Is MonaLisa Touch Laser Therapy Right for Me?
Do you suffer from vaginal discomfort? Vaginal discomfort such as dryness, burning, painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence can occur during pre-menopause, menopause, post-menopause, and after childbirth and breast cancer treatment. The main cause is often atrophic vaginitis, a disease that can adversely affect a woman's quality of life in unexpected ways. The treatment can provide relief from a multitude of discomforts impacting the quality of life, including:
Loss of sensation during intercourse
Estrogen Deficiency After Breast Cancer Treatment
What is MonaLisa Touch Laser Therapy?
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores gynecologic health by generating new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks.
Requires no anesthesia
Minimal side effects
Each treatment is less than five minutes
Thousands of women have been treated worldwide since 2012
In U.S. clinical trials, women reported symptom relief after the very first treatment and even greater improvement after treatments two and three.
How does it work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy that is delivered via a side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.
Where can I have this done?
MonaLisa Touch laser therapy is an in-office procedure performed by a physician. Contact us today for a complimentary consultation.
Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience minimal discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
How long does it take?
Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, and each takes less than five minutes to perform.
When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over an 18-week period.
How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment. Your doctor will determine with you if follow-up treatments are required.
What are my limitations after the procedure is done?
Patients should refrain from sexual activity for two to three days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
How much does the procedure cost?
Please contact us for pricing information. We will explore and adjudicate insurance coverage if needed.
Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
