This is an in-office procedure for vaginal dryness or painful sex caused by the vaginal changes associated with menopause, childbirth, and other gyn conditions.
Mona Lisa is an innovative and advanced gynecological procedure offered at select gynecology offices. It utilizes a state-of-the-art laser technology known as fractional CO2 laser to address various gynecological concerns, particularly those related to vaginal health.
The Mona Lisa procedure is primarily focused on addressing symptoms associated with genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). GSM refers to the changes that occur in the vaginal tissues due to declining estrogen levels during menopause. These changes can lead to symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, burning, pain during intercourse, and urinary incontinence.
During the Mona Lisa procedure, the fractional CO2 laser is carefully applied to the vaginal tissues. The laser energy stimulates collagen production and improves blood circulation, which helps to rejuvenate and restore the vaginal tissues. This leads to increased moisture, improved elasticity, and a reduction in discomfort or pain during intercourse. Additionally, the treatment can help alleviate urinary incontinence symptoms by strengthening the vaginal tissues and supporting the urethra.
Mona Lisa is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that is performed in the comfort of the gynecologist's office. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and most patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. The number of recommended treatment sessions may vary depending on the individual's specific needs, but multiple sessions are typically advised to achieve optimal results.
By offering the Mona Lisa procedure, gynecological offices aim to provide women with a safe, effective, and non-hormonal option for addressing vaginal health concerns associated with menopause. This innovative procedure can significantly improve quality of life and restore confidence for women experiencing symptoms related to genitourinary syndrome of menopause.
