For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our team at Rejuvené MD in El Paso, TX, wants to bring attention to treatments that can help the brave survivors of breast cancer. We believe everyone deserves to feel their best, and this is especially true for the warriors who’ve battled breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Treatments for Vaginal Discomfort
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s important to bring attention to many of the challenges survivors face during and after treatment. One side effect of breast cancer treatment can be vaginal irritation and discomfort.
Not only does this affect daily comfort, but it can make intercourse very painful as well. At Rejuvené MD, we offer devices patients can use at home to make their intimate moments more comfortable for them, and we also offer treatments such as the O-Shot and CO2RE Intima.
This treatment is a non-surgical way to help improve your sexual comfort and experience. It uses the powerful growth factors found within your own blood to benefit your intimate areas in multiple ways.
Strengthen and Firm Vaginal Tissues
One of the benefits the O-Shot can bring to the table is stronger vaginal tissues. If breast cancer treatment has left the vagina feeling dry and fragile, this treatment may help to strengthen the area and refresh it back to a healthier state.
Improve Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence
Breast cancer treatments can sometimes contribute to urinary incontinence, but the good news is this treatment can help improve these symptoms and give you better urinary control.
Better Lubrication and Reduced Pain
One of the biggest contributors to painful sex is a lack of lubrication. The O-shot can help to increase your natural lubrication, which can help you not only enjoy more comfortable intimate time with your partner, but should also improve daily comfort levels as better lubrication should translate to less irritation.
Increased Arousal and Sexual Satisfaction
If your sex drive has been negatively impacted by the effects of breast cancer, the O-shot can help increase arousal. The combination of increased arousal and comfort can help you look forward to and enjoy intercourse again.
The rush of feel-good endorphins after an orgasm can help promote a sense of well-being and can make sexual experiences more fulfilling. The reason this treatment is called an O-shot is due to its ability to improve orgasms and thus help bring you a better overall sexual experience.
For patients who prefer a laser treatment, this is another gentle, non-surgical option that can offer both vulvar and vaginal revitalization by increasing collagen levels in the treated areas. It’s been known for a while now that collagen can offer some pretty significant restoration benefits, so this treatment is a way to work together with your body to restore areas that have been affected by breast cancer or age.
Like the O-shot, this treatment can improve comfort during intercourse and can improve your natural lubrication. In addition to helping with issues like vaginal dryness, it can also improve sensitivity if you’ve lost some sensation in the area.
If you’ve been struggling with your energy levels, IV therapy is a tool that could help you regain some of that lost vitality. Our team of experts can help you choose from a range of therapies to help you feel good from the inside out.
IV therapy is meant to support, nourish, and hydrate an exhausted body. It delivers antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and hydration right into your bloodstream so your body can use it right away, instead of having to wait for oral supplements to work their way through your digestive tract.
What Can IV Cocktails Help With?
Our range of IV therapy options can help improve a variety of symptoms. In some cases we may recommend pretreatment testing to help us determine what deficiencies your body may be dealing with, so we know the best way to help you combat them. One of the best benefits this therapy offers is immediate quality hydration, which by itself can help relieve many symptoms and complaints.
Some of the symptoms that can be improved with this therapy include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Sore muscles
What To Expect From an IV Therapy Session
First off, you can expect to receive an IV catheter in your arm so the hydration and nutrients can go right into your bloodstream for immediate benefits. A saline solution containing the therapy mixture of your choice will be attached to the catheter, and will deliver its contents to your body through a slow drip.
Including the time it takes to discuss your options and prepare, the treatment as a whole should take between 45 minutes to an hour, so this is a great time to settle down with your favorite podcast or book of your choice. If you find this treatment helpful and want to repeat it in the future, let us know and we can help you set up a schedule that works for you.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Clients who have been through breast cancer may find their hormone levels are out of balance. Those who qualify for replacement therapy may benefit from having some of these lost hormone levels replaced. During a consultation we can help you determine if this therapy is a good fit for you, and if it could help improve symptoms associated with hormones being out of balance.
One change that isn’t always discussed during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the effect it can have on a survivor’s skin. Your local drugstore may not have products that are helpful for your needs, and it can be overwhelming, discouraging, and costly to keep trying different products that aren’t a good fit for you.
Medical-grade cosmeceuticals like the ones we offer here are hand-picked just for you, with your needs, skin type, medical history, and goals all in mind. We want all of our patients to be happy in the skin they’re wearing, and we’re ready to team up with you and find the right products.
What Benefits Can Medical Grade Skincare Offer?
Due to the improved strength of their active ingredients, medical-grade cosmeceuticals are only available through a physician. The active ingredient in a product is what makes it work, and these skincare products usually have higher concentration levels of the active ingredients. The result is a treatment that should give you more efficient and effective results that can help you refresh and transform your skin.
For clients who do find an over-the-counter product that helps their skin, but wish it was just a bit more effective, a higher concentration of the product might be just what you’re looking for. A little goes a long way when it comes to medical-grade skincare. You may find yourself saving money when you’re able to use just a bit of the product instead of having to slather on the over-the-counter product for a similar effect.
Additional benefits our medical-grade products can offer include improving discoloration or hyperpigmentation, helping your skin renew and revitalize its treated cells, and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
