Why MonaLisa Touch May Be Right for You

As a woman, your healthcare needs are unique and complex. Throughout all phases of your life, you experience changes to your body. For instance, pregnancy and childbirth are amazing journeys you get to experience as a woman, but their accompanying hormonal changes, and those leading up to menopause, may not feel as amazing.

Luckily, advancements in science and technology have made it possible to reverse some of the aging-related issues you experience as a woman, like vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, and loss of sexual satisfaction. Cutting-edge therapies, like the MonaLisa Touch® laser system, can rejuvenate your vaginal health, improving its appearance and functionality.

At the Chronic Pelvic Pain Center of Northern Virginia, Dr. Melissa Delgado is a skilled provider of the MonaLisa Touch treatment and can help you decide if it’s right for you.

What is the MonaLisa Touch laser system?

The MonaLisa Touch laser system is a noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation therapy that uses heat energy to improve the structure and strength of the vaginal walls. A slender probe delivers laser heat to the tissue in the vaginal canal, triggering your body’s natural production of new cells and collagen.

The procedure is painless, safe, and effective at treating a variety of women-specific issues. It requires no anesthesia or recovery time and provides you with long-lasting results.

Who’s a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch?

Lots of women can benefits from the MonaLisa Touch laser technology, regardless of age. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your vagina or are tired of dealing with common women’s health issues like incontinence and painful sex, here are a few questions you might ask yourself:

Have you had a child?

The effects of childbirth can cause stretching and laxity in your vagina muscles, leading to several problems like lack of sexual sensation, urinary incontinence, and appearance issues that affect your confidence and self-esteem.

The MonaLisa Touch laser system stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells that improve the look and functionality of your vaginal tissue. The treatment also improves blood circulation to the area for better overall vaginal health.

Do you experience frequent vaginal discomfort?

Hormonal changes can cause frequent episodes of vaginal dryness and discharge that are both irritating and inconvenient. In some cases, these issues even result in pain that disrupts your life and prohibits intimacy.

MonaLisa Touch technology stimulates the growth of new collagen to increase natural lubrication and prevent dryness and itching. This treatment can also prevent frequent urinary tract and vaginal infections caused by decreased lubrication.

Do you experience frequent urinary leakage?

Common after childbirth and in your postmenopausal years, urinary leaks affect many women. Leaks often occur during strenuous activities like heavy lifting or exercise. They can also happen when you laugh or sneeze, causing embarrassment and a loss of self-confidence.

The MonaLisa Touch laser system strengthens your vaginal wall structure, reducing the frequency of bladder leaks. The system is safe and effective for treating urinary leaks without the risks of surgery.

Is sex painful?

The loss of natural lubrication is often related to a decrease in estrogen, common during menopause. Vaginal dryness can make intimacy uncomfortable, and even painful. This can cause you emotional stress and may even affect the quality of your relationships.

Dr. Delgado uses the MonaLisa Touch laser system to stimulate your body’s natural lubrication. This can alleviate painful sex and even improve your own sexual satisfaction.

The MonaLisa Touch laser system is available at the Chronic Pelvic Pain Center of Northern Virginia. To find out if this technology is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Delgado to discuss your symptoms and learn more about the benefits of this state-of-the-art technology.
