MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a noninvasive treatment for the vaginal atrophy experienced by many women following a fall in estrogen levels after menopause. When estrogen levels fall, collagen production slows, and your vagina may become dry and lose its elasticity.
Without enough collagen, skin and other tissues become thinner and more likely to sag and droop. MonaLisa Touch uses fractional CO2 laser technology to increase collagen production, reversing the effects of vaginal atrophy and restoring balance to the mucous membrane.*
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
MonaLisa Touch uses laser technology specifically designed for this purpose, so there’s no need for incisions, injections, or medications. Your practitioner at The Well For Health directs the laser scanner onto your vaginal walls, where it causes microlesions in the surface tissues.
These painless lesions activate your body’s natural healing processes and cause new collagen fibers to grow by neocollagenesis, a perfectly natural process that’s safe and effective in restoring vaginal health.
MonaLisa Touch improves the pH balance in your vagina, helping to reduce the risk of infections taking hold. The treatment rehydrates the vaginal mucosa and thickens the epithelium to improve the tone of your vagina.
What conditions can MonaLisa Touch treat?
Monalisa Touch is an effective treatment for a range of vaginal problems resulting from lowered estrogen levels including:
- Painful intercourse
- Development of yeast infections
- Dryness, itching, or burning in the vaginal area
- Slackening vaginal tissues
Many women also experience a reduction in urinary frequency and stress incontinence.
What happens during a MonaLisa Touch treatment session?
Each treatment only takes a few minutes and isn’t painful. Most women return to their normal activities after taking it a little easier for the first few days following their treatment, but the team at The Well for Health gives you detailed guidance on optimizing your recovery.
You may feel slight discomfort at the treatment site for those first days after your MonaLisa Touch treatment, but there are minimal after effects, and the FDA certifies the treatment as being safe for use in gynecological procedures.
How many MonaLisa Touch treatments will I need?
As soon as you’ve had your first treatment session, your body starts to produce more collagen, so you could well see improvements in the first few weeks.
The total number of sessions you need depends on the nature of your symptoms, but women typically attend between one and three MonaLisa Touch treatment sessions, spaced at intervals of 40-60 days apart.
MonaLisa Touch is a fast and painless way to regain your youthful confidence, so if you want to experience the benefits of this effective treatment, call The Well for Health today, or book an appointment online.
