The MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser is a tool that the team at Enliven, PC. can use to perform minimally-invasive, painless vaginal rejuvenation procedures for women in Colorado Springs, Colorado. To learn more about this procedure, please contact Enliven, PC. today to schedule your consultation.
The MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser is a system designed to treat vaginal atrophy. It is a condition that usually occurs after menopause, when estrogen levels in your body drop significantly.
If you have vaginal atrophy, the cells in your vaginal mucosa don’t receive the nourishment and moisture they need. This leads to uncomfortable symptoms, such as dryness, burning, and itching. The MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treats vaginal atrophy and eliminates these symptoms.
Some of the benefits of treatment with MonaLisa Touch include:
The MonaLisa Touch procedure shouldn’t cause any significant discomfort.
MonaLisa Touch is minimally-invasive, which means fewer risks and complications.
MonaLisa Touch treats the underlying cause of vaginal dryness and other uncomfortable symptoms, providing long-lasting results.
MonaLisa Touch is often performed as an outpatient procedure, and you can usually return to your normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
The MonaLisa Touch laser creates tiny micro-lesions on the vaginal walls to stimulate the production of new collagen. As the tissue regenerates, the symptoms of vaginal atrophy disappear. The tissue regeneration process triggered by MonaLisa Touch lasts for several weeks, so you’ll notice continued improvement over time.
MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for women experiencing vaginal dryness and other symptoms of vaginal atrophy. There are very few risks associated with this procedure, so most women will be good candidates. However, the doctor will review your medical history and discuss the procedure with you in detail before scheduling it.
Most women notice an improvement in their symptoms after only one treatment session. However, depending on the severity of your condition, you may need up to three treatments. The doctor usually performs these treatments 40-60 days apart.
Because MonaLisa Touch doesn’t require general anesthesia or a surgical incision, it poses very few risks and complications are rare.
After your procedure, you may notice some mild swelling or redness. However, most side effects disappear within two days.
