 Women's Intimacy Issues

In addition to aesthetic services, Steven B. Cherrington, DO, and the team at Gentle Revive help patients address issues that inhibit or prevent sexual intimacy. We recognize that intimacy issues affect a large number of our clients, and we want to make your lives as rich and fulfilling as we are able to. For many women, there are a variety of issues that can make it difficult to enjoy sexual intimacy, or stop it altogether. When women experience intimacy problems, it can lead to feelings of anxiety, self doubt, avoidance, and fear of sexual intercourse. Marriage and relationships can suffer because of sexual health problems, and we can help. We provide effective treatment for patients experiencing painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, laxity, frequent urinary tract infections, decreased sexual sensation and libido, and urinary incontinence. For patients looking to avoid medications and invasive procedures, the doctors at Gentle Revive provide three kinds of effective nonsurgical treatments for whatever your specific need is: MonaLisa Touch, TempSure Vitalia, and the O-Shot. The team at Gentle Revive can help you better understand your symptoms and help you discover the best treatment option, personalized for you.



The MonaLisa Touch is an FDA approved, innovative solution promoting vaginal revitalization in women who have decreased estrogen levels, or those who need a boost in the area of intimacy. It resolves women’s sexual health concerns like vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, laxity, and frequent urinary tract infections. The treatment uses fractional laser technology that triggers the production of new collagen and gently rejuvenates vaginal tissue by ablating small micro-columns of tissue. This creates and enhances healthy tissue and supports rapid healing. Full results come after three treatments, where the laser simultaneously removes tissue that isn’t working properly, and stimulates growth of new tissue with correct function. You would first come in for a consult, to be sure that there are no underlying conditions that would prevent you from getting great results, and then one of the doctors here at Gentle Revive will do the treatment for you. We are seeing truly life changing results for our patients who come to us with any or all of the following symptoms:

  • Vaginal dryness and discomfort that comes from menopause, hysterectomy, or history of cancer/chemotherapy
  • Frequent UTIs
  • Vulvovaginal atrophy
  • Lichen sclerosis
  • Painful intercourse
  • Incontinence with sneezing, laughing, etc.


The MonaLisa Touch is a well tolerated treatment that takes about 5 minutes. There is no downtime, other than we ask that you wait 2-3 days before resuming sexual activity. This is not a cosmetic procedure, though our clients are giving feedback that it is benefiting them cosmetically as well. You will experience the effects of the MonaLisa Touch treatment very quickly, and the symptoms will continue to improve as the vaginal tissue regenerates. The MonaLisa Touch truly has the ability to give you back your sexual wellness and health.

  • Thousands of women have chosen MonaLisa Touch since 2012
  • Fast
  • Non-hormonal, chemical-free
  • Virtually no downtime


TempSure Vitalia

TempSure Vitalia is a very gentle radiofrequency treatment that helps improve vaginal health and function without the need for medications, invasive procedures, or hormone therapy. It also boasts a quick treatment time, and no downtime. It is an effective, all-ages treatment for addressing a number of vaginal health concerns such as:

  • Decreased Sensation
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Frequent UTIs
  • Vulvovaginal atrophy
  • Painful intercourse
  • Laxity
  • Incontinence with sneezing, laughing, etc.


TempSure Vitalia is an FDA approved treatment that works by delivering heat internally and externally, to stimulate the production of new collagen, tighten tissue, and improve function and circulation. Typically, our clients are very satisfied with their results after three treatments, and you can do more or less depending on your personal need. Visual results are immediate, and you will experience the full and increasing effects over the weeks following each treatment.



The O-Shot is a treatment that uses your own plasma to generate new, healthy tissue. We use your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which is full of bioactive proteins that release growth factors to stimulate reconstruction of your cells, and speed tissue repair. These are in your blood all the time, but with this treatment, we are using a high concentration of these healing platelets that stimulate cellular repair, in a specific area, for a specific outcome. PRP was used initially in the treatment of sports injuries, dentistry, and in wound healing, but is now also being used for aesthetic concerns like hair growth, skin rejuvenation, sexual wellness, and urinary incontinence. PRP activates your stem cells and stimulates cellular repair wherever they are applied, as well as collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels to increase tissue repair. When you get the O-Shot, you can expect the following changes that will increase your sexual wellness:

  • Decreased or resolved pain during intercourse
  • Increased clitoral response
  • Increased ability to have vaginal orgasms
  • Return to younger function of skin with tightness and elasticity
  • Decrease or resolve in overactive bladder and urinary incontinence
  • Increased lubrication
  • Stronger and more frequent orgasms


At Gentle Revive, the providers sit down with you to discuss the best option for treating your symptoms and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Women's Intimacy Issues FAQs

Do these Women's Intimacy treatments hurt?

Women describe the MonaLisa as feeling like a slight fluttering when treating internally, and externally we use a very strong numbing cream that combines 3 medical grade numbing agents, Benzocaine, Lidocaine, and Tetracaine, so you won’t feel any pain. TempSure Vitalia does not require the use of any numbing cream, and does not hurt at all.

The O-Shot treatment involves taking a small amount of blood from your arm, taking just the platelet Rich Plasma from that, then injecting it into the vaginal walls and clitoris. It sounds scary, but you will be completely numb with the same medical grade numbing cream we use for the MonaLisa Touch, so pain is very minimal.

Which Women's Intimacy treatment should I choose?

There are several factors in deciding which treatment, or combination of treatments is best for you. There are differences in the outcomes for each, and what you are looking to achieve will help greatly in determining the best method of getting there. The most comprehensive way to determine which treatment is going to be best for you is in a consult. We recommend that you book an appointment at Gentle Revive by phone or online today to get back to yourself, fully.

Are these treatments covered by insurance?
