MonaLisa TouchTM is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment (not to be confused with aesthetic treatments) based on a special CO2 fractional laser, specifically created for this particular application.
The new laser technique for vaginal atrophy
If you are having the symptoms commonly related to vaginal atrophy, you can now obtain a new balance through the recovery of genital physiology and relief from symptoms you suffer from every day.
MonaLisa TouchTM promotes the recovery of genital mucosa balance in a safe and painless way, through methods similar to those used to slow down face skin ageing.
The laser’s effect on vaginal mucosa tissue stimulates the production of collagen, improves functionality of the treated area, and restores proper blood flow.
MonaLisa Touch is natural, safe and mini-invasive, it restores tone to tissues and increases blood flow and lubrication. In one word, it naturally normalises the physiology of the vaginal walls.
This mini-invasive laser-assisted procedure is performed in clinic, on an outpatient basis; it does not involve incisions or sutures and it requires few minutes for every session.
The treatment DOES NOT usually require anaesthesia; however, if the patient prefers, an anaesthetic cream can be used.
Results can be noticed after the first session; normally we recommend a full cycle of 4-5 sessions 45-60 days apart. However, the number of sessions can change according to the level of vaginal atrophy to be treated.
The laser’s stimulation action on collagen improves the state of the mucosa that lines the vaginal walls and promotes rehydration and functional recovery of the vaginal tissues.
Thanks to its action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, this regenerating treatment can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. As a result, most of the treated patients report a substantial improvement in their quality of life and in their sexual life.
The CO2 fractional laser allows effectively treating even cases of loose vagina, caused by loss of mucosal tone, if local muscles or vaginal prolapse are not involved.
This stimulation and rejuvenation process involves cells and tissues and takes a few weeks to be completed. Results will be more noticeable approximately one month and a half after the end of the treatment.
Risks for patients treated with Monalisa TouchTM are minimal. Most women report temporary side effects, slight redness or swelling: some discomfort that usually disappears after one or two days of rest.
During the healing process, it may be recommended to avoid lifting weights or some activities, such as taking a hot bath, or physical exercise. Your doctor will give you specific indications for a speedy recovery.
