“To find out that there was actually a laser that in 3 treatments could possibly provide me with what I hadn’t been getting in the last 10 years of trying. I was ecstatic. I think having the procedure helps me to feel like I can be in touch with just being a woman again. It can really affect your self-confidence, your self-esteem. And so I think that was a plus that I wasn’t really considering, that happened.”
“When I underwent the MonaLisa Touch procedure I was a little nervous and after the procedure, I came out almost bouncing off the wall, saying I cannot believe, there is no discomfort, such a short time commitment. I first began to see results from the MonaLisa Touch procedure approximately two weeks after the initial procedure.”

Do you ever talk about ‘it’?
Did you know that millions of women are dealing with “it”.
It’s time to talk about “it!”
Vaginal Health. Two out of four women suffer from vaginal issues and 80% of these women think these issues negatively impact their lives. With symptoms possibly of dryness, irritation, itching, burning, discharge, dyspareunia, and urinary incontinence, how could it not affect your life? Now, however, there is something that can be done to alleviate these problems. The MonaLisa Touch vaginal atrophy treatment is a safe, affective and simple vaginal rejuvenation procedure that patients are calling “life-changing.”
What is vaginal atrophy?
Vulvo-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA) is the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to a decrease in estrogen. Vaginal atrophy occurs most often after menopause, but can also develop during breast-feeding or at other times when the body’s estrogen production declines. A drop in estrogen levels can also happen during the years leading up to menopause (perimenopause), after surgical removal of both ovaries (surgical menopause), after pelvic radiation therapy for cancer, after chemotherapy for cancer and/or as a side effect of breast cancer hormonal treatment. For many women, vaginal atrophy can make intercourse painful; reducing the sex drive.
Vaginal Atrophy symptoms include:
• vaginal dryness
• vaginal burning
• discomfort or painful intercourse
• vaginal discharge
• genital itching
• burning with urination
• urgency with urination
• increased amounts of urinary tract infections
• urinary incontinence
• light bleeding after intercourse
• decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity and/or
• shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal.
Even with the passage of time, many women still retain their youthful energy and enthusiasm, but post-menopausal changes can affect a woman's quality of life in unexpected ways. Now, there is a gentle laser therapy that can help millions of women who are silently suffering.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. The MonaLisa Touch was first available outside the US where thousands of patients have been treated worldwide.
How does it work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy that is delivered via a side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.
Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
How long does it take?
Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, which each take less than five minutes to perform.
When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over an18-week period.
How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.
What are my limitations after the procedure is done?
Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days.
For which patients is this treatment appropriate?
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female suffering from issues from a decline in estrogen, as well as those who are experiencing symptoms as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.
Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
Yes, the MonaLisa Touch therapy is particularly well suited for patients who cannot, or prefer not to receive estrogen therapy.
What clinical trials have been conducted on the MonaLisa Touch?
A multisite study was conducted by Dr. Mickey Karram, Director of Fellowship Program on Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH and Dr. Eric Sokol, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center.
The trial assessed the use of CO2 fractional laser therapy on 30 women with vaginal health issues due to natural or induced menopause. All of the patients in the trial were treated with the MonaLisa Touch laser therapy.
• Overwhelmingly positive and immediate results
• Highly statistically significant improvement in symptoms after first treatment
• Escalation of progress with each subsequent treatment
*Women in the study either experienced natural menopause or induced menopause as the result of hysterectomy or drug-induced suppression of ovarian function (chemotherapy, radiations, and anticancer drugs such as Tamoxifen).
A study was done by Dr. Stefano Salvatore*, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vita- Salute San Raffaele University to assess the feasibility of fractional C02 laser in the treatment of 50 women suffering changes in their gynecologic health.
• 42 patients (84%) showed significant improvement in their physical and mental quality of life scores over baseline and were satisfied with the treatment.
In addition to the multisite study, there are currently 8 published studies with 6 ongoing studies.
