Monia Lisa Touch Procedure
MonaLisa Touch is an FDA approved procedure for the treatment of Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA), to include but not limited to vaginal dryness, itching, pain, and incontinence.
Look for doctors in your area that are now offering this procedure, ask for a consult first to understand how it works. It is not currently covered by insurance (new procedures take time to be accepted and coded for coverage, then the AMA has to approve it before it will be covered on insurance policies). OBGYN and Urology specialists have been some of the first medical providers to offer this treatment in the US.
Prices vary and average $1500 per treatment in US.
Risks for patients treated with Mona Lisa Touch are minimal. Most women report temporary side effects, such as slight redness or swelling and 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.
Factors that determine dryness, fragility, 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 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.
The Mona Lisa Touch is an in office procedure. It is a walk-in — walk-out procedure that does not require any anesthesia (if you prefer anesthesia, it is available) and takes less than ten minutes.
