MonaLisa Touch helps restore hydration and comfort if you’re experiencing signs of hormonal changes in your vagina. This device delivers CO2 laser energy, which boosts collagen production in your vaginal cells. As laser energy reaches these cells, it damages them and causes your body to make collagen for healthier cells. This eases dryness, irritation, and other vaginal symptoms.
Although the MonaLisa Touch device releases laser energy, it shouldn’t cause any pain or burning. In fact, you most likely don’t need to have any local anesthesia before these treatments.
If you’re highly sensitive, you can ask your doctor about having a numbing cream applied to prevent discomfort. You might feel some slight vibrations as the laser gives off energy, but not enough to cause pain.
These treatments take roughly five minutes each, although this varies depending on different factors, such as the severity of your symptoms. Your doctor will let you know about how long MonaLisa Touch should take.
MonaLisa Touch takes a few treatments before results become noticeable, but it’s possible to experience some improvement after your first treatment. You might need to have at least three MonaLisa Touch treatments done about six weeks apart, but this can vary. Your doctor might recommend having treatments more often depending on the exact cause of your symptoms and how much they’re affecting you.
After having MonaLisa Touch done, your doctor might recommend coming back in one year for maintenance treatment. Having this treatment done reduces your risk of experiencing irritation, dryness, or other vaginal symptoms again. Keep in mind that the results of MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation aren’t permanent, so you should plan on having a follow-up visit if needed.
If you have dryness, burning, irritation, or pain during intercourse, you might be considered a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch. You might experience these symptoms as you age and your estrogen levels decrease. These symptoms can also occur from other causes. Your doctor will determine the cause of your symptoms and check your medical history to let you know if MonaLisa Touch is suitable for you.
