A Word About Menopause
Menopause will create an imbalance in your hormone levels. Fewer hormones (like estrogen) can cause vaginal dryness, vaginal tissue degeneration, sexual dysfunction, and more. You may be experiencing many unpleasant side effects of menopause, which can include aesthetic and medical concerns. At Essential Women's Health Associates, we can add MonaLisa Touch sessions to your menopause treatment to manage your symptoms in a nonsurgical way.

"Awesome doctor. My other doctors recommended a hysterectomy for back trouble I was having, she examined me and discovered this was NOT the problem. She kept me from an unnecessary and painful surgery. Great doctor. When we discovered a REAL female problem I was having she did my surgery with care and confidence (even providing pictures). I recovered quickly and I would highly recommend her. Best doctor ever. Very caring and funny too. Her bedside manner puts you at ease and she inspires your confidence and trust in her."- G.O. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
Vaginal Dryness Ideal Candidates
If you are considering having a MonaLisa Touch session at the recommendation of your Essential Women's Health Associates OBGYN, then you passed a thorough evaluation process to determine your eligibility. You will not be a candidate if you:
- Are pregnant or had a baby within the last three months
- Have an active or a dormant infection (bacterial, viral, yeast, or sexually transmitted infection)
- Have a sore that will not heal or is slow to recover
- Have lax internal vaginal muscles
- Have excessive amounts of vaginal tissue due to weight loss or aging
- Had vaginal reconstruction in the past
- Have or had vaginal prolapse treatment with a mesh sling
- Are currently going through radiation or had radiation
- Are being treated for blood clots or the prevention of blood clots
- Have any other medical conditions that would be compromised by the use of the laser technology
If surgery is not recommended at this time for your presenting symptoms, but you still have concerns to address, then the MonaLisa Touch can help with mild cases of incontinence, vaginal lubrication, muscle tone in the vaginal canal, improved comfort (less pain) during sexual intercourse, and more.
Vaginal Dryness Treatment Technique
Once you have completed our consultation process, the actual MonaLisa Touch session is just a few short minutes. As no anesthesia is required, this laser is very easy to prepare you for, and we implement the treatment in a private room. You will dress in a paper gown that has an opening in the front. We will ask that you sit or recline on the examination table in a position where the MonaLisa Touch can be inserted into your vaginal canal. With the wand inserted and the device set for your needs, the treatment will begin. You may feel a warm sensation as the CO2 laser ablates and coagulates your delicate vaginal tissues. As it breaks down the tissue, it also sends a message to your body that it should activate collagen rebuilding in the area. New collagen will make the tissue look and feel firmer and stronger. You do not have to worry about the MonaLisa Touch applicator getting too hot because we are highly trained to use this technology, and it has temperature sensors to keep you safe as well. Once it is over, you can get dressed and go home with no downtime. We do ask that you allow your body time to heal and not have sexual intercourse for about three days after your MonaLisa Touch session. You can be finished in our office in Las Vegas or Henderson, NV in less than 30 minutes. You may see results in 1 – 2 sessions.
Vaginal Dryness Other Considerations
Your treatment plan will be set up after your first consultation should you choose to go forward with the MonaLisa Touch sessions at our office. If you are wondering how many sessions it will take to get your best outcome, we can give you an estimate after seeing you during a physical exam. Every woman's body has its own uniqueness (especially when it comes to menopause). We will be upfront with you about what our nonsurgical technology can do for you and if we feel it will be beneficial in your case. The alternative for severe cases of vaginal atrophy would be surgical intervention. We can also recommend some hormonal supplementation for women in menopause that have imbalances causing the shift in their feminine health.
