Frequently Asked Questions About MonaLisa Touch

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. The procedure will seem similar to your annual exam, and will likely be even quicker. Your healthcare provider will insert the laser into your vagina and deliver laser energy “pulses.” The total procedure time is less than five minutes.
A multi-site study was conducted by two leading Urogynecologists who are experts in the field of postmenopausal gynecologic 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 gynecologic 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 in our office. The procedure is typically performed by a urologist.
The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically is done under 5 minutes. The laser energy itself is virtually painless. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser tip insertion during the first procedure due to vaginal dryness.
