Mona Lisa Touch Vaginal Laser Q & A

by Christine Collins, MD

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative new system that utilizes CO2 fractional laser technology to eliminate vaginal dryness, atrophy, laxity and urinary problems, that often accompany menopause and giving birth. The procedure is quick and performed in Dr. Collins’ office. The MonaLisa Touch works to rejuvenate vaginal function by stimulating the natural production of collagen along the vaginal walls.

Who can benefit from the procedure?

Menopausal women, breast cancer survivors and women who’ve undergone a hysterectomy, can all suffer from vaginal atrophy, dryness, and laxity associated with a decrease in estrogen. These symptoms don’t just cause discomfort; they can also hinder the quality of life. For these women, the MonaLisa Touch provides a safe, quick and painless alternative to estrogen therapy. It can effectively relieve:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness and itching

What exactly does the procedure entail?

The MonaLisa Touch treatment entails the insertion of a small probe that emits a fractional CO2 laser pulse into the vaginal canal. Created specifically for applications in gynecology, treatment with the MonaLisa Touch takes only a few minutes to increase blood flow and, in turn, regenerate the production of collagen. No anesthesia is required. The MonaLisa Touch was approved by the FDA in 2014 and is extremely safe. For the best results, most women undergo three treatment sessions, scheduled about six weeks apart. The procedure is not painful and is easily tolerated.

What is recovery like?

There is no pain and women are able to go home immediately following the procedure. Sexual activity should be avoided for about three days. At that time, women can also resume all of their regular daily activities. Though multiple treatments offer optimum benefit, women still experience significant improvement after their first session.
