Many women are aware of the visible side effects of menopause like hot flashes and night sweats. However, many women are reluctant to mention more private and uncomfortable symptoms like vaginal itching, burning, and dryness, which can profoundly impact their quality of life and intimate relationships. The MonaLisa Touch™ uses advanced laser technology to provide fast relief of symptoms caused by genitourinary syndrome of menopause, or GSM.
The MonaLisa Touch™ uses a C02 fractional laser to relieve some of the most common symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause. Although it uses technology similar to facial rejuvenation lasers, the MonaLisa Touch™ is specifically designed to stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal walls. As a result, blood flow and lubrication in the area are naturally increased to improve the vagina’s function. If vaginal dryness, itching, painful sexual intercourse or urination are affecting your life, the MonaLisa Touch™ can help alleviate your symptoms without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
MonaLisa Touch™ laser vaginal revitalization is an outpatient procedure that lasts less than 30 minutes. Three or four treatments are usually recommended, but many patients will begin to notice results immediately following the first session. Laser vaginal revitalization is not painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied to reduce any discomfort experienced during the procedure. Patients should avoid sexual activity for a few days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime.
