Some women find that changes in gynecological health may be embarrassing to talk about, even with their doctor. There is a treatment that can help!
When estrogen levels decline – whether it is due to perimenopause, menopause, or induced menopause (for those who have gone through breast cancer) – vaginal atrophy occurs and changes can include vaginal dryness, burning, itching, and painful intercourse. These changes can greatly affect a women’s life and intimacy.
Women who are faced with these changes do not have to live with them forever! There is a laser treatment to help restore vaginal health that is non-invasive, FDA-approved, quick and has no side effects. It is called the MonaLisa Touch® and many of our SCWH patients have had great success after their course of treatment.
The MonaLisa Touch® is a fractional CO2 laser that gently delivers energy pulses to the vaginal wall, stimulating a healing response. During a treatment, a vaginal probe is inserted into the vagina, similar to a regular gynecological exam. The procedure lasts about 5 minutes and is virtually painless. The targeted tissue is stimulated to produce new collagen, elastin, and vascularization of the vaginal wall, restoring it to a more youthful state.
Most women feel changes after their first treatment, but 3 treatments every 6-weeks is usually done for optimal results.
If you are experiencing uncomfortable changes in your vaginal health, you do not have to suffer in silence. Talk to someone at SCWH about the life-changing MonaLisa Touch® laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment to restore your vaginal health and reclaim your life and intimacy.
