What is the buzz about MonaLisa Touch treatment in Park City, IL?

For a large percentage of a woman’s life, she does not give much thought to the fact that vaginal health is directly linked to feelings of femininity. As the body changes with time and in response to biochemical changes such as pregnancy or menopause (even perimenopause), it is possible that a strong sense of femininity can be lost. The reason that more than 75 percent of women struggle has to do with a condition called atrophic vaginitis.

What is atrophic vaginitis?

Atrophic vaginitis is a condition in which vaginal tissues change due to a significant decrease in levels of estrogen. Vaginal tissues require nourishment and hydration, two elements that change drastically after menopause.

Atrophy of vaginal tissues may not affect a woman’s health, but it can certainly diminish her overall sense of wellbeing. Women with atrophic vaginitis may experience symptoms such as:

  • Painful intercourse and a subsequent decrease in desire
  • Persistent vaginal dryness
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Discomfort when wearing tight clothing
  • Changes to the color and density of labial tissue

Treatment options for atrophic vaginitis just got better

Innovations in medicine have brought about an increase in treatment options for women suffering from atrophic vaginitis. What is nice about treatment such as MonaLisa Touch, offered by Dr. Gandhi at North Shore Urogynecology, is that women from areas including Park City, Woodstock, and Lake Forest, IL can achieve excellent results in a very natural, very comfortable way.

This very short in-office vaginal rejuvenation procedure is based on CO2 laser technology tailored to vaginal mucosa. MonaLisa Touch is virtually painless and requires no anesthetic. In less than five minutes, the device stimulates a resurgence in the production of collagen, a substance well known for its skin-supporting properties.

Many patients notice an improvement in their symptoms after their very first treatment. For optimal results, however, three treatment sessions are scheduled about a month apart. This approach ensures that collagen production remains consistent enough to nourish vaginal mucosa.

Vaginal rejuvenation is something that you should not only be able to talk about but actually achieve. Contact our office nearest you to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Sanjay Gandhi.
