MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser specifically designed to rejuvenate the tissues that line the vaginal canal. This state-of-the-art technology is the safest and most effective way to treat vaginal atrophy and prevent its after effects, without resorting to surgery or prescription medications.

Is MonaLisa Touch Right For Me?

MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are designed to help women who are experiencing vaginal dryness and other symptoms brought on by hormone-related changes.

The procedure is equally effective for women who have gone through natural menopause as it is for women whose menopause was induced with a hysterectomy. It’s an especially good option for women who can’t benefit from hormone replacement therapy.

MonaLisa Touch also may be beneficial to women who experience long-term vaginal symptoms following childbirth. Our providers can tell you if MonaLisa Touch is right for you.

What Does the Treatment Involve?

During the procedure, our physicians use a vaginal probe to ease the laser into your vagina. There, it emits gentle pulses of painless laser energy into your vaginal wall, where it activates the production of new collagen and revitalizes the vaginal mucosa. In just a few quick treatments, MonaLisa Touch can:

  • Restore proper trophic balance to your tissues
  • Increase the functionality of your vagina
  • Reestablish pain-free intimacy

A single in-office MonaLisa Touch treatment takes less than five minutes, and the average woman needs just three treatments to see optimal results. Because each treatment is scheduled six weeks apart to give your body’s natural healing mechanisms enough time to rejuvenate the treated area, it takes 18 weeks to complete a typical course of treatment.

Many women report noticeable symptom relief after just one treatment, and more significant relief after each successive treatment.

What Can I Expect Following Treatment?

As a gentle, non-invasive procedure, MonaLisa Touch has virtually no side effects and allows you to resume your normal activities immediately. It is recommended, however, that you refrain from having sexual intercourse for two or three days to give your vaginal tissues time to begin the healing process.
