What Is MonaLisa Touch® Laser Treatment?
MonaLisa Touch® is a unique laser treatment designed to help patients that are uncomfortable with the tone/texture of their pelvic skin, skin tags/lesions, condylomas, genital warts, or excess labial tissue. By delivering CO2 laser energy to tissue, MonaLisa Touch procedures help resolve skin discoloration and other undesired skin abnormalities, helping women feel like themselves again It also can help patients suffering from the symptoms of Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause, also referred to as Vulvovaginal Atrophy. Symptoms of GSM include: vaginal dryness, vulvar dryness, vaginal itching, painful sex (dyspareunia) and painful urination (dysuria).The use of the MonaLisa Touch® technology helps to stimulate the production of collagen and improve the elasticity of the tissues.
How can the MonaLisa Touch Laser be used?
The MonaLisa Touch® system involves the use of a small wand that uses a small mirror to direct a laser into tissues inside the vagina. The wand is inserted into the vagina, and the laser is shot intermittently into tissues along the inside wall. The lasers go directly into the tissues, rejuvenating them and stimulating the production of collagen that is needed to help improve the texture and tone of the tissue.
What can I expect from the MonaLisa Touch procedure?
Many women who have had the procedure claim to have few, if any, side effects. Lasers are considered to be minimally invasive. Although the tissue is not incised or surgically cut, the laser does permeate the tissue, causing mild tenderness and a small amount of inflammation. While there are few side effects to speak of, slight discomfort and a small amount of vaginal discharge may be expected as with any other type of procedure that is performed within the vagina.
