IntimacyIt’s 2022, and the New Year inevitably arouses resolutions of change. Most of our initiatives are backed with good intentions but often fall to the wayside; however, when it comes to restoring vaginal health and wellness, there are ways to not only manage your health, stave off or treat disorders, but also to turn back the clock.

In the new year, it’s essential not to forget about your overall health. Making sure you schedule your annual medical appointments is critical; this also includes your gynecological visit. Regular wellness exams are essential to early diagnosis and staying healthy, but many women also secretly suffer from sexual dysfunction.

Many women try to hide their condition from their partner or suffer in silence because they believe it’s “normal” for them, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Whether your pain is caused by endometriosis, pelvic conditions, vaginal atrophy, hormonal dysfunction, or from medications, there are answers! And the best part is there are new options! Depending on your health and overall needs, these treatment options include medications, noninvasive procedures, and surgery.

Turn Back the Clock and Increase Pleasure
There is an alternative treatment option that is working for many women. It’s called MonaLisa Touch, an advanced technique that has helped countless women with no drugs, and it’s 100% noninvasive!

MonaLisa Touch®
Noninvasive Advanced Treatment
MonaLisa Touch® is an advanced laser technology for the vulvovaginal area. There are no medications, no cutting, and no lengthy healing times with this procedure. It’s similar to having a gynecological wellness exam. The laser does not hurt or cause any pain, and patients will only feel tiny vibrating sensations from the machine. The best part is that the entire procedure is accomplished in an outpatient office setting.

The laser assists with the body’s cell renewal, regenerates the mucous membrane, and helps restore collagen and renew the proper trophic balance to the membrane. MonaLisa Touch® is a functional vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a unique fractional CO2 laser. This device was created specifically for the vaginal mucosa and is presently the most effective procedure for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and relieving the associated pain.

Now it’s possible to have relief from vulvovaginal atrophy due to the MonaLisa Touch’s® ability to gently improve the tissue of the vaginal mucosa. The laser stimulates collagen production, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.

You and your partner will both benefit from this procedure, as intercourse will be pain-free and pleasurable once again. MonaLisa Touch® allows restoration, healing, and a renewed enjoyment of each other. You’ll be amazed at how effective this procedure gets you back to where you once were in your relationship.

MonaLisa Touch® is quick, safe, convenient, and offers incomparable results!

Incontinence Issues
EMSELLA™ is the answer to conveniently improve urinary incontinence with the most advanced noninvasive technology. EMSELLA is a unique chair that patients can simply sit and relax in (fully clothed) for 20 to 30 minutes in the comfort of their gynecologist’s office. It produces vibrations that cause the pelvic floor muscles to contract. One session is the equivalent of doing 11,000 Kegel exercises.

EMSELLA produces high-frequency vibrations with thousands of contractions per session that tighten the pelvic floor muscles and the bladder sometimes as quickly as the first treatment. 75% of treated patients totally eliminated or decreased the use of hygienic pads, and 95% of treated patients have an improved quality of life. EMSELLA can be effective for both men and women for frequency of urination, leaking with coughing, sneezing, or getting up at night to use the bathroom, and it even enhances sexual function.

Whether you have VVA or suffer from incontinence or anything in between, Dr. Vahora provides a unique emphasis in helping patients improve sexual health and helping you turn back the clock.

Our gynecologist office is small, intimate, and welcoming. Women under our care are treated with the utmost respect, which means we offer personalized care: educating on conditions and treatment options as well as preventative measures. Our focus is on sexual health, and we’re proud to offer the MonaLisa Touch® for patients going through menopause as well as post-menopausal women, breast cancer survivors, and those suffering from pain during intercourse or intense dryness. We also offer genetic testing for breast, ovarian, and colon cancer. From birth control to robotic surgery, we’ve got you covered.

Our practice treats our patients as we would treat our own family, with the goal of keeping them healthy for many years to come, not just the short-term. We follow Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS®) protocols, which take a comprehensive look at all areas of the patient’s journey through surgery and recovery, creating a well¬-coordinated, team¬-oriented approach to surgical care for better outcomes. Weaving this into our personalized care plans, we get patients back to their normal routines faster.
