Mona Lisa Touch Q & A
What is the MonaLisa Touch® laser treatment?
The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative medical technology that helps revitalize vaginal tissue through the use of a specially designed laser device. MonaLisa Touch uses controlled thermal energy to stimulate new collagen production below the surface of vaginal tissue. The new collagen helps create firmer, more elastic vaginal tissue.
A small probe that’s specifically designed to fit comfortably into the vaginal canal delivers laser energy to your vaginal tissue. This energy stimulates your body’s natural healing response and generates collagen production.
Why would I need MonaLisa Touch treatments?
After you’ve had a baby or two, your vaginal tissue may not return to its pre-baby condition. Additionally, when you enter into perimenopause — the time leading up to menopause — physical changes take place that can leave you with unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Painful sex
- Mild urinary incontinence
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Vaginal laxity
MonaLisa Touch treatments help restore vaginal tissue and reduce these symptoms. Treatments may also help restore your self-confidence and improve sexual pleasure.
How many MonaLisa Touch treatments do I need?
In most cases, up to three MonaLisa Touch laser treatments result in a significant improvement of your symptoms, but it depends on the severity of your condition. Your gynecologist at Womens Health Care, PC, conducts a comprehensive exam and talks to you about your concerns before recommending a treatment plan. Typically, 1-3 treatments spaced about a month or so apart, followed by annual maintenance treatment, can noticeably improve your vaginal tissue so you feel more confident in your intimate life.
What can I expect during a MonaLisa Touch treatment?
MonaLisa Touch treatments are quick, comfortable, and easy. There’s no anesthesia involved because there’s typically no pain. During treatment, your doctor inserts the vaginal probe and it delivers a gentle vibration and thermal energy to safely heat vaginal tissue.
Treatments take just 5-10 minutes in the office and aside from refraining from sexual activity or using tampons for a few days, you’re free to resume your usual activities. Some women notice a difference after the very first treatment, with optimal results after three sessions. Improvement to the vaginal tissue and reduced symptoms can last up to a year or more, depending on your lifestyle, diet, and whether or not you smoke.
