MonaLisa Touch Q & A

Trinity Women's Health

Why does sex hurt?

When your estrogen levels drop, the cells in your vaginal mucosa become dehydrated and undernourished, a condition known as atrophic vaginitis. Life events that may decrease estrogen include:

  • Traumatic vaginal delivery
  • Breastfeeding
  • Cancer treatments
  • Menopause

As atrophic vaginitis progresses, your vaginal walls become thinner, more sensitive, and also produce less lubrication.

Painful sex is a troublesome consequence of atrophic vaginitis and reduced lubrication. When sex hurts, you might lose your desire for intercourse, which can negatively impact your intimacy.

How can I reverse atrophic vaginitis?

The all-women OB/GYN team at Trinity Women’s Health use the revolutionary MonaLisa Touch® laser to restore your vaginal tissues and reverse atrophic vaginitis. MonaLisa is a CO2 laser specially designed to treat vaginal tissues. MonaLisa uses heat to stimulate the production of new collagen in your vagina.

MonaLisa’s healing laser also improves surrounding urogenital tissues. A series of treatments with MonaLisa Touch may relieve symptoms such as:

  • Laxity
  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Painful sex
  • Painful urination
  • Urinary incontinence

How does MonaLisa Touch atrophy my vagina?

MonaLisa’s CO2 laser works on similar principles to those used for facial improvement. The heat from the laser creates micro-wounds in your skin that stimulate the healing process. Your skin produces strong, new collagen that rebuilds the vaginal wall and surrounding tissues.

Over the next weeks, as your collagen remodels itself, your tissues become stronger, better hydrated, and better nourished. Soon, they act younger too, getting firmer, tighter, and better lubricated.

Is MonaLisa Touch painful?

MonaLisa Touch is a virtually painless procedure. While you recline comfortably, your Trinity Women’s OB/GYN professional inserts the MonaLisa laser into your vaginal canal through a special guide. The laser delivers 360-degree of heat throughout the length of your vagina, which triggers your tissues to remodel themselves through the production of new collagen.

How long does MonaLisa take to work?

The entire improvement procedure with MonaLisa only takes about five minutes. You start to see and feel an improvement after one treatment, however, patient's express over 90% satisfaction after a full course of treatments. Three treatments are recommended, at a minimum.

As your tissues remodel themselves with new collagen over the next several months, you can expect benefits such as:

  • Increased lubrication
  • Improved pH of vagina
  • Increased libido
  • Improved sexual response
  • Less incontinence
  • More confidence
