MonaLisa Touch Q&A

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

A fractional CO2 laser, MonaLisa Touch may restore vaginal comfort and help with mild urinary incontinence, associated with menopause. It consists of a vaginal probe that emits laser energy. 

When your Antheia Gynecology doctor applies the sterile probe in and around your vagina, it stimulates a healing response in vaginal tissue. The tissue becomes stronger and more resilient, relieving many of the symptoms associated with menopause.

What conditions can MonaLisa Touch address?

Vaginal symptoms associated with menopause affect a woman’s self-esteem, personal relations, and overall comfort. MonaLisa Touch impressively addresses a number of vaginal concerns associated with decreased estrogen levels. These include:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal burning and itching
  • Vaginal atrophy

The restored strength in your vaginal tissue may also help resolve issues of mild urinary incontinence.

What are the benefits of MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is noninvasive, and treatments are quick, lasting just 10 minutes. They take place in the office of Antheia Gynecology and require no anesthesia, incisions, or injections.

MonaLisa Touch is also an alternative to hormone treatment, which can be concerning to some women. The laser therapy is ideal for women who have a history of breast cancer or blood clots or for women who prefer not to undergo hormone replacement.

How many MonaLisa Touch treatments will I need, and when will I see results?

Antheia Gynecology recommends you undergo three treatments, spaced about six weeks apart. You notice improvements right away but achieve optimal results when you complete the whole series. The team also recommends a yearly maintenance session.

Do I need to schedule recovery after MonaLisa Touch treatments?

MonaLisa Touch requires no healing time. You can go back to most of your daily activities, including work, after a session. 

You should avoid sexual intercourse and the use of tampons for a few days following, however. Give your body a chance to successfully remodel your vaginal tissue.

Does MonaLisa Touch hurt?

Most women tolerate treatments with the MonaLisa Touch laser quite well. You sense warmth and tingling, but no pain, during a treatment session.

Women suffering from vaginal dryness and painful intercourse due to hormone changes benefit from MonaLisa Touch therapy. Call Antheia Gynecology or book online to learn more.
