Every woman goes through menopause, but that doesn’t mean that they should suffer in silence while dealing with uncomfortable side effects including vaginal itching, dryness, and painful intercourse. These embarrassing symptoms 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 specially designed C02 fractional laser to relieve some of the most common symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause. 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 cells are revitalized, your symptoms will dissipate as the vagina’s natural functions are restored. 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 vaginal revitalization is an outpatient procedure that is performed in a doctor’s office. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Typically three or four treatments are administered about one month apart to help patients achieve the best results. However, many patients will begin to notice improvement immediately following the first session. MonaLisa Touch treatments are not considered 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 can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime.
