MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a laser that stimulates your vaginal cells and causes them to create more collagen, a vital protein necessary for the overall health of your vagina.

The laser makes microscopic medical burns that provoke the vaginal walls to thicken and produce more lubrication. The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is pain-free and takes less than five minutes to perform.

What issues does MonaLisa Touch treat?

MonaLisa Touch benefits women who are experiencing hormone-related menopausal or post-birth symptoms. Nurse Raisa and Nurse Mallory use MonaLisa Touch to help you with:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal itching
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections

How is MonaLisa Touch performed?

The MonaLisa Touch procedure utilizes CO2 laser technology. In the comfort of the Womens Clinic LA office, you’ll recline into the same position you’re in when you have your annual pelvic exam and Pap smear.

The specially-designed device is gently inserted into your vagina to deliver small pulses of laser energy that boost blood flow and pump up collagen production. Over the days and weeks that follow, collagen continues to ramp up, your vaginal walls thicken, and lubrication is enhanced.

Who can benefit from MonaLisa Touch?

If you suffer from pain during sex, itching, dryness or vaginal atrophy, MonaLisa Touch is for you. The procedure is minimally invasive and completely painless.

The actual treatment only takes a few minutes, so many women schedule MonaLisa Touch during their lunch hour. You can resume your normal activities immediately.

How many treatments are required?

After just one treatment, you’ll notice an improvement in any dryness, pain, and itching.

For best results, the nurse practitioners at Womens Clinic LA recommend three treatments over 18 weeks. After that, an annual touch-up is recommended to maintain optimal results. Nurse Raisa or Nurse Mallory will develop a treatment plan to determine the number of visits that will best address your unique symptoms.
