vaginal tissue for two weeks has been shown to improve the health of the vagina. At Tideline Center for Health & Aesthetics, we will personalize your hormone therapy to help best benefit you.
Systemic hormone therapy works by sending hormones into the bloodstream so that they can travel through the body. It is available as a pill, injection, patch, spray, cream, or pellet that delivers the hormones through the skin. Systemic estrogen can be very beneficial for women experiencing menopause and vaginal atrophy.
At Tideline Center for Health & Aesthetics, we offer an array of vaginal rejuvenation treatment options, including the following.
ThermiVa: ThermiVa uses radiofrequency (RF) heating energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the tissues. This treatment is an effective solution for vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, mild urinary incontinence, and decreased vaginal sensitivity.
PRP: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses a patient’s own blood to regenerate vaginal tissue, improving vaginal dryness, sexual enjoyment, urinary leakage, and more.
O-Shot: The O-Shot uses the regenerative power of PRP to stimulate tissue growth to improve sexual pleasure and the health of your sexual organs.
