Vaginal Atrophy Treatment Overview
Vaginal health is a major concern in many Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area women undergoing the stages of menopause. It is reported up to 40% of postmenopausal women experience vaginal atrophy, the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to decreased estrogen levels. Many women suffering from vaginal changes, such as menopause dryness, report their sex life and love life are affected in a negative manner. Women do not have to live with declining vaginal health after menopause or post chemotherapy thanks to MonaLisa Touch™ a fast, simple and safe vaginal atrophy treatment available at Mona Lisa Partners.
What is Vaginal Atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is characterized as the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls, often caused by lower estrogen levels before, during and after menopause. Vaginal atrophy can make sexual intercourse for many women painful and can lead to numerous urinary tract complications.
Without estrogen production after menopause, the vaginal tissues become thin and less elastic. Menopause dryness is typically the first reported vaginal symptom, followed by an itching and/or burning sensation. Patients may also report burning and urgency with urination, increased urinary tract infections (UTIs), discomfort during sexual intercourse and light bleeding or spotting after intercourse.
MonaLisa Touch™ as a Vaginal Atrophy Treatment
Even though up to 40% of women experience vaginal atrophy symptoms, such as menopause dryness, only 20-25% of these women visit a physician for a vaginal atrophy treatment. Common treatment options prescribed by many physicians include lubricants, hormone lotions and oral medications some of which must be applied or taken daily. Unlike these options, MonaLisa Touch typically provides patients quick symptom relief and is clinically proven to provide long-lasting relief with few side effects and/or downtime.
MonaLisa Touch is an in-office, non-invasive procedure that helps improve long-term vaginal tissue health. With the use of a CO2 laser, controlled energy is delivered to the vaginal tissue through a probe. This energy is used to revitalize the cells in the vaginal tissue to help stimulate new collagen and blood flow. Collagen is an essential ingredient in all cell health.
MonaLisa Touch treatments are performed during a short in-office visit. Some patients may experience minimal discomfort the first time the probe is inserted into the vaginal canal, but the laser treatment itself is not painful. Patients should receive three separate treatments, with each treatment spaced six weeks apart.
