What is a MonaLisa Touch Treatment and How Can it Help Me?


Who should get this treatment?

If you find yourself suffering from painful intercourse, sexual dysfunction, vaginal dryness, burning or urinary incontinence, this treatment could be for you. These are not symptoms that you should have to live with and you are not alone. There are options to help you. The MonaLisa Touch® is a treatment option that could improve your symptoms and provide long-lasting relief.

As we age, estrogen levels decline, potentially leading to vaginal changes and discomfort. It’s not uncommon for women to experience these changes during perimenopause, menopause and even after childbirth. Many women have tried hormone therapy and/or estrogen creams and have not found the results to be effective.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

This procedure is a simple laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation that gives effective relief and offers life-changing results for women. It has been clinically proven to provide effective results for vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity and mild urinary incontinence.

The MonaLisa Touch can also improve your sexual health. After just a few treatments, many women experience an improvement in symptoms including dryness, burning, itching, and laxity. Many women also notice a difference in their symptoms surrounding painful sex. It’s not uncommon for women to experience some level of symptom relief even after a single treatment.

What happens during the MonaLisa Touch procedure?

A gentle laser energy is delivered to the vaginal wall tissue and stimulates a healing response in the vaginal canal. Patients experience very little downtime or side effects and the procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. Anesthesia is not necessary. A small metal wand much like an ultrasound wand is inserted into the vagina (in the same place where a tampon would be inserted) and turned in a clockwise and counterclockwise motion targeting the vaginal tissue.

That’s a sensitive area… does MonaLisa Touch hurt? 
The laser treatment is painless, minimally invasive, and takes less than 5 minutes to perform. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser tip insertion during the first procedure if there is vaginal dryness or atrophy.

How does vaginal rejuvenation work?

The MonaLisa Touch works by delivering laser energy and gently acting on the tissues of the vagina. The laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance. This in turn can stimulate a healing response.

How long does it last?

A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks. Many women enjoy positive results in the first one to three treatments.
MonaLisa Touch provides lasting results. A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief. This can be done quickly and conveniently during your annual checkup.
