What Is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a non-invasive treatment for vaginal rejuvenation and can address a variety of gynecologic concerns, such as dryness, burning, urinary incontinence, and intimacy-related issues.

This laser-based device uses proprietary stacking technology that offers deeper penetration and strengthening of the vaginal mucosa.

How Does MonaLisa Touch Work?

MonaLisa Touch treats vaginal atrophy by delivering fractional CO2 laser energy to superficial and deep layers of vaginal tissue. In doing so, it creates microscopic injuries to the epithelium that triggers a wound-healing effect.

Ultimately, the in-office procedure is able to stimulate the growth of new collagen and increase blood flow to restore vaginal lubrication and elasticity.

Who’s A Good Candidate for This Treatment?

Any woman with gynecologic concerns may be considered as a candidate for MonaLisa Touch. Many patients undergo the treatment to alleviate symptoms related to menopause or childbirth.

How Many MonaLisa Touch Treatments Are Needed?

Each treatment can be performed in less than five minutes, without anesthesia. Most patients find the process quick and comfortable and are able to resume all normal activities immediately after.

Clinical protocol recommends a series of three treatments spaced six-to-eight weeks apart, and you will likely experience results after your first session.

MonaLisa Touch After-Care Instructions

There is zero-downtime after the procedure. Other than abstaining from sexual intercourse for two-to-three days post-treatment, patients are free to go about their day.

If you are experiencing gynecologic issues that are affecting your quality of life and relationship with your partner, please call our office today to schedule a consultation for MonaLisa Touch.
