MonaLisa Touch Q & A

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is an innovative laser system that can safely rejuvenate your vaginal health. This procedure is highly effective at reducing common symptoms of menopause, including vaginal:

  • Itching
  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Thinning
  • Inflammation

These hormonal changes occurring during menopause can also make sex painful and reduce your sexual sensations.

Mona Lisa Touch can alleviate these painful, frustrating symptoms without surgery or downtime.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

Dr. Canby uses a slender vaginal probe that she inserts into the vaginal canal. The probe delivers bursts of laser energy to the vaginal tissues that Dr. Canby controls based on your needs.

In response to this energy, your body begins to respond by producing new collagen to replace the unhealthy tissue in the vaginal canal that causes dryness, irritation, and pain.

Over time, this new collagen plumps up vaginal tissue and stimulates natural lubrication to make sex less painful and sexual sensations more noticeable.

Following your treatment with Mona Lisa Touch, Dr. Canby may advise you to avoid sex for 2-3 days. Otherwise, you can return to your normal activities without limitations.

Do MonaLisa Touch treatments hurt?

Dr. Canby performs the laser treatments in a comfortable office environment. Treatment isn’t painful and there’s no need for numbing creams or anesthesia.

MonaLisa Touch treatments last about five minutes and Dr. Canby designs a custom treatment plan to determine how many visits you need to achieve your desired results.

Am I a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation?

Dr. Canby can determine if Mona Lisa Touch is right for you during your initial consultation. She reviews your medical history and your symptoms to ensure laser treatment is the best option for your needs.

You may be a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation if you’re postmenopausal and want to alleviate related symptoms, like vaginal dryness and burning.

Dr. Canby may also recommend MonaLisa Touch to address painful intercourse due to age-related thinning and inflammation of your vaginal walls.
