MonaLisa Touch is a laser treatment for postmenopausal vaginal atrophy, which is the thinning of the walls of the vagina caused by decreased estrogen levels. This can often cause vaginal dryness and burning as well as pain during intercourse. MonaLisa Touch is a simple procedure that is relatively painless and is performed in 3 sessions over the course of 12 weeks. After the first three treatments, patients only have to come back for treatment once a year for maintenance. Patients are typically back to their normal routine the next day and able to resume sexual activity within 3 to 4 days.
MonaLisa Touch is one of a few different options that is available to treat postmenopausal vaginal atrophy. It is most appropriate for women who are not eligible for hormone therapy due to cancer or underlying medical issue. It is also great for women who don’t like using creams or products that need to be applied on a regular basis.
