“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.
It is a commonly known fact that combining therapies in Aesthetics optimizes results. Such is the case as well, in Feminine Rejuvenation.
Different therapies have different targets and different mechanisms of action to reach a common goal. They can work synergistically to create better results than using only one mode of therapy.
HOW DOES COMBINATION THERAPY IMPROVE RESULTS?
Alternate Mechanisms of Action:
Ultra Femme 360™:
Radiofrequency energy→Deep Heat throughout the vaginal, vulvar, and urethral regions
PRP Injection/O-Shot ®:
Injection of autologous Growth Factors & Stem Cells into localized areas important to sexual and urethral function
In combination the two treatments work synergistically to achieve “the whole that is greater than the sum of its parts”.

HOW DOES THE ULTRA FEMME 360 COMPARE TO THE MONA LISA TOUCH CO2 LASER?
The Mona Lisa Touch CO2 laser is an excellent procedure for medical issues involving severe sexual dysfunction such as debilitating vaginal atrophy associated with aging, and/or chemotherapy, etc, and issues necessitating the supervision of an OB/GYN physician. The Mona Lisa Touch CO2 laser is a more aggressive therapy that requires creating trauma to the tissue to obtain the desired results. As such, there is more discomfort with treatment, and a higher risk of complications, such as infection, burns, and a longer healing time.
The CO2 laser uses columns of heat to create a controlled injury to the tissue to stimulate the production of healing elements, growth factors, etc., which in turn serve to rejuvenate the vaginal tissue. Thus, the procedure requires trauma to the tissue to get results.
Most women do not need that degree of therapy. Most women have mild to moderate sexual and/or urethral dysfunction and will achieve their desired results with a less traumatic and aggressive therapy such as the Ultra Femme 360™ Radiofrequency and/or the O-Shot ® in which there is no trauma to the tissue, and virtually no risk of infection or downtime.
Furthermore, the Ultra Femme 360™ results in direct deep tightening of the vaginal and urethral areas to target laxity, and Stress Urinary Incontinence, whereas the Mona Lisa Touch CO2 laser does not have that feature, and in fact, the studies on the Mona Lisa Touch did not address Stress Urinary Incontinence or laxity, and those are not listed as
indications for the Mona Lisa Touch therapy.
As mentioned, the mechanism of action of the Mona Lisa Touch CO2 laser is to create trauma to induce the production of the healing elements and growth factors by the tissue to achieve rejuvenation. The O-Shot ® draws these same healing elements and growth factors from the patient’s blood in a more concentrated form and delivers them to the localized areas that are the most important for sexual and urethral function without creating the necessary trauma as the Mona Lisa Touch does.
In summary, most women will be better served by the Ultra Femme 360™ and/or the O-Shot ® to better target more of the common issues with less pain, trauma, and downtime compared to the Mona Lisa Touch CO2 laser. Women with severe sexual and/or urethral dysfunction should be seen by an OB/GYN physician, and may benefit from the Mona Lisa Touch treatment and/or surgery.
