During February, love is marketed to us day and night, so what if the love we’re experiencing seems less like an intense flame and more like a smoldering wick? In relationships, sexual intimacy is a common issue that many couples suffer with, and they often do so silently, without much dialogue or solution, which can exacerbate other problems and cause a great deal of tension on the relationship. Sexual disorders can happen to both men and women. For women, it’s often due to vaginal atrophy. Intimacy issues can affect a partner’s psychological wellbeing, just as much as it does with the one with the condition.
Dr. Parveen Vahora explains what vaginal atrophy is and how it affects women’s sexual health.
“The truth is that many pre and postmenopausal women, and even women that have recently gone through childbirth, have vaginal disorders, like burning, dryness and pain that they often withhold and keep to themselves. Most women think that it’s just a ‘normal’ part of the hormonal process, but they don’t have to live with this condition! There are many options to relieve vaginal and vulvar atrophy.
“Due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out, causing dryness, and inflammation. This can make intercourse very painful, and can cause urinary disorders, and may even interfere with daily activities for many women due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause.
“There are many options for women, like creams, medications, and surgery, but they all pale in comparison to an innovative procedure that has no side effects and only takes a few minutes to perform right in the convenience of my office. This advanced technology is called the MonaLisa Touch®, and it’s helped countless women get their confidence and sexual health back to how it was when they were younger.”
It is a new laser therapy for the vagina and vulvar. There are no medications, not cutting and no lengthy healing times with this procedure. It’s similar to having a Pap smear test done. The laser does not cause any pain. You will only feel tiny vibrating sensations from the machine, and the best part is that the entire procedure is accomplished in an outpatient, office setting.
The laser assists with the bodies cell renewal, regenerates the mucous membrane and helps with the restoration of collagen. This renews the proper trophic balance to the membrane. MonaLisa Touch® is a functional vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a unique fractional CO2 laser. This device was created specifically for the vaginal mucosa and is presently the most effective procedure for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its painful conditions.
Now it’s possible to have relief from vaginal and vulvar atrophy with the MonaLisa Touch’s® ability to gently improve the tissue of the vaginal mucosa. The laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.

You and your partner will both benefit from this procedure, as intercourse will be pain-free and pleasurable once again. Mona Lisa Touch restores enjoyment of each other. You’ll be amazed at how effective this procedure is in getting you back to where you once were in your relationship.
