When women enter menopause, symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats are anticipated. However, the hidden symptoms including vaginal dryness, itching, and painful intercourse can often be much worse and have a profound impact on women’s daily lives and intimate relationships. Now, relief from these symptoms is possible with minimally invasive MonaLisa Touch™ laser treatments!
What Is The MonaLisa Touch™ & How Does It Work?
The MonaLisa Touch™ is a specially designed fractional CO2 laser that can relieve some of the most uncomfortable side effects caused by estrogen deficiency. The MonaLisa Touch™ uses technology similar to that of aesthetic lasers, but is intended to produce new collagen in the vaginal walls. As the cells are revitalized, your symptoms will disappear. If vaginal dryness, itching, painful urination or sexual intercourse are affecting your life, the MonaLisa Touch™ can help alleviate your symptoms without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
What To Expect During MonaLisa Touch™ Treatments
MonaLisa Touch™ laser vaginal revitalization is an outpatient procedure that can be performed in the comfort of our office. The laser application lasts less than five minutes. A typical treatment course includes three sessions spaced about six weeks apart. A yearly maintenance appointment is also recommended to maintain your results. However, many patients will begin to notice improvement following the first session.
MonaLisa Touch™ treatments are not considered painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied before treatment to help reduce discomfort. Patients should avoid sexual activity and strenuous activity for a few days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime.
