An Overview of MonaLisa Touch™ for Laser Vaginal Tightening
Vaginal atrophy is quite common in women, especially women in the stages of menopause. Menopause symptoms can occur naturally during the aging process or be induced from cancer treatment. When a woman in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area experiences a decline in estrogen during menopause, the vagina goes through numerous unwanted changes that cause discomfort. Mona Lisa Partners offers an innovative vaginal atrophy treatment – MonaLisa Touch™. MonaLisa Touch is a laser vaginal tightening system designed to encourage collagen production, improve laxity and decrease vaginal atrophy symptoms.
What to Know About Vaginal Atrophy
The vulvovaginal area is extremely sensitive to a decline in estrogen levels. When estrogen begins to decline in a woman’s body, either naturally or induced, the vagina experiences troublesome and painful changes. These changes include:
- Laxity and weakness of the vaginal mucosa
- Vaginal burning, itching and dryness
- Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
Treating Vaginal Atrophy with Laser Vaginal Tightening
A vaginal atrophy treatment gaining popularity throughout the country is MonaLisa Touch. The fractional CO2 energy found in MonaLisa Touch encourages collagen production. Collagen is considered one of the building blocks of healthy vaginal tissue, as well as a strengthening agent that helps tighten the vaginal wall and lead to an increase in vaginal lubrication. With increased lubrication, women are able to experience alleviated vaginal dryness, itching and burning, as well as experience decreased pain during and after intercourse.
MonaLisa Touch™ is the Only Vaginal Atrophy Treatment Supported by Clinical Studies
MonaLisa Touch is the only vaginal atrophy treatment proven by not only clinical results, but also by histological and ultrastructural studies. Numerous scientific publications demonstrate the effective vaginal tissue regeneration that is achieved by the innovative combination of CO2 energy, the structure of the D-Pulse and adequate emission power found in the system.
The overall purpose of utilizing laser vaginal tightening to treat vaginal atrophy is to promote and recover pre-menopausal tissue by regenerating new, healthy collagen. Collagen helps to regain hydrated mucosa which eliminates common atrophy symptoms.
In a study performed by Prof. S. Salvatore, after three MonaLisa Touch treatments menopausal women experienced numerous benefits, including:
- 90% improvement in laxity
- 85% improvement in itching
- 84% improvement in burning
- 76% improvement in dryness
- 72% improvement in painful intercourse
In a study performed by Dr. M. Filippini, symptom improvement two months after one MonaLisa Touch treatment in oncological patients includes:
- 88% improvement in itching
- 85% improvement in burning
- 81% improvement in pain
- 81% improvement in painful intercourse
- 79% improvement in dryness
- 74% improvement in heat
With these results, it is easy to see why MonaLisa Touch is a leading laser vaginal tightening system designed to regenerate new collagen and tighten the vaginal wall. Dr. Meredith Lightfoot with Mona Lisa Partners states, “It is so exciting to have a non-estrogen based treatment for our breast cancer patients and others who prefer to avoid hormone use.”
