Aging and sexual discomfort
Menopause has a profound impact on your life, including your libido and sexual function. The large fluctuation in hormones during this period in your life can cause you to lose interest in sex and makes it more difficult for you to become sexually aroused.
During perimenopause and menopause, your body goes through significant changes, especially in your vagina. For instance, your vagina loses elasticity as you age and also in menopause. This may hamper your ability to feel certain sensations when having sex with your partner.
You may also experience vaginal dryness as a result of devascularization around your vagina. This means your vagina doesn’t become lubricated enough to have comfortable intercourse.
With any of these changes, you can experience pain during sex. This makes a huge difference in your sex life, possibly causing you to avoid sex all together.
What is laser vaginal rejuvenation?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a nonsurgical procedure that can help with the discomforts of menopause on your vagina. The system uses a CO2 laser to heat up the tissues around your vagina gently. This helps revitalize the deeper tissues by promoting collagen production.
Collagen is a protein that keeps your skin elastic and firm. When the laser stimulates its production, the skin in and around your vaginal canal becomes tight and more elastic.
The laser treatment also helps stimulate blood flow to your vagina. This helps with the overall health and lubrication of the vaginal canal.
If you experience urinary urgency or incontinence from the changes of menopause, the MonaLisa Touch laser treatmet helps to tighten your tissues, making it easier to hold your urine.
Dr. Zilberstein uses the MonaLisa Touch system to help you achieve drastic results that alleviate your uncomfortable symptoms. And it can rev up your sex life.
How laser vaginal rejuvenation improves your sex life
When you don’t feel like yourself, you certainly don’t feel like having sex. Menopause has the ability to change your vagina drastically, often putting your sex life on the sidelines.
But with laser vaginal rejuvenation, you can be back to yourself with a few quick treatments. After your treatment, you should notice that you have more lubrication in your vagina, which makes intercourse much more comfortable. The tightening of your tissues also enhances sexual pleasure, as you’ll be able to feel more and have better sensations before and during sex.
Vaginal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch can change your whole outlook on sex. Before, you may have dreaded intercourse because you knew the discomfort and pain that would follow.
After your laser treatment, you may look forward to ramping up your sex life with the changes that follow. It may even help your libido because you’re feeling better about yourself and your vaginal health.
