The Women’s Health Institute, Rejuvia MedSpa and Dr. Sara J. Bernstein recently announced that they will be the first practice in the southeastern United States to offer patients a revolutionary new procedure called MonaLisa Touch.
The procedure is a fractional carbon dioxide laser made by Cynosure expressly designed to address gynecologic health. MonaLisa Touch is the first laser being used for the treatment of vaginal atrophy, a condition affecting primarily menopausal women, breast cancer survivors and women who have had hysterectomies. Women who suffer from the condition typically complain of dryness, irritation, lack of moisture, painful urination and intercourse, and loss of muscle tone.
The revolutionary MonaLisa Touch treatment takes just 45 seconds, requires no medications and is painless. It offers many improvements over drug therapies. Patients undergo a laser treatment with carbon dioxide laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization and a return to pre-menopausal vaginal health.
This minimally invasive, painless treatment is performed in the office and requires no anesthesia. It is performed in three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.
According to a recent study, all patients experienced positive and immediate results, along with improvement in symptoms.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is particularly well-suited for patients who cannot, or elect not to, receive estrogen hormone therapy.
“Physicians currently have a limited number of treatment options, and many patients cannot use standard therapies,” Bernstein said. “That is why I am so excited to be the first to offer this to my patients.”
The treatment is designed to stimulate and promote the regeneration of collagen fibers and the restoration of hydration and elasticity within the vaginal mucosa. The laser energy heat penetrates to a depth that stimulates the synthesis of new collagen, which results in a thickening of the vaginal lining, increasing moisture, elasticity and improving lubrication.
