MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a revolutionary medical laser treatment that encourages cellular rejuvenation of vaginal tissues. This painless procedure uses CO2 laser technology to stimulate collagen production, which hydrates and restores the tissues of your vagina.

In only three 5-minute treatment sessions spaced six weeks apart, you can experience the improved sexual pleasure and personal comfort of MonaLisa Touch.

What is vaginal atrophy?

Millions of women seek MonaLisa Touch as a treatment for vaginal atrophy. This condition causes painful, frustrating vaginal symptoms such as:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal burning or itching
  • Pain during sex
  • Decreased vaginal elasticity
  • Decreased vaginal muscle tone

MonaLisa Touch tones and revitalizes your vaginal tissues. Stronger, more youthful tissues in your pelvic area provide greater control over urine leakage (incontinence). This makes MonaLisa Touch an effective, nonsurgical treatment for urinary incontinence.

Who is a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch?

Vaginal atrophy is especially common among women experiencing hormone changes or fluctuations. Various life events may cause hormone changes that lead to vaginal atrophy, such as:

  • After childbirth
  • After menopause
  • The years leading up to menopause (perimenopause)
  • After receiving cancer treatment

MonaLisa Touch can help improve your quality of life by restoring your vagina to how it was before childbirth and menopause.

What should I expect from a MonaLisa Touch treatment?

First, Dr. Kandinov performs a comprehensive physical exam and reviews your medical history. He listens carefully as you discuss your specific concerns and desired outcome to ensure MonaLisa Touch is right for you.

Then, he develops a personalized treatment plan customized to your needs. Most women require about 1-3 MonaLisa Touch treatments with six weeks in between appointments.

During the procedure, you relax on your back while Dr. Kandinov inserts the MonaLisa Touch wand into your vagina. Treatment lasts about five minutes, during which time you may feel a gentle vibrating sensation as the laser works.

MonaLisa Touch doesn’t require downtime for recovery, so you can resume normal activities right away. However, you should wait 3-4 days before having sexual intercourse.

You may notice an improvement immediately, but optimal results can take up to a few months to appear.
