MonaLisa Touch FAQ's
The MonaLisa Touch is a treatment that involves a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissue. This revitalizes the cells in the vaginal mucosa (vaginal tissue) to make the cells procedure more collagen; an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health. This mini-invasive laser assisted treatment improves the state of the mucosa that lines the vaginal walls. Although the term “rejuvenation” may suggest it, this treatment is not aesthetic, because the beneficial effects of the treatment “rejuvenates” the vaginal tissue, restoring the functionality lost over time.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special CO₂ fractional laser, specifically designed for this type of application. The procedure is carried out in the office and usually does not require anesthesia. It does not involve incisions or sutures and the sessions last 15-20 minutes. If you have additional questions, give our Dallas office a call at (214) 238-5346.

The term “loose vagina” refers to the condition where the diameter of the vagina has increased. This is often caused by natural yet traumatic events such as giving birth or tissue relaxation due to the natural aging process. In these cases, it is essential to evaluate the cause and state of the vagina to exclude a prolapse or involvement of the muscles. The CO₂ fractional laser of the MonaLisa Touch allows treating those cases where the looseness of the vagina is caused by a loss of mucosal tone. For other causes, Dr. Brady provides surgical options including vaginal rejuvenation, or vaginoplasty. At your initial consultation, we can determine the cause of your symptoms and options we can take to treat you unique circumstances.
There is no exclusion criteria for MonaLisa Touch surgery, other than those related to serious local and/or systemic diseases.

The MonaLisa Touch restores the natural function of the vagina, which helps fight and reduce symptoms related to vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem that is common amongst pre and post-menopausal women. This treatment takes action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, and can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. The interaction with the laser is, in fact, the ideal method to stimulate the collagen contained in the vaginal walls to restore rehydration and functional tissue. Its beneficial action can contribute to improve or restore self-confidence and sexual pleasure for women.
After treatment, most of our patients report a reduction in vaginal dryness, burning sensation and pain during intercourse, substantially improving in their quality of life. These results are made possible due to the renewed stimulation of the mucosa which regenerates and “rejuvenates.” This process involves cells and tissues and requires a few weeks to be completed. Results of this treatment will be more noticeable one and a half months after your session.
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment at Women’s Wellness Institute, although the procedure calls for 3 treatments over a 12-week period. If you have additional questions about the MonaLisa Touch, call us today at (214) 238-5346.

Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30′s. Most men need to be tested around 45 years of age. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy.
Pellet Therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic. Moreover, many studies show optimal testosterone levels in men , over 800, have preventative effects for many disease states such as: cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis, and more.
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Roller coaster levels of hormones do not have the same long term benefits as steady state hormone in the bloodstream.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, hormone pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, to name a few. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, to name a few.

Hormone pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. Following strict federal guidelines, a compounding pharmacist combines the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the hormone pellets.
These pellets are no bigger than a grain of rice and are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin. The pellets most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. Our office is able to easily perform the hormone pellet implantation procedure for our patients.
Pellet therapy only has a few side effects unlike other forms of hormone therapy where patients may experience more. With pellet therapy, two percent of patients experience mild acne or facial hair while less than 1% experience thinning hair. However, each of these mild side effects can easily be treated.
The side effects of BioTE® Medical’s hormone pellet therapy are minimal when compared to the other hormone delivery methods. That’s because BHRT pellet therapy produces a consistent amount of hormones for 24 hours a day and up to 4 to 6 months.

It’s about a patient making an informed choice. Researched and developed since 1939 in the US and Europe, there is a myriad of data to support the ‘long term’ safety and efficacy of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bioidentical hormone Pellet Therapy is being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 8 decades, not only looking at safety and efficacy but the prevention of disease states such as breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, Type 2 diabetes and so much more.

Pellet Therapy is able to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels because it utilizes hormones from natural plant sources. Patients have found this bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. The implants are placed under the skin and consistently release small, physiologic hormones doses to provide optimal therapy.
BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is a more reliable and effective method in comparison to typical oral and transdermal methods since it provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day that works up to 4 to 6 months without any “roller coaster” effect unlike the other methods that produce erratic hormone levels with mood and energy fluctuations.
The hormones used in the pellet implants are completely natural making Pellet Therapy ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic alternative.
There are a number of ways that hormone pellet therapy differs from bioidentical creams. The major benefit of BHRT pellet therapy comes from the fact that it is injected subcutaneously, resting beneath the skin. This injection eliminates the “roller coaster” emotional effect that often accompanies BHRT creams.
There is less chance of hair growth with bioidentical hormones than with synthetic treatments. For additional information on BioTE, call our office today at (214) 238-5346.
While the procedure is mostly standardized, slight variances in how the shot is prepared and injected can alter the final cost. However, most women can expect to pay between $1,500–$2,000 for their individual O-Shot. We provide, included in the price, a specially formulated numbing cream to every patient to apply prior to arriving for the procedure to ensure little to no pain during the injection.
Upon scheduling, we will instruct you on complimentary numbing cream application that we will request you pick up from our office prior to your appointment.
O-Shot should not be used on patients who are pregnant, nursing, trying to get pregnant, have experienced hypersensitivity in the past, those who have severe allergies, and should not be used in the areas of active inflammation or infection (cyst, pimples, rash) or blood borne infection.
After your procedure, you may experience mild redness, swelling or numbness for up to a week. Real results can be expected at around 4 weeks (after all swelling is resolved). You can return to sexual activity the night after your procedure, and we recommend you do so since results can be noticed this soon after the treatment. However, full results are enjoyed after a 3 month period.
