You Are Not Alone

Since going through menopause, have you experienced a change in the health of your vagina? Over 40 percent of menopausal women experience symptoms such as itching, burning, dryness, and even pain during sexual intercourse.

The MonaLisa Touch is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive laser procedure used as a medical treatment to counter vaginal dryness and other symptoms often seen in post-menopausal women.

How it Works

The MonaLisa Touch procedure is a unique treatment that uses laser energy to revitalize vaginal tissue, resulting in increased collagen production which helps to restore tissue moisture levels and overall vaginal health.

  • In-office treatment
  • Performed without requiring anesthesia
  • Minimally-invasive
  • Quick, resulting in virtually no down time
  • Results are almost immediate (3 treatments are recommended)

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during treatment?

The MonaLisa Touch procedure will seem similar to your annual pelvic exam and may likely be even quicker. A qualified healthcare provider will use a specially-designed laser to deliver laser energy “pulses” that reinvigorate the cells of the vagina walls. The total procedure time is less than 5 minutes.

Does it hurt?

The laser energy itself is virtually painless during the procedure. Some patients do report mild discomfort with the laser tip insertion during the first procedure if there is gynecologic dryness, but there is no anesthesia needed.

How quick can I expect to see results?

Many patients have reported almost immediate relief after the initial procedure. Most, if not virtually all patients have experienced relief after the second treatment.

How long does treatment last?

The MonaLisa Touch is intended to provide lasting results with proper treatment. Medical professionals recommend a once-a-year single treatment to maintain symptom relief – your doctor will work with you to determine if follow up treatments are needed.
