The so-called 'MonaLisa Touch' C02 laser has been causing quite a stir with women who have experienced the pain of vaginal dryness, vaginal tears, bleeding after sex or pain during sex. As reported by the Inquisitr, the MonaLisa Touch procedure is a lot simpler for patients to undergo than surgically invasive procedures that offer vaginal rejuvenation.
MonaLisa Touch is said to increase collagen by stimulating the walls of the vagina. It is also said to help with stress incontinence and other vaginal issues that women who are menopausal or in a post-hysterectomy or post-cancer stage might experience. With MonaLisa Touch purporting to help women produce collagen once again, it is being called a procedure that could resurface the vagina and refresh them to the days of their youth and glory.
The CO2 laser that is MonaLisa Touch is gathering reviews online as its popularity increases, and more women actually get the procedure that is said to heal the vagina without the side effects of surgery. Certain testimonials to be found online and on YouTube claim that the MonaLisa Touch procedure is helping folks even after their first treatments.
The cost of MonaLisa Touch isn't always cheap -- but can run from $2,000 and $3,000 as advertised by many doctors and medical spas performing the procedure. According to KATU, MonaLisa Touch can help improve the sex lives of those who might have been avoiding sex due to pain.
So what do real women have to say about their MonaLisa Touch procedures? According to the MonaLisa Touch reviews on Real Self, MonaLisa Touch currently enjoys a 93 percent "worth it" rating, with 55 ratings over the past 24 months posted on the website.
Some doctors are taking advantage of the newness of the technology to offer MonaLisa Touch at a reduced rate for those willing to try the procedure. As reported by The Vindicator, Dr. Samir Wahib brought MonaLisa Touch to the Youngstown, Ohio, area.
While women on Real Self report paying an average price of $1,950 for their MonaLisa Touch laser treatments, Dr. Wahib is offering the laser technology treatment for $500 to his patients. MonaLisa Touch is being called a quick outpatient, in-office procedure that takes only minutes to receive. It is touted as helping relieve dryness, burning, and urinary incontinence.
Meanwhile, one "worth it" thumbs up review by Mrs. Fitness -- who paid $1,800 in Fountain Valley, California for her MonaLisa Touch procedure explains that she got the procedure to fix her vaginal dryness after having a hysterectomy.
"I decided to get the "MonaLisa" procedure done primarily to combat vaginal dryness which was a result of getting a full hysterectomy at 37 years of age (I am now 54). Basically, I got tired of needing to use lubrication when sexually active. The treatment consists of 3 separate Gyn. visits spaced 6 weeks apart. It is not painful at all. The best way to describe it is to imagine a pain free drill bit looking laser that's inserted fully into your vagina, methodically scraping the cells until it exits so they rejuvenate and produce natural lubricant. It takes less than 5 minutes per visit. Patients are advised to avoid sexual activity and keep all objects out of the vagina for 2 days following each treatment. Once you have completed the three visits it's advisable to have one laser treatment each year to prevent the dryness from recurring. You can add it to your yearly Gyn visit. It's anticipated within the next few years health insurance will cover the MonaLisa laser procedure, but for now you'll need to pay out of pocket."
