At MedSpa at ChristiMD, we talk openly and honestly with every patient. Our team of medical professionals takes the time to get to know you and understand your needs, rather than trying to upsell the latest treatment.
One of the conversations we often have with women involves their vaginas, particularly relating to sexual health and wellbeing. There, we said it first. Concerns with female anatomy can sometimes be lost in translation when not addressed directly, or not talked about at all.
This is especially true when women need to discuss issues involving sexual performance, achieving orgasm, and how they percieve the appearance of their vulva or vagina.
Once we establish this open dialogue, together we’ll understand how to choose the right vaginal rejuvenation process for your desired results.
Always feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about your concerns and our treatments. The more we all learn, the better we can make the best decisions for the future. Our virtual consultation is a great starting place!
Read on for a frank discussion about the vaginal rejuvenation process in Houston, at MedSpa at ChristiMD.
Why Choose Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation, whether surgical or non-surgical, can address issues that get in the way of enjoying better health, and a more fulfilled life. Vaginal issues can include:
- Inability to orgasm
- Unfulfilling orgasms
- Laxity inside the vagina
- Loose/droopy labia
- And more.
Left unaddressed, these concerns can negatively impact a woman’s self esteem. Dr. Christi discusses women’s sexual dysfunction issues in this video:
When we experience these issues, we can begin to feel like we’re letting our partner down. They want to give us pleasure, but we lose interest in sex when it’s painful to us. Or our ability to orgasm has deteriorated, and the orgasms we do have are just “meh.” We don’t deserve this loss, and neither does our partner.
With the right vaginal rejuvenation process in Houston, you can address these issues and get back on track to loving life, and loving your love life.
Let’s look at two of our most sought-after treatments: MonaLisa Touch®, and Cliovana®.
What causes vaginal dryness?
It’s a fact of life that as we age, women’s estrogen levels go down. This hormone helps maintain vaginal lubrication, along with keeping the tissue elastic, and providing the proper pH levels within the vagina. Obviously, a decrease in estrogen also decreases the body’s ability to perform at levels to which we are accustomed. Estrogen loss is one of the main causes of vaginal dryness.
Other factors can also affect estrogen production:
- Immune disorders
- Illness treatments (such as cancer therapies)
- Cigarette smoking
- Hysterectomy/Oophorectomy (ovary removal surgery)
This lessening of estrogen can cause a condition called “atrophic vaginitis.” The tissues lining the vagina become thin and dry. Atrophic vaginitis can also irritate those tissues, causing inflammation and itching and/or burning sensations. Any or all of these issues make intercourse painful.
They may also affect daily living, as symptoms can include painful urination, sudden need for urination, and an inability to control the urine flow.
Certainly, hormone replacement therapy could help. But many women prefer a treatment that addresses the atrophic vaginitis without need for medication, or any form of invasive treatment. MonaLisa Touch stands out as a premier, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation process in Houston to help with vaginal dryness.
With MonaLisa Touch Laser Treatment, Kiss Dry Good-Bye
MonaLisa Touch cures vaginal dryness, and restores your confidence for daily living and sexual health. In just a few short minutes, this groundbreaking laser treatment can address issues such as vaginal laxity, atrophy, dryness, and urinary incontinence.
How MonaLisa Touch Works
At MedSpa at ChristiMD, Dr. Christi pinpoints areas of unhealthy vaginal tissue and, using a specially designed application wand, applies laser energy to gently remove targeted tissue. The laser energy stimulates the remaining tissue to self-rejuvenate, awakening dormant cells in the vaginal wall.
After treatment, blood vessels increase along with the renewed creation of collagen and elastin—the foundations of healthy, pliable skin tissue. As the vaginal wall tissue heals, it becomes more nourished and hydrated. This makes the epithelium—the outer layer of the tissue—thicker, more toned, and more elastic, addressing laxity with natural vaginal tightening.
The vagina’s pH level will also correct, lessening infection risks and providing a healthier biological environment.
MonaLisa Touch Results
After the first treatment you’ll notice more comfortable intercourse, because the blood flow stimulation from the laser has improved your body’s ability to lubricate. After receiving the MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation process, women can also experience less urine leakage during exercise, coughing or sneezing. They also less frequently get that “gotta go” feeling. Additionally, UTI risk decreases because of the restored healthy vaginal flora.
Best of all—you won’t have to go through any recovery time!
MedSpa at ChristiMD recommends at least 3 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to fully address most patients’ needs. Yours may take more, which will be discussed during your consultation. Yearly touch-up treatments are usually recommended afterward to maintain your positive results.
Cliovana: Addressing the Orgasm Gap
There’s a quiet epidemic among women, from those of us aging to younger women in their prime. When it comes to sex, many of us don’t feel as much intensity as we used to.
Some women—and you’ve probably talked with a few over wine—admit that they’re not sure they’ve ever had an orgasm. MedSpa at ChristiMD has had women come in who divulged that their sex life seemed to be mostly for their male partner’s enjoyment.
A recent survey even claims that over 60% of women say their sex life is unfulfilling. This will not do in this day and age! It’s time you got your pleasure back. Cliovana is the solution.
Sound Waves for Superior Sex
An inadequate sex life could be caused by a number of reasons:
- You’ve lost most of your desire for sex
- Your body doesn’t adequately lubricate even if you’re aroused
- Orgasms are either mediocre or non-existent
- There’s a loss of sensation and adequate blood flow to the vulva & clitoris
Cliovana treatment can help address these issues, regaining lost ground and quite possibly breaking new ground in the process.
How Cliovana works
If Cliovana provides best vaginal rejuvenation process in Houston for your situation, you’ll schedule a treatment time. Most Cliovana sessions last about 10 minutes.
Using Cliovana’s simple, hand-held device, your provider applies ultrasonic frequency sound waves directly to the clitoris and perineum. These pulses boost your body’s natural ability to regenerate cells, resulting in improved blood flow to the clitoris.
Because the Cliovana vaginal rejuvenation process can increase sensations and sensitivity, it can help with painful sex, vaginal dryness, and improved orgasm frequency and intensity. This can make for a much more satisfying experience for both you and for your partner.
The Cliovana 3-Step Process
The provider applies a small suction cup into the clitoris to increase blood flow.
A hand-held application wand applies soundwaves to the clitories, activating the regeneration of tissue within the clitoris.
Called the “soothing phase,” more soundwaves are applied to the area—combined with vibration—to reawaken nerve endings.
Your Cliovana Results
A pilot study of Cliovana showed that after 3 months:
- 100% of the women participants reported a 115% intensity in orgasms.
- Women participants noted a 125% increase in overall satisfaction with sexual activity
With Cliovana treatments, women in Houston continue to experience improvements over the course of a few months, up to 12 months or more. Among the benefits of Cliovana:
- Improved sexual responsiveness
- More powerful, satisfying orgasms
- 100% non-invasive, with no needles, probes, lasers, numbing creams, freezing, or surgery
- Because Cliovana requires no downtime, a woman can have intercourse that night with no difficulty stemming from the treatment.
Some women notice a boost in sexual response and satisfaction immediately. The full effect will take 2 to 3 months because the body is regenerating new tissue in the Cliovana treatment areas.
More Treatment Options at MedSpa at ChristiMD
Though MonaLisa Touch and Cliovana top the list of sought-after vaginal rejuvenation processes at our medical spa in Houston, we have other treatments that help not only support vaginal health, but personal aesthetics.
Sexual wellness involves the body and mind, and how you feel about your appearance matters also. As always, don’t hesitate to make your concerns known as you talk with your wellness provider. We’re a team, devoted to one thing: your path to feeling and living better.
Here are some frequent choices used in conjunction with MonaLisa Touch and Cliovana.
EmFemme® 360 Vaginal Tightening
Modern times have developed revolutionary new vaginal rejuvenation process in Houston. EmFemme 360 is one such system, restoring your vaginal tissue’s previous functionality by stimulating new collagen growth.
Using a hand-held wand, EmFemme 360 delivers volumetric heating to the interior walls of the vagina. Among the issues EmFemme 360 addresses:
- Decreased sexual function
- Vaginal laxity
- Decreased sexual pleasure
- Pain or discomfort (burning or itching)
- Decreased circulation
- Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM)
Within 3 treatment sessions, EmFemme in Houston will help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and calm the detrusor muscle to improve vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence. Most patients are able to return to their regular lifestyle with no downtime, and in the following 2 to 3 months they show significant improvement in arousal, lubrication and orgasm.
Every woman’s labia minora and majora are unique and medically normal. However, age, genetics, childbirth, or declining hormone levels could induce unwanted changes in the appearance of labia majora or minora.
When this happens, they can choose to reduce the size of their labia through labiaplasty.
How Labiaplasty Works
The labiaplasty procedure at MedSpa at ChristiMD can return enlarged or droopy labia to its previous smaller, symmetrical shape and size. Enlarged labia may sometimes cause discomfort with their appearance, and may become irritated and painful when wearing certain clothes or riding a bike or saddle.
During labiaplasty surgery, the lips reconfigured for a smaller, symmetrical appearance. For most women the procedure involves reconfiguring the labia minora, so that they do not extend below the labia majora.
If you’ve vaginally delivered a child, your vaginal walls stretched significantly to allow the baby to pass through your pelvis.
However, when those walls don’t fully recover, they may remain loose after childbirth. Many factors, including mother’s age, genetics and differences in collagen and elastin can influence how well the vagina resumes its normal size.
If they don’t recover, that vaginal wall laxity can impede sexual function and negatively affect bladder and bowel function. Many women talk about feeling stretched out, and losing the enjoyment and response during intercourse that they had previously. These combined factors can greatly impact a woman’s self-esteem and emotional well-being.
Vaginoplasty at MedSpa at ChristiMD can restore your intimacy!
The Vaginoplasty Process
Vaginoplasty requires skillful excision of the loose tissue, and careful relocation of connective tissues and muscles back to their normal configuration. This outpatient surgery lasts about an hour, under general anesthesia.
Once healed, your internal vaginal walls should feel more responsive for both you and your partner, improving the pleasure of intercourse. Vaginoplasty also improves the function of the bladder and rectum for better confidence in daily activities.
