MonaLisa Touch

CO2 Laser Therapy for vaginal dryness and atrophy that often occurs after menopause - an innovative treatment for vaginal health.

 

Just like you, many post-menopausal women are  experiencing changes that can affect a woman’s quality of life in  unexpected ways, leading to many unpleasant symptoms…

MonaLisa Touch is an ideal treatment that is fast, simple and safe.

Simple and Safe:

• Three <5 minute treatments at 6 week intervals

• No anesthesia and virtually no pain

• In-office procedure

• Annual follow up treatment once a year

 

How Does It Work?

 

MonaLisa Touch treats the symptoms of vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization of the vaginal mucosa.

 

The procedure is safe, virtually painless and uses proven methods similar to those used to treat aging facial skin

It does this using a gentle fractional CO2 laser with a vaginal probe. The laser energy is virtually painless.

 

What is the Procedure Like?

 

Similar to your annual exam, the physician will insert the probe into your vagina and deliver laser energy pulses. The entire procedure is less than 5 minutes.

A unique pulse targets surface epithelial tissue and deep lamina propria tissue to stimulate the synthesis of new collagen and the components of the ground substance of the matrix.  Fractionated beams of light penetrate small areas of tissue. This creates small injuries in the epithelial layer of the vaginal mucosa which triggers fibroblast activity which stimulates new collagen production.

 

Most MonaLisa Touch patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three

 

Has this procedure been studied?

 

A multisite study was conducted by two leading Urogynecologists who are experts in the field of postmenopausal gynecologic health; Dr. Mickey Karram, Director of Fellowship Program on Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH and Dr. Eric Sokol, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center.

 

Additionally, recent results from a trial evaluating the laser treatment on postmenopausal women and breast cancer survivors who are experiencing gynecologic health issues shows positive results and a high patient satisfaction rating.

 

Is this treatment right for me?

The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for females who are experiencing a change in their gynecologic health.   It is an excellent option for breast cancer survivors, or patients who can not use hormone replacement therapy. Speak to your physician to see if MonaLisa Touch is right for you.
