MonaLisa Touch® for Relief from Menopause

Stop suffering. Now there’s a treatment that helps alleviate the painful symptoms of menopause!

MonaLisa Touch® is a minimally invasive laser technology that treats painful menopause symptoms by helping to restore healthy conditions in the vaginal and vulvar regions and by improving vaginal laxity. If you’re bothered by age-related vaginal concerns, our extensively trained plastic surgeons, Dr. Moises Salama and Dr. Bernard Stern, can help.

How MonaLisa Touch® Works

The MonaLisa Touch® procedure is quick, easy, and minimally invasive. During the procedure, a probe is inserted into the patient’s vaginal canal to deliver gentle, virtually painless laser energy to the vaginal wall to stimulate healing. The entire procedure usually takes only five minutes! Full treatment typically consists of three procedures at six-week intervals. Symptom relief can be experienced after the very first treatment, with greater improvement after the second and third treatments.

MonaLisa Touch® Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser Beam

Upon insertion of the MonaLisa Touch®, the laser technology emits a beam of carbon dioxide (similar to what is often used for facial rejuvenation) into the mucus lining of the vaginal canal. The superficial and middle layers of the vaginal lining then become coagulated (firming the area). Some of the intervening tissues are left alone to assist in the remodeling and resurfacing of the targeted area, creating a new lining and causing healthy rejuvenation of cells in the sub-mucosal tissue located under the lining. The treatment also increases the number of mucus-secreting cells, which can improve lubrication of the vaginal mucosa and restore elasticity of the muscular layer under the lining, leading to enhanced vaginal tightening.

You should not require any special creams or medication.

MonaLisa Touch® results can last several months to years, depending on each person’s experience and natural rate of vaginal atrophy. Maintenance is recommended based on this, with optimal maintenance treatments occurring every three – four months.
