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 stress urinary incontinence – as well as vaginal dryness, itching & irritation, and painful sex.
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 vaginal walls) begins to occur.
Stress incontinence occurs when the pelvic tissues and muscles that support the urethra at the opening of the bladder become weaker – due to pregnancy, weight gain, hormonal changes, injury or aging.
The laser light energy emitted by the MonaLisa Touch wand stimulates collagen and elastin production within the vagina. This helps to strengthen and thicken the tissues and muscles in the vaginal walls and surrounding pelvic areas – and naturally strengthens and thickens the muscles and tissue surrounding the bladder – which helps reduce or eliminate certain types of urinary incontinence.
The rejuvenated vaginal tissue also generates more lubrication, reducing painful dryness and remedying painful sex. And, the improvement in vaginal tightness also improves sexual sensation for both the female patient and her sexual partner.
MonaLisa touch treatments for urinary incontinence are non surgical, and non-hormonal. There are no known side effects, and absolutely no downtime.
