Reinvigorate Your Sexual Health This Year with MonaLisa Touch

Sexual Health, Cosmetic Surgery Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, MonaLisa Touch® laser technology

Mother Nature is full of ironies, and a big one for women is that when they’re finally able to enjoy an active sex life without any consequences, their vaginal health may not be up for this new stage of life.

At Cosmetic Surgery Center, we want women in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to feel great about themselves, inside and out, and part of this effort addresses sexual health. If you’re suffering from painful sex or vaginal dryness, we have just the remedy you need.

Here’s a look at how we can reinvigorate your sexual health this year with our MonaLisa Touch® laser technology.

The final (reproductive) journey

When you enter perimenopause or menopause, your ovaries begin to wind down production of your eggs, signaling the end of your reproductive years. The hormone groups that are responsible for your reproductive system, namely estrogen and progesterone, are largely produced in your ovaries, and when their levels begin to decline, so does the release of your eggs.

Unfortunately, these hormones govern far more than just your eggs. They play a large role in everything from your moods to the health of your tissue, including your vaginal tissue. While you may notice a sudden onslaught of wrinkles and sagging skin on the outside, the tissue inside your vagina is suffering similar side effects.

When you’re in your reproductive years, your body is geared toward conception and pregnancy, which means it keeps your tissue healthy and ready for both sex and childbirth. Thick, well-lubricated vaginal walls facilitate reproduction, but when that’s no longer on the table, your body ceases to send in the necessary resources to keep this tissue healthy.

The end result is that many women suffer from vaginal dryness, thinning vaginal tissue, poor circulation -- and ultimately, painful sex.

Regaining vaginal health

Until recently, there was little recourse when it came to the effects of menopause or childbirth on your vaginal health, other than spot creams and hormone replacement therapies. Now we can fight back with our MonaLisa Touch® laser system, which is a noninvasive treatment that rejuvenates your vaginal tissue.

Using the MonaLisa Touch, we deliver fractional CO2 laser energy into your vaginal tissue to spur a mild healing response. This response comes in the form of renewed collagen and elastin production, the two proteins responsible for the elasticity and tone in your tissue. The laser energy is absorbed by your vaginal walls, without harming the surface area, and goes to work below to create healthier tissue.

Quick and easy

The MonaLisa Touch treatments take only minutes, and we recommend that you undergo several sessions for optimal results. Since the laser technology is noninvasive, there’s no downtime afterward, which means you’re free to go about your day when you leave.

We space the treatments out by a few weeks to allow time for your body to respond in between appointments. Your results will be gradual as you progress through the therapy, with optimal results about 6-12 weeks after your final session with us.

 

If you’d like to welcome the new year with renewed sexual health, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
