Who is Eligible for MonaLisa Touch Therapy?
The MonaLisa Touch can be a great procedure for you if you suffer from vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy occurs when a lack of estrogen causes the walls of your vagina to degrade. As you go through menopause, the chances of suffering from vaginal atrophy increase significantly due to the natural decline in estrogen production. Some common signs that you may be suffering from vaginal atrophy include the following:
- Vaginal itching
- Vaginal burning
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Pain during urination
- Urgency during urination
- Increased urinary tract infections
- Light bleeding after having sexual intercourse
If you’re suffering from any of the above symptoms, you should call Dr. Kothandaraman and have a comprehensive assessment conducted to determine the cause. After Dr.Kothandaraman determines the problem, you can explore whether you are eligible for MonaLisa Touch therapy.
How Does MonaLisa Touch Therapy Work?
The MonaLisa Touch is a procedure that uses a fractional CO2-laser with a vaginal probe attached to it in order to deliver the appropriate amount of heat for the therapy. This procedure can significantly help speed up the repair of vaginal tissues and promotes the production of elastin, collagen, and lubrication by your vaginal tissue.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The MonaLisa Touch is a quick procedure that only takes approximately five minutes for Dr.Prema to administer. However, most treatments require repeat treatments of about 3-5 times, with each procedure being roughly 5-6 weeks apart.
What is the Recovery Process?
You should feel perfectly fine following the procedure. However, you should refrain from sexual activity for at least three days after undergoing the MonaLisa Touch to allow for internal healing, so you can receive the full benefit from the procedure.
