MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch laser therapy?

MonaLisa Touch is an FDA-cleared, state-of-the-art laser therapy to combat the unwanted vaginal changes that happen when estrogen levels drop either during menopause, after a hysterectomy, or after treatments for breast cancer.

These uncomfortable vaginal changes include:

  • Dryness
  • Inflammation
  • Itching
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Painful intercourse
  • Thinning of the vaginal walls
  • Urinary incontinence

MonaLisa Touch delivers safe, fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal tissue, stimulating a healing response and promoting collagen growth. Vaginal rejuvenation not only reduces symptoms and increases comfort, but it also helps you enjoy intimacy once again.

What does MonaLisa Touch treatment involve?

One of the wonderful things about MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation is how quick and painless it is. If Dr. Dunn determines you’re a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch laser therapy, this is what you can expect from the procedure.

Once you are relaxed and comfortable, Dr. Dunn gently inserts the MonaLisa probe and delivers gentle pulses of energy to the vaginal tissue. Each MonaLisa Touch treatment lasts about five minutes. From prep to finish, the entire appointment takes about 30 minutes.

Anesthesia is not required, and you can resume your regular activities immediately after your appointment. Dr. Dunn asks only that you refrain from sexual intercourse for at least a few days.

What kind of results can I expect from MonaLisa Touch?

You should notice a positive change within the first week of treatment. As collagen production increases, your results will continue to improve over the weeks and months following MonaLisa Touch laser therapy.

Most women report that MonaLisa Touch reduces vaginal dryness, itching, painful intercourse, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Dr. Dunn generally recommends up to three treatments, scheduled every 1½-2 months. After that, schedule a session once a year to maintain your great results.

MonaLisa Touch is an effective, less-invasive alternative to surgical procedures designed to treat menopausal symptoms. It’s highly effective because it addresses the underlying cause of vaginal atrophy, not just the symptoms. It’s great for women who want long-lasting results without medication or surgery.
