MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch®?
MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that restores vaginal health by generating new elastin, collagen, and blood vessels in the vaginal wall. With the help of this minimally invasive, CO2 fractional laser therapy, you can treat symptoms of vaginal atrophy including:
- Pain during sex
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Chronic bladder infections
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal laxity
MonaLisa Touch is extremely effective at restoring vaginal moisture and elasticity, and over 90% of women who have had treatment report satisfaction.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
MonaLisa Touch features a side-firing probe from which its gentle laser energy emerges. To deliver that energy, your Berks Women’s Health practice member inserts the probe into your vaginal canal.
There, the laser emits a two-part pulse, which simultaneously targets the vaginal wall’s surface tissue and deep tissue, where it prompts revitalization.
Most women notice an improvement after just two treatments. To achieve full results, though, you must attend three MonaLisa Touch sessions, each of which takes less than five minutes to complete, spaced six weeks apart.
The practice performs the procedure in-office and without anesthesia. While you may experience some discomfort, you won’t feel any pain. To most patients, the treatment feels like a gentle vibration.
After each treatment, refrain from sexual activities for two to three days. Also, note that after you complete your initial treatments, you need to come in every 18 months for treatment to maintain your results.
Is MonaLisa Touch right for me?
MonaLisa Touch has helped countless women regain their confidence and a sense of intimacy with their partner. MonaLisa Touch may be right for you as well if you’re suffering from the side effects of estrogen decline, whether that decline is from natural menopause, or from procedures like
- Breast cancer treatments
MonaLisa Touch is an ideal solution for women who want to restore their vaginal elasticity and its ability to produce moisture, but who don’t want or can’t have estrogen therapy.
