Valentine’s Day Got You Feeling a Little Anxious?

Learn How An In-Office Procedure Can Restore Your Intimacy and Turn Back the Clock

By Parveen Vahora, M.D.

AnxiousFebruary is a time when many people celebrate love. We see Valentine’s marketing campaigns everywhere, from the grocery and drug store to the direct to consumer ads on television, but what if you aren’t feeling so connected with your partner? Do you think flowers, candlelight, and wishful thinking will get you where you need to be? Probably not, but medical advances can help you and your partner feel better about your relationship and experience what you once had in the past.

Many women experience a shift in their bodies after childbirth, reproductive disorders, surgery, and aging. Have you ever felt that intercourse just wasn’t pleasurable any longer? Maybe you are one of the millions of women that experience vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA).

What is VVA?
When the regularity of a woman’s menstrual cycle ceases, the estrogen receptors decrease along with estradiol in the uterine lining, disrupting the thickness and lubrication of the tissues. Why is this significant? Estrogen increases gland secretion and blood flow to the urogenital tissues, so when our estrogen is limited or obsolete, it leads to vaginal dryness, pain, PH imbalance, and urinary changes such as overactive bladder and incontinence.

Due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out, causing dryness, burning, and inflammation. This can make intercourse very painful and can cause urinary disorders, interfere with daily activities, and completely disrupt your life due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause.

Dr. Parveen Vahora explained, “There are many options for women, like creams, medications, and surgery, but they all pale in comparison to an innovative procedure that is not hormonal, 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 treat their vulvovaginal atrophy and associated symptoms and pain. Women get their confidence and sexual health back to how it was when they were younger.”

MonaLisa Touch®
No medications, no cutting, no lengthy healing times: This innovative laser therapy is for VVA. It’s quick, efficient, and can be safely performed in the comfort and privacy of Dr. Vahora’s office. The laser does not hurt or cause any pain. You will only feel slight vibrating sensations from the machine, and the best part is that the entire procedure is accomplished in an outpatient office setting.

The laser helps with the body’s cell renewal and regenerates the mucous membrane, helps with the restoration of collagen and 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 vulvovaginal atrophy due to the MonaLisa Touch’s® ability to gently improve the tissue of the vulvar and vaginal mucosa. With this treatment, women no longer have symptoms of dryness, pain, itching, or irritation. Women are able to enjoy intimacy once again.
