As women age, they often experience vaginal atrophy. This condition is marked by more fragile vaginal walls, due to a decrease of estrogen in the body. It most commonly occurs following menopause, but in some cases it can occur earlier. Since this condition affects a woman’s sexual and urinary abilities, it is commonly referred to as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). To combat these unpleasant symptoms, urologists at Ogden Clinic use CO2RE laser technology to provide vaginal rejuvenation to women across Utah.
Depending on the severity of the GSM, women may experience the following vaginal and urinary symptoms:
GSM is the result of decreased estrogen in the body which can be caused by menopause, perimenopause, surgical menopause, following radiation and chemotherapy, and as a result of hormonal treatments for breast cancer. Women who smoke, have never had a vaginal birth, and women who do not have any kind of sexual activity are at an increased risk for GSM.
To treat women experiencing GSM, Ogden Clinic offers vaginal rejuvenation using CO2RE laser technology. This non-surgical treatment option restores vaginal tissue tone and elasticity, reduces stress incontinence, increases vaginal lubrication, and improves appearance. CO2RE laser technology also reduces signs of childbirth and aging, increases vaginal flexibility, and treats dryness, itching, and pain.
Vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE laser technology is a great option for many women as it is a safe, simple, and quick in-office procedure. Treatments are non-surgical, require no incisions, and only last 10-15 minutes. CO2RE laser technology is also virtually painless, with patients reporting mild to no discomfort during the procedure.
With age, women are bound to experience uncomfortable vaginal and urinary symptoms. To combat these discomforts, the urologists at Ogden Clinic offer vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE laser technology at offices across northern Utah.
