Painful Intercourse Treatment

Painful Intercourse Laser Treatment

Nothing is more frustrating than feeling uncomfortable before, during or after intimate moments. Painful intercourse has several causes, two of the most common being the narrowing of the vaginal opening and/or a thinning of vaginal walls called vaginal atrophy. When the vaginal walls start thinning, it can lead to dryness and irritation.

Generally, these conditions are caused by a lack of estrogen and a decline in the elasticity of vaginal collagen.

Our revolutionary Erbium laser protocol, supplemented with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an effective treatment for this life altering problem. Maintenance involves only a quick once a year treatment, instead of having to insert creams or tablets in your vagina numerous time a week, forever.
