Vaginal atrophy is a common issue that women would rather not discuss. It can result from childbirth or just reaching a certain age. Rather than just suffer in silence, consider looking into the revolutionary MonaLisa Touch treatment.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
The condition treated by this procedure, vaginal atrophy, is typically caused by the body producing less estrogen. This is common during and after menopause. Childbirth can also cause many of the problems solved by the MonaLisa Touch. This treatment utilizes a CO2 laser in order to encourage the body to heal itself. New collagen is formed, plumping the area and reducing or eliminating several uncomfortable symptoms of vaginal atrophy. The vaginal walls are strengthened, and blood flow is increased to the area as well. There are many common issues that this treatment can address, including:
- Vaginal Itching
- Stress Incontinence
- Urge Incontinence
- Vaginal Burning
- Painful Intercourse
- Generalized Vaginal Pain
- Poor Self Esteem
What to Expect with MonaLisa Touch Treatments
This is a very comfortable procedure. Anesthesia is not required and you can leave as soon as the treatment is over. In order to reach your optimal results, you will likely need 3 sessions over the course of 12-18 weeks. Each treatment session takes as little as 5-10 minutes. You will experience improvements after each treatment. The best course of action for you is something that can be discussed at your consultation.
After your treatment, you can resume your normal life. You will be advised to abstain from sexual intercourse for 2-3 days. Specific aftercare instructions will be given to you based on your experience and needs. Results with this treatment can last up to 2-3 years!
