  • What is MonaLisa Touch?
    MonaLisa Touch is a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissue to revitalize the cells in the vaginal mucosa (vaginal tissue) so that these cells make more collagen, an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health.
  • How does it work?
    MonaLisa Touch implements CO2 laser energy that is delivered via side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.
  • Where can I have this done?
    The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure, performed at Women's Health Practice.
  • Does the procedure hurt?
    The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
  • How long does it take?
    Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, which each take less than five minutes to perform.
  • When will I see results?
    Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over a 12-week period.
  • How long do the results last?
    Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment. MonaLisa Touch was first available outside the US with up to an 18-month follow-up. More recent studies indicate some women will find their treatment results last 2-3 years. This is in contrast to other medical therapies that require daily or weekly therapy.
  • What are my limitations after the procedure is done?
    Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
  • Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
    Yes, MonaLisa Touch treatment is particularly well suited for patients who cannot or prefer not to receive estrogen therapy or oral Osphena therapy, which is approved for painful intercourse.
  • Does this procedure have benefits on urinary symptoms?
    Yes, recent medical reports indicate that women with a variety of vaginal and urinary symptoms will see improvement, including improvement of overactive bladder and urinary incontinence.
  • Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
    No processing medical codes exist for this procedure at this time.
