Hormone Imbalance Painful Intercourse Urinary Incontinence Wellness

A Lifelong Guide to Women’s Sexual Health in Kansas City | AesthetiCare

Navigating women’s sexual health can be difficult at any age. Often, there are limited resources available to women as they age, and not enough open discourse about how to practice sexual wellness or what that may entail.

At AesthetiCare, we are committed to being a resource for women of all ages, and empowering our Kansas City clients with the premier aesthetic treatments to promote lifelong women’s sexual health.

Keep reading, and let us show you what it looks like to prioritize your sexual wellness as a woman through all stages of life. But first, why is women’s sexual health important? ⬇️

The importance of women’s sexual health

Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being when it comes to your sexuality. It is a multi-faceted health focus that encompasses much more than just your most intimate times.

Curating healthy habits and a healthy attitude toward your sexual wellness can make a big impact in many areas of your life.

Building healthy relationships

Sexual health can help to build and deepen relationships. Healthy communication with an intimate partner means being able to address both your physical and emotional needs. Creating a space to share these things authentically inspires trust and safety, two things that are important in any relationship. 

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle

Your hormones, brain, and body are all interconnected when it comes to women’s sexual health. This means that sexual wellness has a lot more to do with your daily habits than you might think. 

Everything from diet and exercise to mental health and self-esteem can positively or negatively affect your sexual wellness. For example, things like a lack of sleep or excessive stress can turn down your sex drive, making sex difficult to engage in or enjoy. 

Building healthy habits, like staying active and practicing self-care, encourages overall wellness and is a great way to create a healthy lifestyle that positively impacts your sexual health.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle also means practicing safe sex, both physically and emotionally.

Recognizing sexual disfunction

Sexual dysfunction can impact women of any age, and it’s important to equip yourself with the tools to recognize it within women’s sexual health. Recognizing sexual dysfunction means not only that you’re able to treat it effectively, but also that you can take ownership of your sexual wellness.

Causes of sexual dysfunction

Your sexuality is influenced by all areas of your life, and the causes of sexual dysfunction are not always physical. Sexual dysfunction can stem from:

While some of these issues may require help from a medical professional, many of them can be treated by consulting with our nurses and customizing a unique treatment plan using non-invasive treatment options targeted toward these concerns.

Let’s take a closer look into women’s sexual health treatments available at AesthetiCare for every stage of womanhood.

Top treatments for your 20’s

As a woman in her 20’s, you have the perfect opportunity to set yourself up for success by creating healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Your sexual wellness journey may just be beginning, so it’s more important than ever to instill best practices for taking care of yourself and your sexual health.

As far as treatments go, you may be looking for aesthetic options that make you feel sexy and confident.

Laser Hair Removal

If you’re looking for more permanent intimate grooming options, you may consider laser hair removal. It is a safe and effective process for permanently removing unwanted body hair on your:

  • Underarms
  • Legs 
  • Bikini line

The FDA-approved laser destroys unwanted hair at the follicle, which prevents regrowth, leaving the skin smooth and untouched. You can achieve results with laser hair removal in 6-12 sessions over a period of months.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is fully customizable. Whether you’re looking to remove a lot or a little, your goals are completely personalized to you and should make you feel more confident than ever.

Say goodbye to razors, wax, and smelly creams! Removing the hair at the follicle means preventing hair regrowth, so you can stay smooth all the time.

You can achieve dramatic results after just a few sessions. Depending on the treatment area, sessions may only last 15-60 minutes with extremely minimal recovery time, making this a low-maintenance option for intimate grooming.

How to thrive in your 30’s

Your 30’s can be a transformative time in your life. For many people, it means more stability and security, and looking forward to the life you’re building. Maybe that even means starting a family.

Whether your priorities from your 20’s have changed or not, your body may be going through natural changes of its own. Part of women’s sexual health is celebrating these changes, and welcoming them as the signal of a new phase of womanhood.

Read below about one of our most popular treatments among 30-somethings at AesthetiCare.

Emsella

Emsella is a treatment for women that uses the electromagnetic technology of our Emsculpt treatment to tighten and tone your pelvic floor muscles. It is a chair-like machine that stimulates thousands of contractions in your pelvic floor muscles, simulating an intense workout.

The contractions strengthen your pelvic floor muscles to help a variety of concerns, including:

  • Urinary leakage
  • Urinary urgency
  • Urinary frequency
  • Sexual health
  • Sexual function

Emsella strengthens the muscles responsible for controlling your bladder and the muscles engaged during sexual activity, improving function for both.

The Benefits of Emsella 

Emsella effectively engages all muscles in your pelvic floor associated with loss of urinary control to strengthen them and improve incontinence issues.

The treatment is not painful and requires no downtime. You remain fully clothed for the treatment, making it quick and easy! 

Your pelvic floor muscles are the same muscles used during sex for women. During intercourse, your pelvic floor muscles tense, and during orgasm, they release and relax. Strengthening these muscles can enhance your sexual experience and make your orgasms longer and stronger too.

For the fabulous 40 and 50-somethings

Marriage, motherhood, and menopause are common markers of life for our fabulous 40 and 50-somethings. As your body changes and your hormones shift, you may be feeling the effects of pregnancy and childbirth in intimate ways.

Vaginal rejuvenation is achieved by aesthetic treatments and can be the perfect solution to many women’s concerns regarding sexual health and wellness in their mid-years.

diVa Laser

The diVa laser is a vaginal rejuvenation laser that uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. Using them in tandem triggers the body to produce more collagen and elastin in your most sensitive area. 

This vaginal rejuvenation treatment can effectively increase confidence and address a variety of physical concerns, including: 

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Thinning of the vaginal wall
  • Atrophy
  • Decreased blood flow
  • Painful intercourse
  • Skin laxity
  • Stress urinary incontinence 

The diVa laser is a popular choice for women looking to reverse or mend the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, making it the perfect treatment option for women in their mid-years.

The Benefits of diVa Laser Treatments

The increase in collagen and elastin in the vaginal tissue improves natural lubrication and makes intercourse more enjoyable. 

Rejuvenating and restoring the vaginal tissue can also decrease laxity of the vaginal wall caused by childbirth. 

The procedure causes an increase in fibroblasts, vascularity, and endothelial enlargement to improve vaginal tone from the inside out. 

This treatment also resurfaces the vaginal wall, improving overall vaginal health and helping women maintain sexual health as they age!

Words of wisdom for the mature woman

It’s no secret that aging can cause dramatic changes in our bodies for both men and women. As women move into the more mature phases of life, major hormonal changes like menopause can affect our sexual and overall wellness.

At AesthetiCare, we believe that the time to improve your sexual experience and wellness has never passed. Major hormonal shifts in this phase of life may impact women’s sexual health, but you don’t have to suffer the consequences.

Hormone Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy is a customizable treatment option for women looking to restore balance in their life and mitigate physical changes caused by menopause and aging.

Hormone therapy can treat a wide variety of symptoms, including:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal dryness and/or atrophy
  • Pain during sex
  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Brain fog
  • Perimenopause symptoms
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Thyroid imbalance

Benefits of Hormone Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy can help you prioritize and optimize your overall health and well-being by restoring balance to your life.

Hormone therapy does not require downtime after the procedure, so you can be out of the office and back to your life in no time.

Hormone therapy is often able to treat a wide variety of symptoms that are not addressable with just one treatment.

Combining aesthetic treatments for women’s sexual wellness can be a great option for women of all ages to enhance the procedures’ overall effectiveness.
