Mona Lisa Procedure – What is it?

The Mona Lisa Touch Procedure is a gentle laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation that only takes about five minutes! The only aftercare recommended is abstaining from intercourse for five days afterward. Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation is incredibly low risk with many health benefits. The vaginal rejuvenation accomplished by the Mona Lisa Touch procedure is clinically proven to give relief from conditions such as vaginal laxity and dryness, burning, itching, pain during sex, and urinary incontinence. This non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation can improve your sexual health and resolve unwanted symptoms in a few simple sessions, and many women notice improvement after just one. Vaginal pain and discomfort should not have to be part of the aging process, nor does it have to be! 

How and Why Was Mona Lisa created?

Through extensive research in Aesthetic medicine and Dermatology and implementing similar techniques, the Mona Lisa procedure was designed to offer non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation by stimulating cells and encouraging the natural regeneration process of those cells. It can take as little as one month after treatment for new, firmer tissue to regenerate in the vaginal walls, and this sensitive area is once again restored to its natural thickness, lubrication, and elasticity. The Mona Lisa Touch procedure restores the natural pH of the vagina as well and addresses vaginal atrophy, so those uncomfortable symptoms of irritation, pain, and dryness are no more! Not only does Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation help alleviate discomfort in your everyday life by non-surgical intervention, but by correcting the vagina structurally, you can avoid other surgical procedures such as vaginoplasty or labiaplasty. 

Who Should Get the Mona Lisa Touch Treatment?

With age and after menopause, estrogen levels begin to drop, and vaginal tissue can start to atrophy, meaning the tissue grows thin and dry. This drop in estrogen can also occur during chemotherapy or radiation therapy as well. This change may come with inflammation, which can cause discomfort, itching, burning, or sometimes even bleeding. 

Vaginal atrophy may cause you to experience the following:

  1. Vaginal discomfort or bleeding
  2. Frequent or chronic UTI’s 
  3. Painful intercourse and penetration 
  4. Urinary incontinence
  5. A postmenopausal skin condition called Lichen Sclerosus 

Vaginal rejuvenation therapy with the Mona Lisa Touch Procedure can reverse these unwanted and uncomfortable side effects caused by vaginal atrophy during or after menopause. The Mona Lisa procedure can also be an excellent option for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation after childbirth to tighten stretched vaginal tissue. If you find yourself experiencing any of the above symptoms and are looking for relief, talk to your physician to see if Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation is right for you!

What Can I Expect During My Mona Lisa Procedure?

The non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment is very quick and pain-free. The procedure will take place in the comfort of your doctor’s office and does not require any anesthesia. The Mona Lisa procedure is non-hormonal, making it a fantastic alternative to estrogen and lubricants. A local anesthetic is applied during the procedure, which is performed similarly to your usual gynecological exam. A small wand similar to an ultrasound is inserted into the vagina and then turned clockwise and counterclockwise. This motion will transmit gentle laser energy into the vaginal tissue. During the Mona Lisa Touch procedure, the gentle, painless laser energy stimulates the vagina to create new blood vessels. With the creation of these new blood vessels, your levels of elastin and collagen will elevate, leading to many health benefits and repairing of vaginal tissue. After about five minutes, the Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation is complete, and you can go about your day! 

What Will the Procedure Do to Help Me?

This vaginal rejuvenation will make your vaginal tissue healthier, firmer, and tighter. The therapy will restore natural lubrication, and blood can flow to the vaginal area more easily. You may feel some relief from your symptoms after your first treatment or following your first few treatments. On average, women will notice a difference in alleviating their symptoms within one to three visits. Additionally, if you experience a dermatological condition called lichen sclerosis, which causes thin, white patches in the genital area in postmenopausal women, Mona Lisa nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation can help you, too! 

How Long Does the Mona Lisa Procedure Last? 

The typical course of treatment for Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation is over the course of four months. Many women go for treatments three times every six weeks, and sometimes you will need a once yearly touch-up treatment to maintain continuous relief. Thankfully, because the Mona Lisa Touch procedure is so quick and easy, this touch-up can even be done during your annual visit. 

Are there Side Effects?

Side effects from the Mona Lisa procedure are extremely rare. Minor, temporary side effects may include vaginal tenderness, itching, burning, bleeding, or discharge. The benefits to the treatment are tremendous, and the only aftercare required is abstinence from intercourse or penetration for five days following the procedure.  

Is the Mona Lisa Touch Procedure Painful?

There is no pain or discomfort with Mona Lisa vaginal rejuvenation therapy. It is fast, low risk, and non-surgical. At most, patients may feel a gentle vibrating sensation during the procedure. 

Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Safe?

The Mona Lisa Touch procedure was approved for use by the FDA in December of 2014. Since then, the procedure has been widely and safely used to help women alleviate pain and discomfort, whether postpartum or around menopause.
