MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa is a revolutionary laser treatment for vaginal atrophy that often occurs with menopause or other significant hormonal changes in women. It’s noninvasive, pain-free, and effective. Women’s vaginal health can benefit from the unique, innovative technology available only through MonaLisa Touch.

What types of issues can MonaLisa Touch address?

With menopause, your estrogen production decreases, leading to thinning of the tissue in the vaginal region. MonaLisa Touch can revitalize this tissue, addressing issues such as:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Vaginal itching
  • Mild urinary incontinence

Dr. Scott Brown and Dr. Elise Brown have experience in providing patients with successful MonaLisa Touch treatments. They can evaluate your condition and complaints to help determine if the laser therapy is right for you.

What should I expect during MonaLisa Touch treatment?

MonaLisa Touch treatments are performed right in the office and require no anesthesia, sedation, or numbing creams. One of the doctors inserts a sterile vaginal probe into your vagina to deliver the gentle heat energy to the inside and outside of the vaginal area.

The energy stimulates the production of collagen, a natural protein that adds strength and suppleness to tissue.

Most patients tolerate the treatment quite well. You may feel slight heat and tingling during the session.

How many sessions will I need?

Most women benefit from a series of treatments, each lasting only five minutes. The doctors usually recommend three sessions spaced about six weeks apart for optimal results.

When will I experience results from MonaLisa Touch?

You notice changes after the very first session. These results are even more evident after sessions two and three.

What downtime is required after a MonaLisa Touch session?

You can go right back to work or other daily activities after a MonaLisa Touch treatment. The doctors ask you to refrain from sexual intercourse or from putting anything in your vagina -- such as a tampon -- for two to three days following.
