Have you had difficulty finding an effective and convenient treatment for your vaginal dryness? Has menopause, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or cancer treatment left you with pain and other uncomfortable changes in your feminine health?
Millions of women suffer from the effects of hormonal changes resulting in symptoms that can have a disruptive effect on quality of life. For many, it can seem like a life sentence. Countless women have suffered silently with their symptoms. Others have sought help only to find limited options. Thanks to MonaLisa Touch, many women right here in the Mountain View area are finding restoration and relief that was once thought impossible.
Hope for Vaginal Aging and Post-Partum Sexuality
Have you noticed your vaginal tissues becoming thin, dry, and sensitive with age? During menopause, changes in estrogen levels cause unwelcome symptoms in a woman’s body. One of them – vaginal dryness – affects approximately half of all women going through “the change.” However, menopausal women are not the only ones who endure the effects of hormonal change; younger women – particularly those who have recently given birth – can, too.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can be very special experiences, but their effects can wreak havoc on a woman’s sexuality. Low levels of estrogen after pregnancy can cause the vaginal tissues to remain thin long after childbirth. In addition, it can take many months for a breastfeeding woman to return to fertility, during which time she many feel uncomfortably dry. All of this can spell disaster for post-partum sexuality.
The discomfort that hormonal change causes is often not talked about, with some women shying away from discussing their symptoms even with doctors. Our goal is to open up the conversation about vaginal dryness and offer a safe, non-hormonal treatment designed to help women feel like themselves again.
About MonaLisa Touch
MonaLisa Touch is an FDA-approved and minimally-invasive treatment that utilizes a gentle fractional CO2 laser to stimulate collagen in the vaginal walls and promote spontaneous, natural lubrication in the genital area. Much like an annual pelvic exam, patients experience virtually no discomfort as the probe delivers gentle energy pulses directly to the affected area.
MonaLisa Touch is both safe and convenient, with minimal risks involved with the procedure. The entire process takes place from the comfort of our office, with three five-minute treatments taking place approximately six weeks apart. After the third MonaLisa Touch treatment, patients need only come in for a single follow-up treatment once per year.
MonaLisa Touch sessions are painless and require no anesthesia. Following a treatment, some patients may experience some mild tenderness, irritation, or swelling at the treatment site, although this discomfort is easily managed and typically subsides within one to two days.
