MonaLisa Touch Q & A

Grapevine Women's Health and Gynecology, LLC.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is an advanced laser treatment that safely and effectively improves some menopausal changes such as vaginal dryness, itching, painful intercourse, or mild urinary symptoms. The minimally invasive laser improves the integrity of vaginal tissue by increasing your body’s own regenerative properties.

The team at Grapevine Women’s Health and Gynecology may recommend MonaLisa Touch to patients experiencing symptomatic vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and mild urinary symptoms due to the hormonal changes caused by menopause.

In addition to menopause, similar changes in vaginal health may occur in women after childbirth or treatment for some cancers.

 

What conditions can MonaLisa Touch treat?

In addition to reducing vaginal dryness, MonaLisa Touch is also used to:

  • Relieve painful intercourse
  • Improve vaginal laxity
  • Decrease vaginal burning or itching
  • Enhance sexual pleasure
  • Treat mild urinary incontinence


How does MonaLisa Touch work?

MonaLisa Touch is a special laser that when applied to your vaginal wall stimulates the production of collagen, which is a protein that makes your vaginal tissue more pliable and functional. It also improves hydration for better health and lubrication.

 

What can I expect during treatment?

MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive, painless procedure that the physicians at Grapevine Women’s Health and Gynecology perform in the office.

During the procedure, the physician inserts the laser wand in your vagina so the laser has access to your vaginal walls. The entire procedure takes about five minutes.

Most women only need one to three treatments six weeks apart to obtain the desired results. The team at Grapevine Women’s Health and Gynecology develops individualized treatment plans for each patient.

 

What happens after treatment with MonaLisa Touch?

You may feel some discomfort for the first three days after treatment, but they resolve on their own. To help with the healing process, the team at Grapevine Women’s Health and Gynecology recommends you avoid heavy lifting, strenuous activity, and hot baths for the first three days after treatment. They also suggest refraining from sexual intercourse during this three- to seven-day healing period.

The results of treatment last for up to a year, and the team at Grapevine Women’s Health and Gynecology recommends annual treatments with MonaLisa Touch to maintain vaginal health.
