A New Approach to Vaginal Health

What is MonaLisa Touch?

When estrogen levels decline after menopause, many changes occur.  Millions of women experience changes in their vaginal health that interfere with their personal lives. Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited.
 
MonaLisa Touch Laser therapy is a simple procedure that takes less than 4 minutes.  It delivers both immediate and lasting relief.  And it’s clinically proven to work.
 
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 treatments 2 and 3.

What Women Are Saying About MonaLisa Touch

 “When I underwent the MonaLisa Touch
procedure I was a little nervous and after the
procedure, I came out almost bouncing off
the wall, saying I cannot believe, there is
no discomfort, such a short time commitment.
I first began to see results from the
MonaLisa Touch Procedure approximately
2 weeks after the initial procedure. “
~ Sara
 

“To find out that there was actually a laser
that in 3 treatments could possibly provide me
with what I hadn’t been getting in the last
10 years of trying.  I was ecstatic. 
I think having the procedure
helps me to feel like I can be in touch with just
being a woman again.  It can
really affect your self-confidence,
your self-esteem.  And so I think that was
a plus that I wasn’t really considering,
that happened.”
~ Lori
