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, to stimulate the production of restorative collagen, elastin and vascularization. This is a hormone-free, chemical-free alternative to invasic surgery, hormone replacements or messy 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 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?  

We've had many patients report some relief immediately following the first treatment and even greater improvement after the second and third treatments.

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.
