WHAT IS womens health?
womens health
As we age and go through major life changes such as pregnancy and menopause our bodies change as well. These changes can have a negative impact on our self-confidence and can affect our general heath. Our non-invasive treatments can help improve overall health, gain confidence and increase comfort in yourself.
COMMON QUESTIONS
SKIN LIGHTENING FOR SENSITIVE AREAS:
Hormonal changes often experienced in pregnancy or menopause can alter our skin color, creating darker areas of pigment in underarms, areolas (nipple area), and on the labia (exterior vagina). These pigment changes are normal, however, these areas can be safely lightened and whitened with laser treatment. Our specifically designed sensitive area laser treatment, will help to remove dark pigment from the skin, leaving the skin lighter and whiter in appearance.
HPV VACCINE:
HPV stands for human papillomavirus. It’s the most common sexually transmitted infection. HPV is usually harmless and goes away by itself, but some types can lead to cancer. There is no cure for HPV, but you can prevent getting HPV or giving it to someone else by getting the vaccine. To ensure complete immunity a series of 3 injections is required at day 1, 2months and 6 months.
VAGINAL REJUVENATION:
Vaginal relaxation syndrome and incontinence are common concerns that are not often talked about. As we age and lose collagen, our muscles lose their strength and ability to keep the vaginal muscle walls contracted. This loss of elasticity of the vaginal wall and bladder muscle can lead to decreased sexual sensation and bladder leakage.
Most often bladder leakage is experienced when added pressure is placed on the pelvic area, such as when running or jumping. Women may feel slight or even full bladder loss.
Decreased sexual sensation is often accompanied by vaginal dryness and lack of sensitivity.
In previous years the solutions to these issues would include surgery to repair the bladder wall and hormone supplements to induce vaginal lubrication. Fortunately, now we have non-invasive laser treatments to stimulate your body to create collagen and strengthen muscle tone again.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After reviewing your health history, the practitioner will cleanse the area, then a small laser device will be introduced into the canal, this will give the feeling of a bit of pressure. The practitioner will set the laser to specific parameters to treat your concerns. You will begin to feel warm sensation when the treatment begins. After treating the interior of the vagina, the technician will treat the exterior. A similar warm sensation will be felt. The complete treatment will only take about 20 minutes. In the upcoming weeks to months your body will now begin to form new collagen which will tighten the vaginal canal and strengthen the bladder muscle.
DOES IT HURT?
No, many women will feel pressure or warmth during the treatment. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the exterior of the vagina pre-treatment to ensure comfort.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, your safety is our greatest concern. Prior to vaginal rejuvenation treatment a general health checkup should be scheduled with your family doctor to ensure normal pap test results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
This will depend on the reason for treatment and the amount of laxity and/ or decreased muscle tone. Most commonly women who have had children will require 3 treatments at 1 month apart, and women without children will require 2 treatments.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
Results are expected to last 1 to 2 years. To maintain results, it is suggested to do a touch up treatment annually.
WHAT ABOUT POST CARE?
Following treatment, you may experience a feeling of fullness in the pelvic area and minor spotting/ bleeding. These issues will resolve without intervention within a couple of days. It is suggested to abstain from intercourse and immersing in water/ baths for 10 days post treatment. Vigorous exercise should also be avoided for 10 days. If you get normal periods avoid tampons on your next cycle, and only use pads. These directions will ensure proper healing and best results.
