MonaLisa Touch

MonaLisa Touch

A Novel Fractional CO2 Laser Therapy for Gynecologic Health.

When estrogen levels decline after menopause, many changes occur. Millions of women experience changes in their gynecologic health that interfere with their personal lives as a consequence. Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited.

Fast Simple and Safe.

MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is a simple procedure that takes less than 5 minutes. It delivers both immediate and lasting relief.

And it’s clinically proven to work.

  • In-office
  • Requires no anesthesia
  • Minimal side effects
  • No downtime
  • Symptom relief after just one treatment
  • Thousands of women successfully treated since 2012

MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response in the vaginal canal. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 18 weeks. Many women report symptom relief after the very first treatment and even greater improvement after 2 and 3.

Q & A: New Procedure that Patients Have Called “Life Changing”

Q: What happens during treatment?

A: The procedure will seem similar to your annual exam, and will likely be even quicker. Your health care provider will insert the laser into your vagina and delver laser energy “pulses.” The total procedure time is less than 5 minutes.

Q: Does it hurt?

A: The laser energy itself is virtually painless. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser tip insertion during the first procedure if there is gynecologic dryness.

Q: How soon can I expect results?

A: Many patients have reported that they experience relief right away. Virtually all patients have experiences relief by the second treatment.

Q: How long does treatment last?

A: MonaLisa Touch provides lasting results. A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief.* This can be done quickly and conveniently during your annual checkup.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy - Hysteroscopy is an outpatient procedure used to diagnose or treat problems of the uterus. It is performed using a thin, lighted telescope-like device inserted through the vagina into the uterus. It is used for:

  • Removal of fibroids to treat both abnormal uterine bleeding and infertility.
  • Resection of submucous myomas - Treatment of uterine fibroids that may be causing infertility. 
  • Endometrial polyps - Polyps are benign tumors that grow in the lining of the uterus. Hysteroscopy is used to remove them.
  • Edometrial ablation - A procedure used to treat heavy or abnormal uterine bleeding. 
  • Diagnosis of pelvic pain

Laparoscopy - Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that uses a thin tube which is inserted through a keyhole incision in the abdomen or pelvis to perform operations that used to require large incisions. Recovery times are shorter and patients usually have less pain with laparoscopic surgery. It is used for less complex tubal and ovarian conditions. 

Vaginal Surgery

Vaginal hysterectomy is used to treat a variety of gynecologic conditions, including:

  • Precancerous lesions of the uterus and cervix
  • Uterine prolapse - When supporting tissues and ligaments in the pelvis get stretched out or become weak, the uterus can lower or sag into the vagina, causing urinary incontinence, pelvic pressure and abnormal bleeding due to small fibroids or adenomyosis.
  • Endometrial Hyperplasia
  • Carcinoma in situ of the cervix
  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Chronic pelvic pain

Bladder sling procedures - These are minimally invasive surgical procedures used to treat stress incontinence.
