Women’s Care of Beverly Hills offers the MonaLisa Touch as an outpatient procedure in their comfortable and welcoming offices.
Your body goes through many changes during pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause that can lead to disruptive symptoms. While pregnancy and childbirth put significant physical stress on your pelvic floor and vaginal tissue, menopause brings a reduction in your estrogen levels, which can also weaken your pelvic floor.
Vaginal atrophy is a common side effect of menopause. Your vaginal tissue becomes thin, dry, and weak as your hormones decrease. It leads to symptoms including:
Millions of women are suffering from vulvovaginal atrophy. Over half of postmenopausal women suffer from symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy, which include vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, vaginal burning and itching, and urinary symptoms. 60% of postmenopausal women who cannot take HRT, including patients with a history of breast or gynecologic cancers, will have these symptoms. These women struggle with these symptoms because they may not be candidates for hormonal therapies. Non-hormonal treatment options thus far have been limited to over-the-counter lubricants.
If you’re suffering from these symptoms and can’t or don’t want to use hormone replacement therapy, MonaLisa Touch laser treatments may be an excellent option to restore your vaginal health and enhance your overall quality of life.
MonaLisa Touch treatments only take five minutes and are usually well tolerated. During your procedure, you recline on a treatment table with your feet in stirrups, much like you would during your annual pelvic exam. Your Women’s Care of Beverly Hills provider inserts the MonaLisa Touch device into your vagina and turns on the energy pulse. You may notice a warming sensation during your treatment.
After your treatment, you can return to your regular activities, although you should avoid sexual activity for two or three days. You may notice an improvement after just one treatment, but most patients have a series of at least three treatments to achieve optimal results. You may also have annual touch-up appointments to maintain the effects.
The MonaLisa Touch is just one part of a trio of pelvic treatments. Women’s Care of Beverly Hills also provides Emsella® and Votiva® procedures to improve your urinary continence and enhance your orgasms.
If you’re experiencing disruptive symptoms such as vaginal dryness and painful sex, call Women’s Care of Beverly Hills to schedule an appointment or book an appointment online today.
