Rejuvenate Your Health and Confidence With The MonaLisa Touch®

If you’ve been through menopause, either naturally or induced due to cancer treatment, chances are you’ve heard of vaginal atrophy. Also known as “genitourinary syndrome of menopause,” the condition happens when the body’s estrogen levels drop, and its symptoms range from annoying to embarrassing to outright painful. Vaginal itching, dryness, burning, and urinary tract infections are all common with vaginal atrophy, and a reported 75 percent of women say the condition “negatively impacts their lives.”

It’s estimated that nearly half of postmenopausal women experience vaginal atrophy, but don’t panic yet. Nowadays there are non-invasive treatments that can significantly address the condition to restore vaginal health and improve both confidence and sex life for women.

The MonaLisa Touch® is an FDA-approved laser treatment that uses proprietary technology to send energy pulses to the vaginal wall to produce new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. Think of it as restoring some youthful properties to your vagina without your having to undergo major surgery or other lengthy therapies.

The procedure takes about five minutes per session and can be done in your doctor’s office. Most patients do three treatments every six weeks. And because it’s a laser-based treatment that’s non-invasive, the procedure requires no anesthesia and won’t significantly disrupt your day-to-day activities afterward. (Your doctor should discuss specific post-treatment procedures with you.)

Putting an end to painful symptoms of vaginal atrophy is alone reason enough for most postmenopausal women to try the procedure out. But the MonaLisa Touch® has other added other benefits, too: SCWH’s patients have reported up to 90 percent more lubrication, less pain during intercourse, and more meaningful relationships when it comes to intimacy.

Contact us today to see if MonaLisa Touch® is right for you.
