Mangrove Women’s Health doctors now offer and perform MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treatments. It’s our newest branch of service and we are excited for the ladies (and their partners!) who are reaping the benefits. But we are not the only provider in Chico to offer this service. There are a couple of other doctors in the area who provide similar vaginal rejuvenation services, and just yesterday I saw a local advertisement for another doctor in town who is advertising MonaLisa Touch treatment. You may be asking, “How do I choose the right doctor? Who’s the best choice?”
MonaLisa Touch can now be performed by any medical doctor who goes through proper training of how to use the laser and perform the treatment. However, we believe that choosing to receive this treatment from a gynecologist is the best choice. A cosmetic surgeon, for example, will not have experience to assist with other issues surrounding vaginal discomforts like painful intercourse, hormone therapy, or incontinence. Is a dermatologist really the best person to ask about increasing or decreasing your estrogen? And what happens if you continue to have painful intercourse after the treatment? Is a cosmetic surgeon going to be able to do a pelvic ultrasound, or will you just get referred to another doctor? What happens if there is an undiagnosed issue like endometriosis or fibroids, and you don’t experience full relief from the treatment alone?
Our staff is exceptionally skilled at diagnosing and resolving a variety of vaginal, urinary, and pelvic disorders. We have the experience needed to really make a difference and prevent you from visiting multiple doctors. However, I am realistic and understand different patients choose different doctors for different reasons. But in this case, we believe choosing a gynecologist to perform MonaLisa Touch is the best and safest choice for you.
