Learn more about how MonaLisaTouch® works:

The MonaLisa Touch therapy uses a unique vaginal probe to deliver a gentle fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue. The laser energy targets the atrophic vaginal mucosa by stimulating a metabolic reaction and neocollagenesis. This results in increased vascularization, elastin and collagen which means increased moisture and lubrication in the vagina.

Immediate and Lasting Results:

  • Three 5 minute treatments at 6 week intervals
  • In-office procedure
  • Requires no anesthesia
  • Minimal side effects
  • No downtime
  • Symptom relief after just one treatment
  • Annual follow up treatment once a year*

*Your doctor will determine with you if follow-up treatments are required

Frequently Asked Questions About The MonaLisa Touch® Procedure

  • MonaLisa Touch allows for a functional restoration of the vagina (Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation), which helps fighting and attenuating symptoms related to vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem among pre and postmenopausal women. Thanks to its action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, this treatment can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. The interaction with laser is, in fact, the ideal method to stimulate the collagen contained in the vaginal walls for the rehydration and functional tissue restoration. Its beneficial action can contribute to improve self-confidence and sexual pleasure.

  • No, usually no anesthesia required. The sensation is a light vibration.

  • For any women who want to prevent or treat the vaginal symptoms due to estrogenic decrease (in menopause, after a childbirth or after a cancer treatment). Most common symptoms include: vaginal dryness, laxity, burning, pain during sexual intercourse and mild urinary incontinence. MonaLisa Touch is the ideal treatment for those who are looking for a less invasive procedure, compared to traditional surgical or pharmaceutical treatments. Remember, no one can advise you better about MonaLisa Touch and what is best for you to achieve best results than your doctor.

  • Most treated patients report a reduction in dryness, burning sensation, pain during intercourse, and urinary symptoms which contribute to a substantial improvement in the quality of life. These results are possible, thanks to the stimulation of the mucosa, which regenerates and rejuvenates.

  • Depending on the laser procedure, your doctor may recommend you refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Generally patients can return to normal activities afterwards. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
