Everything You Wanted to Know About MonaLisa Touch® But Had No One to Ask

At Lady’s Care Center, located in Miramar, Florida Dr. Ladynez Espinal has helped countless women feel like themselves again

It’s no secret that menopause can cause hot flashes and mood swings. Less discussed, however, is the problem of vaginal atrophy, which can make sex painful. 

Because your body produces less estrogen during menopause, vaginal tissue often becomes dryer and thinner than it once was. As a result, you may experience pain during intercourse, inflammation and irritation of vaginal tissue, and bacterial infections.

Despite being less discussed, vaginal atrophy affects nearly 50% of menopausal women. 

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with these physically and emotionally frustrating changes. Nor is hormone therapy your only remedy. At Lady’s Care Center, located in Miramar, Florida Dr. Ladynez Espinal has helped countless women feel like themselves again with the ground-breaking MonaLisa Touch.

If you experience vaginal atrophy as a result of menopause, hysterectomy, breast cancer treatments, or childbirth, MonaLisa Touch can help. It can also remedy urinary problems, such as frequent infections and mild bladder control problems – also common with menopause and after childbirth.

Here’s everything you need to know about this effective and hormone-free treatment. 

MonaLisa Touch works quickly and effectively

During your in-office appointment, at Lady’s Care Center, Dr. Espinal inserts a small probe into your vagina. The procedure takes about five minutes for the MonaLisa Touch to deliver the precise amounts of laser energy to your vaginal walls. You can rest assured that the MonaLisa Touch is an FDA-cleared laser technology, as we only offer the highest standard of treatment options for women’s health concerns.

The laser energy triggers your body’s natural healing response, which means that the thermal energy from the laser on your vaginal tissue prompts new collagen production. Collagen is a protein that improves your vaginal health by stimulating hydration and restoring strength and elasticity to the delicate vaginal tissue.

The results you need from a painless procedure and no downtime

Because the MonaLisa Touch uses the most innovative technology to relieve a variety of vaginal symptoms, the treatment is gentle, highly tolerable, and requires no anesthesia or numbing cream. You’ll feel a slight vibration and a warming sensation as the laser energy from the vaginal wand safely heats your vaginal tissue.

After your appointment, you can return to your usual activities with a few exceptions. Dr. Espinal recommends avoiding sexual activity, baths, and intense physical exertion for 3-4 days after your treatment.

MonaLisa Touch is a hormone-free treatment option

Unlike traditional treatments for vaginal discomfort that involve hormones, the MonaLisa Touch is completely natural and drug-free so you won’t have to deal with the unpleasant side effects or risks that can accompany hormone replacement therapies. 

While many women enjoy significant relief after their first treatment, for optimal results three treatments are recommended, spaced 40-60 days apart. After completion, one annual maintenance treatment is all that is necessary. 

For many women, MonaLisa Touch is life-changing! You may enjoy renewed confidence and pleasure during intimacy, even after menopause.
