The MonaLisa Touch uses CO2 laser energy to promote vaginal wall health by stimulating collagen. This is especially beneficial for women who have:
- gone through menopause-50% of 64 million post-menopausal women have adverse changes to their gynecologic health
- had a hysterectomy
- had breast cancer-affecting more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors
The image below shows a clear difference in the vaginal mucosa before (left) and after (right) following treatment with the MonaLisa Touch. Image B was taken two months after a session with the MonaLisa Touch. The increased epithelium and larger diameter of epithelial cells rich in glycogen restore metabolic balance and dynamics of the epithelium.
Italian company DEKA designed and produces this innovative laser. At the Raby Institute, Integrative Gynecologist Katherine A. Thurer, MD, performs the minimally invasive procedure in the office-with no anesthesia necessary. Expect virtually no pain or side effects from the three, five-minute laser sessions. The small laser works by penetrating laser energy into the layers of the vaginal wall and stimulating collagen revival.
