The bodies of women are a work of wonder. A flawless machine that endures monthly pains, prepares for pregnancy, and sees it through beyond labor without long-term consequences. However, menopause, age, and pelvic conditions throughout life can affect a woman's sexual health due to vaginal discomfort and chronic pain during intercourse due to a prevalent dryness, a product of the aforementioned pathologies. This can trigger conditions such as orgasmic dysfunction and related issues, making women stop having sex entirely.
These complications can be solved with a simple procedure that won’t take much time and doesn’t leave further difficulties. The MonaLisa Touch is a CO2 laser procedure that has been used for a long time to heal remnants of injuries in the face. In recent times it was incorporated in sexual health, as it was proven effective in healing vaginal mucosa, giving it new life, and our patients have described the results as life-changing.
This method may sound new to you in the sexual health area, so, to help you better understand how it works, here are some commonly asked questions about the MonaLisa Touch and what it involves.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch is a leading medical procedure that delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to soft tissue. By gently acting on tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the targeted area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.
To put it simply, it provides a non-invasive, hormone-free, medication-free solution to a range of pelvic health conditions, including vaginal dryness and atrophy, by rejuvenating the vaginal tissue.
How much is the MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is not a surgical procedure, and as such, the price can range from $800 to $4500, and the cost is defined during a consultation with Dr. Brady and her team of experts upon physical examination and its subsequent review. To ensure the best results, the patient's needs are reviewed on a case-to-case basis.
What are the side effects of the MonaLisa Touch?
It is important to note that most women tolerate the treatment without any issue. In the few cases where secondary effects were reported, the patients refer to temporary swelling, redness, very mild bleeding, discomfort, tenderness, itching, and burning. In all cases, these issues disappear after the first two days.
Does Insurance cover MonaLisa Touch?
Unfortunately, health insurance does not cover MonaLisa Touch. However, the Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas has arrangements with several lenders to facilitate financing for women and their health.
The programs offered to patients vary in interest rates and repayment plans. Credit history and company policies play a role in qualifying for them. Currently, we count among our allies CareCredit, United Medical Credit, Prosper Healthcare Lending, and Patientfi, all of which you can consult any time for further information. At first glance, the out of pocket cost may seem steep, but the extraordinary results are worth every penny.
