Estrogen is a female hormone that maintains the elastic, moist, and supple skin of the vulva and vagina. Your ovaries produce estrogen. After menopause or surgical removal, estrogen levels decline and the internal vaginal skin often becomes thin, dry, and fragile. Estrogen levels also decrease during the postpartum period if you are breastfeeding. This low-estrogen vaginal disorder is called vaginal atrophy. Millions of women experience these changes in their gynecologic health as it interferes with their personal lives and daily comfort. Many women also suffer silently and those who seek treatment find their options limited. Estrogen replacement may not be desired or, in the case of breast cancer patients, an absolute contraindication.
Now there’s something you can do about it that really works
MonaLisa Touch: fast, simple and safe. MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is a simple procedure that takes less than 5 minutes.
It delivers both immediate and lasting relief. And it’s clinically proven to work.
- Requires no anesthesia
- Minimal side effects
- No downtime
- Symptom relief after just one treatment
Thousands of women in clinical trials have been successfully treated since 2012 and have called MonaLisa Touch a “life-changing” therapy. MonaLisa delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response in the vaginal canal. Cellular changes in the collagen and elastin which promote healthier vaginal tissue starts almost immediately. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks. Many women report symptom relief after the very first treatment and even greater improvement after treatments 2 and 3.
Q & A
Q: What happens during treatment?
A: The procedure will seem similar to your annual exam, and will likely be even quicker. Your healthcare provider will insert the laser into your vagina and deliver laser energy “pulses.” The total procedure time is less than 5 minutes.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: The laser energy itself is virtually painless. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser tip insertion during the first procedure if there is gynecologic dryness.
Q: How soon can I expect results?
A: Many patients have reported that they experience relief right away. Virtually all patients have experienced relief by the second treatment.
Q: How long does treatment last?
A: MonaLisa Touch provides lasting results. A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief.
Q: Who performs the procedure?
A: Both Dr. Scott Osmun and Dr. Joan Loveland are certified to treat patients.
