MonaLisa Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive laser treatment for women to improve vaginal functioning after aging or other major hormone changes. The probe-like device emits a CO2 laser beam that gently heats your vaginal tissues to restore blood flow to the area and help you regain control over your pelvic muscles. It also helps your tissues form collagen fibers for tightness and strength.

After childbirth or menopause, you may notice some unexpected differences in the way your body functions. This is due to the major hormone fluctuations and structural changes that happen during these processes. The resulting symptoms can impact your day-to-day life, your sex life, and ultimately, intimacy with your partner.

How does MonaLisa Touch improve my health?

MonaLisa Touch improves many symptoms associated with declining reproductive health. Many of the following symptoms are associated with a condition called atrophic vaginitis that happens after your estrogen levels drop following childbirth, menopause, cancer treatments, or nutritional deficiencies.

MonaLisa Touch may improve or alleviate:

  • Vaginal dryness or burning
  • Dyspareunia (pain during sex)
  • Lack of sexual desire
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Tissue fragility
  • Vaginal laxity

Treating these symptoms may help improve your intimate relationships and restore your overall self-confidence.

What is the recovery like after using MonaLisa Touch?

After your MonaLisa Touch treatment, you won’t need to reserve any downtime for recovery. You can go about your day as normal after you leave Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center feeling more confident than you did when you arrived. 

Your provider may suggest that you avoid exercise and sexual activity for two to three days following the treatment. This helps minimize side effects like redness or discomfort, which should only last for a couple of days at most.

Am I a candidate for MonaLisa Touch?

Your provider at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center may recommend MonaLisa Touch to you if:

  • You have vaginal symptoms
  • Your sex life or relationships are suffering because of your vaginal health
  • You don’t want to undergo surgery or other invasive procedures
  • You’re willing to commit to multiple treatment sessions and annual treatments thereafter

If your provider decides that MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for you, they create a treatment plan based on your needs. 

If your sexual functioning isn’t what it used to be, there’s no shame in seeking vaginal wellness treatments. To find out if MonaLisa Touch is the best option for you, call Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center or book your consultation online today.
