What does MonaLisa Touch® Treat?

As women age and go through menopause, estrogen production declines. This can happen naturally or because of treatment for cancer or other surgical procedures.

The lack of estrogen can cause symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, urinary incontinence as well as painful intercourse, all of which can negatively impact your life. Also known as Vaginal Atrophy, the thinning, drying, and inflammation of vaginal walls experienced by many women is due to this reduction in estrogen. Symptoms can include:

  • Extreme vaginal dryness and laxity
  • Painful intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Loss of intimacy desire

MonaLisa Touch® FAQ

MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive laser therapy designed to address vaginal health concerns, such as vaginal dryness, laxity, pain during intercourse, and urinary incontinence, by stimulating collagen production and improving vaginal tissue health.

MonaLisa Touch utilizes fractional CO2 laser technology to deliver controlled energy pulses to the vaginal tissue. This stimulates collagen production, improves blood flow, and rejuvenates the vaginal mucosa, leading to enhanced vaginal health and function.

MonaLisa Touch may benefit women experiencing symptoms of vaginal atrophy, such as vaginal dryness, itching, burning, pain during intercourse, urinary incontinence, or vaginal laxity, particularly those going through menopause or experiencing hormonal changes. It's essential to undergo a consultation with Dr. Apostolis to determine candidacy.

MonaLisa Touch is generally well-tolerated, and most women report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Some may experience a mild heating sensation or slight pressure, but topical numbing cream can be applied to enhance comfort.

The number of MonaLisa Touch treatments needed varies depending on individual symptoms and treatment goals. Typically, a series of three treatments spaced about six weeks apart is recommended for optimal results, followed by periodic maintenance sessions as needed.

There is minimal to no downtime associated with MonaLisa Touch treatments. Most women can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, although it's advisable to avoid sexual activity and vigorous exercise for a few days.

Many women begin to experience improvements in vaginal health and symptoms within a few weeks after starting MonaLisa Touch treatments. However, full results may take several weeks to months to become noticeable, as collagen remodeling and tissue regeneration occur gradually.

Side effects of MonaLisa Touch are typically mild and temporary, including mild vaginal discomfort, spotting, or discharge. These side effects usually resolve on their own within a few days to a week after treatment.

MonaLisa Touch is considered safe when performed by a qualified healthcare provider who has received proper training in laser therapy techniques. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and contraindications, which should be discussed with your provider beforehand.

Yes, MonaLisa Touch can be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation treatments or therapies, such as hormone replacement therapy or pelvic floor exercises, to enhance overall vaginal health and function. It's essential to discuss treatment options with our healthcare providers to determine the most appropriate approach for your specific needs.
