Exciting developments in technologies such as laser, radio wave, bio-feedback and PRP are being refocused to empower women to live fuller, healthier and more vibrant lives.
Tens of millions of American women suffer from uncomfortable, disruptive vaginal issues resulting from menopause, child birth, cancer treatment and even sports. Roughly 50% of post-menopausal women and those who undergo cancer treatment experience vaginal dryness or VVA (vulvo-vaginal atrophy). A large pool of women also experience incontinence or structural changes from child birth. So what’s the big deal you ask? Physically, it can make sex painful (dyspareunia) feeling like a red-hot poker is stabbing inside of you. Vaginal tissues thin, leading to tearing that can leave women vulnerable to infection, irritation and extreme discomfort.
Psychologically VVA and incontinence impact self-esteem, lead to guilt, shame and can destroy intimate relationships. Many women suffer in silence or don’t know that there are new and excellent options available to maintain and restore their intimate fitness™ and health. A new exciting era in vaginal restoration and rejuvenation is upon us ladies.
Happily, companies have harnessed existing technology for non or minimally invasive, pain free or virtually pain free procedures. They are restore self-lubrication, plump or re-vascularize vaginal tissue, stimulate collagen production and curb or stop incontinence. Some women experience a tightening of the vagina too. The results are superior comfort, confidence and improved sex lives for countless people. Technologies are also preventive, as in recent 3D Mammogram screening technology.
