Am I A Candidate?

Hormonal changes are a natural part of life. When women enter menopause, either naturally or because of cancer treatments or surgical procedures, estrogen production declines. The lack of estrogen can cause symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching, urinary incontinence and pain during intercourse which can profoundly impact your life. The MonaLisa Touch™ treatment can help relieve your symptoms by encouraging new collagen growth to restore vaginal health and functionality.

What is the MonaLisa Touch™?

The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative laser designed to treat vaginal atrophy, or genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) and symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching and burning that are caused by hormonal changes. The MonaLisa Touch uses minimally invasive laser technology to rehydrate the vaginal walls and restore their natural function. The MonaLisa Touch safely stimulates new collagen production to help restore vaginal health and alleviate discomfort caused by hormonal changes.

What conditions does the MonaLisa Touch treat?

Hormonal changes are a natural part of life. When estrogen deficiencies occur because of menopause, breastfeeding, hysterectomies, or cancer treatments, many women experience uncomfortable side effects. The minimally invasive MonaLisa Touch procedure can effectively stimulate new collagen production and alleviate symptoms like vaginal dryness, itching, irritation and pain during intercourse to improve the quality of your life.

How does the MonaLisa Touch treatment work?

The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special CO2 fractional laser, specifically designed for this type of application. The procedure is carried out in a medical practice and usually does not require anesthesia. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Typically, three treatments are needed over the course of 12 weeks to deliver the best results.

Is anesthesia required?

No, the procedure does not usually require anesthetic. However, if a patient prefers, an anesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment to help reduce discomfort.

Are there any risks?

Every procedure carries some minimal risks. However, MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure performed under the supervision of a medical professional.

What are the benefits of this treatment?

The MonaLisa Touch helps alleviate symptoms related to estrogen deficiencies and genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), a widespread problem among pre- and post-menopausal women. By stimulating collagen production in the vaginal walls, the treatment can restore the vagina’s function and eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which often become particularly acute during intercourse. As a result, patients feel more comfortable and their intimate relationships are enhanced.

What is the recovery like?

Since laser vaginal revitalization is minimally invasive, patients can return home to recover following the procedure. Patients should refrain from sexual activity for two or three days following treatment, but can otherwise resume their normal routines. Your doctor will give you specific recommendations to ensure a speedy recovery.

What type of results can I expect?

Most patients report a reduction in symptoms such as dryness, burning, itching and pain during intercourse, which substantially improves their quality of life. Though three sessions are recommended, patients will start to notice results after the first treatment.


“I walked into Physicians for Women with a gallon size Ziplock bag full of prescribed creams, suppositories, gels and plungers all hidden discreetly in a black bag. I was 55 years old and in the throws of menopause and had begun dating a 49-year-old man. I quickly discovered that sex was more complicated than when I was younger. Almost every month I was visiting my General Practitioner for yeast outbreaks, BV or UTIs. This continued for years.
I shared my frustrations with Dr. Grewal. She gave me options but added that her patients repeatedly had positive comments about the Mona Lisa procedure. I began the first treatments and have continued the yearly maintenance now for over 6 years. I threw the plastic bag away and don’t fear the complications from having intercourse. I married that man, and both he and I are thrilled with the positive results from the Mona Lisa procedure. In fact, my husband recommends the Mona Lisa almost as much as I do. My friends love the results. The Mona Lisa returned my sexual pleasure back to me.”
