What Is The Mona Lisa Procedure

The Mona Lisa Touch is a minimally invasive laser therapy used to treat vaginal atrophy, a condition that causes thinning, dryness, and inflammation of the vaginal tissues. It is often associated with menopause due to decreased estrogen levels, but can also occur after childbirth, breastfeeding, or cancer treatment.

Here’s how the Mona Lisa Touch procedure works:

  • A healthcare provider, typically a gynecologist or urogynecologist, inserts a special laser probe into the vagina.
  • The laser delivers gentle pulses of light energy to the vaginal tissue.
  • This energy stimulates the growth of new collagen, a protein that helps to keep the tissue healthy and elastic.
  • As a result, the vaginal tissue thickens and becomes more lubricated, alleviating symptoms such as dryness, pain during sex, and urinary incontinence.

The Mona Lisa Touch procedure is typically performed in a doctor’s office and takes about 5 minutes. It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia. Most women experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.

The Mona Lisa Touch is a relatively new treatment, and more research is needed to determine its long-term effectiveness and safety. However, many women have reported significant improvement in their symptoms after undergoing the procedure.

If you are experiencing symptoms of vaginal atrophy, talk to your doctor to see if the Mona Lisa Touch is right for you.
