The MonaLisa Touch®


A minimally invasive, hormone-free atrophic vaginitis treatment to restore gynecological health after menopause, a hysterectomy, or breast cancer.

The MonaLisa Touch® is a new hormone-free treatment that prevents and resolves dryness in the vaginal tissue due to atrophic vaginitis, a condition that affects women who are menopausal, have had a hysterectomy, or are breast cancer survivors. Up until now, the standard treatment for this condition has been estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy, but the recently FDA approved MonaLisa Touch® treats the issues that cause the condition rather than just the symptoms of:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pelvic discomfort
  • Itching and burning
  • Bladder infections

The physical and emotional effects of this condition can be quite disruptive to a woman’s social and personal life, but this procedure we offer will change that. Minimally invasive and pain-free, the MonaLisa Touch® is a laser treatment that combats vaginal atrophy and dryness by in effect rejuvenating the vagina. It acts on the tissue of the vaginal mucosa stimulating the production of collagen, promoting the proliferation of the cells and restoration of vaginal wall strength and blood supply. By doing so, it allows for a woman to have pain-free intercourse, as vaginal walls are more hydrated and bladder symptoms are decreased.

How the MonaLisa® Touch Works

The treatment is painless, has no side effects, and only takes a few minutes. It is an in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia and virtually no pain. The MonaLisa Touch® is carried out in three 5 minute treatments at 6-week intervals, with an annual follow-up treatment once a year.
