Postmenopausal Vulvovaginal Atrophy (Laser Resurfacing)
The decrease in oestrogen during menopause leads to weakening of the vaginal walls with subsequent loss of secretion that can in turn cause changes, which deeply condition female sexuality:
- Vaginal atrophy.
- Vaginal dryness.
- Loss of elasticity.
- Diminished compression capacity.
Changes during menopause can affect a woman's sex life
How does menopause affect a woman's sex life?
The vaginal walls become thinner, losing elasticity and resistance to trauma, which affect sex life. A minimally invasive and effective therapy that has become essential at IML for our patients.
During the excitement stage, muscular laxity can occur in women, coupled with an absence of tumescence in the external genitalia and no vaginal lubrication. This reduces sensitivity both in the woman and her partner. The possibilities of penetration being painful also increase as well as the risk of atrophic vulvovaginitis and urinary incontinence.
Women in pre or post menopause are familiar with the problems due to the their genital ageing and are increasingly consulting with their gynaecologists so they can keep up a normal sex life. The new IML vulvovaginal rejuvenation method restores tissue vitality and recovers their tightness, tumescence and ability to secrete, reclaiming the woman's ability to enjoy sex.
Vaginal atrophy laser treatment
Maintenance treatment should be conducted every two years.
The highest demand for corrective-reconstruction treatments is during menopause, given that there is a close relationship between the aesthetic result and the functional improvement that is so important to a woman's well-being.
