MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
As women age, the effects of menopause, childbirth, and hormonal changes can negatively affect vaginal health.
Some of the most common symptoms of these changes include atrophy, dryness, pain, urinary incontinence, and more.
As a CO2 laser therapy, the MonaLisa Touch is a scientifically backed vaginal rejuvenation solution that helps to change the structure of the vaginal wall, increase collagen production, rehydrate tissue, and establish balance in the mucous membrane.
At Femcare Medical Associates, a physician inserts the handheld laser into the vaginal canal, where it creates small microlesions that are necessary to stimulate new tissue growth and reestablish urogenital structures.
The short procedure happens in-office, and it typically has no painful side effects.
Who is a good candidate for the MonaLisa Touch?
A Femcare Medical Associates physician determines whether or not the MonaLisa Touch procedure is right for each patient. The treatment is helpful for most women who are experiencing the following symptoms or conditions:
- Atrophic vaginitis: a condition that causes a progressive thinning of the vaginal mucosa, which causes symptoms like vaginal dryness and burning
- Dyspareunia: pain during sexual intercourse that is an after-effect of atrophic vaginitis
- Urinary incontinence: urination that happens as a result of physical stress -- like coughing or laughing -- or is involuntary
MonaLisa Touch therapy is usually effective for individuals who have not had success with other medical treatments, procedures, or medications.
