MonaLisa Touch Frequently Asked Questions
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch is a gentle laser therapy that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal wall tissue. It restores vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. The MonaLisa Touch was first available outside the US where thousands of patients have been treated worldwide.
How does it work?
The MonaLisa Touch uses gentle laser energy that is delivered via a side-firing probe inserted into the vaginal canal. A two-part pulse targets surface (epithelial) tissue and deep (lamina propria) tissue to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization.
Where can I have this done?
The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure performed by Dr. Usha Mantha at Verve.
Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
How long does it take?
Patients receive three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, which each take less than five minutes to perform.
When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments that are generally spaced over an18-week period.
How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.*

Many of these issues trace back to thinning of the soft tissues of the vagina. As collagen and elastin deteriorate under the surface of the vaginal walls, your body doesn’t automatically regenerate this tissue, although it retains the ability to do so — if stimulated in the right way.
It’s also important to note that not every woman experiences the same symptoms, so it’s possible to go through the transition to menopause with none, some, or all of these effects.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch system from CynoSure® is a carbon dioxide laser device designed to stimulate the renewal and growth of vaginal tissue. Similar to cosmetic lasers that renew collagen and elastin in your face, the MonaLisa Touch system uses a specially designed instrument that delivers carefully controlled laser pulses into the vaginal walls at measured intervals to jumpstart tissue revitalization.
How does the MonaLisa Touch treatment work?
