MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a laser-based treatment that’s designed to help women get relief from the symptoms of vulvovaginal disorders that often develop over time.
With a series of extremely fast, completely noninvasive treatments, Dr. Stern kickstarts rejuvenation in the vagina. This process helps your body naturally tighten the vaginal tissue and produce more lubrication.
What kinds of vulvovaginal disorders can MonaLisa Touch treat?
Time isn’t kind to any part of your body, but that’s especially true of your vagina. As you age, your vaginal health changes. Many women experience a variety of symptoms with these changes, including:
- Increased vaginal dryness, burning, or itching
- Vaginal laxity
- Pain when urinating
- Pain during sex
- Urinary tract infections
These can be caused by a wide range of vulvovaginal disorders, including vulvovaginal atrophy, lichen sclerosus, vulvar atrophy, and more. But whatever the root cause of your unwanted vaginal changes may be, the MonaLisa Touch can treat it.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
This innovative procedure works by sending pulses of gentle laser energy into the tissue of your vagina. This laser energy stimulates blood flow in the targeted tissue.
It also encourages your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, two proteins your body uses to keep your tissue taut, elastic, and hydrated.
During your MonaLisa Touch treatment, Dr. Stern inserts the probe that delivers this laser energy into your vagina. The treatment is designed with your comfort in mind.
You might feel a gentle warming sensation as it goes to work, but you won’t experience any pain. The treatment takes just five minutes.
There is no downtime after your procedure, either. You can leave Stern Comprehensive Women’s Healthcare and continue on with your day, whether that’s heading back to work or out to lunch.
With a series of these treatments (usually three treatments spaced six weeks apart), Dr. Stern turns back the clock for your vaginal health.
The MonaLisa Touch helps to restore vaginal lubrication and tightness so you can go back to feeling like yourself again. And Dr. Stern offers annual touchup treatments to help you maintain your results.
