MonaLisa Touch® in Park City, IL restores vaginal health, provides symptom relief without surgery
Kegels can strengthen loose or weak vaginal muscles. But pelvic floor exercises don’t work to relieve all patients’ vaginal dryness, itching, pain, and other symptoms that interfere with sexual satisfaction and quality of life. Likewise, not every patient is a suitable candidate (or wants) hormone replacement therapy to restore vaginal elasticity and suppleness. Surgical techniques are invasive and associated with risks. Fortunately, modern technologies are available that actually work to noninvasively improve post-menopausal symptoms and gynecological concerns. MonaLisa Touch® in Park City, IL at Partners in Pelvic Health North Shore Urogynecology is even safe for women with breast cancer who can’t receive estrogen therapy.
Introducing: MonaLisa Touch®
Led by Board-certified urogynecologist Dr. Sanjay Gandhi, our practice is adept at safely and precisely using advanced non-surgical therapies such as lasers. MonaLisa Touch® is a laser device that, when applied to the vaginal tissue during a quick in-office visit, triggers the production of collagen. This approach targets both surface and deep tissues for vaginal rejuvenation. The energy that is generated by the laser is delivered precisely to the treatment area via a probe, which is generally well-tolerated. Many patients describe the treatment as feeling similar to a gentle vibration. Since it is not an invasive procedure and is tolerated so well, MonaLisa Touch® doesn’t require anesthesia for comfort. Treatment can be completed in five minutes. There is nothing to recover from. So, it’s a “no downtime” procedure. Though, patients should abstain from having sex for two or three days after treatment. Patients also appreciate that they can be symptom-free without chemicals or hormones.
MonaLisa Touch® gets results
Most of the thousands of women who have been treated worldwide since MonaLisa Touch® was introduced in 2008 have reported symptom relief after just one treatment session. However, optimal improvements are generally achieved after two or three treatments. Each treatment should be spaced around six weeks apart. We recommend annual maintenance treatments to maintain the boost confidence and quality of life-through these results.
