MonaLisa Touch Laser
Women deserve to enjoy their Golden Years. You may still have all your youthful energy and enthusiasm, but the changes to your health after menopause may affect your quality of life in ways you were not expecting. If you are having discomfort or pain with intimacy, you are not alone. Millions of women experience daily discomfort or pain due to the decreases in estrogen after menopause.
As you already know, the well-known symptoms of menopause—the hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats—eventually go away. Unfortunately, the changes to the vagina and vulva continue. If you don’t intervene at all, they just keep getting worse. When intimacy becomes painful, the impact on the rest of your life is well documented. Women have lower self-esteem and less confidence, just when they should be living their best lives!
The MonaLisa Touch laser is a simple, proven solution to help treat the changes of menopause and restore your gynecologic health. Laser sessions are less than 5 minutes each and are conveniently performed right here in our office during a routine outpatient appointment. Come in for a free consultation or schedule your first treatment by emailing Shar or calling the office.

What They Say
“I am in my late 60s. I’ve been using vaginal estrogen for a long time but we always still had to use lubrication and it was still not right. Our relationship is great, but this part of it has definitely taken its toll on both of us. A friend told me about this and I read so many great reviews here, my husband and I decided to try it.
I went to Dr. Azad, to be honest, because it was the lowest price, as my own OBGYN doesn’t offer it. She was great, the office was pretty typical, but friendly. I was afraid they’d try to “sell” me other treatments, but it’s just a normal OB/GYN office. Dr. Azad was great, took her time explaining everything, didn’t pressure me to get it done and didn’t try to make me change my main OBGYN.
I got my first treatment same day as my consultation. I cannot communicate how much this has meant to us. We knew that sex was not the same since menopause, but since I’ve been improving, and we’re now so hopeful and optimistic about the future, it’s exposed just how much this has been weighing on us and on our marriage.
After about 3 weeks I started to notice some improvement, which made me hopeful. But now, after second treatment a little over two weeks ago, it’s just so much better. No amount or type of estrogen has ever given me this much comfort. I’ve stopped using estrogen all together. We’re still using lubrication, but it’s not painful or uncomfortable at all now. I’m very much looking forward to treatment #3 and a future without vaginal creams and lubrication.
If you’re on the fence, just get it done. I can’t emphasize that enough.”
The office itself is just general OB/GYN and they are wonderful. Nice office, friendly staff, the doctors are great. Dr. Azad made me feel very comfortable about this treatment and so I decided to give it a try. It took 5 min, was painless, and I went back to work straight from her office. There was some tingling going on over the next day, but nothing terrible.
It’s just been three weeks but it’s just amazing. I have more lubrication and we’ve had more comfortable sex than I’ve had in at least 2 years. But I’ve noticed other things that I had just gotten so used to. I can’t just feel my vagina being dry all day, it’s wonderful. And there’s no burning when I urinate, no itchiness at night.
It’s not perfect yet, but it’s just 3 weeks into my first treatment. I just can’t believe there’s this treatment, that took 5 min and had nearly no side effects and has worked so well. I am not sure if I’m more in disbelief or my husband. We’re both just so happy Dr. Azad brought it up!”
“I just can’t believe how much better it is. I mean, we used to have sex, but it was so painful, a total chore on my part.
I had my first MonaLisa treatment in April. It wasn’t that much better until about 4 weeks after the first treatment. We tried sex 1-2 around then and it wasn’t perfect, still needed gel, but it was so much better. So I was excited to get my second treatment and had it last week. Just as Dr. Azad told me, it’s already much better than when I first started.
Now I’m just super hopeful that the third will be even better. Both me and my husband are in such better moods, knowing that it’s not decades of minimal to no sex.
It’s pricey, but if you used to enjoy sex and menopause took that away, I’d get this treatment right away.”
