If pain, dryness or a lack of sensation is ruining your sex life, you’re definitely not alone! Pain contributes to decreased sexual desire, which results in a cycle of intimacy avoidance, further diminishing desire. And many women are too embarrassed to discuss this condition with their gynecologist.
The fact is that as you age, your vagina becomes smaller, drier and less likely to produce lubrication during sex. You may also begin experiencing discomfort, vaginal discharge, itching and/or urinary problems. All of these symptoms are related to a condition called vaginal atrophy, which has been linked to menopause and certain types of cancer.
MonaLisa Touch is the first intra-vaginal laser treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It was designed to treat vaginal atrophy – a condition typically activated by menopause – in which the walls of the vagina become thin and dry out, making intercourse painful and often causing urinary incontinence.
MonaLisa Touch™ is designed to provide relief from:
The MonaLisa Touch procedure lessens the symptoms of vaginal atrophy by utilizing a small laser that boosts collagen production inside the vagina, while restoring the vaginal mucous membrane and rehydrating the vaginal walls. As with typical laser treatments, this form of intra-vaginal laser treatment does not require anesthesia and side effects are minimal.
The laser works by separating a laser beam into a series of small dots that are pointed toward the inside vagina wall. The laser pulses for less than a tenth of second, during which time the strength of the pulses are monitored via computer to help mimic the characteristics of the existing vaginal wall.
At the point of contact, the laser removes a tiny section of tissue, creating a pinhole similar to a human hair in diameter. As the body mends itself, it stimulates cells to create healthy new tissue at the area of the dot and the surrounding flesh.
Treatment with MonaLisa Touch results in revitalized, elastic healthy tissue with minimal disturbance. Improved blood flow and tissue tone relieves pain and improves sexual enjoyment and urinary function.
For women who suffer from vaginal atrophy, the introduction of the MonaLisa Touch marks the first time they will have access to safe medical technology that can ease their symptoms.
Dr. Rania Ibrahim is thrilled to offer this cutting edge technology to her patients throughout the Conroe, TX area.
