MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is an effective laser treatment option for women who have symptoms caused by the genitourinary syndrome of menopause, or GSM. This procedure is minimally invasive, and Dr. Ohanian can perform it in the comfort of her clinic.
How Does the MonaLisa Touch Laser Work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses C02 fractional laser technology to treat many of the worst symptoms of GSM. This laser works similarly to aesthetic lasers, but it’s designed specifically for the vagina. The laser energy directed at the vagina during treatment stimulates new collagen production in the vaginal walls, which increases blood flow and lubrication in the area.
When is MonaLisa Touch Appropriate?
If you’ve experienced vaginal dryness, itching, painful sexual intercourse, or painful urination after menopause, the MonaLisa Touch can alleviate your symptoms without causing pain or other inconvenient side effects. If you aren’t sure whether MonaLisa Touch is right for you, you should talk to Dr. Ohanian to learn more about the procedure and your other options.
What Should Patients Expect During MonaLisa Touch Treatments?
Dr. Ohanian will perform MonaLisa Touch laser vaginal revitalization in the comfort of her clinic without general anesthesia. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and you can return home immediately afterward.
How Soon Will Patients See Results?
You may notice some results immediately after your first treatment with MonaLisa Touch. However, you may need up to four appointments to achieve your best outcome. To find out how many treatments you may need, talk to Dr. Ohanian.
Is Treatment with MonaLisa Touch Painful?
The MonaLisa Touch procedure isn’t particularly painful. However, Dr. Ohanian can apply an anesthetic to help with any discomfort experienced during the procedure. You should avoid sexual activity for a few days following the procedure, but you can resume all of your other normal activities without any downtime.
What are the Risks of MonaLisa Touch?
Like every procedure, MonaLisa Touch has minimal risks. However, this procedure is generally safe for women. Dr. Ohanian will explain all of the risks and possible side effects before you schedule the procedure. After the procedure, you should report any worrisome or unexpected side effects you experience to Dr. Ohanian as soon as possible.
