What causes vaginal dryness?
The most common cause of vaginal dryness is the drop in estrogen levels due to menopause. More than 50% of women in menopause or perimenopause experience vaginal symptoms, including dryness, pain, itchiness, or burning.
How can you treat vaginal dryness?
Traditionally, doctors have treated post-menopausal vaginal dryness with hormone replacement therapy. Since estrogen is the hormone that’s responsible for keeping the vagina lubricated and healthy, the natural treatment would be the replacement of the estrogen, which decreases during menopause.
However, more and more doctors have veered away from estrogen replacement therapy due to concerns over increasing breast cancer risks, as well as the risk of stroke, heart disease, and blood clots.
Family Health Care Aesthetics offers the newest method to treat vaginal dryness that doesn’t involve medication, surgery, or the risks that come with hormone replacement therapy. The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment restores vaginal elasticity and natural lubrication in just 40 minutes with a simple, painless procedure.
How does the MonaLisa Touch laser treat vaginal dryness?
The MonaLisa Touch laser painlessly emits fractional CO2 laser pulses into the walls of the vagina. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in rehydration and restoration of functional tissue. After treatment, you’ll have a more firmly structured vaginal region with a healthier natural lubrication system.
What should I expect after treatment?
MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is quick and requires no recovery time. There are no side effects, although your provider may recommend you refrain from sexual intercourse for seven days.
Following your initial treatment, you will return in about six weeks for a follow-up treatment, and again for a third treatment about six weeks after that. Depending on your results and your provider’s recommendation, you might get an annual treatment to maintain vaginal health.
Most women experience symptom relief immediately after the procedure and find even greater improvement after each of the follow-up treatments.
