Vaginal Atrophy Treatments: Laser vs. Hormones
Vaginal Atrophy Treatments:
Geneveve Radiofrequency vs. Hormone Therapy
Vaginal atrophy is a very common feminine problem that results when a woman’s body no longer produces enough female hormone (estrogen) to keep her vagina in soft, lubricated and flexible.
Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include dryness, burning, and itching in the vagina – as well as a loss of vaginal lubrication that results in painful sex. Some types of bladder leaks (urinary incontinence) can also be caused by vaginal atrophy.
In this article we compare traditional treatment of hormone replacement therapy, with the new, state-of-the-art Geneveve vaginal radiofrequency treatment for vaginal atrophy.
Hormone Therapy for Vaginal Atrophy Treatment
In the past, doctors only option for treating women who suffered from vaginal atrophy was hormone replacement therapy. Hormone therapy typically started with estrogen being applied topically in the vagina. Women could use a cream, a “ring” or use a vaginally inserted tablet. If this method was not effective, women were typically put on hormone pills (oral Estrogen).
All of these treatments were quite inconvenient as they had to be repeated daily. And th application of vaginal hormones creams and pills is generally unpleasant and messy.
An even bigger problem with hormones replacement, is the fact that it has been shown to increase the risk of heart attack, breast cancer and strokes. Women at-risk for breast cancer, as well as women who are breast cancer survivors are especially advised to avoid hormone replacement therapy.
Geneveve Radiofrequency for Vaginal Atrophy Treatment
Fortunately, Geneveve Vaginal radiofrequency treatment now offers a safe and effective non-hormonal, nonsurgical alternative for treating the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
Geneveve uses a “wand” to stimulate the vagina’s tissue with a controlled radiofrequency energy pulse. This results in an increase in the vagina’s natural collagen production – which is essential to healthy vaginal cells.
Each radiofrequency session only lasts about five minutes, and the entire appointment takes less than a half hour. Unlike tedious everyday hormone treatments – the Geneveve process only requires one single session. The procedure is painless, and women typically see an improvement within a few days of treatment – and full results in a few weeks.
The Geneveve radiofrequency wand stimulates the production of collagen in the vagina, increasing blood flow and lubrication and restoring suppleness. The results is that vaginal dryness & itching, bladder leaks and pain during sex are dramatically reduced.
Unlike hormone replacement therapy, Geneveve vaginal radiofrequency treatment has virtually no side effects. The only real downside to Geneveve, is that it is more expensive than hormones and is typically not covered by most insurance providers. However, we do offer financing options for this amazing treatment at our Birmingham, MI Med Spa.
