Restoring Your Vagina With MonaLisa Touch
Declining or fluctuating estrogen levels that can occur with perimenopause, menopause, and post childbirth can lead to unpleasant vaginal symptoms that women are reluctant to talk about, but that greatly affect their quality of life. Vaginal atrophy negatively affects the lives of about 75% of women going through hormonal changes.
It doesn’t matter if your menopause occurred naturally with age or was surgically or medically induced through hysterectomy or cancer treatment. You may still suffer the effects of declining hormone levels.
These include symptoms of dryness, itching, and pain with intimacy. Even urinary incontinence can result when estrogen levels decline and vaginal tissue thins. In the vast majority of cases, women don’t recognize these as a chronic, but correctable condition. But, you can restore vaginal comfort with a simple laser treatment.
Dr. Macey can help you overcome these symptoms with the revolutionary, nonsurgical and nonhormonal MonaLisa Touch treatment. Learn more about how this vaginal laser can, in the words of many patients, change your life.
The MonaLisa Touch effect
MonaLisa Touch supplies laser energy to the atrophied tissue of the vaginal wall. The laser stimulates the development of new collagen, a skin-strengthening compound, which results in healthier, more moist tissue. Basically, MonaLisa Touch triggers your body’s natural healing response.
About the MonaLisa Touch procedure
Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch takes just about five minutes and is performed in-office. Dr. Macey uses the special sterile wand to apply gentle laser energy to the tissue inside and around the vaginal opening. You feel a gentle warming during the treatment, but it’s well-tolerated by patients and not painful.
The treatment has virtually no side effects. You can resume all your normal activities following a session but should refrain from sexual intercourse for a few days. You notice positive effects after just one treatment, but for optimal results, plan on three sessions total, spaced about six weeks apart.
To maintain your results, Dr. Macey suggests you do a follow-up treatment once per year.
The effects of MonaLisa Touch
Being uncomfortable during sexual intercourse can interfere with relationships. You may feel self-conscious or even avoid sex altogether because it hurts. MonaLisa Touch restores your sexual pleasure, so you can enjoy intimacy again.
MonaLisa Touch also involves no hormones, which can come with notable side effects. Some women, such as those with a high risk of breast cancer or those in remission from breast cancer, need to avoid hormones altogether because they can increase risk. MonaLisa Touch means these women don’t have to suffer the vaginal effects of perimenopause or menopause.
MonaLisa Touch has more than 18 published, clinical studies supporting its effectiveness. Hundreds of professionals in the field of female pelvic health believe in the ability of the laser treatment to restore the integrity of your vaginal tissue.
