MonaLisa Touch Q & A

Family Health Care Aesthetics

MonaLisa Touch is a simple, safe, clinically proven laser treatment for the painful symptoms associated with menopause. This in-office procedure takes about five minutes and usually includes two additional follow-up treatments, each about six weeks apart. With minimal side effects and no downtime, you can get right back to your daily activities after treatment.

Many women report symptom relief after the first treatment with increased improvement after each subsequent treatment. Your provider at Family Health Care Aesthetics may recommend an annual follow-up after your initial three treatments.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

During treatment, your provider inserts a vaginal probe into your vagina and delivers a gentle, virtually painless laser energy to the vaginal walls. This CO2 laser energy promotes the production of collagen, resulting in new, stronger vaginal walls and tissue.

The vaginal walls and tissue become more nourished and hydrated, and the inner lining of your vagina becomes thicker, more toned, and elastic. This helps alleviate symptoms of dryness and looseness in the vaginal canal.

MonaLisa Touch also helps your body reestablish the correct vaginal pH, which helps maintain the natural protective barrier that reduces the risk of infection.  

Who needs MonaLisa Touch?

About 50% of post-menopausal women suffer from painful symptoms, including:

  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Discomfort during intimacy

Over 90% of women also experience vaginal laxity, making intercourse less satisfying.

Traditionally, the course of treatment for these uncomfortable symptoms is hormone replacement therapy. However, many women can’t take hormone replacements due to a family history of breast cancer or other medical conditions that make estrogen replacement dangerous. Also, some women don’t get the desired results with hormone replacement therapy or find the side effects to be difficult (such as bloating, weight gain, and mood swings).

For these women or anyone seeking a non-hormonal treatment, MonaLisa Touch provides symptom relief without side effects or the need for medication. Women who have changes in vaginal health due to hysterectomy and breast cancer treatments might also consider treatment with MonaLisa Touch.
