Relieve vaginal itching and rejuvenate your life with the revolutionary MonaLisa® Touch laser therapy

Vaginal itching or pruritis has varied causes — from harsh soaps, douches, and topical preparations, to bacterial and other types of infections. Post-menopausal women may develop vulvovaginal atrophy, otherwise known as GSM (Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause). GSM is characterized by itching, as well as symptoms such as vaginal dryness and pain during sex and when urinating. 

MonaLisa Touch Laser Therapy in Lake Forest IL area

Fortunately, Partners in Pelvic Health has considerable advanced knowledge and technologies like the MonaLisa® Touch laser therapy to restore your comfort and quality of life. For utmost convenience, our practice, led by Board-certified urogynecologist Dr. Sanjay Gandhi, operates four Northwest Illinois offices: Lake Forest, Park City, Woodstock, and Chicago. 

The problem 

During menopause, estrogen levels fall. These hormonal changes can thin the vaginal lining. This tissue may also lose its elasticity. Lower estrogen is also associated with a thinning of the lining of the urinary tract. The symptoms caused by these changes are collectively associated with GSM. Women with GSM may also notice vaginal burning, post-sex bleeding, and frequent vaginal infections and UTIs. 

A potential solution 

The MonaLisa Touch® laser system by Cynosure® is indicated for treating symptoms of GSM or vulvovaginal atrophy. This fractional carbon dioxide laser is applied precisely and safely to the target tissues. Therapeutic energy is delivered to the treatment site. This energy then goes to work to revitalize vaginal mucosal cells, triggering a beneficial process of collagen renewal and production. This firming protein is essential to the health of the vaginal cells. 

While our patients have experienced improvements in their symptoms after a single treatment, optimal improvements may be achieved following two or three treatments spaced approximately six weeks apart. We may also discuss annual maintenance treatments to ensure sustained vaginal health and all of the quality of life- and wellness-boosting benefits associated with it.
