MonaLisa Touch is a gynecological laser tool that allows for the functional restoration of your vaginal tissue. When the gentle laser energy contacts your vaginal tissue, it stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein responsible for tissue strength, elasticity, and hydration.
The team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness determines if you’re a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch after an examination and review of your symptoms and medical history. The advanced laser tool is most often recommended to women experiencing the vaginal changes that occur from the fluctuations in hormone levels during menopause.

The laser treatment may also help improve mild urinary incontinence by strengthening your vaginal muscles for better bladder control.
MonaLisa Touch is a gentle and quick procedure the team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness conducts at the office. The treatment is so gentle, anesthesia isn’t needed. During treatment, the MonaLisa Touch wand is inserted in your vagina to deliver the laser energy to your tissue. The entire procedure takes 10 minutes or less.
After treatment, you may experience some minor discomfort, but most women can resume their usual activities within one to three days. You should avoid vaginal intercourse and the use of tampons, as well as strenuous activity, until the tissue heals. Dr. Shisler and her team provide individualized instructions for the fastest recovery.
For the best results, you may need up to three sessions with MonaLisa Touch set at four to six-week intervals. The team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness knows one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to women’s health and provides you with an individualized treatment plan that gets you the most benefits.
After you’ve completed the recommended sessions, the results of treatment should last up to a year. To maintain vaginal health, Grace Gynecology & Wellness recommends annual touch-ups with MonaLisa Touch.
