MonaLisa Touch ® is the only procedure proven not only by clinical results but also by detailed ultrastructural and histological studies. Scientific publications of the results demonstrate the effective tissue regeneration achieved thanks to the unique combination of the wavelength of the CO2 laser, the structure of the D-Pulse and adequate emission power.
During menopause, the mucosa presents a particular condition with metabolically quiescent fibrocytes as opposed to fibroblasts, unable to actively produce collagen, hyaluronic acid and other molecules needed for an adequate glycoprotein ground matrix. This can result in dry mucosa because it is dehydrated and less well nourished meaning it is fragile and more prone to infections.
The purpose of treating vaginal atrophy is to promote and recover pre-menopausal metabolic activity by means of a new synthesis not only of collagen, but also of hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. This helps to regain hydrated mucosa that in turn restores a proper trophic supply to the tissues, thus reinstating all the functions typical of younger healthy tissue.
Treatment for vaginal laxity
Laxity of the vagina and introitus can occur from vaginal delivery or be part of the natural ageing process resulting in a potential impact on sexual function. The effective action of the laser can be used to treat vaginal relaxation due to a loss of tone of the vaginal mucosa. When inserted in the vagina, the laser acts directly on the mucosa of the walls, tightening, reshaping, toning and stimulating tissue and regenerating collagen.
Treatment for mild urinary incontinence
Recent studies show that MonaLisa Touch® can be effective in treating mild urinary incontinence postpartum or in the menopause. The stimulation of the vaginal tissue, re-establishes the proper functionality of the urogenital involved structures. This allows restoration of correct urinary continence, with a dramatic positive improvement in the quality of life, both physically and psychologically.
The MonaLisa Touch® procedure
The procedure is made up of three, three-minute laser sessions, each four to six weeks apart. It is a relatively painless procedure with no anaesthesia or painkillers required. The procedure is fast, simple and safe.
