"A game changer"
Vaginal atrophy is a very common condition among women in menopause.
The vaginal, pelvic and bladder tissues are very sensitive to decreasing estrogen levels with a series of consequences that impact directly on the quality of a woman's life: weakness and laxity of the vaginal mucosa, dryness, itching and burning, pain during sex (dyspareunia), increased risk of urinary tract infections, overactive bladder and urinary incontinence.
"Feel like yourself again!"
During menopause, the mucosa develops metabolically quiet fibrocytes as opposed to health fibroblasts, which are unable to actively produce collagen, hyaluronic acid and other molecules needed for adequate hydration. The results are dehydrated and less well nourished tissue making it fragile, poorly toned and more prone to infection.
So the purpose of treating vaginal atrophy is to promote and recover premenopausal metabolic activity by new synthesis of collagen, hyaluronic acid, glucosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. This helps to regain the hydration and elasticity of the vaginal connective tissue. This is the stimulatory effect produced by the MonaLisa Touch treatment whose laser action induces regeneration and rejuvination of the vaginal epithelium.
Q & A:
How is the laser treatment performed?
The procedure is done in the office and does not require any anesthesia. The transducer is inserted into the vagina and delivers laser pulses. The total procedure time is 5 minutes. A typical course of treatment is three procedures six weeks apart.
Does it hurt?
The laser itself is virtually painless. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser transducer tip insertion during the first procedure if there is sensitivity.
How soon can I expect results?
Many patients report that they experience relief right away. The second and third initial treatments allow complete and long lasting results.
How long do the benefits from the treatment last?
The Mona Lisa Touch provides long lasting results. A once a year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief.
- Requires no anesthesia
- No downtime
