MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is an FDA-approved vaginal rejuvenation laser system that helps pre- and postmenopausal women who are experiencing the painful and irritating symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy.

This in-office laser treatment delivers fractional CO2 energy to the vaginal wall to stimulate collagen growth, elastin production, and blood flow to the vaginal area. The treatment restores vaginal tissue laxity and thickness and increases natural lubrication.

What symptoms does MonaLisa Touch treat?

Vaginal atrophy is a common symptom of menopause, but anyone experiencing a reduction in estrogen production, such as those going through cancer treatment or forced menopause, may also have vaginal atrophy.

With the help of just three MonaLisa Touch laser treatments, you can restore your quality of life and your sexual health. Additionally, the laser is a great alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if you don’t want the risks of hormone use.

MonaLisa Touch can improve the uncomfortable symptoms of vaginal atrophy, including:

  • Itching
  • Dryness
  • Burning sensations
  • Painful intercourse
  • Incontinence

What can I expect during a MonaLisa Touch procedure?

Dr. Klope first conducts a pelvic exam to ensure that you’re in good physical health. During the MonaLisa Touch procedure, he inserts a small, thin wand into your vagina that transmits laser energy to your vaginal walls. The procedure is quick, safe, and virtually pain-free, and it only takes a few minutes.  

Most women need at least three treatments, spaced several weeks apart, for long-term relief. There is no downtime and no anesthesia or pain medication required.

Are there any side effects with MonaLisa Touch?

Some women report slight redness or swelling, but these minor side effects are temporary and typically disappear within a day or two. You should avoid intercourse for a few days after each treatment. Dr. Klope can provide additional guidance following the treatment.

When will I see the results of the MonaLisa Touch treatment?

Most women notice improvement after the first treatment but full results occur after a complete course of three treatments. Often, women return for touch-up treatments every year after their initial course of treatment to maximize the long-term benefits.
