Our approach is to provide comprehensive care that addresses your specific needs and concerns related to sexual dysfunction.

We meet you exactly where you are in your journey toward improved sexual health.

What Is Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction refers to a range of issues that hinder sexual desire or response, particularly affecting women’s sexual wellness. These can include problems with arousal, lack of interest in sex, pain during intercourse, or difficulty achieving orgasm. While the causes can be psychological, physical, or a combination of both, understanding and addressing sexual dysfunction is a step toward reclaiming sexual health.

What Can We Treat?  

  • Low Libido: A common aspect of sexual dysfunction, low libido refers to a decreased interest in sexual activity. It’s a condition that can stem from various factors, including hormonal changes, stress, and underlying health issues.
  • Vaginal Dryness: This condition can lead to discomfort and a lack of pleasure during intercourse. It’s often a result of hormonal changes, particularly during menopause, but treatments are available to alleviate this issue.
  • Vaginal Laxity: Often a consequence of childbirth or aging, vaginal laxity can affect a woman’s physical sensation and sexual satisfaction. Vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help tighten and improve the function of the vaginal area.
  • Painful Intercourse: Known medically as dyspareunia, this condition can make sexual encounters uncomfortable or even painful. Various factors can cause it, from physical issues to psychological concerns, but options are available to address and mitigate this discomfort.
  • Inability to Orgasm: This type of sexual dysfunction involves difficulty reaching orgasm or experiencing reduced intensity of orgasms. For this concern, the cause will determine which treatment we pursue.

Our Female Sexual Dysfunction Treatments

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone imbalances are a common contributor to sexual dysfunction in women, often resulting from menopause, thyroid disorders, or postpartum changes. These imbalances can affect libido, comfort, and overall sexual health. In addressing these challenges, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which aims to restore hormonal balance in a more natural way.

Our approach to treatment includes both oral and topical hormone solutions, allowing us to cater to individual needs and preferences. Through these hormone replacement methods, we can alleviate the symptoms of sexual dysfunction and improve your quality of life in a way that respects your body’s natural rhythms.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments With Viora

We offer effective women’s sexual wellness treatments from Viora designed to improve vaginal health, appearance, and function. These devices offer non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation and can treat the most common symptoms of women’s sexual dysfunction while also improving vaginal aesthetics and function. We offer Viora treatments with three different handpieces: the V-VR, the V-FR, and the V-ST.

Each can accomplish different aging-related and aesthetic goals and can address many common symptoms that affect women’s sexual wellness. This includes vaginal dryness, vaginal skin laxity, reduced sexual sensation, stress urinary incontinence, and other changes in the function and appearance of the vagina and surrounding area.


VVR is a treatment option from Viora specifically designed for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. It uses a combination of CORE and CO-Polar RF energy to address vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, and urinary incontinence. Patients won’t need any topical anesthetic before treatment and can expect a virtually painless and non-invasive treatment process.

Patients can expect a warming sensation during treatment and won’t have to plan around any downtime. The best results typically come after undergoing three to four sessions, with approximately four weeks between each.


V-FR is another vaginal rejuvenation handpiece from Viora that uses fractional radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. V-FR can stimulate natural collagen and elastin production to tighten the skin in and around the vaginal area, improve vaginal appearance, and reduce the symptoms of sexual dysfunction.


The V-ST handpiece is designed for radiofrequency, energy-based skin tightening. We can use it to perform a non-surgical and non-invasive labiaplasty and target loose skin on the labia by stimulating natural collagen and elastin production, eliminating the need for a surgical labiaplasty. Patients typically achieve the best results after four to six sessions, with a few weeks between each.

There’s no social downtime with this type of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, and patients can resume their normal daily activities immediately after treatment. Results are typically noticeable within the first few weeks of treatment and will continue to improve as the body increases collagen production.


Vaginoplasty is a surgical option for addressing female sexual dysfunction. This treatment can improve the structural integrity of the vaginal canal, enhancing both function and sensation. It may be recommended for women experiencing changes due to aging, childbirth, or other factors. By restoring the vaginal area’s anatomy, vaginoplasty aims to improve sexual satisfaction and comfort.


Labiaplasty is tailored toward improving sexual wellness by reshaping and resizing the labia. This procedure can alleviate discomfort caused by enlarged or asymmetrical labia, which can interfere with exercise, wearing tight clothing, or sexual activity. Beyond physical comfort, labiaplasty may also contribute to a woman’s aesthetics and overall well-being.


Medications play a crucial role in managing infections or medical conditions that contribute to sexual dysfunction. By treating underlying issues such as yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, or hormonal imbalances, these medications can alleviate symptoms that hinder sexual health. Our approach involves a thorough evaluation to prescribe the most effective treatment.
