With menopause, many women experience changes in their gynecologic health, including vaginal atrophy, dryness, itching, and pain during sexual intercourse.
MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser is a non-surgical treatment that safely regenerates vaginal tissues to reestablish elasticity and natural lubrication.
If menopausal symptoms are adversely affecting your personal relationships and quality of life, you may be a good candidate for the MonaLisa vaginal laser treatment at The Center for Women’s Sexual Health & Medicine in Miami Beach.
What is the Mona Lisa Touch® Vaginal Laser?
MonaLisa Touch® is a CO2 laser specifically designed to address the effects of estrogen loss in the vaginal tissue that occurs after childbirth and menopause.
Since 2012, thousands of women have been successfully treated with this in-office procedure that generates new collagen and elastin for enhanced moisture and vaginal health.
Laser treatments require no anesthesia, require less than 5 minutes treatment time, and involve minimal downtime. As the healing response is triggered with gentle laser energy, the vaginal mucosa becomes thicker, with better circulation, tone, and elasticity. Patients will benefit from three MonaLisa vaginal laser treatments spaced six weeks apart. Possible side effects are mild and may include temporary redness, tenderness and itching. Since there is no recovery, you can return to normal activities, but it’s best to refrain from sexual intercourse for three days.
What concerns does the MonaLisa Touch® Vaginal Laser treat?
If over-the-counter lubricants and estrogen therapy aren’t working, ask our doctors about MonaLisa treatment. This fractionated vaginal laser addresses a number of concerns, including:
- Vaginal discomfort caused by dryness
- Painful sexual intercourse, known as dyspareunia
- Urinary frequency not due to urinary tract infection
- Vaginal tightness and dryness
- Burning and itching sensation in vulvar or vaginal area
Studies on the efficacy of MonaLisa Touch show that women see significant improvements in the above symptoms after their first treatment, with continued
progress with each subsequent session.

How does the MonaLisa Touch® Laser Treatment Work?
The CO2 laser creates micro-lesions in the vaginal mucosa that trigger the body’s healing response. Over the following weeks, new collagen and elastin fibers are produced as the tissue regenerates, improving the symptoms caused by declining estrogen levels. After one or two laser treatments, patients should notice a marked change and improvement in their vaginal health. Since the tissues can lubricate themselves and are more elastic, painful symptoms are alleviated– sex becomes more pleasurable.
