MonaLisa Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
As you age, the tissue of the vagina thins and blood flow to the area diminishes. MonaLisa Touch is a vaginal laser treatment that stimulates the tissue of the vaginal region to repair itself. During treatment, one of the doctors from GearityWellness Center applies the laser energy using a specialized, sterile wand.
The laser energy encourages an increase in the production of collagen, a skin-strengthening compound, to strengthen and thicken the vaginal walls. MonaLisa Touch also encourages greater blood flow to the region.
What issues can MonaLisa Touch treatments address?
MonaLisa Touch is an invaluable treatment when it comes to vaginal health. Issues that can be resolved with the laser treatment include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal pain
- Painful intercourse
- Pain during urination
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Abnormal discharge
These symptoms often arise due to a change in estrogen levels that occur with menopause and perimenopause, the years leading up to the change in your fertility status. Approximately 50% of menopausal and postmenopausal women are affected by some or many of these symptoms.
Women may also experience this vaginal discomfort in the postpartum period as estrogen levels fluctuate.
MonaLisa Touch offers a valid alternative or adjunct to hormone therapy, which some women may prefer to avoid.
Do MonaLisa Touch treatments hurt?
Women find the laser energy of MonaLisa Touch quite tolerable. It feels just like a mild vibration and is not painful. Each treatment takes about five minutes. The procedure requires no anesthesia or numbing cream.
You need no downtime following MonaLisa Touch treatments and can resume all of your normal activities afterward. The doctors may recommend you avoid sexual intercourse for the three days right after treatment, however.
How many treatments with MonaLisa Touch will I need?
The team at Gearity Wellness Center create a customized treatment plan for you. Most women benefit from three initial treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. After that, you may also benefit from a yearly maintenance treatment.
