How does MonaLisa Touch work?

A probe is placed inside the vagina and from this probe fractionated beams of light penetrate small areas of tissue. This creates small wounds in the epithelial layer of the vaginal mucosa triggering fibroblast activity which in turn stimulates new collagen production.

When women become menopausal the vaginal mucosa becomes atrophied with the decreased levels of estrogen. This means there are fewer number of blood vessels, the mucosa (or lining of the vagina) is significantly thinner and more prone to trauma, and the pH changes which effects the normal healthy flora. This is why there is pain and irritation. The MonaLisa Touch revitalizes the cells in the vaginal tissue to correct these menopausal symptoms. Vaginal atrophic cells shed off and new healthy tissue is now present.

MonaLisa Touch treatment is with a series of three procedures spaced 5-6 weeks apart. Each individual procedure takes about 5 minutes and is virtually painless. There are NO SIDE EFFECTS and NO DOWN TIME. Even after the 1st procedure a large number of patients experience wonderful results. The protocol does confirm a series of 3 treatments is the most beneficial therapy. At the annual follow-up appointment, many patients showed continued relief, however there were some who did require maintenance or touch up treatment.

Just like you, many post-menopausal women are experiencing changes that can affect a woman’s quality of life in unexpected ways, leading to many unpleasant symptoms.
MonaLisa Touch is a new treatment that uses laser energy to treat the symptoms you may be experiencing. MonaLisa Touch is a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissue so cells make more collagen, thus, promoting a return to vaginal health.
A multisite study was conducted by two leading Urogynecologists who are experts in the field of post-menopausal vaginal health; Dr. Mickey Karram, Director of Fellowship Program on Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH and Dr. Eric Sokol, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center. Additionally, recent results from a trial evaluating the laser treatment on postmenopausal women and breast cancer survivors who are experiencing vaginal health issues shows positive results and a high patient satisfaction rating.
The MonaLisa Touch is a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be done right here at Women’s Specialists of New Mexico.
The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically is done under 5 minutes.
Patients receive three 5 minute in-office treatments that are spaced six weeks apart.
Most MonaLisa Touch patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three 5 minute treatments that are generally spaced over an 18-week period.
After the third treatment, patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.
Patients can return to normal activities after the procedure, but should refrain from sexual activity for 2-3 days. Your doctor will determine a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female who has gone through menopause, as well as those who are experiencing a change in their vaginal health as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is a great option and particularly well suited for patients who cannot receive estrogen therapy.
