The human body goes through many changes throughout its lifetime, but the female reproductive system is one of the most adaptable. It changes throughout puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, and eventually menopause. However, not all of these changes are enjoyable, and they can have a serious impact on your sexual wellness.
Radiance Wellness MediSpa, with locations in Southlake, Granbury, and Arlington, Texas, has an expert team led by Dr. Carrie L. Morris. While poor vaginal health has long been swept under the rug, treatments exist for conditions like vagina atrophy. Dr. Morris wants to help patients with vaginal laxity and dryness, so we offer FemTouch™, an innovative laser system that can improve vaginal health.
Many women experience vaginal atrophy due to hormonal imbalance. As you begin entering menopause, your body produces less estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are responsible for regulating nearly every aspect of your reproductive system, including your vaginal health.
When your hormone levels drop, so does your collagen production. Collagen and elastin are the proteins that keep your skin and vaginal tissue supple and strong. Your reproductive system maintains your vaginal walls to ensure that you’re always ready to deliver a child. Once you enter menopause, your body begins to slow down.
Without these proteins, you might experience vaginal atrophy. This is the most common cause of discomfort, dryness, and pain among menopausal women.
Vaginal atrophy occurs when the vaginal walls begin to thin and weaken. This leads to the following symptoms:
Many women resort to creams and hormone therapy to seek relief from vaginal atrophy. However, those aren’t your only options.
FemTouch is an innovative solution that uses laser energy to rejuvenate your vaginal tissues. It works by inducing a healing response, which leads to increased blood flow and collagen production. It’s completely noninvasive and doesn’t interfere with any other aspect of your health.
If you have concerns about undergoing hormone replacement, FemTouch can provide a simple alternative solution. Dr. Morris will go over the entire procedure with you to make sure you’re confident and comfortable before proceeding with your treatment.
FemTouch laser therapy is gentle and brief. There are no injections, significant side effects, or downtime. It can take a few treatments to see results, but every session is a step closer to your desired goal. Once you’ve finished your FemTouch course, you can return on an annual basis for maintenance sessions.
