Hormones — and we’re talking about estrogen and progesterone — have an incredible impact on a woman’s life, which is made quite obvious when swings in their levels create life-altering changes that affect overall health and wellness. This is especially true when it comes to your sexual health, which is directly governed by your reproductive hormones.
Events like menopause, childbirth, and certain medications and treatments can have a significant influence on your hormone production, leaving you with a host of unwanted side effects, with vaginal dryness near or at the top of the list.
As a board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Dennis Roberts understands the powerful effect a drop in hormones can have on your sexual health, which is why he offers the most advanced treatments to his patients in Indio, California. Using a laser technology called TempSure, we’re able to address vaginal health without the use of hormones or other invasive measures.
If you’d like a hormone-free solution to your vaginal dryness, read on to learn how we can help with the game-changing technology of TempSure.
Shedding new light
For far too long, women’s sexual health took a backseat to men’s sexual health, where billions of dollars were spent to come up with little blue pills, allowing men to enjoy sex long into their Golden Years.
Women, meanwhile, passed through menopause and simply dealt with the changes in their bodies in silence. Thanks to ever-involving laser technology, women’s sexual health has been thrown a lifeline, and we have it here in our office.
Sending the right signal
Among the responsibilities of your body’s estrogen is the health of the tissue in your vaginal walls. When you pass through menopause, your estrogen levels drop off dramatically, which means your body is no longer sending resources to the tissue inside your vagina, leaving you with thinning and dry walls.
Of course, every woman is different, and some may feel these effects more than others, but studies show that over half of women in the U.S. between the ages of 51 and 60 experience some degree of vaginal dryness.
If you count yourself in this group, the TempSure technology provides a solution that circumvents the lack of estrogen without having to rely on replacement hormone therapy.
Using laser technology, we direct radiofrequency energy into your tissue, without harming the surface area, to stimulate a mild healing response. This response comes in the form of increased collagen production and better circulation. Collagen is responsible for the tone and elasticity in your tissue, so the increased production shores up and thickens the walls of your vagina, creating the pH balance necessary for mucus, which is what provides your lubrication.
The improved circulation also contributes to renewed health and can even help restore sensitivity to your tissue.
Though TempSure works well on the inside of your vagina, it can also help tighten your outer genitalia by encouraging the same collagen response to help with lax tissue.
Fast and easy
One of the best things about TempSure is that the treatment is completely noninvasive, meaning there’s no downtime afterward, and you can return to your daily routine right away. Treatment time is minimal and usually only takes us a few minutes.
You may need several treatments, which we space several weeks apart to allow time for your body to go to work with renewed collagen and increased blood circulation. Most of our patients enjoy gradual results during this time, with optimal result 6-12 weeks after the final session.
With TempSure, you no longer have to suffer the effects of poor vaginal health. If you’d like to learn more, please give us a call, or request an appointment using the online booking tool found on this website.
