Vaginal Itching Treatment with MonaLisa Touch
Vaginal changes, such as vaginal itching, are reported to affect approximately 40% of women going through the transitional menopause stages. Itching anywhere on the body can cause discomfort, but it can be especially troublesome in an area as sensitive as the vagina and vulva. Women can now eliminate this unwanted side effect of menopause with the help of MonaLisa Touch™ vaginal rejuvenation. Mona Lisa Partners offers this innovative vaginal itching treatment to patients in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area.
What is Vaginal Itching?
Vaginal itching, known as pruritus vulvae in the medical field, is very common in women. In fact, it is reported 1 out of 10 women will visit a physician at some point during their life for a diagnosis and treatment plan. Hormonal changes, such as perimenopause and menopause, can cause unwanted itching in the vaginal area where the tissues have become thin and dry due to a lack of estrogen.
In a normal, healthy vagina, the walls stay lubricated with the help of a thin, clear layer of fluid. Estrogen helps maintain the fluid and helps keep the vaginal lining thick and elastic. When estrogen levels drop before, during and after menopause, the moisture level also drops. This causes the vaginal walls to become thinner and less elastic, leading to vaginal itching and other symptoms.
In younger women, vaginal itching often gets better on its own if it is caused by a yeast infection or a chemical irritant. However, perimenopausal and menopausal women often require a vaginal atrophy treatment, such as MonaLisa Touch, to eliminate the unwanted itching.
MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation as a Vaginal Itching Treatment
MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation is an innovative vaginal itching treatment that safely and effectively treats the symptoms of menopause, whether caused by age or from the affects of chemotherapy. Common female symptoms treated by the system include vaginal itching, dryness, burning and painful sexual intercourse, stress urinary incontinence and frequent urinary tract infections.
MonaLisa Touch is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime. This laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment gently delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal tissue. The energy increases blood flow and stimulates collagen growth, causing the vaginal tissue to return to its natural, healthy, youthful state.
The vaginal itching treatments are performed during a short in-office visit at Mona Lisa Partners. Many patients notice results after just one session, but a series of three sessions is necessary for the treatment to be fully effective. Each treatment session is scheduled six weeks apart.
