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.

Why choose MonaLisa Touch over other devices?
- Mill Creek Skin & Laser carefully evaluated all devices currently on the market and chose the MonaLisa Touch as the best laser for vaginal rejuvenation.
- The MonaLisa Touch treatment is a CO2 fractional vaginal laser treatment specifically designed and FDA approved for vaginal atrophy. The other devices on the market (i.e., ThermiVa) do not have approval for vaginal laser treatment and their probes are not FDA approved.
- MonaLisa Touch is the only one with a clinically proven track record for safety, efficacy, and patient satisfaction and the most studied in medical literature.
- MonaLisa Touch treatment offers significant advantages over current treatment involving medications.
- MonaLisa Touch creates longer-lasting relief (1-2 years) than current treatments with other modalities.
Other devices currently being marketed for non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation:
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.
