What is MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treatment is the most recent promising breakthrough in women’s vulvovaginal health. Drs. De Castro and Basit offer this treatment as a nonsurgical, in-office procedure. During treatments, a small probe is inserted into the vagina to deliver pulses of laser energy to revitalize the cells, stimulate new collagen production, restore vaginal microarchitecture, and improve vaginal pH.
Treatment benefits include:
- In-office procedure
- Performed without requiring anesthesia
- Quick, resulting in virtually no downtime
- Results are almost immediate (3 treatments are recommended)
How Does MonaLisa Touch Work?
MonaLisa Touch delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue. This fractional energy resurfaces the vagina, removes irregularities, tightens the top layer of tissue and begins to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin.
Am I a Candidate?
MonaLisa Touch is for women with gynecologic health concerns. Its SmartXide Touch Laser is indicated for incision, excision, ablation, vaporization, and coagulation of soft bodily tissue. Like all medical procedures, not all patients are good candidates. Drs. De Castro and Basit will review the risks and benefits specifically for you.
What Can I Expect During Treatments?
This well-tolerated, in-office procedure does not typically require anesthesia and only lasts about five minutes. After the procedure, patients can return to normal activities but should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Drs. De Castro and Basit will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
What Should I Expect from the Results?
Many patients begin to see an improvement in symptoms of vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, burning urination, painful intercourse, urinary frequency, nighttime voiding, and other menopause-related symptoms after just one vaginal laser treatment; however, for best results, a series of 3-5 sessions 4-6 weeks apart may be needed. As your body begins to naturally stimulate more collagen over time, your vaginal health will be restored.
