Vaginal Dryness Q & A

What causes vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness often develops due to a decline in estrogen. Estrogen is a reproductive hormone that plays a role in creating strong, flexible vaginal tissue and supplying lubrication to keep tissues healthy.

Women experience estrogen loss during their transition to menopause, the end of your child-bearing years. Estrogen levels can begin fluctuating 10 years before your monthly menstrual cycle stops.

Other causes of vaginal dryness can include:

  • Smoking
  • Douching
  • Immune disorders
  • Use of certain medications

You might also experience vaginal dryness during pregnancy and after childbirth due to hormone fluctuations.

When should I seek medical attention for vaginal dryness?

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa if you have vaginal dryness, irritation, or pain you can’t treat on your own. You should also book an appointment if you experience pain with sex because of a lack of lubrication.

The team offers comprehensive exams and lab work to identify what’s causing vaginal dryness and can customize a care plan to provide fast and long-lasting symptom relief. 

How is vaginal dryness treated?

Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa offers several strategies to ease the pain and irritation of vaginal dryness, including:

BioTE® bioidentical hormones

BioTE bioidentical hormones are similar to the hormones your body makes naturally. A tiny hormone pellet goes under the surface of your skin and delivers a steady supply of hormones into your body. 

Supplementing with bioidentical hormones balances your hormone levels and increases your natural lubrication to ease the irritation of vaginal dryness.

MonaLisa Touch laser therapy

MonaLisa Touch is a nonsurgical treatment that uses laser energy to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. The technology delivers laser energy into the tissues in your vaginal canal to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and increase your body’s production of elastin and collagen, which promote healthy, flexible skin.

This increase in circulation and beneficial proteins rehydrates and plumps vaginal tissue to relieve irritation. Some women notice an improvement in their symptoms soon after treatment. However, it can take several weeks for enough collagen to grow to see the full benefit of your treatment.

Treatment with MonaLisa Touch can also treat mild to moderate bladder control issues like urinary incontinence by strengthening the tissues that hold your bladder in place.

You don’t have to live with the irritation and pain vaginal dryness causes. Call Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa to schedule an appointment or book a consultation online.
