As a woman, your body feels the effects of age in many ways — including your vagina, which can lose its elasticity and vitality as the collagen fibers in the vaginal tissue become worn out. The aging process creates several vaginal issues that can be corrected with the innovative V•nu™ vaginal rejuvenation treatment designed to help women feel their best without having to go through invasive surgery.
Dr. Wade McKenna at MOAB in Dallas and Trophy Club, Texas, is an expert at delivering this treatment to address a number of complaints women have related to vaginal atrophy. Here are five vaginal issues that he commonly solves with V•nu treatments.

Looseness and weakness of muscles and tissues in the vagina are very common as women age, especially for those who’ve given birth and experienced trauma and stretching. This looseness of the vaginal canal can lead to many other vaginal and urinary problems.
This is perhaps one of the greatest concerns with vaginal aging. If an action like laughing, sneezing, or coughing puts pressure on your bladder that causes urine to escape when you don’t intend it to, it indicates that your weakened vaginal muscles aren’t strong enough to fully control your bladder.
Pain and Dryness
Reduced estrogen levels can also cause a lack of lubrication and pain during sexual intercourse. This, in turn, may cause you to become less intimate with your partner because you don’t want to feel the pain.
Diminished Sexual Satisfaction
In addition to the pain and dryness, your overall sexual sensation can be diminished by your loose vaginal muscles. This decreased sensation leads to an overall lack of fulfillment in your sex life.
When your vaginal muscles are weak and not functioning as they should, the circulation of your blood is lower there compared to healthy, vibrant tissue. Addressing this decrease can restore young, vital, fully functioning tissue.
How does V•nu help?
V•nu is a biologic treatment designed to trigger your body’s healing process using growth factors. During a quick 45-minute appointment, Dr. McKenna injects a proprietary blend of tissue graft into targeted sites throughout your vagina. The new tissue and the growth factors work together to rejuvenate and tighten your vagina, leading to improvements with those disconcerting vaginal and urinary issues.
Most patients see results in about 10-14 days. This minimally invasive procedure doesn’t require any anesthesia, so you can immediately resume normal activities after your treatment session.
We also offer the option to perform V•nu with bone marrow aspiration. One of the richest sources of stem cells in the body is bone marrow, and we can harvest your bone marrow with our proprietary device and then process it in a centrifuge to collect stem cells, platelets, and growth factors.
We then inject this bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) into targeted areas in your vagina to stimulate growth and regeneration. The BMAC can improve vaginal tone and revive its youthful appearance.
