MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is vaginal atrophy?

As your body produces less estrogen, your vaginal walls begin to thin and are subject to bouts of inflammation. Vaginal dryness is also a common complaint among women in or beyond menopause.

Vaginal atrophy also decreases your natural levels of vaginal lubrication. That can make sex uncomfortable and increase discomfort during normal daily activities. Additional symptoms of vaginal atrophy include:

  • Itching or burning sensations
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Urinary urgency
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Increased risk of urinary tract infection

It’s estimated that as many as half of menopausal women experience some degree of vaginal atrophy. Many fail to speak with their OB/GYN about these symptoms in the belief that these vaginal changes are just a part of growing older. In reality, there are safe and effective ways to treat vaginal atrophy and help you feel more like yourself.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is an innovative treatment primarily used for vaginal atrophy and mild stress incontinence. The platform also treats lichen sclerosus, a skin condition that affects the genitalia of some menopausal women.   

The platform creates carefully controlled fractional CO₂ laser energy for gynecologic applications. Treatments are safe, effective, and performed in-office by highly skilled practitioners.

The system was designed as a minimally invasive treatment option for women suffering from vaginal atrophy. The technology relies on photorejuvenation to promote new cellular turnover in the tissues of your vaginal walls.

During treatment, energy is directed into your vaginal walls through a small vaginal probe. That energy creates heat in deeper tissue layers, prompting your body’s natural healing response. As your body creates new cells to address the damage, your vaginal walls thicken and natural lubrication increases.

MonaLisa Touch differs from other treatment platforms due to proprietary stacking technology that enables the laser energy to penetrate more deeply into targeted tissue types. The team at Rodeo Drive Women’s Health has extensive experience with MonaLisa Touch and has helped hundreds of women achieve restored vaginal function without invasive surgical procedures.

What is the MonaLisa Touch experience like?

Treatments are brief, and take around 10 minutes from start to finish. You might feel a sensation of warmth and gentle vibration during sessions, but there is no need for anesthesia and no pain.

There’s also no need for recovery, and you can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. Be sure to give your body a few days to heal before engaging in vaginal intercourse.

Most women respond well to a series of three treatments spaced six weeks apart. A yearly maintenance visit ensures lasting results. You can schedule MonaLisa Touch as a stand-alone treatment, or at the same time as your well-woman exam or other services.
