MonaLisa Touch®: A Novel Laser Therapy for Gynecologic Health
Patients are calling it “Life-Changing”
MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks.
In both European and US clinical trials, women reported symptom relief after the very first treatment and even greater improvement after treatments 2 and 3.
We have seen the benefits as early as 12 hours after the first treatment.
We are one of the first few practices to offer this cutting edge technology to our patients with Genito – urinary syndrome of menopause.
