Vaginal Atrophy affects many women of different ages. It may be associated with menopause, childbirth or hormonal disruption associated with lifestyle, weight fluctuation or other health issues.
Vaginal atrophy refers to the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to the body producing less oestrogen. It can develop at any time the body’s oestrogen production declines, it’s not only restricted to menopausal women. Atrophy is a very common attributor to dyspareunia (painful sex).
Symptoms often include a widening or loosening of the vaginal canal and a loss of muscle tone and tissue elasticity in the vagina. A loss of sensation and discomfort upon penetration often makes sex unappealing for women suffering from vaginal atrophy.
MonaLisa Touch encourages the body to make new, stretchy (elastic) tissues and rejuvenates inside the vagina. After MonaLisa Touch the vagina is narrower, the vaginal wall stretches more easily and lubrication is improved.
