Vaginal dryness, itching, burning, pain with intimacy?
Fractional CO2 laser therapy rejuvenates the vaginal walls to restore functionality and revive hydration, tone and sensitivity.
Are you breastfeeding, going through menopause, or undergoing cancer treatment? If so, you may be suffering from vaginal dryness and discomfort from decreased estrogen levels. This can have a negative impact on your day-to-day activities, vaginal health, sexual wellness and quality of life. You may find yourself experiencing burning, irritation, painful intercourse and even an increased urgency/frequency to urinate and urinary tract infections. Find hope with our non-surgical MonaLisa Touch® laser treatment.
More than 50% of post-menopausal women and breast cancer survivors have atrophic vaginal changes.
The female hormone estrogen, which is produced by the ovaries, plays a vital role in keeping vaginal tissues lubricated and healthy. When levels of estrogen are low, vaginal tissue becomes atrophic — thin, dry and shrunken. During and after menopause and with breast cancer treatments, estrogen levels decline and the vagina changes. The walls become thin and narrow. Millions of women experience vaginal dryness, itching, burning or painful intercourse. Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited: messy estrogen creams or other lubricants.
There is a warm and welcoming vibe starting in the lobby. The staff is super nice and attentive. I’ve met both providers (Heather & Julie) who are incredibly relatable, knowledgeable, passionate about women’s health, and treat you with respect. After 1 treatment of the Mona Lisa, I’ve seen substantial decrease in/to no urinary stress incontinence. Major confidence boost! I am elated!!

Q & A
Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser handpiece insertion due to vaginal dryness.
It is important to report any history of sexually transmitted diseases (e.g. herpes) or current vaginal infections (e.g. candida/yeast) as these may require prior treatments. Specific to herpes, this procedure can cause a flare-up so if you have a prior history of such, you will need antiviral therapy prior to and after the procedure.
You may drive yourself to and from your treatment.
Avoid all intra-vaginal cream and lubricants 24 hours prior to the treatment. We recommend that you shower or bathe the morning of the treatment so that the area to be treated is clean.
You may return to normal activity as tolerated immediately after the procedure, but should refrain from sexual activity, douching, tampons, hot tubs and tub baths for 5 days.
The possible associated side effects following this procedure may include vaginal spotting, mild vaginal bleeding, burning upon urination and discomfort. As the area heals these symptoms will subside.
You may experience an increase in vaginal moisture and lubrication in the first 1-2 weeks after the first treatment.
For best results, an initial three treatment program should be administered six weeks apart and repeated annually.
