Monalisa Touch

How MonaLisa Touch Works

MonaLisa Touch® is a painless and minimally invasive laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation. By gently acting on tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.

Vaginal discomforts as dryness, burning, urinary incontinence can occur during pre-menopause or after child birth. The main cause is often atrophic vaginitis: a disease that can adversely affects your life and the relationship with your partner.

The MonaLisa touch is a medical treatment and therapy, and not for cosmetic purposes. A full evaluation of your medical history and physical exam by your gynecologist is required 3-6 months prior to undergoing the MonaLisa procedure at Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center.

Femilift – a fractional CO2 laser, but more similar to standard lasers and not specifically designed for treating the vagina.

IntimaLase – an Er:YAG laser that delivers photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal but does not treat atrophic vaginal tissue.

ThermiVa – a radiofrequency (RF) device which uses direct bulk heating for vaginal contouring. While ThermiVa claims that it increases lubrication and improves vaginal function, there are no valid, peer-reviewed studies that can be found to support these claims. ThermiVa is also not FDA approved for intra-vaginal use.

The MonaLisa Touch procedure uses a fractionated CO2 laser to stimulate the body’s own regenerative processes, creating more hydrated and healthy cells, and improving the circulation and nutrient supply to the vaginal mucosa.

This has a direct effect on the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and returned the internal vaginal environment to more normal levels.

During the procedure, a small probe delivers gentle laser energy to soft tissues. The treatment itself is totally painless, it just feels like a little bit of a vibration. The total procedure takes less than five minutes.

In as a little as 30 days after treatment, the regeneration of new tissue in the vaginal wall builds a naturally stronger structure and the protective mucosa recovers volume, hydration, and elasticity.

There is no anesthetic required as the procedure itself is relatively quick and most patients don’t have any pain before or after the procedure. Some patients may experience some slight discomfort, but this is usually more from their initial symptoms rather than the treatment itself.

The vaginal laser treatment is generally well tolerated and patients do extremely well following the MonaLisa Touch treatment and procedure; however, some patients may experience mild irritation and vaginal discharge after the procedure.

The MonaLisa Touch requires no downtime. The only restriction is to refrain from intercourse for 7 days and avoid any rigorous exercise for at least 3 to 4 days following vaginal atrophy treatment.

Many patients report a noticeable difference in symptom relief after just one treatment; however, an initial series of three procedure is recommended, spaced at six week intervals, to achieve optimal and longer-lasting relief. In order to maintain results, a yearly treatment is highly recommended.
