When intimacy that was once pleasurable becomes painful, it can understandably affect both your physical and emotional well-being. Sexual connection and desire are natural and healthy parts of life.
Women are often hesitant to talk about these changes with their provider, but vaginal atrophy is a very common symptom of menopause – and it’s highly treatable. MonaLisa Touch® can help restore your sexual health and empower you to experience the pain-free intimacy all women deserve.
Putting the Pleasure Back in Intimacy
As women age and go through menopause, estrogen levels naturally drop – often causing the vaginal wall to become thin, dry, and inflamed. This condition, known as vaginal atrophy, can make it increasingly uncomfortable or painful to engage in penetrative sex.
MonaLisa Touch® triggers your body’s healing response; boosting collagen and elastin production, thickening the vaginal wall, and increasing blood flow. By improving the underlying health of the vaginal tissue, you’ll experience a much needed increase in natural lubrication – no messy creams or daily prescriptions needed.
Simple. Safe. Clinically Proven.
MonaLisa Touch® is a virtually painless and minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to treat the causes of painful intercouse and other common symptoms of menopause – including mild urinary incontinence. The convenient in-office procedure consists of three 5-minute treatments, scheduled at 6 week intervals – no anesthesia or downtime needed.
Quick Improvement. Long-lasting Results.
It’s necessary to complete all 3 initial sessions, but most women experience significant improvement after the first session and see maximum improvement within 3 months. It’s simple to maintain symptom relief – a once yearly follow-up treatment will ensure intimacy remains pain-free.
What can you expect during treatment?
Many of our providers are specially-trained to perform the MonaLisa Touch® procedure. Treatment will take place in the comfort of our offices and the active lasering will typically last less than 5 minutes.
- A pelvic exam is first performed to ensure you are a good candidate and don’t have any active infections.
- A light numbing cream is applied to vaginal opening and vulva.
- A sterile insertion ring is placed to prevent the laser from rubbing against your labia.
- A wand-shaped laser will deliver gentle energy pulses to treatment areas – usually both the internal vaginal skin and outer vulva skin. The active treatment lasts approximately 5 minutes and patients report feeling painless bursts of vibrations.
Most women find they don’t need any downtime or experience any pain after treatment. You may need to refrain from sexual activity for a few days, but your provider will guide your aftercare based on your individual needs.
We believe in empowering women to experience the pleasure and intimate connection they deserve. Take the first step in restoring your sexual health – you’re worth it.
MonaLisa Touch® is performed at our downtown location. The office is easily accessible and includes free parking, ensuring your experience is comfortable and stress-free.
