MonaLisa Touch Q & A

Seeker Professional Aesthetics

What is vaginal atrophy?

Vaginal atrophy is a condition that causes the tissues of the vagina to become thin, dry, and less elastic, resulting in inflammation and pain, especially during intercourse. Vaginal atrophy most commonly occurs when your levels of estrogen and progesterone decline during menopause, resulting in a subsequent decline of collagen and elastin, naturally occurring substances that help keep your vagina healthy, firm, and lubricated.

Vaginal atrophy can also cause the pH level in your vagina to change, making you more prone to infections, while the loss of firmness and elasticity can result in symptoms of urinary incontinence.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a laser-based device that’s designed specifically for the treatment of vaginal atrophy. The device has a wand-shaped handpiece that’s inserted into the vagina. The wand emits controlled bursts of laser energy in a 360-degree pattern, penetrating the vaginal walls and stimulating collagen and elastin production deep within the vaginal tissues.

Collagen and elastin remodeling begins immediately and continues for weeks, helping your vagina rebuild its elasticity while improving your body’s production of natural lubricants and balancing your pH levels.

What happens during a MonaLisa Touch treatment?

MonaLisa Touch treatments are performed right in the office without the need for anesthesia or sedation. During treatment, you lie on your back on a padded exam table while the lubricated wand is gently inserted into your vagina. The 360-degree wand emission pattern ensures all the tissues are treated in minimal time. The entire treatment takes less than five minutes, and you can go back to your regular routines right away.

How many treatments do I need?

Vaginal remodeling begins after your first treatment session with the MonaLisa Touch system. For maximum results, however, most women benefit from a series of three procedures spaced out over a period of 18 weeks.

Is the MonaLisa Touch system safe?

Yes. The MonaLisa Touch system was designed to safely treat the sensitive vaginal tissues to help rebuild collagen and elastin and promote vascularization in the vaginal walls, restoring lubrication and natural pH balance as well as natural firmness and elasticity. Numerous medical studies have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the MonaLisa Touch system.
