What Is Vaginal Atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls and is experienced by women when estrogen production declines. This is often the result of entering menopause, induced by surgery or cancer treatments. Vaginal atrophy is associated with the following symptoms:
- Dry vagina
- Vaginal burning or itching
- Decrease or loss of vaginal sensation
- Spotting after intercourse
- Painful intercourse
- Urinary incontinence
- Recurrent UTIs
Vaginal atrophy profoundly impacts a woman’s life. However it is important to know that highly effective treatments with little adverse effects are available.
MonaLisa Touch for Vaginal Atrophy
While Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is generally the first line treatment for vaginal atrophy, for patients who cannot use hormonal treatments, MonaLisa Touch is ideal.

It is a minimally invasive procedure that works to promote natural collagen production and rejuvenation of the vagina. This restores long term vaginal health and functionality.
