MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch treatment is a laser-based system that can help with issues like vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, and pain during intercourse. These types of issues can be quite common after childbirth and when going through menopause.
The MonaLisa Touch laser releases concentrated CO2, sending it directly into the vaginal tissues. This CO2 prompts the body to start producing new collagen and helps with natural healing. This treatment can essentially help return the vaginal tissue to its former state, which means you won't have to suffer from problems like painful vaginal dryness any longer.
With what issues can MonaLisa Touch help?
MonaLisa Touch can help with issues including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal burning
- Poor vaginal tone
- Vaginal laxity
- Some types of urinary incontinence
What is the MonaLisa Touch treatment process like?
The MonaLisa Touch treatment process is performed on an outpatient basis at B. Robert Bamshad, MD. When you arrive for your appointment, treatment can begin almost right away as no anesthesia is needed. You'll simply lie down while the treatment is administered. During the MonaLisa Touch treatment, you'll likely experience a strong sensation of icy cold as the CO2 is delivered, but it isn’t painful or uncomfortable.
How long does the MonaLisa Touch treatment take?
The treatment is usually quite fast, taking around 30-60 minutes from start to finish. Once the MonaLisa Touch treatment is complete, you'll be able to return to your regular routine immediately.
How many MonaLisa Touch treatments will you need?
Most patients need about three treatments for best results. Each treatment is planned around 40-60 days apart to make sure that the body can maximize healing between sessions.
When will results be seen?
Results usually show very quickly. Most patients notice a difference after only the first session, in fact. As the body starts the process of tissue repair and collagen generation, the results will continue to improve. Optimal results are typically evident at a month or so after the final MonaLisa Touch treatment session.
Are there any post-treatment guidelines to follow?
There are few restrictions to worry about with MonaLisa Touch treatment. You'll need to avoid intercourse for a couple of days to allow your body time to start healing, but other than that you can follow your usual routine after treatment.
