MonaLisa Touch

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser that helps revolutionize your experience with menopause. When the vaginal probe is inserted into your vagina, it stimulates a healing response in the tissue inside and around the area and thus improves many symptoms that are caused by declining estrogen levels.

What types of conditions can MonaLisa Touch address?

MonaLisa Touch improves your vaginal comfort and function by relieving a variety of symptoms, such as:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal burning and itching
  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal atrophy

MonaLisa Touch can also help resolve issues of mild urinary incontinence. These vaginal symptoms can affect a woman’s personal life, self-esteem, and overall comfort.

What are the benefits of MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch treatments are quick and are performed right in the office of Alpenglow Gynecology. The laser treatment requires no anesthesia, and since it doesn’t require an incision, there’s no risk of blood loss.

MonaLisa Touch doesn’t involve any hormones, either. While hormone treatments can be effective for some women, they’re not recommended for women going through menopause who have a history of breast cancer or blood clots.

How many MonaLisa Touch treatments will I need, and when will I see results?

Each treatment with MonaLisa Touch lasts less than 10 minutes. Most women benefit from three treatments spaced about six weeks apart.

You notice improvements in your uncomfortable vaginal symptoms after just one treatment, but get optimal results after all three treatments are completed.

What should I expect during recovery from MonaLisa Touch treatments?

MonaLisa Touch is not surgical, so it requires no healing time. You can go right back to your daily activities following a treatment session. A team member will ask that you refrain from vaginal sex or putting anything in your vagina for a few days following MonaLisa Touch to allow for the remodeling of tissue.

Does MonaLisa Touch hurt?

Treatment with MonaLisa Touch is not painful and is well-tolerated by most women. You may feel some warmth and tingling during the therapy.
