MonaLisa or ThermiVA at Medispa
The Medispa offers ThermiVA, which utilizes radiofrequency to heat tissue over 30 minutes. The MonaLisa is a vaginal laser that is FDA approved and takes 5 minutes. No heating of tissue is involved. The MonaLisa has been used since 2007 in Italy, hence the name. If you had pelvic radiation, tissue blood flow is diminished and the tissue becomes drier and less compliant. I would suggest that you get an evaluation from a urologist/urogynecologist/gynecologist who offers one of these technologies to counsel you appropriately.

Can the MonaLisa Touch laser help in patients with rectal cancer
In general, rectal cancer is not a contraindication for vaginal laser treatment. The effects of radiation to the pelvis can be very devastating though, and can result in firm, dense, inelastic scar tissue. The MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser increases moisture and elasticity by causing the lamina propria, or middle spongy layer of the vagina to thicken. Your results may not be as good as a typical patient with vaginal atrophy and you may need a fourth or fifth treatment along with physical therapy and vaginal dilation, similar to our recommendations for patients with lichen sclerosis.
