The MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser that safely and painlessly stimulates your body to produce more collagen cells in the tissues surrounding your vagina. The laser creates controlled microlesions that trigger regeneration of healthy new cells.

Who is a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is for any woman who wants to treat the vaginal symptoms of reduced estrogen levels, such as dryness, discomfort, painful sex, and laxity. These symptoms may appear after childbirth or during your transition through menopause.
This treatment may be especially beneficial for breast cancer survivors, as vulvovaginal atrophy is a lesser-known side effect of chemotherapy.

Most women require two to three treatments spaced about six weeks apart, but the team at South Sound Women’s Center creates a personalized treatment plan for your unique needs. You may also need a follow-up treatment once per year.
During treatment, your doctor inserts a vaginal probe into your vagina that gently delivers laser energy into your vaginal tissues.
Side effects are minor, but you may experience some discomfort, redness, or swelling. While you’re free to resume normal activities immediately after treatment, you should avoid sex for about two to three days.
