MonaLisa Touch™

It is estimated that 40% of 46 million women are likely suffering from these vaginal symptoms:

  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Burning and Itching Sensation
  • Painful Intercourse
  • Painful Urination

What is the MonaLisa Touch™ procedure?

MonaLisa Touch™ is a non-surgical, in-office procedure that does not requires anesthesia. This procedure is performed using a laser system, SmartXide, designed and manufactured by DEKA with exclusive technical features, making the treatment effective and safe. Through the use of a CO2 laser, controlled energy is delivered to the vaginal tissue. This energy is used to revitalize the cells in the vaginal mucosa (vaginal tissue) to help jump-start collagen production, an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health.

This innovative procedure is virtually painless and takes less than five minutes to perform. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted into the vaginal canal, but the treatment itself is not painful. Many patients reports that it feels like a gentle vibration. Patients will receive three separate treatments, spaced six weeks apart.

Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days after the procedure. During the healing period it may be recommended to avoid lifting weights or some activities, such as a hot bath. A member of our team will go over post-procedure protocols to help guarantee a speedy recovery.

What are the Benefits of MonaLisa Touch™?

MonaLisa Touch™ has been successfully treating thousands of women since 2008. To assess the clinical effectiveness of MonaLisa Touch™, a study was conducted by Drs. Mickey Karram and Eric Sokol. The study used a controlled group of 30 women with vaginal health issues all treated with MonaLisa Touch™. The results found that most patients reported a reduction in dryness, burning sensation, pain during intercourse, and urinary symptoms.

Women report that results are almost immediate, even after the first treatment, and improve over the subsequent months. For many women this procedure is “life-changing”.
