Mona Lisa Touch Vaginal and Vulvar Treatments are intended to help the changes associated with estrogen decline such as seen with menopause and aging. Some women experience these symptoms early in life due to surgeries like hysterectomy, while others may be exposed to chemotherapy drugs and or radiation that cause early menopause.
Whether you have experienced menopause completely and naturally or have been taken off your hormones for health reasons but remain intimate with your partner, or you have never taken hormones and are just beginning to see signs of estrogen decline, vaginal laser therapy may be right for you and your partner.
The procedure takes less than 5 minutes in the office and is painless for most patients. Because the vulva is more sensitive, a cream is applied externally upon arrival to the office to prevent discomfort during treatment.
Many women suffer from a chronic painful vulvar condition know as lichen sclerosis. This condition has historically been treated with steroid creams including estrogen applied multiple times per week to keep the condition from worsening. Symptoms include pain, dryness, itching, burning, bleeding, cracks in skin, loss or distortion of normal anatomy, narrowing of the vaginal opening and white discoloration of the skin. This condition should be biopsied to avoid misdiagnosis of a more serious skin condition such as vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN).
Mona Lisa Laser treatment shows promise to help those who suffer with this condition to help relieve symptoms and restore the vulva.
