Mona Lisa Touch™ Laser

When estrogen levels decline after menopause, many changes occur. Millions of women experience symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, burning or painful intercourse as a consequence of these changes. Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited: messy estrogen creams or hormone replacement therapy, which isn’t for everyone. Mona Lisa Touch laser is a game changer.

MonaLisa Touch™ is an in-office procedure which uses a laser to deliver 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. The treatment improves the state of the mucosa that lines the vaginal walls through a series of mini-invasive laser-assisted procedures.

The MonaLisa Touch allows for functional restoration of the vagina, which helps fight and reduce symptoms related to vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem among pre and post-menopausal women. Thanks to its action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, this treatment can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. The interaction with the laser is, in fact, the ideal method to stimulate the collagen contained in the vaginal walls for the rehydration and functional tissue restoration. Its beneficial action can contribute to improve self-confidence and sexual pleasure.
