VAGINAL DISCOMFORTS: Problems that Are Often Neglected, with Significant Impact on the Quality of Life
The drop in estrogen that comes with menopause or even during breastfeeding after delivery, causes a series of problems that have a severe impact on one’s social life and personal relationships. Among the most bothersome problems is atrophic vaginitis, which is the lack of nourishment and hydration of the cells of the vaginal mucosa. This condition causes a progressive thinning of the vaginal and vulvar mucosa which then becomes more delicate, sensitive, and more exposed to trauma.
Vaginal dryness, burning, and being constantly bothered are a result of atrophic vaginitis, which is often not spoken about because some consider it a natural consequence during menopause and after childbirth. Thanks to innovative laser techniques, this problem can now be prevented and resolved in a safe and painless way.
PAIN DURING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE (DYSPAREUNIA)
One after-effect of atrophic vaginitis is dyspareunia – pain during sexual intercourse. An atrophic vagina is thin, fragile, lacks elasticity, and above all is dry and unlubricated. This causes pain during sexual intercourse with a series of negative consequences regarding the couple’s relationship which lead to a lack of sexual desire and uneasy feelings during intimate moments with your partner.
Dyspareunia can also be caused by pain in the perineal region caused by scarring of the episiotomy or after a laceration from a spontaneous delivery.
Understanding the cause of the pain and using the latest generation laser treatment on the tissue is now the most effective way of resolving this symptom.
This is one of the most common feminine problems in women over 35 years of age which severely compromises their quality of life. There are various types and levels: from stress (laughing or coughing, lifting weight), urgency (involuntary loss of urine due to lack of control of the urination stimulus by the brain), mixed (incontinence from a combination of stress and urinary imperiosity) or from reflux (occurs when the bladder is so full that the internal pressure is greater than that of the urethra).
Embarrassment and shame prevent one from facing the problem, which one often bears with resignation but now there are finally state-of-the-art and minimally invasive treatments that can help resolve this problem.*
What is MonaLisa Touch?
The OB-Gyn and Incontinence Center is your primary choice for MonaLisa, The NEW LASER THERAPY FOR THE PREVENTION AND CARE OF YOUR VAGINAL HEALTH
MonaLisa Touch® is a functional vaginal treatment based on a special fractional CO2 laser, specifically created for the vaginal mucosa. It prevents and resolves estrogen drops in the vaginal tissue (typically occurring during menopause or after childbirth) by re-activating the production of new collagen and reestablishing the conditions that the vaginal mucosa once had. It is now the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its after-effects, which many women suffer from during menopause and after childbirth.
How Does it Work?
The MonaLisa Touch is a FRACTIONAL LASER: COMBINATION OF MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS OR PAIN.
The CO2 laser gently acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner, creating indistinguishable micro-lesions that are required for triggering a neocollagenesis process (production of new collagen) and reorganizing and re-equilibrating the components of the vaginal mucosa.
The laser’s action therefore safely and painlessly reactivates and reestablishes the proper function of the relative urogenital structures while also improving the symptoms associated with urinary dysfunction (mild incontinence due to stress).
A tissue regeneration process lasting numerous weeks is triggered, but stimulation occurs immediately and significant improvements can be seen even after the first treatment.
THE RESULTS: COMPLETE TISSUE REGENERATION STARTING FROM THE FIRST TREATMENT
The mucosa tissue thus becomes more nourished and hydrated and the epithelium becomes thicker, more toned (vaginal tightening), and elastic. It also reestablishes the correct vaginal pH, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces the risk of infection.
One simple treatment lasting only a few minutes, without pain, side effects, or recovery time, can give the tissue the tone and elasticity it once had, with positive effects on one’s quality of life and personal relationships.
