Testimonials

Because of 8 years of BCG Chemo my insides were fried and extremely painful. I was having pain levels of a 6 to 7. It even hurt to walk. After the 3rd Mona Lisa treatment I could notice a definite decrease in my pain levels.

Having to battle bladder cancer and go through so many chemo treatments in the bladder has been very hard. I lived with a constant 1 to 2 pain level. Six months ago after a BCG Chemo treatment my pain levels were extremely painful. I thought I had a UTI, but after seeing a doctor he said that I did not. Then I saw my gynecologist and after he checked me he said that there was really nothing he could do that would help with the pain because my insides were raw from all the Chemo. After the 2nd Mona Lisa I was swollen and red in the vaginal area, and it took a couple of weeks to clear up. After the 3rd Mona Lisa treatment I could really feel a difference in my pain levels. Yes, I would recommend this.

After the third treatment things were back to the way they were before breast cancer

I’m a breast cancer survivor, and no one told me how challenging “survivorship” would be. Before Mona Lisa touch, intercourse was not just painful, it was IMPOSSIBLE. But after the second treatment we were finally able to be intimate – cautiously. After the third treatment things were back to the way they were before breast cancer. I was amazed – am amazed. Mona Lisa touch is so successful that it should become part of the standard treatment protocol for ALL breast cancer patients. I can’t endorse this procedure highly enough.

I began to see results after my first visit and by the third treatment, improvement was almost 100%

I had been seen by two other urologists who basicially treated me for UTI symptoms but told me I did not have UTIs. I went to my third urologist pretty much as a desperate measure. She immediately recommended the Mona Lisa Touch at my first visit. I agreed with a great deal of scepticism that such a simple treatment program could fix my situation. After the first treatment, I began to have some pain free days. By the third visit, I was feeling vastly better and two months later, I am convinced of the success of the Mona Lisa for my bladder pain and discomfort. I expect to need follow up treatments and will gladly schedule them as needed.

As a cancer survivor, there was no option until the MLT came along and I am so thankful it did

As a cancer survivor I was postmenopausal. I was 61 and intercourse was very painful. I decided to try MLT. After 3 treatment the symptoms and problems are remedied. After one year, I returned due to the need for some touch ups. It has been a wonderful treatment. It hasn’t been as drying. Everything felt like it was ripping. I had a hysterectomy before so no estrogen to help me. Any touch was so sensitive and painful and affected intimacy with my spouse.

I did have to allow time for the treatment to work and it did….I noticed subtle changes at first and after the third treatment my symptoms were relieved.

Before I found out about MLT I had suffered for a long time. My doctor had prescribed premarin which I used up to the time I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. There was no option until the MLT came along and I am so thankful it did.

I just completed my first maintenance treatment and will be glad to have relief again.

 I was amazed!

I was afraid that this procedure would be very painful and be uncomfortable for several days. Totally not true! I was amazed! Everyone in the office made you feel so comfortable and addressed your fears before even starting the procedure. Each step of the procedure was was addressed. It is not painful and it was over very quickly. I was so surprised and felt rather foolish about the fear that I experienced. No hesitation to have my follow up appointments I look forward to a procedure that has truly helped my situation.

I am so surprised that this procedure has helped my dryness and urinary incontinence. I can really tell the difference. I will plan each 6 months to a year to have my touch ups. It truly makes a difference in your life.

It was a huge relief that this was able to restore some of the intimacy we lost after cancer treatment

My oncologist suggested the Mona Lisa Treatment to address painful intercourse after strong chemotherapy to treat breast cancer. The Mona Lisa Touch procedure was quick and easy.. There was a slight burning sensation during the treatment, but little to no pain afterwards. I began to notice a positive difference about a week after the first treatment. By the there was significant improvement that has been steady for the last 9 months. I would definitely recommend this to a friend with similar issues. So many areas of life are more difficult after cancer, it waa a huge relief that this was able to restore some of the intimacy we lost after treatment.

I would (and do) recommend to others

I had the Mona Lisa Procedure while my problems were just beginning, at the age of 54. It has definitely helped with dryness and overall tone. I would (and do) recommend to others to consider having the procedure even at the beginning symptoms of menopause. It has greatly helped me!

This is a marriage and a health changer

Wow!!!! I had the procedure nearly two years ago and never expected the life-changing results. This is a marriage and a health changer. I hoped for and received the improved comfort during sexual intercourse, but I didn’t realize the great effect it would have on my bladder. It has nearly eliminated the very frequent bladder infections and cystitis that plagued me. This treatment has been such a blessing to both me and my husband. In fact, if more husbands knew of the amazing benefit of setting the clock back thirty years, they’d all be buying this treatment for their wives for Christmas, birthdays, ground hog days, etc. Thanks to Mona Lisa touch, the intimacy in my marriage has been restored and is frankly, better and more enjoyable than ever. You owe this to yourself.

After the first treatment, improvements were seen

Before having the procedure, sex was very painful. After having chemotherapy and hitting menopause at the same time, it felt like my vagina had shrunk. I would bleed after painful intercourse. I am so very happy that the procedure help relieve the issues I was having. I would recommend the procedure to anyone experiencing vaginal atrophy or who is having painful intercourse.

The staff was totally friendly and kind beyond words

A prolapsed urethra sent me to my doctor with pain and overactive bladder with incontinence. She referred me to a urologist, Dr. Meredith Lightfoot, who told me about the many benefits of Mona Lisa procedure. I had 3 treatments and noticed improvement before the last treatment was done. It’s been more than a year and a half since my last treatment and I’ve made my appointment for a maintenance treatment with total confidence.

The treatments are pain free and they do not take long

My 3 Mona Lisa treatments were completed Sept 2016 and I will soon go back for one yearly maintenance treatment. They improved the vaginal lining and gave me back some natural lubrication that I have not experienced in years. I am 68 years old and still sexually active with my husband of 47 years. Although I was able to get some natural lubrication back, I use a lubricant (water based Astroglide) for completely pain free and pleasurable foreplay and intercourse. The treatments are pain free and they do not take long. The reason that I am waiting to get my next maintenance treatment is because I had bladder surgery and I am waiting to get cleared by my doctor.

Thank goodness for the Mona Lisa touch

I love the Mona Lisa! I thought I had to live with incontinence while exercising, sneezing, or laughing too hard. I also thought I had to live with the frequent UTI’s and painful intercourse. Since I have had the Mona Lisa, all my post menopausal symptoms went away. I am so excited because I thought that I had to live with this as an older woman. Thank goodness for the Mona Lisa touch. I have rescheduled my yearly maintenance! I have told my friends to share the good news.

Years and years of worsening pain during intercourse have been eliminated. Life changing decision.

The things your Mother never told you. I knew there was a phase in a woman’s life called “menopause” and that it was the time that your menstrual periods stopped. That’s it. I didn’t know about the hot flashes, the sweating, the stomach I never had before, that I would never be able to sleep more than three consecutive hours again (silly me, I thought that ended after my baby started sleeping through the night!). I certainly had no idea that my nether region would dry up and wither away – to the point that the pain of an intimate relationship with my husband would not only become very infrequent, but that it would HURT so much that “never again” sounded like a good solution.

Along came Dr. Eric Jacoby who was recommended to me by a long time friend. At my first visit, Dr. Jacoby suggested the Mona Lisa Touch, but the price and the “what if it doesn’t work” thoughts kept me from making the decision to try the procedure. After another year, my husband was begging me to give it a try at any price. At my next annual visit, I brought up the procedure with Dr. Jacoby, and again he thought I would be an excellent candidate for the treatment. I made my appointment within a couple of days and away we went!

I am a total chicken liver, but the treatment was pain free. No more uncomfortable than a pap smear. it lasted I would guestimate less than 10 minutes. The staff at the clinic were so kind and encouraging. This was a big deal to me, so I wanted to make sure everything had healed (not necessary) and was ready to go. Oh my goodness! The very first time my husband and I were intimate was actually enjoyable and pain free! I was praying that I didn’t have to be one of those wives to have the EMTs come to my house only to tell me “Well, at least he went out happy.” Without the dreadful pain I’d been having for years and the total lack of desire, our sex life improved dramatically which makes both of us feel more young and invigorated! The Mona Lisa Touch was way better (and less expensive) than years of marriage counseling!!

I’ve already had another friend go to her OB/GYN and ask if she would be a candidate. It’s amazing when you talk to friends your age about “that” you find out that you are NOT alone, and there are lots of women out there that have been suffering for years in silence. No longer necessary!!! PLEASE talk to your doctor and discuss the issues that you may be having; don’t bear the pain for years without getting help.

Trust me and trust your Doctor….the Mona Lisa Touch procedure WORKS!!!!

The treatment was not at all painful or even uncomfortable

I found about about MonaLisa through my doctor. So I contacted their office and after talking them I decided to go in for the treatment. I am so glad that I did. It has really helped me. I highly recommend MonaLisa to anyone who is having any issues.

It was painless and it worked!

I was 55 years old and two years post-menopause when I began having symptoms that felt like a urinary tract infection. I tested negative for an infection and my urologist recommended I have the Mona Lisa Touch laser treatment. After going in for my first treatment (which was absolutely painless and took less than 5 minutes), my pain/discomfort was gone. I was able to resume sex and did not need lubricant (which I have needed since 40). After my second treatment, I noticed even more improvement. Sex feels like I’m a teenager again. I have recommended this treatment to two of my friends and they were thrilled with their results as well. I am writing about something so personal because most women don’t seem to know about this treatment and how life-changing it can be. My husband says it is the best money we’ve ever spent.:)

Gave Me My Life Back

This procedure changed and gave me my life back! Due to breast cancer at age 40 and again at age 50, I went into early menopause. As the years passed, I became dryer and dryer; began to experience more urinary tract infections , and intimacy became more difficult, losing sensation. I sought advice from my urologist who told me about the Mona Lisa procedure. I signed up and I am so thankful I did. My symptoms have all but disappeared, sensations are back to what I am accustomed to and life is GREAT!

DO THIS NOW!  Happy to answer any questions you may have. At 69 now, love feeling like my younger days!

The Results are So, So Worth It

Judy, the nurse administering the procedure was very comforting.  She told me exactly what to expect and that was reassuring.  If I had needed to stop for any reason and just rest, all I needed to do was just let her know.  I never needed the time out and actually, continued to chat with her.  The very last procedure I had, I felt two little pinches and one medium pinch.  It was nothing to complain about for sure!  The results are so, so worth it!!

I am so happy to have found Mona Lisa Touch!  Dr Lightfoot, a urologist I’ve been going to for years, said “just GO to Judy at Mona Lisa!”.  I love and trust Dr Lightfoot’s advise so I made an appointment and went.  I had just enough knowledge of the procedure to have hope it could “fix” my all too frequent symptoms. It always felt like I had a bladder infection.  Sometimes I did and mostly the test results were normal.

For me the results of the treatment have been so worth it!  Intercourse isn’t painful anymore.  I don’t feel “heavy” and achy/crampy in pelvic area.  It really has made a difference in my total well being.  I’m not having to manage discomfort and pain anymore.  The procedure has helped me feel like myself again.

I highly recommend Judy and Mona Lisa Touch .  She is such a compassionate person  and is very knowledgeable about the  treatment.

My Life has Changed

I felt at ease by the friendly staff. All of my questions were answered. The nursing staff helped me feel comfortable to ask embarrassing questions. Each procedure was explained in detail. The staff even explained what to expect between procedures.

I am so thankful to have had the Mona Lisa Touch Procedure. For 8 years I have had painful intimacy due to thyroid cancer treatment. After my breast cancer treatment, my surgeon told me about this procedure. MY LIFE Has CHANGED! Due to breast cancer medication and treatment, the dryness, burning, itching and painful intimacy were even worse. Thanks to Mona Lisa Touch, all of my problems are GONE. I can even enjoy intimacy without lubrication.

Mona Lisa did the Trick

My doctor had diagnosed me with frequent urinary tract infections and actually I always felt like I had one. Mona Lisa did the trick. No more infections and I felt normal, no more daily, itching, dryness and burning. It was so easy and has made me feel so much better everyday.

I Plan on Coming Back

The procedure was not painful and after I experienced much less urinary incontinence. I went from using large pads and incontinence panties to small mini pads.

I plan on coming back for my maintenance treatment soon!

I Would Recommend it to Any Woman

I had repeated urinary infections for 1 1/2 years. It’s not certain if they just never cleared up or were new infections, but there were three different bacterial infections during that time. I was taken off estrogen because of cancer, have to take an estrogen suppressant, and it wreaked havoc on my genitalia: I had bleeding hemorrhoids, anal fizzures, incontinence, and deterioration of tissues in the area.

After the 3 Mona Lisa treatments, I am comfortable and not experiencing any of those problems. I truly recommend it to any woman who has the same symptoms.

Totally Comfortable and Fast

The procedure was totally comfortable and fast. I was in and out in under half an hour, sometimes much less. I spent more time looking for a place to park than the procedure. Any woman of “a certain age” would not be intimidated or bothered by the procedure. No pain, just some vibration.

For the first time in I can’t remember how many years, I feel that I lubricate. No artificial lubes, no insertable moisture, just me. It makes intimacy so much more enjoyable when you don’t have to worry that you will need another boost of some wet, sticky chemical.  I’m 67, so it’s never too late to fix that nagging problem.

Beginning to Show Progress

I have had three treatments so far, and I am beginning to show progress for the extreme pain I have with intercourse and severe dryness after menopause. It has been 11 years since surgery caused menopause and I have not been able to treat this problem effectively with oral estrogen. Since I have been struggling with this pain for a long time, I will probably need more than three treatments to get where I want to be. I will keep doing this until sex is pain free.

Confident my Decision was the Right One

I had researched the Mona Lisa procedure online prior to my appointment with Mona Lisa Partners. After an in-depth consultation with the Doctor and other staff members, I was very excited to try Mona Lisa therapy. It is now 5 months since my 3rd treatment and I am confident my decision was the right one. I have had marked improvement with vaginal dryness, more comfortable intimacy and most importantly to me, was improvement with urinary incontinence that I had experienced since a hysterectomy 20 years ago.

I have recommended and helped educate several friends about this therapy and never miss an opportunity to discuss it when asked about my experience.

I will not hesitate to obtain maintenance treatments, when I feel it necessary. There is no longer a reason to “live with” “post menopausal discomfort.”

Would Highly Recommend The Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa Procedure has opened up a whole new chapter of intimacy with my husband. Intercourse was so painful after menopause that part of our sexual relationship was almost nonexistent. After the initial procedure and two maintenance procedures, I am happy to say that our sex life has never been better! Would highly recommend The Mona Lisa!

Just What I Needed

The Mona Lisa procedure was just what I needed! It has definitely made a huge difference and I would HIGHLY recommend it. In the end, I could not get it reimbursed by my insurance, but I am still glad I went ahead with the procedure. It was worth every penny.

A Life Changer

It was wonderful–really, really a life changer. This may sound a little melodramatic but once you’ve had the procedure, you’ll know what I mean.

I was as dry as the Sahara Desert-but no more. Intercourse was a big pain, most times I bled but thought it was my lot in life to just manage the pain. I had no idea that there was a solution. I’ve even had a desire for sex. The last time I experienced an actual desire was so long ago, it took me a little while to recognize my own desire. That change has been great.

The Mona Lisa procedure has been healing in so many ways. It’s not possible to list all. I will say that any one of the changes made would be worth it though. Did I mention I don’t feel heavy “down there” anymore! I can walk all day and not need aspirin.

Thank you, Dr. Meredith Lightfoot, for really knowing your patients. The procrastinators, like me, need clear cut direction. I have a great amount of respect for your judgment.

Thank you, Judy Follo, APN, FNP-C, my Mona Lisa Touch Technician, for being so kind and willing to answer many questions from me about Lupus as it did and did not relate to the Mona Lisa procedure. You were genuinely interested in my overall health. You went above and beyond and made my life better.

Many Benefits of MonaLisa

The procedure sounded like it might be a little painful so I asked lots of questions not having heard about it before. The staff was totally friendly and kind beyond words. The technician was Judy. She explained everything in detail and was very gentle with the procedure. I only felt vibration during the procedure.
