MonaLisa Touch Q & A

Greensboro OBGYN Associates

How does aging affect the vagina?

Over time, your body produces fewer hormones, including estrogen. This decrease leads to vaginal atrophy, which is characterized by a number of annoying and often painful symptoms. Those include:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal itching
  • Vaginal burning
  • Shortening of the vaginal canal
  • Decreased lubrication during intercourse, often leading to pain

The last thing you want to have to worry about throughout your day is keeping yourself comfortable. Hormone therapy is an option, but if you’re looking for a way to alleviate the symptoms of vaginal atrophy without introducing hormones, MonaLisa Touch is ideal.

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

This innovative treatment is designed specifically for women struggling with vaginal atrophy. It’s a safe, comfortable, and effective procedure that rejuvenates the vaginal area, restoring your moisture levels and overall comfort. The MonaLisa Touch procedure uses a fractional CO2 laser to send energy into both your surface and deep soft tissue.

As the laser directs the energy throughout your tissue, it stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps the tissues in your body stay supple and elastic. At the same time, it creates micro-injuries throughout your vagina. The body sends healing and regenerative agents to those micro-injuries, stimulating the production of new, healthy tissue throughout the vagina.

Is the MonaLisa Touch treatment painful?

The best part about this groundbreaking treatment is that it’s quick, effective, and virtually painless even without the use of anesthesia. In fact, a single treatment takes just five minutes and can be performed from the comfort and convenience of the Greensboro OB-GYN Associates office.

You may be advised to abstain from sexual activity for a few days after your procedure, but you can return to all of your normal activities immediately afterward.

What should I expect after my MonaLisa Touch treatment?

After your MonaLisa Touch procedure, you’ll notice increased vaginal comfort throughout the day and during intercourse. The results are long-lasting but, if you want to keep that freshly rejuvenated feeling, Greensboro OB-GYN Associates also offers booster sessions. These sessions are usually scheduled at 18-month intervals.

Aging doesn’t have to put a cramp in your sexual lifestyle. If you’re ready to turn back the clock with MonaLisa Touch, call Greensboro OB-GYN Associates or book your appointment online today.
