To understand why you’re experiencing these symptoms, let’s look at what might be causing them.
Causes of vaginal atrophy
Vaginal atrophy strikes when your estrogen levels drop, which typically occurs with age and the onset of menopause. But you can also experience symptoms of low estrogen due to:
- Hormone therapy
- Chemotherapy treatments
- Certain medications
- Radiation therapy
Determining the cause of your vaginal atrophy can help us make an accurate diagnosis and determine if MonaLisa Touch laser therapy is right for you.
Treatment with MonaLisa Touch
To treat your condition, you’ll recline on the table in your private room while your provider gently places a carbon dioxide laser into your vagina and glides it along your vaginal walls. This process triggers new blood vessels to grow and provokes collagen production in the targeted area, which improves elasticity and strengthens your delicate tissues.
The procedure is completely painless and doesn’t require any anesthesia. In fact, it’s so quick and easy, that you’ll only need about five or six minutes. In a few short weeks, you’ll begin to feel relief from your aggravating symptoms. For optimal results, we recommend a series of treatments over the course of a few weeks and months. At your consultation, we’ll work together to craft a plan so you know exactly what to expect.
