Menopause can bring a variety of unwanted changes, including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. It can also impact your ability to enjoy sexual intimacy with your partner. That’s why the team at Connecticut Women OB/GYN is pleased to provide vaginal restoration therapy with state-of-the-art MonaLisa Touch® nonsurgical laser treatments. The practice has locations in South Windsor, West Hartford, and Enfield, Connecticut.
MonaLisa Touch is an advanced fractional CO2 laser technology specifically designed to rejuvenate the tissues that line your vaginal canal. It’s the safest, most effective nonsurgical and nonmedicinal option for the treatment and prevention of vaginal atrophy and its aftereffects.
During the procedure, your doctor will use a vaginal probe to ease the laser into your vagina. There, it emits gentle pulses of painless laser energy into the vaginal wall, where it activates the production of new collagen and revitalizes the vaginal mucosa.
MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are designed to help women who are experiencing vaginal dryness and other symptoms brought on by hormone-related changes. MonaLisa Touch is just as effective for women who have gone through natural menopause as it is for those whose menopause was induced with a hysterectomy. Women who’ve just given birth, are breast-feeding or have had cancer treatment can also suffer from this condition. It’s an especially good option for women who cannot receive hormone replacement therapy. The treatment can help with:
In just a few quick treatments, MonaLisa Touch can:
A single in-office treatment takes less than five minutes, and most women get the best results from three treatments, scheduled six weeks apart.
Many women report noticeable symptom relief after just one treatment, and more significant relief after each successive treatment.
As a gentle, noninvasive medical procedure, MonaLisa Touch has virtually no side effects and doesn’t require any down time, so you can resume your normal activities immediately after each treatment.
You should, however, refrain from sexual intercourse for two or three days to allow your vaginal tissues ample time to begin the healing process. Your Connecticut Women OB/GYN doctor can give you more specific post-procedure instructions, depending on your individual situation, if necessary.
Because some women require annual follow-up treatments to maintain their results, your gynecologist can let you know if annual treatments are best for you.
