LIFECHANGING NOVEL THERAPY FOR GYNECOLOGIC HEALTH

MONALISA TOUCH

Vaginal Rejuvenation Painless Laser Therapy

Want to regain your femininity?
Now it’s possible with no pain, no side effects and in just a few minutes. MonaLisa Touch is a painless and minimally invasive laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation. By gently acting on the tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.

Do you suffer from vaginal discomfort?
Vaginal discomforts as dryness, burning, urinary incontinence can occur also during pre-menopause or after childbirth. The main cause is often atrophic vaginitis: a disease that can adversely affect your life and the relationship with your partner.

There’s something you can do about it that really works.

IS THE MONALISA TOUCH RIGHT FOR YOU?

What is the MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. The MonaLisa Touch was first available outside the US where thousands of patients have been treated worldwide.

How does it work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy that is delivered via a side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.

What clinical trials have been conducted on the MonaLisa Touch?
A multisite study was conducted by Dr. Mickey Karram, Director of Fellowship Program on Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH and Dr. Eric Sokol, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center. The trial assessed the use of CO2 fractional laser therapy on 30 women with vaginal health issues due to natural or induced menopause. All of the patients in the trial were treated with the MonaLisa Touch laser therapy.

Results were:

  • Overwhelmingly positive and immediate results
  • Highly statistically significant improvement in symptoms after first treatment
  • Escalation of progress with each subsequent treatment
  • *Women in the study either experienced natural menopause or induced menopause as the result of hysterectomy or drug-induced suppression of ovarian function (chemotherapy, radiations, and anticancer drugs such as Tamoxifen).
    A study was done by Dr. Stefano Salvatore*, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vita- Salute San Raffaele University to assess the feasibility of fractional C02 laser in the treatment of 50 women suffering changes in their gynecologic health.
  • 42 patients (84%) showed significant improvement in their physical and mental quality of life scores over baseline and were satisfied with the treatment.

In addition to the multisite study, there are currently 8 published studies with 6 ongoing studies.

Where can I have this done?
The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure performed by gynecologists, urogynecologists, and urologists.

Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.

How long does it take?
Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, which each take less than five minutes to perform.

When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over an 18-week period.

How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.*
*Your doctor will determine with you if follow-up treatments are required.

What are my limitations after the procedure is done?
Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.

For which patients is this treatment appropriate?
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female suffering from issues from a decline in estrogen, as well as those who are experiencing symptoms as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.

How much will the procedure cost?
Patients should contact their healthcare professional for additional information.

Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
Yes, the MonaLisa Touch therapy is particularly well suited for patients who cannot, or prefer not to receive estrogen therapy.
