If you are suffering from post-menopausal atrophic vaginitis, there are a few treatment options available to you.
You could try lubricants and personal moisturizers. They may provide some degree of relief, but typically they don’t completely resolve symptoms.
Hormonal therapy can be very effective, but a lot of women are concerned about hormone use, or find them messy and inconvenient to deal with.
The MonaLisa Touch is a new treatment option for atrophic vaginitis. It is a non-hormonal laser treatment that is painless. It works by increasing the collagen in the vaginal skin cells. Collagen is what gives the skin its strength and elasticity. The procedure is done in 3 sessions, and then yearly afterwards.
If you have any of the symptoms atrophic vaginitis, talk to a provider and see if the MonaLisa Touch is right for you.
