Most women experience a variety of physical and urological changes as a natural part of the aging process – including overactive bladder, stress urinary incontinence, and gynecologic health concerns (such as vaginal dryness, vaginal irritation and/or painful intercourse). The good news is women don’t have to live with these conditions anymore. Today’s minimally invasive, outpatient procedures can offer reliable solutions to these common health issues.
UCA Lawrenceville has added a leading edge treatment option, the MonaLisaTouch laser therapy, which can dramatically improve the gynecological health of women.
“It offers a quick and painless remedy for a variety of medical conditions that prevent our patients from enjoying a healthy sex life,” says Dr. Gary Karlin, a partner at UCA Lawrenceville. “Traditional treatments are not an option for many women, so I’m grateful to be able to offer my patients this new alternative.”
The MonaLisa Touch, an in-office procedure that is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia, received FDA clearance in 2014. UCA Lawrenceville is among the first facilities in Central New Jersey to offer the gentle fractional CO2 laser. Patients undergo three treatments spaced six weeks apart, and each treatment time is less than five minutes. Procedures are performed at the UCA Lawrenceville offices and many women report symptom relief after the very first treatment, with even greater improvement after the third treatment.
“Patients in the studies experienced no side effects or adverse reactions and showed greater benefits with each treatment,” says Dr. Russel Freid, a partner at UCA Lawrenceville. “With these kinds of outcomes, the MonaLisa Touch is a game-changing procedure for our menopausal patients.”
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores gynecologic health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization “The procedure enhances the blood flow and the nutrition to the vaginal tissue so it is more elastic and healthier,” explains Dr. Karlin. “The laser revitalization stimulates collagen, similar to what is done with lasers on facial skin.”
