The MonaLisa Touch can be a great procedure for you if you suffer from vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy is basically when the walls of your vagina begin to degrade due to a lack of estrogen in your body. When you’re going through menopause, the chances of suffering from vaginal atrophy increase significantly.
Some common signs that you may be suffering from vaginal atrophy include:
If you’re suffering from any of the above symptoms, you should call Dr. Kothandaraman and have yourself checked as soon as possible. After Dr. Kothandaraman determines the problem, you can discuss whether the MonaLisa Touch is the right procedure for you or not.
The MonaLisa Touch is a procedure that uses a fractional carbon dioxide laser with a vaginal probe attached to it in order to deliver the perfect amount of heat to your genital region. This procedure can significantly help speed up the repair of your vaginal walls and can also increase the elastin, collagen, and moisture production by your vaginal tissue.
You should discuss your previous medical history with your doctor before deciding to go through with this procedure.
The MonaLisa Touch is a very brief procedure that only takes around five minutes for your OB/GYN to carry out. However, most treatments require you to come back 3-5 times, with each procedure being roughly 5-6 weeks apart.
The process is not only very quick but the recovery time is very quick as well. You should feel perfectly fine as soon as the procedure is over. However, you should refrain from sexual activity for at least three days after undergoing the MonaLisa Touch in order to reap the maximum amount of benefits from the procedure.
If you have vaginal or vulvar atrophy, you should call Prema Kothandaraman, MD, today in order to inquire about your vaginal health.
