What is the MonaLisa Touch?

The MonaLisa Touch is a state-of-the-art vaginal treatment that uses fractional laser technology to stimulate collagen production in your vaginal tissue. It is a rapid, outpatient procedure that can help restore your vaginal health and your overall quality of life.

Why would I have MonaLisa Touch treatment?

As you age, your hormone levels decrease, which can contribute to vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy makes the tissues of your vagina become thin, dry, weak, and prone to injury.

Combined with the physical stress of pregnancy and childbirth, you can develop disruptive symptoms, including:

  • Painful sex
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal prolapse

The MonaLisa Touch stimulates collagen production and capillary growth in your vaginal tissue, which strengthens and restores your vagina and improves your pelvic floor strength.

The MonaLisa Touch is suitable for any woman who wants to address her gynecological health. Flagstaff Surgical Associates provides thorough exams and consultations to ensure that the treatment is the best method to treat your concerns.

What happens during a MonaLisa Touch treatment?

MonaLisa Touch treatments only take around five minutes. During your procedure, you recline on a treatment table with your feet in stirrups, much like you would during a pelvic exam. Your physician inserts the MonaLisa Touch device and turns on the laser.

You might feel a warming sensation as the laser heats your vaginal tissue to trigger collagen production. Most patients say the treatment isn’t uncomfortable. You shouldn’t need any anesthesia during your MonaLisa Touch procedure.

Many patients report a change in their vaginal tissue and sexual health after one treatment. Your physician recommends a treatment plan to address your specific needs, and you might need a series of treatments to achieve your optimal results.

What should I expect after a MonaLisa Touch treatment?

When your treatment is complete, you can return to your regular activities right away. However, you should avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours after treatment and penetrative sexual intercourse for two or three days.
