As a board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Mark P. Schumacher understands this better than most and works with women in the Reno, Nevada, area to ensure the best quality of life possible, at every stage of their lives. Whether childbirth, sickness, or menopause has robbed you of your sexual confidence, we can help you fight back with our state-of-the-art MonaLisa Touch® laser therapy.

If you want this year to be the year you regain your sexual confidence, read on to learn how we can help.

Killing the mood

When it comes to sexual confidence, there are many things that contribute to, or detract from, your ability to enjoy a healthy and active sex life. At the top of the list of detractors is poor vaginal health. Let’s face it, if you’re physically uncomfortable during sex, or you’re not feeling the same sensations you once did, it can have an appreciable impact on your sexual confidence.

There are many factors that contribute to poor vaginal health, with perimenopause and menopause leading the charge. As you transition out of your reproductive years, your ovaries begin to shut down. While this obviously means the loss of eggs, it also means a significant loss of important hormones, like estrogen and progesterone. These hormones control your reproductive system, and that includes your vaginal tissue.

As these hormones dry up, so too does your vaginal tissue. When you’re in your reproductive stage, your body ensures that your vagina has strong, healthy tissue to better facilitate intercourse and childbirth. When your ovaries shut down, your body no longer receives the signal (through your hormones) to send in the necessary resources to keep these areas in good health.

Another contributor to poor vaginal health is childbirth. When you bring a new life into the world, your hormone levels fluctuate wildly and the tissue in your vagina is somewhat traumatized by the delivery.

Rounding out the list of primary culprits that affect your vaginal health are certain medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, which can greatly affect your hormone levels and tissue health.

The boost you need

Until recently, women were left with only a few options for restoring vaginal health, including spot creams and hormone replacement therapies. With our MonaLisa Touch laser system, we can tackle the problem from an entirely new angle, without interfering with your hormones.

Using MonaLisa Touch, we deliver fractional CO2 energy into your vaginal tissue to encourage a collagen response. Collagen is the protein responsible for supporting your tissue, and with renewed production, you benefit with stronger, healthier vaginal walls that are better lubricated.

The laser energy also encourages better circulation, which helps greatly with sensation.

The treatments themselves take only minutes (about three to five), and they’re noninvasive, which means there’s no downtime afterward. We typically recommend a course of several treatments, which we space apart by several weeks to allow time for your body to respond.

Your results will be gradual as you progress through the MonaLisa Touch treatments, with optimal results six to 12 weeks after your final session with us.

If you’d like to breathe new life into your sexual confidence this year through improved vaginal health, please give us a call.
