If you suffer from vaginal atrophy, you are not alone. Many women, especially menopausal and post-menopausal women, suffer from the effects of vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy, caused by a decrease in estrogen, causes symptoms such as vaginal dryness, burning, and itching, as well as decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity and painful intercourse. Vaginal atrophy can even lead to shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal.
In the past, women who suffered from vaginal atrophy had limited options. Hormone therapy was, and still is, an option to treat this illness. However, some women cannot – or are not willing – to use hormones which may increase their risk for heart attacks, breast cancer and strokes. Fortunately, there is a new, nonsurgical procedure, the Mona Lisa Touch, for treating the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
Introducing Mona Lisa Touch
Mona Lisa Touch is a revolutionary new vaginal rejuvenation procedure that can treat vaginal atrophy and its many symptoms. Using an advanced medical laser, MonaLisa Touch stimulates the vaginal tissue with a controlled energy pulse, causing an increase in collagen production, which is essential to healthy vaginal cells.
The secret is in the two-part laser pulse. MonaLisa Touch uses targeted CO2 laser energy to stimulate both the surface (epithelial) tissue and the underlying deep tissue (lamina propria). The fractioned light beams penetrate and create small wounds in the epithelial layer, triggering the production of collagen.
MonaLisa Touch is minimally invasive and very fast. Each laser session lasts about five minutes, and the entire treatment process only requires three sessions. Mona Lisa Touch Procedure also provides results quickly; after the first session, you will begin to see improvement! Of course, the procedure is virtually painless, which puts many women’s mind at ease.
Benefits of MonaLisa Touch
Treating vaginal atrophy with MonaLisa Touch is a great option for many women. Hormone treatments can have side effects, or be altogether impossible because of another condition. Surgical treatment requires a longer recovery period, and some women simply do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure. MonaLisa Touch brings a new treatment method for women who do not want to – or cannot – treat their vaginal atrophy with another method.
Vaginal atrophy can cause debilitating symptoms, and is especially disruptive to sexual health. The vaginal revitalization provided by MonaLisa Touch can cure vaginal dryness and pain associated with intercourse, leading to a more fulfilling and enjoyable sex life.
