What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is an innovative laser that delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to soft tissues. The procedure is performed in our office and doesn't typically require anesthesia.

When is MonaLisa Touch used?

We sometimes recommend MonaLisa Touch to women for for a number of different reasons, but these are often the most important:

  • To improve vaginal laxity
  • To improve the tone of vaginal mucosa
  • To reduce urinary incontinence symptoms by restoring the functionality of urogenital structure
  • To reduce symptoms of vaginal atrophy and dryness

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

"MonaLisa Touch is the only procedure proven not only by clinical results but also by detailed ultrastructural and histological studies. Scientific publications of the results demonstrate the effective tissue regeneration achieved thanks to the unique combination of the wavelength of the CO2 laser, the structure of the D-Pulse, and adequate emission power.

The purpose of treating vaginal atrophy is to promote and recover pre-menopausal metabolic activity by means of a new synthesis not only of collagen, but also of hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans, and proteoglycans. This helps to regain hydrated mucosa ... thus reinstating all the functions typical of younger healthy tissue.

Recent studies show that MonaLisa Touch is largely effective in treating  mild urinary incontinence. The beneficial stimulation of vaginal tissues, due to the D-Pulse CO2 laser emission, re-establishes the proper functionality of urogenital involved structures. This allows restoration of correct urinary continence."
