MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is vaginal dryness?
Vaginal dryness is a condition that tends to become more pronounced during menopause. During this period, your estrogen levels tend to drop, a factor that affects the vaginal tissues.
Common symptoms that tend to manifest during menopause include thinning and drying of the vaginal wall. Most of these conditions such as itching and burning have an overall negative impact on intimate relationships.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is not at all complicated. In fact, the procedure lasts no more than 30 minutes. So how exactly does it work? The Iworking principle of the treatment is a small C02 fractional laser, which is inserted into your vagina. The device then produces laser pulses designed to stimulate collagen production in your vaginal walls.
The collagen networks in turn increase blood flow to your vagina, which helps with lubrication.
Vaginal Dryness Treatment
One of the most effective FDA-approved treatments recommended by Dr. Brooks is MonaLisa Touch® to restore vaginal lubrication. The treatment is ideal because it does not rely on hormones, nor poses any severe side effects for the patient. Ideally, this technique makes use of laser energy to perform numerous remedial procedures, they include:
Stimulating new collagen formation
Restoring vaginal canal elasticity
Increasing vaginal moisture
The only side effects you may experience include spotting and discharge otherwise the procedure is hassle-free. However, you will need to refrain from sexual activities for at least two days to allow for the healing process.
How is the treatment performed?
