3 Reasons Women Are Loving MonaLisa Touch After Going Through Menopause

Women’s bodies are equipped to do amazing things throughout their reproductive years — grow and nourish a baby for nine months; give birth; and produce nutrient-rich breast milk that’s a perfect mix of everything a newborn needs to thrive.

On the flip side of that coin, women also go through some rather unpleasant experiences, like a monthly period, breast tenderness, and finally, at the end of your childbearing years, the troublesome symptoms of menopause.

At his practice, Tahoe Women’s Care in Carson City, Nevada, accomplished gynecologist Dr. Gary Willen helps women through every stage of life, so you can be your healthiest at any age. Dr. Willen understands the frustration and physical changes that come with menopause, which is why he offers the MonaLisa Touch® treatment. This revolutionary, nonsurgical laser technology can change the way you feel after menopause.

Here are three reasons women are loving the MonaLisa Touch after going through the physical changes of menopause.

Relieves vaginal dryness and tightens tissue

One of the unfortunate symptoms of menopause is vaginal dryness. While not every woman experiences vaginal atrophy — when vaginal tissue becomes dry, thinner, and loses lubrication and elasticity — an estimated 50-60% of women do.

If you’re one of these women, you know firsthand that vaginal atrophy causes physical and emotional frustration. Vaginal dryness makes it challenging to maintain a healthy intimate relationship, often making sex a painful, less enjoyable experience.

The MonaLisa Touch procedure helps relieve vaginal dryness, laxity, and painful sex by stimulating vaginal mucosa to regenerate collagen. The new collagen helps improve elasticity and enhances your natural lubrication. After just 1-3 quick, in-office treatments, many women experience less burning, pain, and dryness as well as a tightening of vaginal tissue.

A quick, painless procedure

If you’re experiencing the life-changing symptoms of menopause, a surgical procedure is probably not at the top of your list of treatment options. The MonaLisa Touch is a quick, in-office procedure that’s only minimally invasive. Dr. Willen uses a specially designed wand that safely delivers CO2 fractional laser energy directly to your internal vaginal tissue.

Treatments typically take just a few minutes and you don’t even need anesthesia. You may feel a slight stinging from the laser energy, but it’s highly tolerable and finishes quickly. Aside from taking a hot bath, working out, and having sex for the first few days afterward, you can resume your usual activities without downtime immediately following your MonaLisa Touch appointment.

Results can last up to a year

Everyone is different, but for many women, the effects of the MonaLisa Touch treatments last a year or even more, depending on the severity of your vaginal atrophy. Women who have the MonaLisa Touch procedure love the fact that after just a few treatments, they feel rejuvenated and more youthful again.

Their vaginal tissue becomes more like it was before giving birth, and before the unpleasant effects of menopause set in.

As an added bonus, MonaLisa Touch treatments can help improve your intimate life and even reduce the symptoms of mild urinary incontinence. Since the treatment stimulates new collagen production within your vaginal tissue, this production continues long after your last treatment, which is why you may enjoy the benefits for up to a year or even longer.

Dr. Willen can then recommend a yearly maintenance treatment schedule so you can continue to maintain your desired results and focus on enjoying your life, rather than on the changes your body endured.

If you’re one of the many women experiencing vaginal dryness, itching, burning, and other symptoms of lower estrogen levels after menopause, the MonaLisa Touch can help you feel like yourself again, both physically and emotionally.
