The MonaLisa Touch Laser is a innovative, hormone free treatment to relieve the symptoms of vulvar and vaginal discomfort brought on by menopause.
- Itching and burning sensation on the vulva
- Dryness, itching and irritation in the vagina
- Painful intercourse
- Painful or frequent urination
When estrogen levels decline in menopause, many changes occur. Millions of women experience embarrassing and unpleasant symptoms that interfere with their personal lives. Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited.
Why Does Loss of Estrogen Cause Discomfort?
Estrogen maintains healthy vulvar and vaginal tissue by creating normal lubrication, acidity, elasticity, and tissue thickness. The primary cause of discomfort in menopause is vulvar and vaginal atrophy, a condition caused by loss of estrogen. Without estrogen, the tissue of the vulva and vagina become dry and thin, causing irritation and discomfort. This can lead to painful intercourse. This can also lead to increased frequency and burning with urination.
2 out of 4 menopausal women experience vulvar and vaginal atrophy symptoms and these can interfere with intimacy.
The MonaLisa Touch Laser restores the tissues of the vulva and vagina.
The MonaLisa Touch® treatment uses a CO2 laser to stimulate collagen, elastin, and neovascularization, which recreates the thicker tissue seen before menopause. The course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks. Each procedure will seem similar to your annual exam as the laser is being used inside the vagina and/or on the vulva.
“After being diagnosed with stage III breast cancer at the age of 32 and undergoing a bi-lateral mastectomy, hysterectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and cancer fighting estrogen blocking medication, I though that I was doomed to a sexless life or having to suffer through painful intercourse. The MonaLisa Touch has been life changing. I feel more like my old self every day. The treatments are quick and painless with only a little itchy sensation in the days following. I would highly recommend the MonaLisa Touch to any woman struggling with vaginal atrophy.”

My name is ST. I am 52 years old.
I am the mother of two wonderful sons and have been married for 35 years. I had an abdominal hysterectomy in 2007. I still have my ovaries.
I came to Dr. Lane seeking help for the discomfort I was having due to menopause. Intercourse was painful, my vaginal tissues were so fragile and thin. I had no moisture what so ever. Normal daily activities were painful as my tissues were so dry. I was having trouble with odor because the normal vaginal secretions that keep you clean no longer existed.
I was miserable. My husband was miserable. We were not ready to give up our sexual life together. We tried every over the counter pill, herbal supplement, ointment, messy suppositories etc. etc. Nothing worked.
Dr. Lane suggested the Mona Lisa Touch Treatment.
I did my research and scheduled my first treatment for August 2015.
Dr. Lane and her staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. They explained the procedure thoroughly.
A numbing agent was applied, and in 15 minutes or less the procedure was done. Painless. I was given an ice pack to help if I had any swelling and a small cup of Lidocaine for pain (which I never used). I drove home 3 hours.
The first day after the procedure I was tender to the touch and a little swollen. A few ibuprofen and I was fine. I followed Dr.s instructions and went about my normal day with no trouble at all.
By day 3 after the procedure I had to remind myself of the lifting restrictions because I felt fine and of course the waiting period before any sexual contact.
The difference in intercourse was immediate. My tissues were not so thin and it was not as painful. We did not required much additional lubricant if any at all. Success! I couldn’t wait for the next treatment!
The 2nd & 3rd treatments went exactly the same as the first. A little sore and swollen the 1st day and continued improvement in moisture and comfort.
It is now 3 months after my last treatment. I decided to wait until three months had passed before writing a review and I am fully healed.
What a difference this procedure has made. My tissues are no longer thin and fragile. I am comfortable. Normal sexual touching does not cause me pain. I have moisture. I no longer have problems with odor. I am normal again and that is exactly what I wanted.
I have recommended this treatment to many of my friends and will continue to do so.
