MonaLisa Touch is a noninvasive treatment that restores vaginal comfort. It increases lubrication and restores tightness, so women can enjoy having sex again.
When a woman enters menopause, the body changes and can experience several not-so-pleasant symptoms. Vaginal dryness, for instance, which can be painful and make sexual intercourse extremely uncomfortable.
The MonaLisa Touch laser rejuvenates the tissues of the vaginal wall. The laser kick starts an increase in collagen production in the treated tissue. Collagen is the major protein in bodily tissues that leads to strength and resilience. Increased collagen restores vitality and elasticity to the vaginal area, making sexual intercourse pleasurable.
The laser penetrates through several layers of tissues and can even strengthen the bladder, eliminating or reducing urinary incontinence's effects.
As a woman ages, the amount of estrogen produced by her ovaries decreases. Vaginal dryness is just one of many symptoms associated with this reduction of hormones that peaks during menopause.
Along with vaginal dryness, many women start to notice a decrease in their sexual desire. The elasticity and hydration within the vagina also diminish. As the tissues continue to produce less fluid, they may begin to atrophy, making penetration painful.
Treatments with the MonaLisa Touch laser help to reverse the process and restore and rejuvenate the vaginal tissues.
With MonaLisa Touch, you can regain your sexual vitality and increase the pleasure you experience during intercourse.
This laser procedure is minimally invasive, using a small, sterile wand that Dr. Gonzalez uses to apply energy in and around your vagina. The wand can send energy waves in a 360-degree circle, ensuring all areas of the vagina are treated.
Because the laser goes directly into the tissue, it may improve conditions for patients experiencing urinary incontinence. MonaLisa Touch procedures offer little risk of infection, and patients can resume their daily activities within a few hours of the treatment.
Each procedure typically lasts only five minutes, and results can be felt relatively quickly. You’ll feel some warmth and pressure but no pain during your session.
