Revive Your Sex Life With MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch

Is intercourse painful because of vaginal dryness or discomfort? If so, laser treatment with the MonaLisa Touch® could offer you the solution you’ve been searching for.

The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative system that uses laser energy to penetrate and rejuvenate your vaginal tissues.

The health professionals at Patrick County Family Practice in Stuart, Virginia, provide women with this simple, in-office laser treatment.

A range of applications

The MonaLisa Touch can treat a range of issues, such as:

Estrogen alternative

Vaginal discomfort during sexual intercourse is a common occurrence among women when they go through menopause. As estrogen levels fall, vaginal tissues may become dryer, stiffer, and less pliant. This is a normal physiological response to menopause.

Although taking estrogen replacement therapy can often help women with vaginal discomfort, some women cannot or prefer not to take oral estrogen. The MonaLisa Touch offers them a hormone-free alternative.

Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch can also tighten vaginal tissues that have been stretched by childbirth. And it can help women whose cancer treatments have affected their vaginal tissues or who take medication that causes vaginal dryness.

How it works

The MonaLisa Touch delivers very gentle laser energy to your vaginal tissues through a thin instrument inserted into your vagina. The laser energy penetrates your tissues and stimulates the growth of collagen, a protein in your vaginal tissue. In reaction to the laser energy, your body generates new cells and builds stronger, denser tissue.

As a result, your vaginal walls become more pliant, vaginal tissues become more hydrated, and sexual intercourse typically feels less painful.  

Simple, easy treatment

The MonaLisa Touch laser has been widely used and is recommended by hundreds of experts in female pelvic health. It’s a well-tolerated procedure that requires no anesthesia, incisions, or injections. A treatment takes about 5 minutes and is pain-free.

You may start to feel a difference in your vaginal comfort after just one treatment. However, most patients benefit most from a total of three treatments, each scheduled about six weeks apart. A yearly maintenance session can help you maintain vaginal comfort and lubrication.

There is no downtime after a MonaLisa Touch procedure. However, we may recommend that you refrain from sexual intercourse for 3-4 days. And we may suggest that you avoid hot baths and vigorous exercise for a few days to foster optimal healing.

If your sex life is suffering because of vaginal changes, a MonaLisa Touch treatment could boost your vaginal vitality and your sexual enjoyment. Your care team at Patrick County Family Practice can create a customized treatment plan to suit your needs. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone today.
