Put Unpleasant Menopause Symptoms Behind You With MonaLisa Touch Therapy

Women going through menopause and perimenopause often talk about uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and weight gain. There are a lot of symptoms women don’t talk about, though. These include vaginal dryness, itching, and sexual discomfort and pain. You’re not alone if you experience these embarrassing and life-altering symptoms. 

At Urological Associates in Charlottesville, Virginia, we have an answer. Our doctors offer MonaLisa Touch® — a revolutionary procedure that provides a noninvasive way to reinvigorate vaginal tissue and help you enjoy your romantic life as well as relieve day-to-day vaginal discomfort. Read on to learn how you can benefit from this simple treatment.

Hormones and vaginal atrophy

Menopause is defined as going an entire year (12 months) without ovulation or a period. Perimenopause describes the years leading up to menopause. As you approach menopause and move through this change of life, you experience dramatic shifts in your hormone levels, namely estrogen. Estrogen contributes greatly to vaginal health, so when it fluctuates or drops severely, your tissue suffers.

You experience these symptoms whether you came about menopause naturally or if you had your uterus surgically removed in a hysterectomy or underwent chemical menopause due to medical treatment.

Symptoms you may experience related to menopause include:

These symptoms can make you feel self-conscious, experience discomfort, and interfere with your romantic relationship. Atrophying tissue can also lead to mild urinary incontinence that can be embarrassing and inconvenient.

MonaLisa Touch to the rescue

MonaLisa Touch is a simple laser treatment that can help you overcome unpleasant menopause symptoms that affect your vaginal comfort. The treatments, as noted by many patients, can literally change your life.

During treatment, you lie on an exam table as a sterile vaginal probe glides around the outer area and inside of your vagina. The laser energy helps stimulate collagen growth to increase tissue strength and resiliency. Treatments are performed in our office and take just five minutes to provide super healing and relief from unpleasant menopause symptoms. MonaLisa Touch essentially stimulates your body to heal itself.

The impact of MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch restores resiliency to your vaginal tissue and improves circulation and moisture. You experience less dryness and more pleasure during intercourse. Plus, improved tissue strength can resolve issues with urinary incontinence in many cases.

The procedure involves no hormones, so it’s safe for those who can’t take hormone therapy or prefer not to. MonaLisa Touch has no side effects, either. You can resume all normal activity following a treatment session, but should avoid sexual intercourse for a few days.

Although you may notice improvements after just one session, our doctors  recommend three total sessions, spaced about six weeks apart for optimal effect. You may also benefit from a yearly maintenance treatment.

If you’re ready to say good-bye to uncomfortable menopause symptoms and resume your quality of (sex) life, call Urological Associates or schedule a consultation online today. Learn more about how MonaLisa Touch can revolutionize your menopause experience.
