Many women suffer from vaginal atrophy, which is mostly caused by menopause-related hormone changes. Symptoms include vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and problems with urination. MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are designed to help women who are experiencing symptoms brought on by hormone-related changes, and we are very pleased to offer this breakthrough treatment to our patients.
Approved by the FDA in 2014, MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser that stimulates collagen growth on the vaginal walls. MonaLisa Touch laser treatments are specifically designed to rejuvenate the tissues that line the vaginal canal. This state-of-the-art technology is the safest and most effective way to treat vaginal atrophy and prevent its after effects, without resorting to surgery or prescription medications.
The procedure is as equally effective for women who have gone through natural menopause as it is for women with hysterectomy-induced menopause. It’s an especially effective option for women who can’t benefit from hormone replacement therapy.
During the procedure, our physicians use a vaginal probe to ease the laser into your vagina. There, it emits gentle pulses of painless laser energy into your vaginal wall, where it activates the production of new collagen and revitalizes the vaginal mucosa. In just a few quick treatments, MonaLisa Touch can:
A single in-office MonaLisa Touch treatment takes less than five minutes, and the average woman needs just three to see optimal results! Because each treatment is scheduled six weeks apart to give your body’s natural healing mechanisms enough time to rejuvenate the treated area, it takes 18 weeks to complete a typical course of treatment. Many women report noticeable symptom relief after just one treatment, and more significant relief after each successive treatment.
As a gentle, non-invasive procedure, MonaLisa Touch has virtually no side effects and allows you to resume your normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you refrain from having sexual intercourse for two or three days to give your vaginal tissues time to begin the healing process.
