MonaLisa Touch is a painless vaginal laser treatment that delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal walls using a slender wand. It is an effective, state-of-the-art treatment for vaginal dryness, itching & irritation, as well as painful sex, and stress urinary incontinence. More than 90% of patients report relief from these painful and embarrassing symptoms of vaginal atrophy for one year or longer.
Flint ObGyn was one of the first gynecology offices in Genesee County to make this ground-breaking and life changing nonsurgical treatment available to our patients.
The estrogen in a woman’s body helps keep her vaginal tissue supple and moist. As hormone production decreases with age, menopause or as a result of surgery or medications, “vaginal atrophy” (thinning and drying of the vagina) begins to occur.
The laser light energy emitted by the MonaLisa Touch wand stimulates collagen and elastin production within the vagina, which helps to strengthen and thicken the tissues and muscles in the vaginal walls and surrounding pelvic areas.
The rejuvenated vaginal tissue once again becomes plumper and tighter. This not only increases sexual sensation, it also helps put an end to embarrassing bladder leaks. The rejuvenated vaginal tissue also generates more lubrication, reducing painful dryness and remedying painful sex.
MonaLisa touch treatments for painful sex and urinary incontinence are non surgical, and non-hormonal. There are no known side effects and absolutely no downtime.
In addition to treating painful sex and urinary incontinence, MonaLisa touch has also proven beneficial for women suffering from lichen sclerosis, vulvodynia, frequent urinary tract infections (UTI’s) and/or vaginal infections.
