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.
