MonaLisa Touch Laser Therapy Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a life-changing technology that can help rekindle intimacy by restoring vaginal health. Leading up to and after menopause, vaginal discomfort such as dryness and itching, pain during sex, and urinary incontinence are common.

The leading cause of these symptoms is the loss of estrogen resulting in vaginal atrophy. MonaLisa Touch treats the inner and outer vagina using laser energy to restore vaginal tissues, and alleviate these problems.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

Unlike surgical procedures, MonaLisa Touch is minimally invasive and requires no incisions and no downtime. The laser creates a microscopic injury, and the body answers with new collagen and blood supply restoration, resulting in healthier vaginal tissues with renewed function and restored moisture.

MonaLisa Touch is a very gentle therapy requiring no anesthesia and you'll only feel a slight vibration during the treatment. This is usually well tolerated and not at all painful.

Do I need multiple MonaLisa Touch treatments?

The number of treatments is typically three, six weeks apart, but can vary depending on a number of factors such as your symptoms, their severity, and how well your body responds. After that, annual maintenance treatments are generally recommended. Dr. Beckerman will help determine your best possible treatment plan.

How will I feel after a MonaLisa Touch treatment?

After a MonaLisa Touch treatment, some women experience mild discomfort or itching for a few days. There are no restrictions post procedure other than abstaining from intercourse for four days.

MonaLisa Touch provides benefits very quickly. You should notice some improvements after just one session, and these benefits will gradually continue to improve over time.
