Restore your vaginal health simply and painlessly with an innovative and revolutionary new treatment option.

The MonaLisa Touch reinvigorates this tissue to strengthen and restore its health. She was the first in the area to implement this innovative technology for painful intercourse, genital symptoms, and lichen sclerosus and has performed more than a thousand treatments.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

This new treatment is helping many women reverse vaginal changes, return to sexual activity, and improve/cure urinary incontinence. Vaginal discomfort and urinary incontinence are common medical conditions that can occur with hormonal changes. Estrogen levels diminish secondary to menopause, treatment for breast cancer, or after removal of the ovaries. When this occurs, vaginal itching, dryness, burning, pain with intercourse, and urinary problems may develop.

The MonaLisa Touch is a laser device that was developed in Italy and approved by the FDA in 2014. The procedure offers a safe and minimally invasive solution to women that effectively rejuvenates vaginal tissue. It does this without the the worry of having to use estrogen hormone replacement or undergo surgery. In the journal Maturitas (Dec 2014), Italian researchers found that 92% of patients were satisfied/very satisfied with the treatment results.  85% of women who had not been sexually active due to vaginal atrophy became sexually active after 12 weeks.(Climacteric, S. Salvatore, 2014)

MonaLisa Touch

A quick and painless, FDA approved laser treatment reverses vaginal changes brought on by estrogen depletion.  Laser energy delivered directly internally to the vaginal tissue by a wand (like an ultrasound wand) increases collagen production. This results in thickened tissue, more elasticity and increased moisture and lubrication. The MonaLisa is a game changer for women. It restores vaginal health– better than estrogen– without using estrogen. The Italians have developed a laser than virtually turns the clock back and rejuvenates the vagina to a pre-menopausal state. Women who can’t take, prefer not to take, or did not get benefit from estrogen, now have another option. Quality of life has been restored to so many women who have been suffering in silence. Urinary incontinence is often improved with treatment. The external genitalia can also be treated to improve appearance, symptoms, and lichen sclerosus.

How Does the Mona Lisa Touch Procedure Work?

The MonaLisa Touch uses a CO2 fractional laser to reverse symptoms of vaginal atrophy and laxity. It is a minimally invasive, quick, and safe procedure. A wand is inserted into the vagina and the laser pulses stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal wall. Laser vaginal rejuvenation naturally increases blood flow and lubrication to help improve the natural function of the vagina. If you have troublesome vaginal symptoms or pain during sex, there is every reason to give MonaLisa a try.
