Vaginal Dryness Q & A

by Dr. Jamie Lipeles

What causes vaginal dryness?

The most common cause of vaginal dryness is a drop in production of the  hormone estrogen that accompanies menopause. Vaginal dryness can also occur after childbirth, during breastfeeding, and is a common side effect of chemotherapy.

How does the FemiLift CO2 laser remedy vaginal dryness?

This revolutionary CO2 laser offers a long-term solution that actually restores a woman’s natural ability to produce moisture, thereby reducing vaginal dryness, itching, and discomfort or pain during sexual intercourse. FemiLift treatment is a quick and pain-free office procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime. As seen on TV’s “The Doctors,” the procedure takes only 30 minutes. A small, thin probe is inserted into the vaginal canal . It uses thermal heat to improve blood circulation and stimulate collagen production, which promotes thickening and tightening of the vaginal wall tissues and increases elasticity and moisture production. The laser can also be used to shrink the external labia tissue for a more youthful appearance. Most women enjoy immediate improvement but undergo two to three treatments for optimal benefits.

Do I need to be nearing or post menopause to benefit from CO2 laser treatment?

Not at all. In fact, many women who seek CO2 laser treatment at Marina OB/GYN are in their 30s and 40s. Anyone who experiences vaginal dryness and needs to use a lubricant during sex can benefit from this procedure. In addition to improving moisture production, CO2 laser treatment helps with vaginal laxity and stress incontinence that can occur as the result of pregnancy, vaginal birth or excessive weight loss at any age.

What sets Dr. Lipeles’ treatment for vaginal dryness apart?

As with any medical procedure, it’s imperative to seek a credentialed professional with extensive experience in the specific treatment being sought. Dr. Lipeles’ has performed hundreds of vaginal rejuvenations using the FemiLift CO2 laser with excellent results and patient satisfaction. He thoroughly researched all types of CO2 lasers before selecting the FemiLift, and he personally performs every procedure himself. His practice is also equipped with the very latest FemiLift technology, including the new vaginal camera that shows women before and after photos.
