How Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Can Help With Menopause

Dr. Janice Alexander | 07/16/2021

Every woman will experience menopause once they reach a certain age. A decrease in reproductive hormones, like estrogen, can lead to a wide range of issues that impact your quality of life. Common symptoms include vaginal dryness, pain during sex, and urinary stress incontinence. Luckily, Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics Center provides laser vaginal rejuvenation to reduce your discomfort.

Laser rejuvenation works by carefully heating the vaginal tissue through advanced laser technology. This encourages new collagen growth and natural healing. If you live in the areas of Cedarburg, Mequon, Grafton, or Milwaukee, WI, our trained staff can perform a vaginal assessment and determine whether a laser procedure is right for you. Schedule a consultation with triple board-certified physician Dr. Janice Alexander to learn about this technology.

Do you have these menopause symptoms?

During menopause, estrogen levels slowly decline over time. The walls of the vagina become thin and dry, leading to loose vaginal tissue, skin irritation, and pain during sexual intercourse. You may be urinating more frequently or have a difficult time holding in urine when laughing or coughing. Laser rejuvenation is designed to restore the vaginal tissue, reduce dryness, treat urinary incontinence, and enhance your most intimate moments with your partner.

Why should I choose laser vaginal rejuvenation?

Sometimes women turn to invasive surgeries to treat various menopause symptoms. While vaginal surgery can be effective, it does require women to take an extended amount of time off from work and social events while their vaginal tissue heals. Potential side effects also include pain, bleeding, bruising, or scarring.

In contrast, laser vaginal rejuvenation does not require going under the knife. Instead, laser treatment encourages new collagen growth through gentle heating. This is what treats any menopause-related concerns in Cedarburg, Mequon, Grafton, and Milwaukee, WI. The side effects from treatment are also minimal when compared with surgery.

How does laser rejuvenation work?

Candidates for laser vaginal rejuvenation should review their health concerns with a team member at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics Center. Once you are qualified for treatment, we create a custom plan based on your menopause symptoms. Our staff begins by using an applicator on the exterior tissues. We may also insert the device carefully into the vagina as needed. Patients should not feel much discomfort during the process.

As we mentioned, you should not expect much downtime after your laser rejuvenation procedure. Our team can give you information about cleaning and caring for the treatment area, and when it is safe to have sexual intercourse again. For best results, we may recommend several follow-up sessions over the following 12 weeks. Most women notice their enhanced outcomes after their first two appointments.
