What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a CO2 fractional laser used to treat vaginal atrophy and dryness, which affect at least 50% of menopausal women.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses CO2 laser photo-thermal energy to deliver precise amounts of heat and stimulate regeneration of vaginal tissue, causing the tissue cells to multiply and increasing blood supply to the area.
As tissue and blood supply is restored, the vaginal mucosa recovers the volume, elasticity and hydration that was lost as part of the ageing process.
What can I expect from treatment?
A small laser handpiece is used to deliver pulses of energy to the vaginal walls from inside the vagina. Most patients describe a vibrating sensation and little to no discomfort. After treatment, it is recommended that you abstain from having intercourse for 5 days.
Because tissue remodelling can take some time, you may need more than one treatment. Some patients begin to notice improvement right away, but for others, it may take a few weeks.
