Hormonal changes are a natural part of life that can cause some uncomfortable side effects. When women undergo menopause, symptoms like vaginal itching, burning, and dryness can detract from their intimate relationships and quality of life. Instead of going through risky surgical procedures or hormone replacement therapies to relieve symptoms, the MonaLisa Touch™ uses laser technology to provide a new, minimally invasive solution.
How Does the MonaLisa Touch™ Procedure Work?
The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment uses a C02 fractional laser to relieve some of the most common symptoms of menopause. The laser is inserted into the vagina and its laser pulses stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal wall. Laser vaginal rejuvenation naturally increases blood flow and lubrication to help improve the natural function of the vagina. If you suffer from vaginal dryness, itching, painful urination or sexual intercourse, the MonaLisa Touch can help relieve symptoms of menopause without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
What to Expect During Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
MonaLisa Touch laser vaginal rejuvenation is an outpatient procedure that lasts less than 30 minutes. Some patients will start noticing results after the first treatment, although three or four sessions are normally recommended to achieve the best outcomes. Laser vaginal revitalization is not painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied before the procedure to reduce discomfort. Patients should avoid sexual activity for two days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routines with no downtime.
