No, the procedure does not usually require anesthetic. However, if a patient prefers, an anesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment to help reduce discomfort.
Every procedure carries some minimal risks. However, MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure performed under the supervision of a medical professional.
The MonaLisa Touch helps alleviate symptoms related to estrogen deficiencies and vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem among pre- and post-menopausal women. By stimulating collagen production in the vaginal walls, the treatment can restore the vagina’s function and eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which often become particularly acute during intercourse. As a result, patients feel more comfortable and their intimate relationships are enhanced.
Since the MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is minimally invasive, patients can return home to recover following the procedure. Patients should refrain from sexual activity for two or three days following treatment, but can otherwise resume their normal routines. Your doctor will give you specific recommendations to ensure a speedy recovery.
Most patients report a reduction in symptoms such as dryness, burning, itching and pain during intercourse, which substantially improves their quality of life. Though three sessions are recommended, patients will start to notice results after the first treatment.
