Every year, the Oscar gift bag makes headlines—all our favorite stars get one and we want one too! Packed full of decadence, past bags have included stays at some of the worlds most luxurious destinations, jewelry, and the latest in beauty products. While this years’ bag was much of the same, one item in particular stuck out to Dr. Hunsicker and our team at Revalla Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, the Elvie. Coined “your most personal trainer,” the inclusion of the pelvic floor exercise tracker reflects a growing trend—namely, that women are more engaged than ever in taking charge of the vulvar and vaginal health.
At our Denver practice, we have seen this with the popularity of our own treatment, the MonaLisa Touch. While the Elvie and MonaLisa Touch address different aspects of a woman’s sexual well-being, both emphasize the fact that women are increasingly adopting ways to managing the aging process—in all areas of the body. Whether uncomfortable changes occur after childbirth (incontinence) or menopause (vaginal dryness), women are getting the help they need to have a better quality of life thanks to simple, in-office procedures.
MonaLisa Touch Offers a Solution to an Otherwise Hard to Treat Condition
MonaLisa Touch provides an effective treatment for vaginal atrophy, an issue that until now has been difficult to treat. Many don’t realize as many as 50 percent of women experience vaginal atrophy after menopause. A condition characterized by vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy comes with a slew of uncomfortable side effects including burning and itching, as well as making sexual intercourse difficult and even painful.
MonaLisa Touch Is a Revolutionary Treatment
Much like the lasers that have long been used to rejuvenate the face, MonaLisa Touch uses fractional CO2 laser energy to stimulate collagen within the vaginal canal. In turn, the treatment is able to restore elasticity, moisture, and increases the skins’ thickness.
MonaLisa Touch is Both Comfortable and Discreet
Performed intravaginally, Dr. Hunsicker is able to discreetly perform this in-office treatment at her Littleton practice. Taking only a matter of minutes, the treatment is virtually painless. Most women feel a slight vibrating but no other discomfort.
As its inclusion in this years’ Oscar gift bag shows, vaginal rejuvenation is quickly becoming more accepted. And you don’t have to be rich and famous to have access to these options. If you feel like you can benefit from MonaLisa Touch, we encourage you to schedule a private, one-on-one consultation with Dr. Hunsicker.
