After childbirth, many women experience looseness of the vaginal canal and the introitus (opening of the vagina). Many women often experience symptoms such as burning, itching, dryness, incontinence, and painful intercourse. And regardless of age, as women get older many experience cosmetic changes to their genitalia – such as pigmentation and sagging of the vulva skin. We offer 2 different therapies for these symptoms: Intima and platelet rich plasma (PRP).
CO2RE Intima Vaginal Rejuvenation
Intima is an in-office, non-surgical medical laser treatment that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance. The delivery of this laser energy to the vaginal wall stimulates a healing response that results in remodeling of the tissue fibers, thereby restoring flexibility and shape while also enhancing moisture levels in the vaginal canal.
- Relieves signs of childbirth and aging
- Restores vaginal tone, flexibility and shape
- Treats dryness, itching and pain
- Treats dyschromia and skin pigmentation
In response to the laser procedure, the body begins to heal itself by making new collagen and blood vessels. When more collagen is produced, the vaginal walls are tightened. This results in increased friction and the spongy erectile tissue (G- spot) directly underneath the vaginal walls are closer to the surface (more easily stimulated). In addition, the “legs” or crus of the clitoris are in closer contact with the vaginal surface so they can be stimulated easier. This makes orgasms more easily obtainable and more intense which increases sexual satisfaction. In addition, the regeneration of new, healthy, stronger tissue (collagen and elastin) supporting the base of the bladder/urethra treats leaky bladders! Increased blood flow helps with vaginal lubrications and relieves women of vaginal dryness, itching, and painful intercourse.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation with PRP (sometimes referred to as the ‘O’ shot) is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that uses a patient’s own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system, allowing more blood to flow to the organ, enhancing sensitivity and delivering dramatic improvement in sexual function.
PRP begins with a simple blood draw and then the platelets are separated and concentrated. The PRP that contains growth factors that are extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection for patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.
The process of injection triggers the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and improve functional potential.
Women often enjoy some effects almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance sexual response. Women who receive PRP have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment, and, for many, the increase is dramatic.
Although each woman’s experience may differ in some ways, many patients report:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother skin on the vulva (lips of the vagina)
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Stronger orgasm
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased or resolved urinary incontinence (both urge and stress problems)
“I chose to have a the Intima therapy in regards to vaginal dryness, recurrent infections, and increased urine frequency. The procedure was relatively painless, Dr. Jess really does a great job at assuring the procedure is as comfortable as possible. It has been approximately 2 months since my last Intima procedure and I feel I have less dryness, have not had an infection, and the urinary frequency has greatly diminished. I recommend the Intima procedure. I have shared my experience with my primary health care provider and she was pleased to hear Bella Rose is offering a variety of services in regards to women’s health care and general well being.” – Ann D.
