How MonaLisa Touch® Can Help You After Menopause

MonaLisa Touch® is a revolutionary treatment that can improve your vaginal health, especially as you transition into menopause and beyond.

At Bergen Aesthetics, Dr. Heripsime Ohanian offers the convenience of in-office treatments using MonaLisa Touch®, a technology that uses gentle laser energy to stimulate new collagen and elastin, improving the health of your vaginal tissues.

Understanding menopause

Menopause is a natural phase of every woman’s life where monthly periods stop for good and estrogen production slows down considerably. Menopause also signals the end of a woman’s reproductive years.

While many women reach menopause in their late 40s and early 50s, some will go through early menopause due to reproductive disorders, following a hysterectomy, or after treatment for certain cancers.

The side effects of menopause

Because your body is producing less estrogen and progesterone in the months and years leading up to menopause, a time known as perimenopause, you can experience a number of side effects.

Menopause affects every woman differently. Some show no signs of change, while others experience symptoms so severe they interfere with their quality of life.

Besides emotional and mental issues, like mood changes and difficulty concentrating, you can also develop a number of physical conditions that make it difficult to cope. Common physical effects of menopause include:

Hormonal changes may also increase your risk for developing Lichen sclerosus, a condition that causes white, patchy skin to grow on the genital areas. This condition can occur in the years leading up to menopause but is most common in postmenopausal women.

How MonaLisa Touch® addresses menopause symptoms

To deliver the laser energy into the vaginal tissues, Dr. Ohanian inserts a slender probe into the vaginal canal. Treatment is fast and painless, taking less than five minutes to complete.

Once the energy stimulates the tissues, your body reacts by increasing its production of elastin and collagen, two important building blocks of healthy tissue. In the weeks after your MonaLisa Touch® treatment, new collagen and elastin develop, plumping up vaginal tissues and eliminating common menopause-related symptoms, like vaginal dryness and itching.

Laser treatments can also address vaginal atrophy, which is weak, thinning vaginal tissues due to a loss of estrogen. Atrophy of the vaginal tissues can also be a factor in urinary incontinence because the tissues can’t support your bladder correctly, allowing unexpected leaks when you laugh or sneeze. By creating healthier, stronger tissues with MonaLisa Touch®, you can reduce the frequency of bladder leaks and enhance your overall vaginal health.

Benefits of MonaLisa Touch® treatments

One of the biggest benefits is the convenience of the procedure. Not only is it fast, but it requires no incisions or anesthesia. You can also expect to go back to work or other activities following your treatment without needing any downtime.

Another benefit of MonaLisa Touch® for menopause-related side effects is the long-lasting results the treatment offers. New, healthier collagen and elastin continue to develop in the weeks and months after treatment, further improving your vaginal health.
