MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch® is a simple and painless laser treatment for feminine wellness and intimacy revitalization. Using advanced, fractional CO2 laser technology, MonaLisa Touch restores healthy hydration, elasticity, and tone to the tissues of your vagina.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
During MonaLisa Touch treatment, your provider at Coeur OBGYN inserts a small probe inside your vagina. In less than five minutes, the probe delivers gentle laser energy into your vaginal tissues.
The laser energy increases collagen production within your vaginal walls, resulting in tissue hydration and functional restoration. This in-office procedure doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime for recovery.
What does MonaLisa Touch treat?
MonaLisa Touch is an effective treatment for distressing symptoms of vaginal atrophy, a common condition that affects as many as 50% of women after menopause. Vaginal atrophy causes many uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal laxity
- Pain during sex
- Vaginal itching
- Vaginal burning
- Urinary incontinence
Women often experience vaginal atrophy in the years leading up to menopause (perimenopause), after childbirth, or as a side effect of cancer treatment. In addition to causing physical discomfort, these symptoms often lead to emotional distress and tension in romantic relationships.
What should I expect from a MonaLisa Touch treatment?
Your provider at Coeur OBGYN first performs a physical and pelvic exam. They carefully listen to your symptoms and review your medical history to make sure MonaLisa Touch is right for you. Then, they develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Every patient is different, but most women require 1-3 treatments spaced 40-60 days apart for optimal results. The treatment is painless, but you may feel a gentle vibrating sensation while the laser works.
After your appointment, you can return to your normal activities right away. However, you should wait 3-4 days before you have sexual intercourse. Your provider at Coeur OBGYN gives you specific instructions on how to help your vagina heal at home.
After MonaLisa Touch treatment, many women notice improvements in their intimate relationships, self-confidence, and overall quality of life. To find out how MonaLisa Touch vaginal revitalization can help you, call Coeur OBGYN or book an appointment online today.
