Is The MonaLisa Touch Procedure Right for You?
Vaginal dryness is one of the main symptom of vaginal atrophy- the thinning of skin that lines the vaginal walls. This occurs during menopause and peaks at about 4 years after your last period. Prior to menopause, the vaginal lining appears plump, healthy, and moist. As estrogen levels decline, the lining of the vagina becomes thinner, more dry, becomes pale, and less elastic. MonaLisa Touch helps restore the tissues to a pre-menopausal state.
At menopause, decreased thickness and less collagen in the skin along with less blood supply due to low levels of estrogen can cause the tissues of the vulva and the lining of the vagina to become thinner, drier, and less flexible. Vaginal moisture is reduced, along with decreased lubrication. Vaginal atrophy also leads to in an increase in vaginal pH, which makes the vagina less acidic. That's not the healthy state of the vagina which is normally at a pH of 3.5. The combination of these factors often leads to vaginal burning and discomfort, and more prone to vaginitis.
With the loss of estrogen, the skin around your vulva and vagina becomes more sensitive and more likely to itch. This can occur before and during menopause. This often leads to scratching, which then makes your skin more itchy, you scratch moreand so on. This is called the itch/scratch cycle and it's difficult to break. Most women experience significant and benefits after their MonaLisa Touch treatment series. 3 treatments, 6 weeks apart and then just once a year.
At menopause there is a dramatic drop in the hormone levels. Estrogen has many functions, especially on the vagina, bladder and urethra. It also helps keep skin, bones, your brain , the vagina,bladder and the urethra healthy. The lack of estrogen may also cause the pelvic and bladder-control muscles to become weak, resulting in unexpected urine loss (incontinence.) Improving the blood supply, collagen, elastin and overall health of the vagina, bladder neck and surrounding structures can restore these tissues to their healthy pre-menopausal state and function.

It is virtually painless and requires no incisions or sutures and it requires 5-6 minutes (we aim for 30 minutes from your arrival to your departure from our office) for each of the 3 session. No need for any anesthesia, but an anesthetic cream is available.
During the recovery process, only a few woman have reported a slight localized discomfort following the laser treatment and during the first few days after the session. Many have reported to have resumed all of their normal routine after one to three days. It might be recommended to avoid lifting weights or some activities, such as taking a hot bath or physical exercises for a few days.
