Mention the MonaLisa Touch laser treatment in a group of women, and 3 top questions will immediately surface: what is the MonaLisa Touch, is it painful, and what are the expected results? Let’s answer these 3 top questions that we are getting from both doctors and patients about the revolutionary MonaLisa Touch treatment that we offer here at Advanced Gynecology Solutions. Watch Dr. Rabin’s video below!
First, what is the MonaLisa Touch treatment? This is a revolutionary treatment designed to treat vaginal atrophy, a condition that occurs in over 40% of postmenopausal women. Vaginal atrophy can cause itching, burning, dryness, and difficulty or pain having sex. Vaginal atrophy is a big problem, but many women are not coming forward to discuss it with their doctors. We haven’t had a whole lot of effective treatments until now. The MonaLisa Touch treatment is a fractional CO2 laser, similar to the laser treatment that has been used for decades to help with aging skin. This treatment is performed intravaginally here in the office at Advanced Gynecology Solutions in a matter of five minutes. Three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is all it takes!
Second, is it painful? No! The MonaLisa Touch treatment is virtually painless. With rare exception all we’ve heard from our patients is that they could feel the machine itself vibrating. MonaLisa Touch has not caused them any pain or discomfort. This does not require any pain medication, numbing creams, or anesthesia.
Third, what are the expected results? The MonaLisa Touch treatment restores vaginal elasticity, moisture and thickness to the skin. We measure results through the vaginal pH, how well the vagina tolerates dilation, and patient testimonials of women saying, “I feel like myself again.” The short terms results are stunning. Within the first week patients are feeling 50% to 70% better. After the second and third treatment patients are feeling 90-100% better. These results last for at least a year. At our Burbank office we are seeing patients come back for a maintenance treatment once per year, much like their annual exam.
