MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser therapy to treat the symptoms caused by vaginal atrophy such as vaginal dryness, irritation, burning, itching and painful intercourse. MonaLisa Touch delivers controlled laser energy to the vaginal tissue, which stimulates the production of restorative collagen, elastin and vascularization. Therapeutic use of the MonaLisa Touch avoids the need for surgery, hormone replacements or cumbersome vaginal creams. This valuable treatment option is particularly well suited for patients who are not suited for estrogen therapy, such as breast cancer survivors. 

Simple and Safe



Am I a suitable candidate?

The treatment is suitable for any woman with vaginal atrophy due to hormonal changes. If you are experiencing changes to your vaginal health after menopause, hysterectomy or breast cancer treatment, MonaLisa Touch can bring immediate and long-lasting relief. MonaLisa Touch is ideal for women seeking a less-invasive procedure than traditional surgery or pharmaceutical treatments.


What is vaginal atrophy?

Vaginal atrophy is the thinning, drying and inflammation of vaginal walls. Women experience this when estrogen levels decline. Symptoms experienced may include: vaginal dryness or itchiness; burning sensations; painful urination and painful intercourse. MonaLisa Touch treats these symptoms instead of masking them; therefore, your vaginal health and functionality is actually healed and restored.

What happens during treatment?

The procedure is similar to your annual exam. The physician will insert the laser and deliver laser energy "pulses" that stimulate the collagen in the vaginal walls to rehydrate and restore functional tissue. It increases blood flow and lubrication. The restoration of natural vaginal functionality can improve confidence and sexual well-being.

When can I expect results?  

Many patients report relief right away and even greater improvement after the second and third treatment. There is no need for you or your personal life to suffer any more. This revolutionary treatment is changing lives!

How is the recovery?

Other than the recommendation to refrain from sexual intercourse for two days following each treatment, women can resume their normal activities immediately.
