How Can Mona Lisa Improve Gynecological Conditions
November 7, 2022 at 10:00 PM

As we age, women's bodies transform in myriad ways. Unfortunately, this road of renewal, growth, and change is often punctuated by complicated childbirth, illness, and chronic disease. Sadly, the devastating after-effects of these “typical” touchstones of womanhood are easily ignored or written off as expected and unavoidable.

Before Mona Lisa gynecology treatments, too many women accepted catastrophic physiological changes as simply being part and parcel of womanhood. After all, from the first period, through fertility highs and lows, all the way to perimenopause and menopause, female bodies are subject to drastic, often painful, natural changes. However, vaginal dryness & sexual pain, urinary incontinence, tissue loss, and chronic conditions such as lichen sclerosus, don’t have to be among those changes.

Traditional vs. Mona Lisa Gynecology

The treatment of chronic vaginal conditions that cause pain and discomfort has a long history, with some treatments offering more significant relief than others.

  • Vaginal Dryness

Traditional gynecological treatment:

Patients with vaginal dryness are treated with low-dosage hormone treatments like creams, rings, tablets, or vaginal suppositories. Additional remedies include personal water-based lubricants, lotions, and natural oils like grape seed and coconut.

Mona Lisa gynecology:

Mona Lisa treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the vagina, restoring blood flow and natural lubrication back into the vaginal canal. With increased natural lubrication, relaxed sexual activity can resume, which also alleviates vaginal dryness.

  • Urinary Incontinence

Traditional gynecological treatment:

Non-surgical treatments for female incontinence vary widely. Most often, people are recommended pads or absorbent underwear as a first line of defense. Additionally, handheld urinals are suggested for “emergencies”. Finally, catheters or other internal devices are used as the last non-surgical option.

Mona Lisa gynecology:

When incontinence is related to vaginal atrophy, Mona Lisa can relieve symptoms. As blood flow increases after Mona Lisa treatments, vaginal tissue is restored, atrophy reversed, and incontinence alleviated.

  • Vaginal Atrophy

Traditional gynecological treatment:

The thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls is usually the result of hormone drain during menopause. The pain and irritation associated with this change can be addressed in a few different ways. Hormonal treatments similar to those applied for vaginal dryness are common, as is the use of graduated vaginal dilators.

Mona Lisa gynecology:

Vaginal atrophy is effectively reversed after a course of treatment with the Mona Lisa Touch rejuvenation laser treatment. Because Mona Lisa gynecological treatment is non-hormonal, it is also an excellent strengthening treatment to people who have suffered from, or are prone to, certain estrogen-dependent cancers.

  • Lichen Sclerosus

Traditional gynecological treatment:

Strong steroid ointment, like clobetasol, is the most commonly prescribed for vulvar and vaginal lichen sclerosus. There is no medication currently available that cures this condition, so patients can only control symptoms.

Mona Lisa gynecology:

Mona Lisa Touch laser treatment can significantly speed the healing time of a lichen sclerosus outbreak. After laser treatment, the body triggers a healing response, which increases the growth of new skin in the areas affected by lichen sclerosus.

Is Treatment with Mona Lisa Gynecology or Plastic Surgery?

Mona Lisa Touch is a non-surgical laser treatment done in your gynecologist's office. Treatment involves the application of painless CO2 laser pulses to the vaginal wall. These pulses create small wounds in the skin of the vagina, which in turn encourages fresh blood flow, healing, and renewed collagen production. Treatment with the Mona Lisa Touch laser is approved by the FDA and, in some cases, is covered by insurance.
