Hormones are key to reproductive health in each part of a woman’s life. They are in charge of controlling month to month menstrual periods, fertility, menopause, and sexual desire. The essential hormones that influence your menstrual cycle and fertility are delivered by specific glands in the brain and by your ovaries. The ovaries are also in charge of the creation of estrogen and progesterone; both of these hormones contribute to preparing the female body for pregnancy.
Hormonal changes can be brought on by a wide assortment of variables, but every woman will experience hormonal fluctuations during menopause. Besides influencing your emotional well being, these hormonal changes also significantly affect the vagina.
How Do Fluctuating Hormones Affect The Vagina?
The decrease of estrogen during menopause prompts vaginal dryness, thinner vaginal walls and a decreased amount of elasticity. This group of symptoms are also known as vaginal atrophy. Once this happens, uncomfortable side effects can occur. For example, painful intercourse, recurrent infections and a dreary sex life. While hormonal changes are just part of getting older, there is now an effortless, compelling solution for rejuvenating the vagina to its pre-menopausal state.
Vaginal rejuvenation is not only appealing for those who are approaching menopause, it is also a powerful method of treating different feminine concerns among younger women. There is a gentle, safe and precise laser treatment created by Alma lasers that is capable of restoring the vagina to its youthful state in as few as three, 30 minute treatments.
The FemiLift laser treatment utilizes CO2 fractional laser technology to focus on treating specific zones of the vagina with upmost precision. The profound thermal heating of the vaginal walls instigates the production of collagen, which results in flexibility, more natural lubrication and no more recurrent infections or vaginal dryness.
The procedure is performed in office and it is virtually pain free, with no anesthesia or downtime required. The results can last for as long as five years, during which time you can enjoy living a vibrant lifestyle, free from the discomfort of vaginal atrophy.
