Do you suffer from vaginal discomfort such as dryness, burning, or urinary incontinence? These symptoms can occur during menopause, pre-menopause, or after child birth. The main cause is often vaginal atrophy: a condition that can adversely affect your life and the relationship with your partner.

Now it’s possible with no pain, no side effects, and in just five minutes to alleviate or eliminate these symptoms. MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser therapy is a painless and minimally invasive laser treatment for vaginal regeneration. By gently acting on tissue of the vagina, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, increasing blood flow and  improving the moisture and normal function of the vagina.

MonaLisa Touch is an FDA approved treatment. Currently, most health insurance plans do not cover this procedure. Although there is an out of pocket cost for the MonaLisa Touch treatment, the benefits are profound and some patients have called it “life changing”.

If you suffer from any of the symptoms, with Mona Lisa Touch treatment we can help.

TREATMENT

Laser Vaginal Regenerative Therapy with the MonaLisa Touch

According to the North American Menopause Society, as many as 45 percent of post-menopausal women suffer from vaginal atrophy, which causes symptoms that affect a woman’s emotional, physical and intimate life. The revolutionary MonaLisa Touch ™ laser helps women relieve the effects of hormonal changes without undergoing surgery or risky hormone replacement therapy.

How Does MonaLisa Touch Procedure Work?

The MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure that uses  fractional CO2 laser technology to reverse vaginal atrophy,  caused by decreasing estrogen in peri- and post-menopausal women. The laser is inserted into the vagina and laser pulses stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal wall. Laser vaginal regeneration naturally increases blood flow and lubrication to help improve the natural function of the vagina.

What to Expect During the Procedure

MonaLisa Touch  is an outpatient procedure that lasts 5 minutes. Three sessions are recommended to achieve the best results. The MonaLisa Touch is virtually painless, but a topical anesthetic cream can be applied before the treatment to reduce discomfort. Patients should refrain from sexual activity for two days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routine.

ATROPHIC VAGINITIS

The drop in estrogen that comes with menopause or even during breast feeding after delivery, causes a series of problems that have a severe impact on one’s social life and personal relationships. Among the most bothersome problems is atrophic vaginitis, which is the lack of nourishment and hydration of the cells of the vaginal mucosa. This condition causes a progressive thinning of the vaginal and vulvar mucosa which then becomes more delicate, sensitive and more exposed to trauma.

Vaginal dryness, burning and itching can be a result of atrophic vaginitis, which is often not spoken about because some consider it a natural consequence during menopause and after childbirth. Thanks to innovative laser techniques, this problem can now be prevented and resolved in a safe and painless way.

PAIN DURING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE (DYSPAREUNIA)

Another symptom of atrophic vaginitis is dyspareunia – pain during sexual intercourse. An atrophic vagina is thin, fragile, lacks elasticity and above all is dry and unlubricated. This causes pain during sexual intercourse with a series of negative consequences regarding the couple’s relationship which lead to a lack of sexual desire and uneasy feelings during intimate moments with your partner.

Dyspareunia can also be caused by pain in the perineal region caused by scarring of the episiotomy or after a laceration from a spontaneous delivery.

Understanding the cause of the pain and using the latest generation laser treatment on the tissue is now the most effective way of resolving this symptom.

URINARY INCONTINENCE

This is one of the most common feminine problems in women over 35 years of age which severely compromises their quality of life. There are various types and levels: from stress (laughing or coughing, lifting weight), urgency (involuntary loss of urine due to lack of control of the urination stimulus by the brain), mixed (incontinence from a combination of stress and urinary urgency) or from reflux (occurs when the bladder is so full that the internal pressure is greater than that of the urethra).

Embarrassment and shame prevent one from facing the problem, which one often bears with resignation but now there are finally state-of-the-art and minimally invasive treatments that can help resolve this problem.*

* Urinary incontinence is a complex problem that requires careful diagnosis by your doctor before being treated.

CANDIDATES

Am I a Candidate?

If you are a woman with vaginal atrophy and are seeking a nonsurgical alternative to relieve your symptoms, the MonaLisa Touch™ treatment is for you. It is a painless procedure with no downtime and no anesthesia required.

What is Vaginal Atrophy?

Vaginal Atrophy is the thinning, drying, and inflammation of vaginal walls experienced by many women due to a reduction in estrogen. This decrease in the production of estrogen is commonly seen in postmenopausal women, breast cancer survivors, and women who have undergone a hysterectomy.

Symptoms experienced may include: vaginal dryness or itchiness, burning sensations, urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, and pain during intercourse. The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment works to promote collagen growth and treat these symptoms rather than masking them to restore vaginal health and functionality.

What is the MonaLisa Touch™ treatment?

MonaLisa Touch works to reverse the symptoms of vaginal atrophy typically seen in post-menopausal women, breast cancer survivors, and women who have had a hysterectomy. The treatment takes less than 30 minutes and uses a minimally invasive laser to deliver microscopic heat beams that stimulate the production of collagen in the vaginal walls and restore vaginal health. The procedure is performed in an office environment and does not require anesthesia.

What are the benefits?

MonaLisa Touch determines dryness, fragility and laxity and can eliminate itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly troublesome during intercourse. This laser treatment is the ideal method to stimulate the collagen in the vaginal walls to rehydrate and restore functional tissue and vaginal health, which improves confidence and sexual well-being.

What results can I expect?

Most patients report a reduction in dryness, burning sensation and pain during intercourse, which contributes to substantially improving overall vaginal health. This is due to the laser energy, which promotes mucosal revitalization and restores the functionality lost over time. The recommended treatment is three sessions set at six week intervals, but some women report significant results after only one session.

Am I a suitable candidate for this treatment?

This treatment is suitable for any woman with vaginal atrophy due to hormonal changes, which become inevitable over time. MonaLisa Touch is ideal for those looking for a less invasive procedure in comparison to traditional surgical or pharmaceutical treatments. For best results and advice, consult a doctor about the MonaLisa touch laser treatment.

Why MonaLisa Touch over other vaginal revitalization methods?

The MonaLisa Touch procedure offers significant advantages over current treatment options because it addresses the issues instead of masking the symptoms. The MonaLisa Touch provides a pain free, nonsurgical alternative, which is desired over traditional and often invasive treatments for vaginal atrophy that have a high risk of significant side effects.

Is anesthesia required?

No, there is no anesthesia required, however, an anesthetic cream can be applied if the patient prefers.

How is the recovery?

Other than the recommendation to refrain from sexual intercourse for two days, women can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. The side effects are temporary and minimal. Your doctor will give you specific guidelines for a quick recovery.

Are there any risks involved?

There are minimal risks to this outpatient or day-hospital treatment. Most women report temporary side effects, slight redness or swelling, and some discomfort that disappears after one or two days of rest.
