MonaLisa Touch is a revolutionary laser treatment that stimulates the tissue of the vaginal wall to build collagen, a compound that strengthens skin and other tissue for optimal function. Because the treatment rehydrates the tissue, you’ll have fewer symptoms of vaginal dryness and burning.
During a session, Dr. Brown inserts a laser probe gently into your vagina. The probe emits energy to stimulate the rejuvenation of tissue of the vaginal wall. The laser treatment, which takes only a few minutes, is well tolerated by most women and isn’t painful. Rather, you experience a slight vibration.
Women benefit if they are in perimenopause or menopause and have issues of vaginal discomfort. Menopause may occur naturally due to age or as a result of illness and medical treatments, such as occurs with breast cancer. Women who aren’t in menopause but may have compromised vaginal tissue — such as soon after childbirth — also benefit.
MonaLisa Touch can successfully address vaginal discomfort associated with thinning tissue. This includes:
Dr. Brown can discuss your situation with you and tell you what results to expect.
Women often feel a benefit after just one treatment, but the doctors usually recommend that you have three sessions total, scheduled six weeks apart, to maximize results. Dr. Brown establish a treatment plan for you.
Recovery from a MonaLisa Touch session is quite quick, and the improvements in your vaginal health are almost immediate.
In the first day or two after a MonaLisa Touch session, you may have some slight discomfort. But you’ll most likely be able to get back to your normal routine within three days. The doctors may recommend you take some immediate precautions right after treatment, such as limiting physical exercise and hot baths. You may need to wait three to four days before resuming sexual activity.
