Vaginal laxity occurs when tissues inside your vagina become permanently stretched. Laxity is often caused by vaginal delivery, medical conditions, and muscles that lose strength as you age.
Vaginal atrophy is a condition that results in inflammation and dryness in the vagina, and it develops due to low levels of estrogen.
Estrogen maintains the health of vaginal tissues. If you don’t have sufficient estrogen, your vaginal lining thins out, becomes dry, and loses strength and elasticity — creating vaginal atrophy.
Women frequently develop vaginal atrophy after menopause, but low estrogen can also occur after childbirth and due to cancer treatment.
Women with vaginal atrophy (also called atrophic vaginitis or genitourinary syndrome of menopause) experience symptoms such as:
Vaginal rejuvenation corrects laxity, restores vaginal tissues back to their healthy state, and alleviates symptoms of vaginal atrophy. Dr. Dupuy offers non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation with TempSure™, an advanced medical device that treats vaginal atrophy and laxity using radiofrequency energy.
Using a specialized handpiece, TempSure delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to tissues inside your vagina. The RF energy gently heats the tissues, which stimulates tissue regeneration by promoting collagen production and increasing blood flow.
As new collagen is synthesized, it replaces the old tissues. As a result, your vaginal wall tightens, and the tone and texture of your vaginal lining improve.
You may notice a difference shortly after treatment due to an immediate tightening effect of old collagen, but it takes time to produce new collagen, so optimal results appear gradually. You may continue to see changes for about six months following your treatment.
Many women hesitate to seek help for vaginal atrophy and laxity, but you don’t need to struggle with dryness, itching, and a poor sex life. Call or book an appointment online to learn more about vaginal rejuvenation.
