MonaLisa Touch is one of the most advanced cosmetic procedures for vaginal rejuvenation. This minimally invasive treatment uses a unique CO2 laser technology for reversing the effects of aging on the tissues of a female’s genitals.
Vaginal atrophy, also known as vaginal aging, is noticed in over 40% of all women who are in the post-menopausal phase or about to hit menopause. In vaginal atrophy, the vaginal walls tend to get thinner, and there are reduced blood supply and loss of natural elasticity in that area. It is common for the vaginal mucosa to lose its original thickness and hydration which ultimately leads to poor lubrication. Vaginal aging is also accompanied by an imbalance in the pH levels of the vaginal environment and this could have some serious effects on vaginal health and functioning.
MonaLisa Touch is a procedure that gently acts on the vaginal mucosa tissue with the laser stimulating collagen production. It has the effect of enhancing the functioning of the female genital area and also restores the right trophic balance for your mucous membrane.
MonaLisa Touch: How it works
Before understanding how the MonaLisa Touch procedure works, let’s get acquainted with the common symptoms of vaginal aging:
- Dryness and/or itchiness in the vagina
- Fissures in the vaginal opening
- Irritation and burning sensations in the vagina
- Pain in the vagina
- Pain caused by sexual intercourse (also called Dyspareunia)
The menopause period is quite a complex phase wherein the vagina undergoes changes like loss of tissue hydration and swelling. These changes ultimately cause uncomfortable sensations in the vagina. Vaginal atrophy symptoms could cause both emotional and physical damage to a patient and have a significant impact on their close relationships.
The MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation procedure utilizes an extremely advanced photo-rejuvenation technology developed on a cutting-edge system called SmartXide2. The treatment can correct and prevent estrogen drops occurring in a woman’s vaginal tissue (usually after childbirth or menopause) because it reactivates new collagen production and restores the original (pre-menopause) environment of the vaginal mucosa.
During the treatment, the CO2 laser technology gently works on the walls of the vagina with the aid of a scanner. It creates indistinguishable micro-lesions which are needed to trigger new collagen production and for re-balancing and reorganizing the vaginal mucosa elements.
The safe and painless action of the laser, therefore, helps in reactivating the proper functioning of the urogenital structures and also improves any symptoms of urinary dysfunction (stress induced incontinence). Further, the MonaLisa Touch procedure has no collateral effects which are typically associated with pharmacological therapies based on hormones. This treatment can be safely and effectively administered after a gynecological tumor surgery (ovary, breast, vulva, vagina, and uterus).
Effectiveness of MonaLisa Touch
There are different treatments like Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and the application of topical creams and lubricants that can be used for relieving the symptoms of vaginal aging. However, the patient needs to be extremely diligent in following the protocols of these treatments in order for them to be effective. Further, the current treatments are mostly temporary; so a patient will fail to enjoy the benefits if use is discontinued.
The MonaLisa Touch procedure is different from the traditional vaginal rejuvenation treatments in the sense that it addresses multiple issues that cause vaginal atrophy. The treatment offers long-lasting results that are independent of the patient’s lifestyle and actions.
Treatment experts suggest that MonaLisa Touch is especially beneficial for those patients who have breast cancer as part of their family history. These people might have been advised against the use of the Hormone Replacement Therapy in the earlier times and have had no alternative treatment to address vaginal atrophy. But with the introduction of MonaLisa Touch, there is much hope for cancer-risk patients too.

MonaLisa Touch is a natural and painless procedure for overcoming the problem of vaginal atrophy. It helps trigger physiological processes that mimic those used for delaying facial skin aging and similar phenomenon.
In the MonaLisa Touch treatment, DEKA technology controlled state-of-the-art lasers are utilized for regenerating the tissue fibers that get weakened due to aging. New collagen production is also stimulated by the treatment. With this method, it is possible to adjust the vaginal mucosa volume and restore vaginal hydration and elasticity in a safe, painless and efficient way. It is the D-Pulse (produced through a unique scanning system) that allows for the creation of any mass of tissue denaturation in the vagina with no impact on the surrounding tissue (the reason why it is also termed as a ‘fractional treatment’).
MonaLisa Touch ends up triggering a vaginal tissue regeneration mechanism that lasts for several weeks, but stimulation happens instantly and you can notice dramatic improvements post the first session itself.
While results are noticeable almost instantly, patients are usually required to undergo a cycle of four or five sessions in a gap of 45 to 60 days. It is important to know that the session count could vary from patient to patient and is dependent on the amount of vaginal atrophy that needs treatment. It is best to have a comprehensive consultation with your gynecologist as they will be able to correctly evaluate and suggest the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs.
Recovery in MonaLisa Touch
The MonaLisa Touch treatment for vaginal rejuvenation entails minimal risks for the patient. Most women who have undergone the procedure report that they experienced short-term side effects including slight swelling or redness. There is likely to be some discomfort, but it usually diminishes after just a day or two of recovery.
While healing from the MonaLisa Touch treatment, your doctor might recommend that you avoid carrying weights or activities like physical exercise and taking hot showers. You might also be given some other specific guidelines to speed up the recovery process.
