From periods and pregnancy to childbirth and menopause, your vagina can go through quite a bit over the course of your lifetime. It’s no wonder then that 15% of women experience vaginal issues before menopause and a whopping 57% have trouble down there during and after menopause.
But just because vaginal problems are common, that doesn’t mean you have to accept them. Far too many women are quick to surrender to the changes that life brings without exploring their options.
That's where we come in.
Our team of dedicated, compassionate medical professionals at The Well for Health in Davidson, North Carolina, want better for women. So we provide the best, most advanced technologies that offer a fast, safe way back to your sexual health glory days.
Here’s what you should know about MonaLisa Touch®.
What’s happened to my vagina?
Before we dive into how MonaLisa Touch can restore your sexual health, let’s talk about what’s actually going on in your nether regions.
First and foremost, you should know that the vast majority of vaginal problems (especially those that occur later in life) stem from changes in your hormone levels. Women go through many hormonal changes throughout their lifetime, but none of them compare to menopause.
Typically, the transition to menopause begins between ages 45-55 and lasts for anywhere from 7-14 years. Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycle.
The sharp drop in your estrogen levels triggers a slew of frustrating (and often embarrassing symptoms), including mood changes, night sweats, hot flashes, and — you guessed it — vaginal problems.
That’s because the tissues of your vulva and the lining of your vagina rely on a steady supply of estrogen to keep up production of collagen and elastin.
What are collagen and elastin? You’ve likely heard them tossed around as beauty buzzwords, and there's a good reason for it. Collagen and elastin are proteins found in your skin and tissues that maintain shape, texture, firmness, and elasticity.
Over time and as the result of hormonal changes, you gradually lose collagen and elastin, and your vagina suffers for it. Many women experience one or more of the following:
- Painful intercourse
- More frequent yeast infections
- Sagging vaginal tissue
To top it all off, the very symptoms that make it difficult (or impossible) for you to have sex can cause even more problems. The less sex you have, the shorter and narrower your vaginal canal becomes, making your vagina even more vulnerable and fragile.
So what’s a girl to do?
You can try Kegel exercises, buy up all the lubricant, and try to manage your symptoms on your own, but if you want to truly find relief, you have to address the problem from the inside out with MonaLisa Touch.
MonaLisa Touch uses laser technology specifically designed for vaginal restoration. We direct the lasers onto your vaginal walls, where they cause micro-injuries in the surface tissues. As a result, your body kicks itself into healing mode and begins creating new collagen fibers.
Bonus: MonaLisa touch improves the pH balance in your vagina, which keeps infections at bay.
Why should I trust MonaLisa Touch?
Trying a new treatment can be overwhelming, especially a treatment that involves lasers, but there’s a reason why our patients call MonaLisa Touch life-changing. Here’s a closer look at what this advanced technology has to offer.
Treatment is quick and painless
Because MonaLisa uses high-tech, medical-grade lasers, there’s no need for scalpels, incisions, or anesthesia. In fact, most treatments only take a few minutes.
You may be a bit sore at the treatment site for the first few days after treatment, but after those mild side effects subside, you can get right back to your normal activities.
MonaLisa does it all
Whether you’re dealing with one big, frustrating problem or you’re experiencing the whole spectrum of vaginal issues, MonaLisa Touch is likely an option for you. Talk to us about everything you’re concerned about, and we’ll help you make the best decision.
Results develop quickly
By far this is the best part about MonaLisa Touch: Your body starts making collagen after just one treatment. That means you could see improvement within the first few weeks. We do recommend a series of treatments (up to three spaced 40-60 days apart) based on the nature of your symptoms.
