MonaLisa Touch® Laser Therapy for Vaginal Dryness: What to Expect

MonaLisa Touch® Laser Therapy for Vaginal Dryness: What to Expect

Estrogen receptors are found all over your skin, including in your vagina. These receptors, when estrogen is at an optimal level, maintain hydration and skin flexibility. The effects of low estrogen can be seen on the face as signs of aging appear. 

In women with low estrogen levels, whether caused by menopause or treatment for a condition, vaginal atrophy may occur. With vaginal atrophy, the skin loses its ability to stay hydrated and flexible, and intercourse can become uncomfortable or even painful.
