Let’s Talk About IT
Introducing MonaLisa Touch, a groundbreaking vaginal treatment for menopausal women.
“IT” is vaginal discomforts, including dryness, burning, itching, and painful sex, all which fall under the umbrella term, “vaginal atrophy.” Vaginal atrophy can occur after vaginal childbirth and/or during menopause. Around 40% of menopausal women suffer from vaginal atrophy, but these women rarely talk to their gynecologists about it. If you’re one of them, it is time to stop suffering in silence and get back to enjoying your sex life!
We at IntimMedicine Specialists are very happy to offer you a vaginal laser procedure called MonaLisa Touch from our office here in Washington, DC. MonaLisa Touch is a painless and minimally invasive therapy that requires 1-3 treatments over the course of a few months. We know you have questions – we have answers!
Who is MonaLisa Touch for?
MonaLisa Touch is for any woman who wants to prevent or treat vaginal symptoms related to a decrease in estrogen, which can occur during menopause, after childbirth during breast feeding, or after many different cancer treatments, especially following breast cancer. If you are looking for a treatment that does not require hormones or surgery, MonaLisa Touch might be your answer!
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
MonaLisa Touch is a laser treatment that reactivates the production of collagen and rebalances the conditions of the superficial vaginal tissues. It does this by gently acting on the vaginal walls. This is a safe and painless process that only takes a few minutes.
Does it hurt?
MonaLisa Touch is completely painless! Patients have reported feeling a slight vibration, and some say that it feels no different than getting a pap smear. For extremely sensitive patients, a form of “Novocaine” can be topically applied without injections to eliminate any discomfort of the procedure.
How long is the recovery, and how long does it take to start working?
We recommend refraining from vaginal intercourse for 3-4 days after each treatment, but you’ll start to notice a positive difference almost right away! More treatments may be recommended depending on the severity of symptoms, but typically 3 sessions are needed for best results.
How long does the treatment last?
Treatments can last for at least a year, depending on the severity of symptoms and your age and lifestyle. We can revisit the need for additional treatment sessions with you after a year or if symptoms recur.
We can help you restore your vivacity! If MonaLisa Touch vaginal therapy sounds right for you, give us a call at 202.293.1000 or email us to make an appointment for a consultation at IntimMedicine in Washington, DC.
