What is MonaLisa Touch®?

MonaLisa Touch treatment uses fractional CO2 laser energy to soft tissue. As you age and as your estrogen levels go down after menopause, you produce less collagen and this may also cause vaginal atrophy. That means your vaginal tissue becomes dry, and thinner than it was when you were younger. It may also become inflamed, causing burning, itching, discomfort, and even bleeding.

Because of vaginal atrophy, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Urinary incontinence such as leaking urine when you sneeze, laugh, or cough
  • Lichen sclerosis (a common post-menopausal skin condition)
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Painful penetration and intercourse
  • Chronic vaginal dryness, burning, or discomfort

MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treatments can help improve discomfort and even reverse conditions related to vaginal atrophy.

For younger women, it can help tighten up stretched vaginal tissue (also known as vaginal laxity) that can result after childbirth.

The negative effects of aging on sexual health do not need to impact your life, if you think that the Mona Lisa Touch could be beneficial for you, please contact us and book a consultation with OB/GYN Dr. Sue Kafali today.

  • Vaginal burning and itching
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Burning or pain during urination
  • Lichen Sclerosis

The treatment is reported by the manufacturer to be nearly painless and takes about five minutes. Some women may require between 1-3 sessions for maximum benefit. Your doctor may recommend and a maintenance session every 12-18 months to maintain your results.
