MonaLisa Touch ® Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a safe, non-surgical procedure or simple laser treatment for vaginal restoration that can help improve vaginal function. During treatments, the system delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal walls. 

This stimulates your body to launch a healing response. New tissue develops to thicken your vaginal walls, increase sensation, and improve natural lubrication. A typical course of treatment is three procedures spaced over 18 weeks. 

Many women report symptom relief after one treatment and even more significant improvement after subsequent sessions.

What conditions does MonaLisa Touch help treat?

MonaLisa Touch can provide relief and, in some cases, life-changing results for:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Vaginal itching
  • Vaginal burning
  • Urinary incontinence

The gynecological procedure also works to restore the tightness and functionality of the vagina. It’s an excellent option for improving vaginal dryness, a common issue that develops during menopause, after surgical removal of the ovaries, or as a result of specific chemotherapy treatments.

What happens during MonaLisa Touch treatments?

Once you’re resting comfortably in the treatment chair, your Southdale ObGyn physician inserts the treatment wand into your vagina. The wand was designed to align with a woman’s vaginal contouring.

The system delivers carefully controlled pulses of laser energy. Some patients report a sensation of warmth during treatment. The total procedure time is less than 5 minutes.

It’s important to give your body a chance to heal after treatment sessions. Be sure to avoid sex for at least two days after your procedure. A degree of discharge, burning during urination, spotting, and discomfort is normal, and over-the-counter pain medication is all you need for relief.

How soon can I expect results from MonaLisa Touch?

Many Southdale ObGyn patients report immediate improvements, but it takes time for the full results to develop. Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll begin to notice enhanced natural lubrication and vaginal sensation and improved urinary control.

MonaLisa Touch provides lasting results. A single annual maintenance treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief and can be done quickly and conveniently during your annual checkup or primary care visit at Southdale ObGyn.

If you’re experiencing vaginal itchiness, dryness, or pain during intercourse, MonaLisa Touch may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Schedule a visit by phone or online today to learn more.
