Vaginal dryness is a very common symptom of menopause. At the onset of menopause, women can experience a range of bodily changes. When these changes begin to disrupt everyday life or intimacy, seeking management options is a great idea. At Skin MD, we can provide you with effective treatments to improve your menopause symptoms.
We offer Hormone Replacement Therapy and the CO2RE Intima fractional rejuvenation for the treatment of vaginal issues. These options can be used in combination to improve your hormone balance and vaginal skin. To learn more, we welcome you to schedule a free consultation at a Skin MD office near you.
How Does Vaginal Dryness Develop?
Vaginal dryness and dry vaginal skin are mainly the cause of decreased estrogen levels. Estrogen is an important hormone that begins to decline after menopause. The amount of estrogen in your body can also be impacted by certain lifestyle choices. For example, rigorous exercise, smoking, and having children can all contribute to lowered estrogen production. The good news is that the effects of low estrogen can be treated without surgery.
What Are the Signs?
Vaginal dryness is most apparent right before sex. While dryness is troubling in and of itself, it can also be accompanied by urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, uncomfortable itching, and vaginal laxity. The extent of your symptoms depends on the particular cause of your problem. Women who have had multiple pregnancies may experience more severe symptoms than those who have low estrogen due to lifestyle choices.
How to Ease Vaginal Dryness
Our Hormone Replacement Therapy treatment can increase estrogen levels and improve your hormonal balance. Treatments are simple and involve the insertion of a small pellet under the skin. For external rejuvenation, we also provide the CO2RE Intima laser treatment. This device uses Fractional Rejuvenation & Resurfacing technology to stimulate healing in your body. After the procedure, your skin becomes tighter and more youthful. To learn more about these options, schedule a free consultation at a Skin MD office near you.
