Are you among the millions of women who experience vaginal atrophy symptoms due to menopause, cancer treatment, or a recent oophorectomy procedure? Thanks to the MonaLisa Touch procedure, relief is possible. Dr. Rania Ibrahim, a female gynecologist in The Woodlands, TX, offers this fast and painless fractional CO2 laser treatment to treat vaginal discomfort in women. Vaginal atrophy symptoms may include dryness, itching, pain or discomfort during intercourse, and vaginal laxity, all as a result of having less estrogen in your body. A non-hormonal approach, the MonaLisa Touch is an intra-vaginal Laster treatment that helps improve your vaginal atrophy symptoms by building healthier vaginal wall tissue and boosting collagen production within the tissue, with long-term results.
The purpose of the MonaLisa Touch procedure is to improve the health of your vaginal tissue, ultimately alleviating vaginal atrophy symptoms. The procedure is minimally invasive and the laser portion lasts only about three minutes with little or no pain. By using a fractional CO2 laser, targeted points, or layers, of the vaginal wall tissue are removed during this quick procedure, allowing you to feel like your best self, without the necessity of anesthesia. After receiving the treatment, your body begins to create new, healthy tissue at each laser point. Patients who have experienced the procedure describe the actual laser portion of the procedure as a mild vibration and experience minimal pain.
The MonaLisa Touch procedure was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2014 as a safe and effective means for treating vaginal atrophy symptoms. Patients report an improvement in symptoms after just one week of receiving the treatment, with many women experiencing relief in as little as one to two days post-treatment.
By getting routine gynecological examinations and yearly maintenance treatments, vaginal atrophy symptoms no longer have to be a part of your daily life or serve as additional stress in your personal life. Dr. Ibrahim is excited to provide women in The Woodlands, TX area a safe and long-term solution to vaginal atrophy symptoms.
