While the common symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats are widely known, there are other gynecologic changes that aren’t discussed as much. Nearly 45 percent of all post-menopausal women are suffering from vaginal atrophy, a condition that can lead to vaginal itching, dryness, and painful intercourse. The minimally-invasive MonaLisa Touch procedure can help relieve these symptoms without painful surgery or risky medications!*
The MonaLisa Touch uses C02 fractional laser technology which works to reverse atrophy and laxity often caused by hormonal changes in the body. The laser is inserted vaginally and energy pulses are directed at the walls, stimulating the production of collagen. This process helps to naturally increase blood flow and lubrication to the vagina, which improves the overall function.
Vaginal revitalization treatments are completed in the comfort of our office, do not require anesthesia, and only take about 30 minutes to complete. While the procedure is not considered painful, an anesthetic cream can be applied to help alleviate any discomfort experienced. While some women may have relief from their symptoms after just one treatment, typically three sessions are advised to achieve the best results. Because the procedure is minimally-invasive, women are able to return to their normal daily activities without interruption but are advised to refrain from sexual activity for two days following treatments.
