What Are Women Talking About?
Just like you, many post-menopausal women are experiencing changes that can affect your quality of life in unexpected ways, leading to many unpleasant symptoms. The MonaLisa Touch is a minimally-invasive treatment used to improve the health and elasticity of the vaginal tissue. A specially designed CO2 fractional laser is used in our office to treat an atrophic, or thin and sensitive, vaginal wall. The laser has unique characteristics of penetrating light or laser energy into layers of the vaginal wall in such a way that it stimulates collagen growth and returns the vaginal tissue to a state that was present prior to the changes induced by menopause or other condition.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a new treatment that uses laser energy to treat the symptoms you may be experiencing due to menopause. MonaLisa Touch is a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissues so cells make more collagen, thus, promotiing a return to vaginal health.
Where Can I Have This Done?
The MonaLisa Touch is a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be done in our office in just a few minutes. The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically is done in under 5 minutes.
When Will I See Results?
Patients receive three 5 minute in-office treatments that are spaced six weeks apart. Most MonaLisa Touch patients feel improvement after the very first treatment. After the third treatment, patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment. Patients can return to normal activities after the procedure, but should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days.
Is MonaLisa Touch Treatment Right For You?
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female who has gone through menopause, as well as those who are experiencing a change in their vaginal health as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments. The MonaLisa Touch treatment is a great option and particularly well suited for patients who cannot receive estrogen therapy.
