MonaLisa Touch Q&A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a noninvasive laser treatment that can address vaginal health issues, like dryness and atrophy. The system delivers laser energy into the vaginal tissues, stimulating the production of new collagen, a protein vital to healthy tissue.
As new collagen develops, vaginal tissue plumps up and becomes firmer. This healthy tissue reduces symptoms like vaginal dryness and irritation and also increases your natural lubrication ability to address painful sex.
Treatment with MonaLisa Touch can also reduce the frequency of unexpected urine leaks if you experience minor urinary incontinence.
When should I consider treatments with MonaLisa Touch?
As you get older, your vaginal health changes. Hormone fluctuations associated with the natural aging process cause vaginal tissues to atrophy or shrink. This results in persistent irritation and dryness that can be intense enough to interfere with your quality of life.
You may be a candidate for treatment with MonaLisa Touch technology if you suffer from symptoms like:
Minor urinary incontinence
Treatment with MonaLisa Touch may also be beneficial if you have lichen sclerosis, a condition that causes white, patchy skin to develop in the genital and anal area that’s thinner than normal tissue. Lichen sclerosis is common in women during their postmenopausal years.
Dr. Sargent can determine if you’re a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch therapy after reviewing your medical history and the severity of your symptoms. He also takes time to discuss your expectations for the results of your treatment. Dr. Sargent has over five years of experience in MonaLisa Touch technology for revitalizing vaginal health.
What can I expect during treatment with MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch treatments are noninvasive, and Dr. Sargent performs them in-office for your comfort and convenience. You can expect to lie on an exam table like you would for a pelvic exam. Dr. Sargent inserts the slender laser device into the vaginal canal, which delivers energy into the tissues.
Treatment with MonaLisa Touch is painless, and your procedure time is minimal. You can expect to return to your normal routine immediately after your appointment without any limitations.
Dr. Sargent may recommend additional sessions with MonaLisa technology to achieve optimal results of your vaginal rejuvenation therapy.
