MonaLisa Touch is a laser therapy system specifically created to enhance mucosa in the vagina. Once inserted, the medical laser delivers controlled energy to vaginal tissues to stimulate collagen production, which helps with vaginal rehydration and aids in restoring normal function.
MonaLisa Touch can help prevent and minimize symptoms of a variety of conditions including pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginal dryness and atrophy, atrophic vaginitis, and mild urinary incontinence caused by stress. It can also help reduce vaginal laxity which can happen from vaginal childbirth or as a natural part of aging.
MonaLisa Touch therapy is virtually painless and takes less than 5 minutes per session. While you may experience mild discomfort when the probe is first inserted, the treatment itself is painless, and the in-office procedure does not require anesthesia.
Because MonaLisa Touch is quick and painless, there’s not a lengthy recovery. Many patients report resuming their usual routine within 1 - 3 days, although you should refrain from intercourse for 1 week following the session. You may also benefit from temporarily avoiding lifting weights, intense physical exercise, and taking hot baths. Dr. Rosenblatt or Dr. DiSciullo will go over your specific post-procedure guidelines.
MonaLisa Touch stimulates a tissue regeneration process in the vaginal walls that goes on for numerous weeks. While results vary, most patients notice improvements after the first treatment. Standard procedure calls for a total of 3 treatment sessions over an 12-week period. (3 treatments will only take 12 weeks - first at week 0, second at week 6, and the third at week 12)
While MonaLisa Touch is considered gentle and safe, you may experience temporary side effects such as localized swelling or redness after your treatment. These symptoms are typically mild and diminish on their own.
