About MonaLisa Touch
MonaLisa Touch is a painless and minimally invasive CO2 laser treatment for women experiencing changes in vaginal health after menopause. MonaLisa Touch laser therapy promotes the restoration of collagen and improves functionality of the treated area. The recommended treatment is three sessions spaced over twelve weeks, but some women report noticeable changes after only one treatment. This is an in-office procedure with no anesthesia or downtime required.
MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to restore overall vaginal health and improve functionality in a fast, pain free and nonsurgical manner with no anesthesia or downtime required.
Restore Natural Function
MonaLisa Touch rejuvenates the vaginal wall quickly and painlessly with a gentle laser therapy treatment. Rather than masking the changes in vaginal health experienced after menopause, it works to restore natural function to the treated area with long-lasting results and a quick recovery time.

How it Works
The MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure that uses C02 fractional laser technology to reverse vaginal atrophy and laxity, often caused by hormonal changes in pre- and post-menopausal women. The laser is inserted into the vagina and laser pulses stimulate new collagen production in the vaginal wall. MonaLisa Touch laser treatments naturally increase blood flow and lubrication to help improve the natural function of the vagina.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Laser vaginal revitalization is an outpatient procedure that lasts less than 10 minutes. Three sessions over a 12 week period are recommended to achieve the best results. MonaLisa Touch laser treatments are not painful. Patients should abstain from sexual activity for two days following the procedure, but can otherwise resume their normal routines.
Are You a Candidate?
Hormonal changes are a natural part of life. When women enter menopause, either naturally or because of cancer treatments or surgical procedures, estrogen production declines. The lack of estrogen can cause symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching, urinary incontinence and pain during intercourse which can profoundly impact your life. The MonaLisa Touch™ treatment can help relieve your symptoms by encouraging new collagen growth to restore vaginal health and functionality.
What Is Vaginal Atrophy?
Vaginal Atrophy is the thinning, drying, and inflammation of vaginal walls experienced by many women due to a reduction in estrogen. Also called genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), these symptoms are strictly due to menopausal changes. The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment works to promote collagen growth and treats these symptoms rather than masking them to restore vaginal health and functionality.
