Learn more on how we can help with the following conditions:

Vaginal Dryness
Natural lubrication of the vagina is a result of a healthy and youthful vagina. As women age, hormones drop, blood flow to the vagina decreases and lubrication will be reduced. Therefore, intercourse can become painful. Over the counter products can be used but are usually less than ideal. These changes continue over time. Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch laser reverses these changes and stimulates blood flow and collagen to the vagina. Women can continue to enjoy intercourse as lubrication is natural, PH balance goes back to normal and they can continue to produce adequate lubrication.
Sore Vagina
As a women goes through menopause and estrogen levels fall, the vagina, which is rich in receptors for estrogen, is often very much affected by the hormonal shift. The normal thickened, lush tissue of the vagina becomes very thin, almost like parchment paper, and as a result, with intercourse will become sore, painful and often bleeds. By thickening the tissue, restoring good blood flow and collagen, the laser treatment reverses these changes and renews the vagina back to its pre-menopausal state.
Vaginal Itch and Lichen Sclerosus
Vaginal itching or discomfort is often associated with infections, namely yeast. However, as a woman ages, and estrogen levels fall, the tissue of the vagina thins and the bacteria change. The tissue thins and blood flow decreases that could cause the vagina to feel itchy due to its dryness, similar to dry skin elsewhere on the body that causes an itchy sensation. Following MonaLisa Touch laser treatment, the vaginal tissue thickens and blood flow and collagen is restored to alleviate the itch and discomfort. There is also evidence that MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser therapy used externally on the vulvar tissue can improve and relieve symptoms of lichen sclerosus significantly.
Painful Intercourse
As women age and their estrogen levels fall, the vagina becomes thin, blood flow decreases, which decreases natural lubrication, and the normal bacteria change that can cause changes in odor. All of these together can result in painful intercourse, as the natural wetness is gone and the thin dry tissue is painful (and can bleed) with contact and friction. The MonaLisa Touch laser promotes changes to the vagina that increase blood flow, restore the normal bacteria and thicken tissue to decrease or eliminate the pain with intercourse.
Mild Incontinence
Many tissues in the body require estrogen to maintain their integrity. The vagina is no exception. As women age, and they lose their estrogen, the walls of the vagina thin, blood flow changes and tissue weakens. These changes may also affect the function of the bladder. By increasing blood flow to the vagina, the bladder base also improves in cellular structure and thickness. Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch laser can improve urinary frequency, bladder control and mild incontinence in post menopausal women.
