The treatment is much the same as the examination that you experience during your annual pap smears. A speculum like laser probe is inserted into the vagina and systematically used to rejuvenate the lining of the bladder and vagina so as to stimulate the development of collagen and the restoration of more normal blood supply and lymphatic drainage to the area resulting in significant improvement in bladder and vaginal function.

The Mona Lisa Touch Vaginal Laser Treatment Experience
The purpose of the Mona Lisa Touch Laser treatment is to relieve menopausal symptoms including painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, itching and burning and painful urination. Also, many patients experience significant improvement in their intimacy as described by improved sexual experiences. Additionally, most patients experience improvement in bladder function especially patients who have previously experienced urinary incontinence.
During the treatment some patients experience discomfort which typically is related to their pre-existing signs and symptoms for which they are being treated rather than the treatment itself. In other words, the patients may experience the same or similar symptoms to painful intercourse while being treated. However, it is the pre-existing vaginal atrophy and dysfunction which is causing the discomfort not the treatment itself. Most patients in fact experience no pain or discomfort while being treated with the Mona Lisa Touch.
Yearly Mona Lisa Touch Treatments
Currently we recommend that patients require an annual Mona Lisa Touch treatment. The best answer for the reason is to protect your investment. Although you will be returned to normal vaginal health after 3-4 treatments symptoms will return over time related to the aging process and the underlying disease process. Studies have shown that the optimal time between maintenance treatments is twelve months.
The Mona Lisa Touch Experience
Patient sensations during treatment varies for every individual. Some patients describe it as being similar to the sensations of jets in a hot tub. Others have described it as a snapping sensations, warm pulses or pinching. Occasionally patients complain of the pain caused by inserting the vaginal probe much like the pain they have been experiencing during intercourse. The inner labia are more sensitive than the vaginal canal due to increased nerves. Patients who have had this tissue treated have experienced more pain and describe it as a snapping sensation.
Post Mona Lisa Touch Experience
Following treatment, patients have said it feels the same as it would after having intercourse. The similar sensation of recent intimacy.
Results of the Mona Lisa Touch Experience
Some patients have reported immediate results while others have reported that it was the second treatment before they experienced significant improvement. Following the third or fourth treatment most patients return to normal vaginal health.
Most American healthcare insurance policies do not cover this treatment. The Mona Lisa Touch treatment is considered an “elective” treatment.
