Monalisa Touch Q&A

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is laser therapy for the vaginal area. This revolutionary treatment addresses the symptoms of vaginal atrophy that can occur with menopause or other female hormonal changes. 

MonaLisa Touch is pain-free and non-invasive. Dr. Eden recommends it as an alternative or complement to hormone therapy.  

How can MonaLisa Touch help me?

When tissue in the vaginal region thins, it becomes more delicate and sensitive. Hormonal changes associated with menopause also cause dehydration in the area that leads to uncomfortable symptoms, including: 

  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Vaginal itching
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mild urinary incontinence

MonaLisa Touch can also address issues associated with lichen sclerosus. Discuss your symptoms during your consultation with Dr. Eden, and she can help determine if the laser therapy is right for you.

What is it like to get MonaLisa Touch treatment?

Your MonaLisa Touch treatment sessions happen in-office. They take just a short time and require no sedation, anesthesia, or numbing creams. 

You relax on a treatment table, and Dr. Eden applies the sterile probe to your vaginal area. It affects tissue outside and inside the region. You’ll feel gentle heat energy and pressure but no pain, so most patients tolerate the treatment quite well. 

The laser treatment stimulates your tissue’s production of collagen, a protein that adds strength and resilience to tissue. 

How many MonaLisa Touch sessions will I need?

The entire laser portion of your treatment takes just five minutes. You’ll notice some improvements after just one treatment*. However, Dr. Eden recommends a series of three treatments, scheduled about six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. 


You don’t need to take time off work or other daily activities following MonaLisa Touch treatments. But Dr. Eden recommends you avoid sexual intercourse and putting tampons into your vagina for two to three days following your session. This gives the tissue the time to heal and rejuvenate. 


To learn how MonaLisa Touch can benefit your vaginal health, make an appointment at the office of Elizabeth A. Eden, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., by calling or scheduling online today.
