MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a laser treatment that can help with several different female issues including vaginal dryness, vaginal itching, and vaginal burning. This treatment is also helpful in correcting vaginal laxity for many women. Vaginal laxity may be a problem in women who have given birth vaginally. The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is especially helpful for issues that may arise during menopause. This treatment is minimally invasive and is non-surgical.
How Does the MonaLisa Touch Procedure Work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses a C02 fractional laser. This treatment does not involve anesthesia, and is easily done in the office. The patient will lay in the same position that is used in a typical pelvic exam during the treatment. The laser is then delivered directly to the vaginal tissue. This prompts the creation of new collagen. This improves any issues with laxity and also alleviates other symptoms like dryness, itching, and burning. The whole procedure usually takes only around 30 minutes from start to finish.
What Can Patients Expect After Their MonaLisa Touch Treatment?
It depends on the individual woman, but some people start to feel improvements after only their first session with the MonaLisa Touch laser. All women need to return for further treatments, with a total of 3 to 4 treatments being about average for people who want the optimum results. The treatments are generally scheduled around 40 to 60 days apart from each other. Most women don't have any pain during or after the procedure, but an anesthetic cream can be used to minimize any discomfort if it is needed. Sexual activity should be delayed for two days after the treatment with the MonaLisa Touch. All other activity can be resumed again nearly right away. Overall, this is an effective treatment that can allow a woman to get rid of multiple uncomfortable symptoms at one time.
