MonaLisa Touch is a revolutionary, noninvasive laser treatment for a woman’s intimate areas. Fractional laser energy enhances the body’s ability to generate new cells, thereby reducing vaginal dryness and painful intercourse to improve your sex life.
The in-office procedure uses gentle laser energy to stimulate a healing response while promoting collagen growth in vaginal tissues. It is well-tolerated by patients, so most don’t need anesthesia.
MonaLisa Touch treatments at Westlake Women’s Health Specialists offer numerous benefits for women. Examples include:
MonaLisa Touch is a quick in-office procedure you can complete during your lunch break. It often produces dramatic results without any cutting, surgery, or needles.
To find out if treating vaginal dryness and painful intercourse with MonaLisa Touch is the right procedure for you, Dr. Mandelman reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and discusses your desired outcome. She completes a physical examination and lets you know what to expect during the procedure.
You might experience vaginal dryness and painful sex because of getting older, menopause, or a hormone imbalance.
During laser treatment with MonaLisa Touch, you relax on a comfortable exam table. Your provider applies a handheld device to your intimate areas for about five minutes. The procedure is virtually pain-free, but you do have an option for local anesthetic if you’d like.
After each treatment, there’s little to no downtime, so you can resume most activities right away. Dr. Mandelman may recommend you abstain from engaging in sex and strenuous exercise for a few days. She personalizes each treatment and often recommends a series, with periodic maintenance sessions, to give you the best outcome.
In addition to Mona Lisa Touch treatments, other options can be explored for vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Vaginal hormonal creams and suppositories, vaginal DHEA, and oral medications, like Osphena, may be other good options for vaginal dryness and painful intercourse.
Don’t live with painful sex and vaginal dryness when there are treatment options that are fast, painless, and highly effective for women of all ages. Schedule an appointment with Westlake Women’s Health Specialists by phone or book online today.
