MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation Overview
It is reported 2 out of 5 post-menopausal women experience vaginal discomfort, including dryness, itching and burning. These uncomfortable side effects of vaginal aging, also known as vaginal atrophy, are caused by the vagina walls becoming thinner and the natural blood supply and elasticity becoming reduced from lower estrogen levels after menopause. Women in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area suffering from painful vaginal discomfort now have a vaginal atrophy treatment available to them. Mona Lisa Partners offers MonaLisa Touch™ vaginal rejuvenation, a fast, simple and safe procedure designed to improve long-term vaginal health.
What is Vaginal Atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy, otherwise known as vaginal aging, is reported to affect approximately 40% of menopausal and post-menopausal women. As the body ages, the walls of the vagina become thinner and the natural blood supply and elasticity becomes reduced, leading to the protective mucosa of the vagina losing hydration and thickness. The changes in the vagina’s pH level can then cause a number of physical effects, including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal itching
- Vaginal burning
- Pain during sexual intercourse
MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation as a Vaginal Atrophy Treatment
In the past, women requiring vaginal atrophy treatment had to make lifestyle changes and use therapeutic creams, such as vaginal estrogen cream, to help reduce vaginal discomfort. Treatment effectiveness was highly dependent on the patient’s willingness to strictly follow treatment guidelines, with numerous patients experiencing only short-term benefits. All of that has changed with MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation.
MonaLisa Touch is a non-invasive procedure that helps improve long-term health of the vaginal tissue. The vaginal atrophy treatment is performed by one of the practitioners at Mona Lisa Partners by using a safe and effective laser. Through the use of a CO2 laser, controlled energy is delivered to the vaginal tissue. This energy is used to revitalize the cells in the vaginal mucosa, or vaginal tissue, to help produce additional collagen. Collagen is an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health.
MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation is virtually painless and takes less than five minutes to perform during an office visit. Some patients may experience minimal discomfort the first time the probe is inserted into the vaginal canal, but the treatment itself is not painful. Patients will receive 3 separate treatments, each vaginal atrophy treatment spaced six weeks apart.
