MonaLisa Touch: A Non-Hormonal Treatment Option for Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy is a condition that women experience in the menopausal years. It arises due to a loss of estrogen in the vaginal tissue. When estrogen levels drop, the thickness of the vaginal tissue which is driven by collagen, thins, causing atrophy, pain and will often increase symptoms of urinary urgency and incontinence. When collagen is healthy, women have more elasticity in the vaginal tissue, increasing the thickness, suppleness and supporting decreased or no pain during sexual activity.

Collagen also plays an intricate roll in vaginal lubrication. Women with lower estrogen levels and therefore less collagen, experience increased vaginal dryness. When women have vaginal dryness, they have increased irritation, leading to adhesions in the vaginal canal and thus experiencing pain with intercourse.

MonaLisa Touch®

Laser Treatment to Address Vaginal Atrophy & Irritation as well as, Vaginal Pain & Vaginal Dryness

The MonaLisa Touch therapy was specifically designed to treat the painful symptoms of Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause, also known as Vulvovaginal Atrophy that affect postmenopausal women and those that undergo chemically induced menopause from the treatment of breast cancer or other cancers.

How does MonaLisaTouch® work?

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 (tissue) by stimulating a metabolic reaction and neocollagenesis (new collagen building). This results in increased vascularization (improved blood flow), elastin and collagen which translates to increased moisture, elasticity and lubrication in the vagina.

MonaLisa Touch Quick Reference Guide

  • MonaLisa Touch is a laser that delivers controlled energy to revitalize the cells in the vaginal tissue so that these cells make more collagen. The treatment can help with vaginal dryness, pain, itching, urinary incontinence, and some of the other painful symptoms of menopause. 

    MonaLisa Touch is particularly well-suited for women who cannot, or prefer not, to receive estrogen therapy because it is a non-hormonal treatment. This makes it a great option for women who have suffered from breast cancer to reclaim their intimate wellness. 

  • MonaLisa Touch is a laser that stimulates both the surface and deep layers of vaginal tissue to produce collagen and promote blood flow and restore vaginal lubrication and elasticity.

    Provide personal testimonial: “I had the treatment myself recently to help with some of the dryness I had been experience since going through menopause. It has really transformed my life, and I’ve been telling all my girlfriends that they need it, too!”

  •  The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration. 

    Some women report slight localized discomfort for a few days following the laser treatment, but say it is very tolerable. Sexual activity should be restricted for 2 to 3 days after treatment. No time off work is necessary, and most women almost immediately resume their normal routine.

  • Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, which take less than five minutes to perform each. Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over a 12-week period. 

  • Pricing for MonaLisa Touch can vary based on your needs, so our physician can best evaluate your total package cost during your consultation when they assess your needs.

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.
