The MonaLisa Touch is a treatment that involves a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal tissue. This revitalizes the cells in the vaginal mucosa (vaginal tissue) to make the cells procedure more collagen; an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health. This mini-invasive laser assisted treatment improves the state of the mucosa that lines the vaginal walls. Although the term “rejuvenation” may suggest it, this treatment is not aesthetic, because the beneficial effects of the treatment “rejuvenates” the vaginal tissue, restoring the functionality lost over time.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special CO₂ fractional laser, specifically designed for this type of application. The procedure is carried out in the office and usually does not require anesthesia. It does not involve incisions or sutures and the sessions last 15-20 minutes.

MonaLisa Touch does not treat vaginal laxity (also termed “loose vagina”). Vaginal looseness may be treated surgically with Vaginoplasty for severe symptoms, or non-surgically for women with mild symptoms. MonaLisa Touch is the gold standard treatment option for women with vaginal atrophy who cannot (or will not) take estrogen.
Yes, the special laser therapy of the MonaLisa Touch, can be used on the labia and vulva to resolve vulvar itching, burning, and dryness and to achieve a firmer and more youthful appearance of the vaginal area.

The ideal candidate for MonaLisa Touch treatment is a woman with vaginal dryness causing painful intercourse. These symptoms are traditionally treated with estrogen, but some women either cannot take estrogen due to a history of breast cancer or choose to avoid estrogen due to potentially dangerous side effects such as heart attack, stroke or blood clots. MonaLisa Touch provides women with another option to treat these potentially devastating symptoms.
Most women report slight localized discomfort following the laser treatment and during the first few days after the session. Many have reported to have resumed their normal routine after one to three days. During the healing period, it may be recommended to avoid intercourse for 2 days.
Patients should expect to come back annually to the Women’s Wellness Institute for a maintenance treatment in order to make the results of the MonaLisa Touch procedure last over the course of time. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Brady, call our office at (214) 238-5346 or fill out the form below.
We require that patients refrain from sexual activity for 48 hours during their recovery period following MonaLisa Touch. For more information on this treatment, call us today at (214) 238-5346 and we can answer all your questions.
The MonaLisa Touch restores the natural function of the vagina, which helps fight and reduce symptoms related to vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem that is common amongst pre and post-menopausal women. MonaLisa Touch resolves vaginal atrophy and can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. The interaction with the laser is, in fact, the ideal method to stimulate the collagen contained in the vaginal walls to restore rehydration and functional tissue. Its beneficial action can contribute to improve or restore self-confidence and sexual pleasure for women.
After treatment, most of our patients report a reduction in vaginal dryness, burning sensation and pain during intercourse, substantially improving their quality of life. These results are made possible due to the renewed stimulation of the mucosa which regenerates and “rejuvenates.” This process involves cells and tissues and requires a few weeks to be completed. Optimal results from MonaLisa Touch are seen 3 months after the third treatment.
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment at Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas, although the procedure calls for 3 treatments over a 12-week period. If you have additional questions about the MonaLisa Touch, call us today at (214) 238-5346.
