MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What does the MonaLisa Touch laser do?

The MonaLisa Touch laser by CynoSure® — a leader in the field of medical aesthetic treatments — delivers controlled thermal energy to vaginal tissue to reduce vaginal dryness, itching, mild urinary incontinence, and other gynecologic health concerns. The laser energy gently stimulates vaginal tissue to produce new collagen. As your body creates new collagen, vaginal skin becomes firmer and you regain lost moisture.

What symptoms and conditions benefit from MonaLisa Touch laser treatments?

After pregnancy and vaginal deliveries, some women experience vaginal laxity (looseness) that can cause pain and irritation during sex. Additionally, you may experience mild urinary incontinence. The MonaLisa Touch laser helps to restore vaginal tissue to relieve discomfort and improve sexual pleasure. MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments can reduce or eliminate symptoms from:

  • Painful sex
  • Loose vaginal tissue
  • Mild urinary incontinence
  • Itching and burning
  • Vaginal dryness

Many women experience a noticeable difference after 1-3 treatments, but Dr. Coy creates a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

What can I expect during a MonaLisa Touch laser treatment?

Treatments aren’t painful and typically take just a few minutes in the office. The MonaLisa Touch uses CO2 fractional technology to deliver thermal energy to vaginal tissue. Dr. Coy inserts a small probe into the vaginal canal to target the surface tissue as well as deeper vaginal tissue for rejuvenation.

You may feel a gentle vibration from the probe as it delivers carbon dioxide energy safely to vaginal tissue. Most women don’t experience any pain and only minimal discomfort during the procedure. Afterward, you may need to abstain from sexual activity or tampon use for a few days, but in most cases, you can return to your normal routine with little or no downtime.

How long do the results from MonaLisa Touch treatments last?

The results from MonaLisa Touch laser treatments typically last about a year, depending on the severity of your condition. After your initial 1-3 treatments spaced about six weeks apart, Dr. Coy recommends the best course of treatment to maintain the results you desire. You may benefit from yearly “touch-up” treatments to keep vaginal tissue rejuvenated and minimize symptoms.
