MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Laser Q & A

What is the MonaLisa® Touch?

The MonaLisa Touch is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure using fractional CO2 lasers to transmit controlled energy to vaginal tissues. The laser energy revitalizes the surrounding cells, increases blood flow, and stimulates collagen, elastin, and moisture production.

This laser procedure uses cutting-edge technology, including a laser probe attached to a portable computer console. As one of the newest medical advancements, the MonaLisa Touch is a game-changer for gynaecologic health.

What conditions do you treat with MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a treatment for genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), a condition that results when estrogen decreases after menopause, hysterectomy, or breast cancer treatment. Many women choose this laser rejuvenation procedure to treat the following symptoms of GSM:

  • Vaginal atrophy, dryness, burning, and itching
  • Dyspareunia, or painful intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence

What happens during a MonaLisa Touch session?

During the procedure, you lie comfortably on an exam table with your feet in stirrups, just like you would during a pelvic exam. Next, Dr. Novak gently inserts the thin probe into your vaginal canal. As he gradually pulls the probe out, the lasers treat the full length of your vagina.

The entire procedure takes around five minutes, causing minimal disruption to your day.

You return to the clinic for two more sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, to complete a full treatment and schedule yearly maintenance session after that.

What are the advantages of laser vaginal rejuvenation?

MonaLisa Touch is an effective treatment that provides clinical improvement with lubrication and blood flow to the vagina. Many women report improved sexual satisfaction and comfort after just one session.

Each quick and painless session has minimal side effects. After the in-office procedure, there’s no downtime.

If you have a history of breast cancer, you’re still a potential candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation because it doesn’t involve hormones. This procedure is excellent when you can’t have or want to avoid estrogen therapy.

If you suffer from vaginal dryness or painful intercourse, contact Dr. Novak’s office to schedule a consultation for MonaLisa Touch.
