How to Prevent Vaginal Dryness with Red Light Therapy

How to Prevent Vaginal Dryness with Red Light Therapy - MyElle

Going through menopause is the greatest life challenge senior women face in their twilight years. After the age of 40, hormone production starts to slow dramatically. Around a decade later, it grinds to a halt, and your estrogen levels plummet.

When menopause takes hold of your body, it can have some major drawbacks on your physical and mental health. Mentally, you'll feel low and depressed more often, as estrogen remains low. Some women might develop anxiety disorders and sleeping issues like insomnia.

The physical effects are most apparent on your skin, causing sagging, wrinkles, and lines on your face. However, the most disturbing physical symptoms of menopause are its effect on your vagina. Menopause leads to a condition known as "Vaginal Atrophy."

Women with VA experience a slowdown in collagen production – the most abundant hormone in the body. Collagen is essential for building and maintaining the health of tissues in the pelvis and vaginal canal.

Without collagen, the vaginal tissues start to shrink. You'll notice the onset of vaginal dryness, and sex with your partner begins to hurt. How to prevent vaginal dryness? Is it something that you'll have to learn to live with during your senior years? 


What Is Vaginal Dryness?

Vaginal dryness occurs when the Bartholin's ducts at the front of the vagina stop secreting fluid. These glands make women feel wet during arousal, and when collagen production declines, they dry up.

Vaginal dryness starts slowly. You might notice it develop over several months until sex starts feeling painful.


Who Gets Vaginal Dryness?

Vaginal dryness starts at the early stages of menopause. Women can experience this condition any time after they turn 40. It's important to note that vaginal dryness can also occur due to other circumstances. An STI or bacterial imbalance in the vagina can cause the Bartholin's ducts to stop secreting fluid.


Can You Stop Vaginal Dryness?

So, what can I do for feminine dryness? That's a common question most women ask as menopause starts to take its toll on vaginal health. Yes, it's possible to stop or limit the effects of vaginal dryness in your senior years.

Red light therapy offers pre and post-menopausal women the opportunity to reduce and reverse the effects of vaginal atrophy.


What Is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy involves the use of red light waves in the spectrum of 610nm to 700nm. Red light devices use specialized LEDs to produce these specific light waves, pushing them deep into the skin layers.

Red light helps to stimulate energy production at a cellular level, boosting cellular communication and cellular repair. As a result, your skin looks younger, and you feel more energetic. There are no peer-reviewed scientific studies available on the effects of red light therapy for treating menopause.

Red light therapy has been around since 1969, but it is only recently gaining traction as a popular anti-aging treatment. Currently, therapists are using RLT to assist with treating a bunch of physical problems. The therapeutic effect of red light can help people deal with weight loss issues that occur with the hormonal slowdown in the aging process.

RLT is also showing promise in treating people who are dealing with severe depression and PSTD. The red light penetrates deep into the brain when used as a cranial treatment. The red light helps to repair neural damage, helping to resolve issues like insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

However, plenty of private research shows the tremendous benefits of red light therapy on creating an anti-aging effect. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, and we need it for skin and tissue health, as well as sexual health. RLT is an effective solution for boosting collagen production.


Red Light Therapy as a Treatment for Vaginal Dryness

As mentioned, one of the reasons why women go through the process of vagina atrophy is due to the drop in collagen production. We need to pay attention to its effects on the vaginal wall and the labia. By increasing collagen production in these areas, you help to reverse the effects of vaginal atrophy.

By increasing collagen production, you add volume back into the tissues in the vaginal wall and the cervix. Post-menopausal women and new mothers typically find they start to develop problems with urinary incontinence. The light therapy also helps to health problems with pelvic tissues, resolving issues like urinary incontinence.


How Do I Use Red Light Therapy at Home?

Red light therapy devices are available for at-home therapy. We suggest you take a look at our MyElleVibe light devices. Thesee red light devices from our factory are ideal for a red light device for vaginal rejuvenation.

Both devices feature an ergonomic design for fitment inside the vagina during your therapy session. You coat the device with a specialized photonic gel that enhances the LEDs' red light at the front of the our device.

The LEDs focus the red light energy on the sidewalls of the vaginal canal and the cervix. The device also features a vibrating function, with 10-speed mode functionality. You synchronize this device with your Kegel training and fast-track your return to vaginal health.

You'll use the MyElleVibe device once every-other-day. The training session lasts 12-minutes, and that's more than enough time to help your body boost collagen production. You should notice changes in your vaginal health every week. After 60-days of treatment, your vaginal health will be noticeably better.
