How MonaLisa Touch Can Help with Your Vaginal Dryness

How MonaLisa Touch Can Help with Your Vaginal Dryness

We often think of estrogen as it relates to our monthly cycle and menopause. But estrogen levels can change for many reasons, including stress, having a baby, breastfeeding, and certain health conditions or disorders. 

One side effect of estrogen imbalances is vaginal dryness. This can affect sexual intercourse, making it less pleasurable and even painful for some women. The good news is that a pain-free, minimally invasive therapy called MonaLisa Touch® can reverse vaginal dryness and improve your natural lubrication.

Take a moment to learn more about vaginal dryness and how the board-certified providers at Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare in Fayetteville, Newnan, and Stockbridge, Georgia, can help restore your most delicate tissues.

Why am I experiencing vaginal dryness?

For most women, low estrogen levels trigger atrophic vaginitis, the official name for vaginal dryness. While the most common cause of low estrogen involves the natural changes in your body during perimenopause and menopause, other conditions can also affect your hormone levels, including:

Some genetic conditions can also affect your estrogen production, including Turner syndrome and fragile X syndrome (FXS).

What can I do for vaginal dryness?

If you’ve noticed vaginal dryness, your provider at Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare can evaluate your symptoms and health history and perform exams and tests to get to the underlying cause of your condition. 

For some women, using nonprescription vaginal lubricants and moisturizers may be enough to cope with their vaginal dryness. However, these therapies must be used regularly and repeatedly to stop dryness. 

If you’re interested in results that last, or if your vaginal dryness is extreme, your provider may recommend additional treatments, such as topical, oral, or subdural hormone-replacement therapy or minimally invasive laser therapy with MonaLisa Touch. 

How does MonaLisa Touch treat vaginal dryness?

MonaLisa Touch uses laser heat to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This CO2 energy works to restore your vaginal tissues, naturally improving lubrication and triggering the skin in and around your vagina to rebuild itself. 

After your MonaLisa Touch sessions, you may notice plumper, more elastic vaginal and vulva tissues, a more youthful look to your labia, and even improvements in your urethra, which may help reduce urinary incontinence

Other benefits you may experience after your MonaLisa Touch treatments include:

Each MonaLisa Touch session only takes minutes, but your tissues keep improving for months after your treatment. While everyone is different, most patients have at least three treatment sessions spaced at six-week intervals.
