Everyone knows that menopause can bring about highly visible symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. However, the gynecologic symptoms associated with menopause including vaginal itching, burning, painful intercourse, and dryness can profoundly impact women's daily lives and intimate relationships. We now offer the MonaLisa Touch to provide fast relief for the uncomfortable symptoms caused by genitourinary syndrome of menopause.
How Does the MonaLisa Touch Procedure Work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses a C02 fractional laser to relieve some of the most common symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause. The MonaLisa Touch uses technology similar to that of aesthetic lasers, but is designed to stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal walls. As the existing cells are revitalized, blood flow and lubrication are improved to restore natural gynecologic functions. If vaginal dryness, itching, painful sexual intercourse or urination are affecting your life, the MonaLisa Touch can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause and vaginal atrophy without causing pain or inconvenient side effects.
What to Expect During MonaLisa Touch Treatments
The MonaLisa Touch procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Three or four appointments spaced about one month apart are recommended to achieve the best results, but many patients will begin to notice improvement immediately following the first session. MonaLisa Touch treatments are not painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied to reduce any discomfort experienced during the procedure. Patients should avoid sexual activity for a few days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routines without experiencing any downtime.

The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative laser designed to treat vaginal atrophy and symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching and burning that are caused by hormonal changes. The MonaLisa Touch uses minimally invasive laser technology to naturally rehydrate the vaginal walls and restore its natural function. The MonaLisa Touch safely stimulates new collagen production to help reverse vaginal atrophy and alleviate discomfort caused by hormonal changes.
Hormonal changes are a natural part of life. When estrogen deficiencies or vaginal atrophy occur because of menopause, breastfeeding, hysterectomies, or cancer treatments, many women experience uncomfortable side effects.
The minimally invasive MonaLisa Touch procedure can alleviate symptoms like:
Pain during intercourse
If you are a woman with vaginal atrophy or laxity caused by hormonal changes, and are experiencing symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching or pain, especially during intercourse, the MonaLisa Touch can help. The MonaLisa Touch procedure is an ideal treatment for women who don't want to undergo risky hormone replacement therapy or major surgery, but want relief from their symptoms. The MonaLisa Touch procedure is minimally invasive and can greatly enhance your quality of life and sexual wellbeing without dangerous side effects. Remember, no one can advise you better about MonaLisa Touch and your treatment options than your doctor.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special CO2 fractional laser, designed specifically for gynecologic applications. The procedure is carried out in a medical practice and usually does not require anesthesia. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Typically, three treatments are needed over the course of 12 weeks to deliver the best results.
No, the procedure does not usually require anesthetic. However, if a patient prefers, an anesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment to help reduce discomfort.
Every procedure carries some minimal risks. However, MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure performed under the supervision of a medical professional.
The MonaLisa Touch helps alleviate symptoms related to estrogen deficiencies and vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem among pre- and post-menopausal women. By stimulating collagen production in the vaginal walls, the treatment can restore the vagina's function and eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which often become particularly acute during intercourse. As a result, patients feel more comfortable and their intimate relationships are enhanced.
Since laser vaginal revitalization is minimally invasive, patients can return home to recover following the procedure. Patients should refrain from sexual activity for two or three days following treatment, but can otherwise resume their normal routines. Your doctor will give you specific recommendations to ensure a speedy recovery.
Most patients report a reduction in symptoms such as dryness, burning, itching and pain during intercourse, which substantially improves their quality of life. Though three sessions are recommended, patients may start to notice results after the first treatment.
