MonaLisa Touch™ is a functional vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a special fractional CO2laser, specifically created for the vaginal mucosa. MonaLisa Touch™ prevents and resolves estrogen drops in the vaginal tissue (typically occurring during menopause or after childbirth) by re-activating the production of new collagen and reestablishing the conditions that the vaginal mucosa once had. MonaLisa Touch™ is now the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its after-effects, which many women suffer from during menopause and after childbirth.
The CO2 laser gently acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner, creating indistinguishable micro-lesions that are required for triggering a neocollagenesis process (production of new collagen) and reorganizing and re-equilibrating the components of the vaginal mucosa. The laser’s action therefore safely and painlessly reactivates and reestablishes the proper function of the relative urogenital structures while also improving the symptoms associated with urinary dysfunction (mild incontinence due to stress).
The treatment is suitable for any woman with vaginal atrophy due to hormonal changes. If you are experiencing changes to your vaginal health after menopause, hysterectomy or breast cancer treatment, MonaLisa Touch can bring immediate and long-lasting relief. MonaLisa Touch is ideal for women seeking a less-invasive procedure than traditional surgery or pharmaceutical treatments.
The procedure is similar to your annual exam. The physician will insert the laser and deliver laser energy "pulses" that stimulate the collagen in the vaginal walls to rehydrate and restore functional tissue. It increases blood flow and lubrication. The restoration of natural vaginal functionality can improve confidence
Many patients report relief right away and even greater improvement after the second and third treatment. There is no need for you or your personal life to suffer any more. This revolutionary treatment is changing lives!
Other than the recommendation to refrain from sexual intercourse for 10 days following each treatment, women can return their normal activities immediately.
The application of the intravaginal laser is painless, so it does not require the use of anesthetics. When combined with other external treatments such as vulvar rejuvenation, genital depigmentation, etc., an anesthetic ointment is applied 20 minutes before the procedure.
In general patients receive three 5 minute in-office treatments that are spaced six weeks apart.
There are virtually no side effects or discomfort with this treatment.
Patients can return to normal activities after the treatment, but should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you
