Ladies, we all know the changes that occur in our bodies due to aging and health developments – our vaginas are no exception. One very common issue that countless women suffer from is vaginal atrophy (VA), which is thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to a decrease in estrogen. VA most often occurs after menopause, but can also develop at other times when the body’s estrogen level declines such as following cancer treatment or breast feeding.
This condition comes with a host of potential symptoms including vaginal dryness, burning, itching, and painful intercourse. Naturally, these unpleasant symptoms have a negative impact on a woman’s quality of life and wellbeing including a disruption of a woman’s sexual health, making it painful to have sex.
For some women, hormone replacement therapy can be an option, but for those patients who cannot take or choose not take hormones, we finally have another, safer option to alleviate the burdensome symptoms of VA. Enter the MonaLisa Touch laser.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a CO2 medical laser that is FDA-approved specifically to treat vaginal dryness and painful intercourse caused by vaginal atrophy. The MonaLisa Touch Laser works by delivering controlled energy to the vaginal tissue to revitalize the cells in the vaginal mucosa (skin). This process encourages collagen production which is essential for vaginal health. Significant natural lubrication returns, allowing the vagina to perform like the well-estrogenized vagina of a young, healthy woman.
The MonaLisa Touch allows a short, five-minute treatment that is painless with no significant complications, noted through years of clinical trials in Europe and Australia, and more recently in the United States. In our practice, we have a 100% satisfaction rate thus far as patients confirm the successful alleviation of the troublesome symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
How Much Does the MonaLisa Touch Cost?
Women have the option to have the MonaLisa Touch performed around the vulva, which is the outside area of the vagina, around the vulva. The areas of treatment are some of the major factors that determine the price of this treatment. Generally, most women pay between $2,700–$4,500 for a series of MonaLisa Touch treatments.
Dr. Wesley Anne Brady emphasizes that in order to be completely certain about the total cost of MonaLisa Touch treatment us to schedule an initial consultation. During this visit, all details will be discussed and thoroughly evaluated allowing her to devise a treatment plan for the patient.
