What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a non-surgical treatment that uses fractional CO2 laser energy to restore elasticity and tone to vaginal tissues. This simple, five-minute laser treatment has helped thousands of women find relief from vaginal discomfort since 2012.
What does MonaLisa Touch treat?
It’s normal for your body to change with age, and the tissues of your vagina are no exception. After menopause, as many as half of all women suffer from a condition called vaginal atrophy. Decreasing levels of the hormone estrogen affect the condition of your vagina, causing the tissues to become dry, thin, and easily irritated.
Women with vaginal atrophy may experience numerous unpleasant symptoms, such as:
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during sex
- Vaginal itching
- Vaginal burning
- Urinary incontinence
For many women, vaginal atrophy makes intimacy painful and causes embarrassing issues with urinary control. This negatively affects self-confidence and reduces your overall quality of life. The team at Lievano Perez Obstetrics and Gynecology of Miami helps women reclaim their femininity with simple and convenient MonaLisa Touch treatments.
Who is a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch?
If you’re among the millions of women struggling with vaginal atrophy, MonaLisa Touch may be right for you. Vaginal atrophy most often affects women after menopause, when estrogen levels drop.
However, this condition can result from other life events that trigger hormonal changes, such as:
- After childbirth
- After breast cancer treatment
- After having ovaries removed
Lower estrogen levels decrease the normal fluids in your vagina and make the tissues become thinner and less stretchy. If you think you may have vaginal atrophy, the team at Lievano Perez Obstetrics and Gynecology of Miami can determine whether MonaLisa Touch is right for you.

Your provider gently inserts the MonaLisa Touch handpiece into your vagina. Treatment is painless, but you may feel a vibrating sensation as the device delivers laser energy into your vaginal tissues.
