Who Can Use the MonaLisa Touch Laser Treatment?
Any woman who has vaginal atrophy due to physical or hormonal changes can be treated using this method. MonaLisa Touch treatments are less invasive than using drugs or surgery. Doctor Stephens can best help you decide whether you are a candidate for this laser treatment. It is important to candidly discuss your symptoms with her, so you both can make the right decisions for your health and comfort.
What to Expect during MonaLisa Laser Treatments?
A gentle fractional CO2 laser is used to rejuvenate the vaginal walls. Advanced laser light produces a photo-thermal reaction in the vaginal walls that causes it to contract, which brings strength and health to the vagina. The treatments increase hydration in the vaginal area, increase muscle tone and elasticity and sensitivity in the area as well.
Does the Procedure Hurt? What is the Recovery Time?
The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is virtually pain free. Very rarely is anesthesia of any kind needed. If a patient chooses anesthesia, a topical cream is applied. You don’t have to take any time off work, so nobody needs to know that you had the procedure. In some cases, redness and swelling occurs in the vaginal area, which disappears in a day or two. Some women only need one treatment, while others need more treatments. Avoid sexual intercourse for five days after the procedure.
What Benefits Can I Expect After Receiving the Treatments?
Women who have MonaLisa Touch laser treatments can expect:
- More comfort during sex
- Heightened sensation during intercourse
- Increased hydration vaginally
- A decrease in itching, infections and dryness
- A decrease in urinary incontinence
- A quick, safe resolution to your vaginal atrophy symptoms
- Increased self-confidence
One of the biggest benefits is that the MonaLisa Touch procedure is that the results are longer lasting than its pharmacological counterparts.
What are the Risks of the MonaLisa Touch Procedure?
There are only minimal side effects reported by those who had the procedure. A few women have reported redness or swelling in the vaginal area. This usually disappears within a day or two. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis. The benefits of having the procedure frequently greatly outweigh the side effects.
