A Laser Treatment for Vaginal Atrophy & Dryness?
- Posted on: Mar 25 2015
It’s true, Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is here…and YES it really does work! The MonaLisa Touch is an FDA approved procedure for the treatment of Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA), and we are excited to provide this life-changing treatment at the Dr. Shel Wellness & Medical Spa!
What is Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA)?
Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy is a thinning of the vaginal walls that occurs as estrogen levels drop during menopause. VVA is a common condition in menopausal women, and yet it has been a largely neglected symptom with limited treatment options, such as lubricants and creams. Many women are reluctant to discuss their concerns with their healthcare providers due to embarrassment, cultural taboos, fear that there are no available treatments, and concern about clinician reactions to discussion of intimate symptoms.
Common Symptoms of Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy:
- Painful intercourse
- Urinary Incontinence
- Frequent UTIs
- Increased Urinary Frequency and Urgency
How Does MonaLisa Work?
The MonaLisa Touch procedure uses a Laser to stimulate the mucosa, which regenerates and “rejuvenates” the vaginal tissue to a healthy state. The procedure is virtually painless and takes only a few minutes with no downtime. Treated patients can resume sexual activity after 48 hours. Most patients report a noticeable increase in lubrication and mucosal elasticity after the first treatment! For optimal results a course of 3 sessions is recommended spaced 6 weeks apart, with maintenance treatments once every year or as needed.
