VAGINAL ATROPHY – if you have it you know why it’s in all caps, if you don’t – rejoice. Vaginal atrophy is not terminal – except possibly to your sex life. This doesn’t have to be the case. Optimal Health is very excited to offer a new option for treating this problem:
Vaginal atrophy is the thinning and drying of the vaginal walls due to less estrogen being produced in the body. This usually occurs due to menopause or cancer treatments. The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure for treating vaginal atrophy that is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. The MonaLisa counteracts vaginal atrophy with a small fractal laser that stimulates collagen production in the vagina thus naturally restoring vaginal mucosa and rehydrating the vaginal walls.
The MonaLisa laser is a great option for any women experiencing vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse due to poor lubrication or elasticity, lost of orgasmic function, post-menopausal recurrent vaginal/urinary tract infection or irritative bladder symptoms. It is especially exciting for those who do not want to use hormone therapy or for those that hormone replacement therapy is contraindicated. The intravaginal laser treatment directly targets the symptoms of vaginal atrophy instead of altering hormone levels. The treatment returns the vagina and the surrounding tissues to normal.
This treatment works almost 100 percent of the time, takes about 5 minutes and there is no recovery period. Patients will need 3 sessions to get long term results.
This procedure has been used successfully throughout Europe since 2010 and is FDA approved in the United States.
