Are You a Candidate for the MonaLisa Touch?

You might have heard of this life-changing treatment before: the MonaLisa Touch. It might have appealed to you and now you want to know if you are a candidate for it. Well, you’re in luck! This blog aims to help you understand if you can have this treatment.

 

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

The MonaLisa Touch is a state-of-the-art laser treatment designed to rejuvenate a woman’s vaginal and sexual health. In addition to its purpose, this treatment is also performed in the clinic – non-hormonal, no anesthesia, and no downtime required.

 

To know if you are a candidate, you must be experiencing one or more of these symptoms:

 

Vaginal Dryness

Regular intercourse and appropriate pH as well as blood flows produce natural lubrication for the vagina. As women age, there is a decrease in blood flow so intercourse can become painful. These changes continue over time.

 

Vaginal Itching

Vaginal itching or irritation can be associated with infections like yeast. As a woman ages, however, estrogen levels fall and the tissue of the vagina thins, causing the bacteria change. When tissue thins and the blood flow decreases, the vagina will feel itchy due to its dryness.

 

Sore Vagina

As women go through menopause and estrogen levels drop, the vagina is very much affected by the hormonal shift. The normal thickened tissue of the vagina becomes very thin, resulting to sore, painful intercourse. It can even cause bleeding at times.

 

Painful Intercourse

As mentioned earlier, once the estrogen levels drop and the vaginal tissue thins, there is a decrease in natural lubrication in the vagina. Odour might also change. All of these changes can result in painful intercourse since the natural wetness is gone and the thin dry tissue can be painful with contact and friction.

 

Mild Incontinence

Tissues in the body need estrogen to maintain their integrity – the vaginal tissue is no exception. With the drop in estrogen levels, thinning of the vagina, and changes in the blood flow, these changes can also affect the strength of the bladder. Some women might experience an increase in urine loss with sneezing, coughing and exercising.

 

How can the MonaLisa Touch help?

 

With the MonaLisa Touch, all these symptoms can be relieved because this laser treatment promotes changes to the vagina that can increase the blood flow, thicken vaginal tissue, and restore the normal bacteria.

 

If you want to experience a permanent relief from the aforementioned symptoms, it is best to setup an appointment with Dr. Fay Weisberg for more information. Remember, no woman should suffer in silence. Get the help you need today.
