Say goodbye to vaginal dryness with MonaLisa Touch
- Posted on: Apr 15 2021
If you’ve been suffering from vaginal dryness or burning or painful intercourse, you should talk to your doctor about your treatment options. One state-of-the-art FDA-approved treatment called MonaLisa Touch uses laser energy to treat these and other unpleasant vaginal conditions that post-menopausal women experience. Here are some frequently asked questions about this treatment option and why it may be right for you.
What is it?
MonaLisa Touch is a medical laser that delivers a gentle, controlled laser energy to the tissue on the vaginal wall, stimulating a healing response. It restores gynecologic health by generating new collagen, elastin and increased blood flow. This process revives the vaginal wall tissue to its pre-menopausal state.
What does treatment entail?
Usually, patients will need three treatments, spaced six weeks apart. Each procedure only takes about five minutes. You will not need anesthesia during this outpatient, in-office procedure. It’s virtually painless and requires no downtime. Some patients may experience initial discomfort when the probe is first inserted, but the treatment itself isn’t painful. Most patients report a gentle vibration during treatment.
Who should have this treatment?
MonaLisa Touch treatment is appropriate for any female who has gone through menopause and women who are experiencing post-menopausal symptoms after undergoing a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.
Is it safe for breast and ovarian cancer survivors?
This treatment is 100 percent estrogen-free and safe for survivors or anyone else when estrogen replacement is not right for them.
Does insurance cover this treatment?
At this time, insurance doesn’t cover this procedure. Breast and ovarian cancer survivors do receive a discount.
If you are suffering from post-menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness, atrophic vaginitis, vaginal burning, painful intercourse or urinary incontinence, you don’t need to suffer any longer.
