MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a noninvasive laser treatment applied using a sterile vaginal probe to the internal and external walls of the vagina. The gentle energy stimulates the tissue to create more skin-strengthening collagen, remove dry skin, and greatly improve circulation. The treatment is safe, effective, and pain-free. MonaLisa Touch involves no surgery, blood loss, or risk of infection.
What issues does MonaLisa Touch address?
Women of all ages who have thinning vaginal walls or inflamed vaginal tissue benefit from MonaLisa Touch treatments. A decrease in estrogen production that occurs with menopause, after childbirth, during breast cancer treatment, or with a hysterectomy can lead to uncomfortable vaginal symptoms. These symptoms include:
● Vaginal dryness
● Vaginal itching or burning
● Painful intercourse
● Mild urinary incontinence
Women often call MonaLisa Touch treatments life-changing as they have the potential to restore a woman’s comfort and confidence.
How many treatments with MonaLisa Touch are needed?
Most women require three sessions spaced out about six weeks apart. Some women see results after just one or two sessions. You may also benefit from a yearly maintenance treatment after the initial sessions.
Does MonaLisa Touch require any downtime?
The MonaLisa Touch procedure is performed in-office. Each session takes less than 30 minutes and you can go right back to your regular daily activities afterward. Doctors do recommend you avoid sexual intercourse for two to three days following treatment.
Do MonaLisa Touch treatments hurt?
Most women tolerate MonaLisa Touch treatments well. You may feel slight heat and tingling during the application of the laser energy, but it requires no anesthesia. If you have concerns about discomfort, discuss them with the doctors at North Atlanta OBGYN at your complimentary pre-procedure consultation.
