Everything You Need to Know About MonaLisa Touch® Procedure

What is the MonaLisa Touch®?

The MonaLisa Touch® is an advanced laser therapy that can alleviate certain post-menopausal symptoms and painful vaginal tissue. By delivering controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue through a small probe, this procedure can address any areas of pain by creating more collagen, elastin, and vascularization.

For many women experiencing discomfort or prolonged symptoms, this procedure is a great alternative to lubricants, moisturizers, or other over-the-counter treatments. The advanced technology of the MonaLisa Touch® is great for women experiencing these frustrating symptoms that interfere with their daily lives. It is designed to be quick, gentle, and extremely beneficial to your gynecological health.

What Can I Expect During the MonaLisa Touch® Procedure?

On the day of your procedure, you can expect the treatment to be relatively painless. There is no need for anesthesia, although you may receive some numbing cream to help. The MonaLisa Touch® device is a small probe, which, once inserted, will deliver controlled laser energy to the tissue walls. You may feel slight pressure during this.

Once the treatment is complete, there is no recovery time, and you can go back to your day. However, it’s normal to experience some soreness or tenderness after. The procedure itself is quick, but you’ll need to schedule three treatments with a six-week period between them.

What are the Effects of the MonaLisa Touch® Procedure?

The MonaLisa Touch® procedure is helpful for many women experiencing vaginal atrophy. In fact, the restorative results are noticeable for some women almost immediately after the procedure.

However, like any procedure, there are a few side effects to be aware of. Though many women report minimal to no side effects, you may experience minor bleeding, tenderness, or discharge.

Will I Benefit From the MonaLisa Touch®?

It’s normal for the vaginal tissue to atrophy with age. If you are experiencing frustrating symptoms post-menopause or from vaginal atrophy, you may benefit from the MonaLisa Touch® procedure.

The MonaLisa Touch® procedure can also benefit younger women experiencing discomfort from stretched tissue after pregnancy. You can discuss treatment with your Genesis OBGYN provider to see if it’s right for you.
