Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation as a Menopause Treatment
There are countless positives about aging, but uncomfortable vaginal changes during and after menopause is not one of them. The majority of menopausal and postmenopausal women in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area complain of pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal dryness, but that does not mean they have to experience continued discomfort thanks to the board certified OBGYNs and urologists at Mona Lisa Partners. MonaLisa Touch™, a vaginal laser rejuvenation system, is the first intravaginal laser menopause treatment aimed at restoring lost collagen in the vaginal tissue in order to eliminate unwanted vaginal changes that occur from a loss of estrogen.
How Estrogen is Connected to Vaginal Health
The connection between vaginal health and menopause is estrogen. Perimenopause can occur as early as a woman’s late-30s and marks the beginning of the decline in estrogen of the ovaries’ estrogen-producing capabilities. By the time a woman reaches menopause, typically in her early-50s, the ovaries have stopped producing estrogen all together.
Estrogen plays an important role in vaginal health. The hormone is responsible for keeping the vaginal walls thick, elastic and hydrated. As estrogen levels begin to decrease, many women report vaginal itching, burning and dryness, as well as thin and delicate vaginal tissue that causes pain during intercourse and/or bleeding or spotting.
MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation as a Menopause Treatment
MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive, non-surgical vaginal laser rejuvenation system that stands out as an innovative menopause treatment for the unwanted effects of aging on a woman’s vaginal tissue.
The technology involved in MonaLisa Touch allows physicians to restore trophic conditions in the vulvovaginal area through the use of controlled CO2 laser energy. The laser energy is controlled by an appropriate computer system that effectively regenerates the vaginal tissue by inducing the production of new collagen. By using this technology, the physicians at Mona Lisa Partners are able to restore vaginal tissue hydration and elasticity in a painless and efficient manner.
This menopause treatment enables women to regain their vaginal health without the need of daily creams and moisturizers, hormone treatments or a surgical vaginal rejuvenation. The treatment is virtually painless and is performed in-office. The protocol for MonaLisa Touch involves three separate sessions that are spaced six weeks apart. Many women report improved vaginal health after just one treatment.
