Women’s Health Associates is pleased to announce that Dr. Evelina Swartzman is now offering the MonaLisa Touch Therapy.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. The MonaLisa Touch was first available outside the US, where thousands of patients have been treated worldwide.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy delivered via a side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.
For which patients is this treatment appropriate?
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female suffering from issues from a decline in estrogen, including those experiencing symptoms as a result of:
- Natural menopause
- Hysterectomy with removal of ovaries
- Breast cancer treatment
- Postpartum hormonal changes
Symptoms of Menopause include:
- Hot Flashes
- Sleep Disturbances
- Mood Changes
- Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM)
- Vaginal Dryness
- Pain with Intercourse
- Urinary Symptoms (frequency, urgency, nocturia, dysuria, and recurrent urinary tract infections )
Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
How long does it take?
Patients receive three treatments spaced six weeks apart, each taking less than five minutes to perform.
When will I see results? How long does it last?
Most patients feel improvement after the first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments, generally spaced over 18 weeks.
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.*
*Your doctor will determine with you if follow–up treatments are required.
What are my limitations post-procedure?
Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
How much will the procedure cost?
The price for the initial three treatments is $1800, paid at the time of the first treatment.
A single maintenance treatment, which may be needed every 12 – 18 months, is $600 per treatment.
Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
No. A processing code for insurance has not been established.
Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
Yes. The MonaLisa Touch therapy is particularly well suited for patients who cannot or prefer not to receive estrogen therapy.
