More about the service
Vaginal dryness, atrophy, and laxity affect millions of women as a result of menopause, pregnancy, childbirth, cancer treatment, or a hysterectomy. Vaginal atrophy is the thinning and hardening of the vaginal tissues resulting from a lack of estrogen.
The most common symptoms of vaginal atrophy are:
- Vaginal burning and itching
- Pain and discomfort during intercourse
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Urinary leakage and incontinence
In the past, vaginal atrophy and dryness could only be alleviated with hormone therapy or surgery, both of which carry significant risks. Today, increasing numbers of women are turning to the minimally invasive, hormone-free treatment of the MonaLisa Touch® fractional CO2 laser.
Treatment entails the insertion of a thin wand into the vagina that delivers light energy deep into the vaginal walls. The laser light pulses stimulate the fibroblasts in your cells to produce new collagen while increasing blood circulation in the vaginal wall. As a result, tissues become more elastic and can produce increased fluids and mucous. Tissues thicken, become more flexible, and the vagina walls regain their youthful tone and texture.
MonaLisa Touch® is a simple, five-minute office procedure that does not require any anesthesia. Most women find treatment highly tolerable. A minority may experience minimal discomfort, but that resolves quickly on its own.
There is no downtime. However, you must abstain from sexual activity and vigorous physical exercise for 3-4 days following treatment.
