MonaLisa Touch

What is MonaLisa Touch?

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 requires 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 practitioner at Susquehanna OB/GYN Nurse and Midwifery may recommend an annual follow-up after your initial three treatments.

Who needs MonaLisa Touch?

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

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Discomfort during intimacy
  • Urinary complications

Over 90% of women also experience vaginal laxity (looseness), 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 find the side effects to be challenging, 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.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

During treatment, your practitioner inserts a vaginal probe into your vagina that delivers 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 process helps alleviate symptoms of dryness and looseness in the vaginal canal. It also helps reduce the risk of infection by maintaining the correct vaginal pH.
