How Does Menopause Affect Sexual Function?
During and after menopause there is a drop off in estrogen production. This one hormonal change leads to many issues in sexual function. There is a decline in libido, orgasms, and intercourse becomes less frequent. There is less desire for sex with the decline in estrogen.
The lining of the vagina becomes thin and the top layer is basically gone. This leads to no lubrication and no elasticity. The vagina has less secretion causing painful intercourse, and altered nerves after menopause can delay orgasm with a loss of clitoral sensation.
MonaLisa Touch is a non-surgical in-office procedure using CO2 laser technology. Perfectly Female Women’s Health Care gently inserts the laser into the vagina which makes microscopic nicks or minor wounds in the vaginal tissue. The body’s wound healing process takes over to encourage increased collagen and new blood vessels to develop.
There is no pain and no needed anesthetic other than an anesthetic gel.
How Long Does MonaLisa Touch Take?
The procedure lasts five minutes, and three appointments over 12 weeks is recommended for best results.
Many women feel improvements even after one treatment. The outer vulva and vaginal opening are also treated.
How Does MonaLisa Touch Restore Libido?
