Ladies, there is more to vaginal atrophy than you may think. You may be well aware – painfully aware -- of common menopausal and post-menopausal symptoms such as dryness, irritation, discomfort or pain with intercourse, or urinary incontinence. These internal vaginal symptoms develop primarily because estrogen loss causes skin and underlying tissues to lose moisture and elasticity.
But post-menopausal estrogen loss can also cause external, or vulvar, changes that are not merely cosmetic. So you may experience additional pain, itching, etc. outside the vagina.
We’re happy to say that MonaLisa Touch® laser treatment can significantly alleviate both internal and external symptoms to provide comprehensive vaginal area relief.
Surprisingly Simple, Loved by Patients
Virtually all women are great candidates for this treatment. Laser treatment involves no chemicals or hormones, so it is safe for breast cancer patients and others who cannot take hormones as well as any woman who simply does not want estrogen therapy to relieve post-menopausal symptoms.
Our patients love MonaLisa Touch® because:
- The treatment is painless – patients typically say they feel a vibrating sensation
- In-office treatment sessions take just 5 minutes
- there are VIRTUALLY no side effects or adverse reactions
- There’s no downtime, so you can go right back to your daily routine
Although MANY patients start to feel changes after their first treatment, results progressively increase with additional sessions. This is why we perform a series of three treatments, about six weeks apart. After all, we know you want maximum results. We have also found that many patients like to return for annual refresher treatments.
Here’s How It Works
To perform the treatment, we insert a wand-like device into the vagina, then gently realign and rotate it to deliver laser energy deep into the tissues. We then use a different device to treat the external vaginal area. The laser energy stimulates natural production of new cells and collagen to produce renewed tissue that is hydrated, firmer, and healthier. The treatment also restores vaginal pH to pre-menopausal levels.
Not all providers treat the full vaginal area, but we believe our patients deserve the best we can deliver.
Treatments are so simple, it’s hard to believe how effective the results can be. But you can believe it. In a clinical study conducted by Stanford University, 96% of women reported they were satisfied or extremely satisfied following treatment. They experienced significant, documented improvement in:
- Painful intercourse
- Painful urination
We’ve seen results like this among our own patients. In fact we’ve been amazed at how well MonaLisa Touch® exceeds expectations.
