Even with the passage of time, many women still retain their youthful energy and enthusiasm, but post-menopausal changes can affect a woman’s quality of life in unexpected ways. Now, there is a gentle laser therapy that can help millions of women who are silently suffering.
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 it work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy that is 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, which each take less than five minutes to perform.
When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over an 18-week period.
How long does it last?
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 after the procedure is done?
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?
Price for the initial 3 treatments is $1800 paid at the time of the first treatment.
Single maintenance treatment may be needed every 12 – 18 months is $600.
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.
Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
No processing code has been established.
