MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a noninvasive CO2 laser treatment that Dr. Polavaram performs on-site at Cary Laser Aesthetics. This gynecologic treatment helps with the problems common during menopause. MonaLisa Touch treatment can stop your suffering and help you enjoy your intimate life again.

What kind of symptoms can MonaLisa Touch treat?

MonaLisa Touch can help with a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal burning
  • Vaginal atrophy

MonaLisa Touch can help with vaginal laxity, if the laxity is caused by a reduction in mucosal tone.

These symptoms can make your intimate life, and even your general daily life, very difficult. Although some women assume that these symptoms are just a fact of life with menopause, that just isn’t the case anymore. MonaLisa Touch can relive these symptoms easily and naturally.

How many MonaLisa Touch treatments do I need?

Most patients achieve optimal symptom relief after three treatments. You’ll have treatments every four weeks over a three-month period. Many patients get symptom relief after just one treatment, with increasing benefits over the next two treatments.

How long do MonaLisa Touch treatments last?

Once you’ve finished your initial course of three treatments, you’ll have up to a year of symptom relief. Dr. Polavaram typically recommends yearly maintenance treatments, so you can maintain your results long-term.

Is there any downtime after MonaLisa Touch?

There’s no downtime after MonaLisa Touch treatment, and your recovery is typically quite easy. Dr. Polavaram gives you specific guidelines after your treatment, which usually include refraining from sex, hot baths, and strenuous exercise for a couple of days.

Can I use other menopause treatments at the same time?

MonaLisa Touch treatment doesn’t interfere with other treatments, so you can continue other menopause treatments like hormones if you need them. Although MonaLisa Touch treatment is highly effective for gynecologic symptoms of menopause, it doesn’t treat symptoms like mood swings, brain fog, or sleep problems.

Dr. Polavaram can help you determine the right approach to menopause treatment by evaluating your needs and symptoms in detail.
