Everyone knows that menopause and declining estrogen levels can bring about highly visible symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. However, the hidden symptoms associated with menopause including vaginal dryness, itching, and painful intercourse can profoundly impact women’s daily lives and intimate relationships. The MonaLisa Touch™ uses advanced laser technology to provide fast relief for the uncomfortable symptoms caused by genitourinary syndrome of menopause.
The MonaLisa Touch™ uses a C02 fractional laser to relieve some of the most common symptoms caused by declining estrogen levels. The MonaLisa Touch™ uses technology similar to that of aesthetic lasers, but is designed to stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal walls. As the laser pulses stimulate a healing response, the existing cells are revitalized to help restore natural gynecologic functions. If vaginal dryness, itching, painful sexual intercourse or urination are affecting your life, the MonaLisa Touch™ can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause and vaginal atrophy without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
MonaLisa Touch™ laser vulvo-vaginal revitalization is an outpatient procedure that is performed in a doctor’s office. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Three sessions are usually recommended to achieve the best results, but many patients will begin to notice improvement immediately following the first session. MonaLisa Touch™ treatments are not painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied to reduce any discomfort experienced during the procedure. Patients should avoid sexual activity for a few days following the procedure, but most people can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime.
