Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVa and MonaLisa Touch

“There are a tremendous number of changes that affect the vagina over time, which causes uncomfortable symptoms—dryness, painful sex, incontinence, lack of sexual satisfaction. Many patients know that these are common symptoms – they are the norm. However, patients don’t have to live with them; there are safe and easy treatments available, like ThermiVa and MonaLisa Touch. I don’t know many women who would not benefit from these treatments.” -Duncan Turner MD
