If you’ve been struggling with the uncomfortable side effects of menopause, you are not alone. Symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, and urinary incontinence are common in women after menopause. These symptoms can make women feel embarrassed and can have a negative impact on their intimate relationships and personal lives. The revolutionary MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive gentle laser energy procedure to improve gynecologic health and your quality of life.
The MonaLisa Touch delivers pulses of fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal walls to treat symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). Laser vaginal revitalization treatments improve the gynecologic health of post-menopausal women, breast cancer survivors, and women who have had a hysterectomy. MonaLisa Touch treatments use laser energy to rehydrate vaginal walls by stimulating a healing response and promoting the growth of collagen. If vaginal dryness, itching, painful urination, urinary incontinence, or painful sexual intercourse are interfering with your life, MonaLisa Touch laser treatments can alleviate the symptoms associated with menopause without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
This in-office procedure is designed to restore gynecologic health in less than five minutes and provides both immediate and long-lasting results. Some women report feeling noticeable relief from symptoms after only one treatment, but three sessions are typically recommended for best results. While laser vaginal revitalization treatments are not typically considered painful, an anesthetic cream can be applied to reduce discomfort if necessary. Other than refraining from sexual activity in the few days following treatment, patients can resume their regular activities immediately following treatment with no downtime.

The MonaLisa Touch treatment safely stimulates new collagen production to help reverse changes and alleviate discomfort caused by hormonal changes.
Is anesthesia required for laser vaginal revitalization?
No, there is no anesthesia required with MonaLisa Touch treatments. However, an anesthetic cream can be used to minimize discomfort if necessary.
Are there any risks involved?
While any procedure includes potential risks, MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed by a medical professional. The MonaLisa Touch has fewer risks than hormonal treatments.
When will I start seeing results in my vaginal health?
Some women report a relief in some of their symptoms after the first treatment, although we typically recommend three sessions spaced over 18 weeks for best results.
Are there any limitations after the procedure?
Since there is no downtime required, patients may return to their normal activities following treatment. However, we do recommend refraining from sexual activity in the 2-3 days following treatment.
