Enjoying Intimacy Again With MonaLisa Touch®
Struggling with intimacy? Vaginal dryness, lack of lubrication, and other factors can lead to serious discomfort that really steals your enjoyment and ruins the mood. But, good news: It’s not your fault and there is a noninvasive solution.

If you’re struggling with intimacy, you’re not alone. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, 75% of women experience painful sex at some point. At Trusted Women’s Health Center, our experienced board-certified OB-GYN Sidiq Aldabbagh, MD, and caring team understand what you’re going through. 

We now offer MonaLisa Touch® treatments conveniently in our Kendall and Miami, Florida, offices. It’s a remarkable noninvasive treatment to address common problems like vaginal dryness, burning, and discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Experts call MonaLisa Touch one of the best women’s pelvic health advancements to emerge in decades, and we’re proud to offer this potentially life-changing treatment to our patients. Read on to learn more about what the treatment is and how it works. 

How MonaLisa Touch works

MonaLisa Touch is a CO2 fractional laser treatment. It delivers a controlled amount of laser light directly into the vulva (the labia, clitoris, urethral opening, and vaginal opening) and the vagina (the inner flexible “tube”). 

MonaLisa Touch is the only treatment of its type, and it has been the subject of at least 18 clinical studies. It uses unique triple-stacking technology, allowing for repetitive controlled laser pulses with highly concentrated energy delivery. 

The laser also penetrates all the layers of your skin without causing harm, even the deeper layers that other lasers may not reach. The laser light stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin, important proteins that provide skin support, firmness, and tightness. 

This internal restoration process occurs gradually over about two months to help restore vulvar and vaginal tissue. Most women experience improvements after just one treatment, but for optimal results, we may recommend an additional treatment or two (spaced 40-60 days apart). 

After that, you can maintain your results with annual treatments. On average, MonaLisa Touch treatments take only five minutes. We use topical numbing to ensure that your treatments are comfortable and that they don’t disrupt your life. 

After MonaLisa Touch treatments, you can generally resume normal activities right away, but you should wait three or four days (we provide specific recommendations) to resume sexual activity.

Who MonaLisa Touch is for

MonaLisa Touch can help women who are struggling with sexual intimacy due to:

  • Looseness (laxity) after childbirth
  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Itching

Many women struggling with intimacy experience all of these problems, so MonaLisa Touch can be a real lifeline if you’re unhappy with your sex life and struggling. 

These problems are especially common in menopause, due to decreased estrogen. While MonaLisa Touch doesn’t impact your estrogen levels, it resolves many of the problems that low estrogen can cause. 

In addition, you could be a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). It can balance your estrogen and relieve problems like low libido, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and brain fog. 

If you’re struggling to enjoy intimacy like you once did, MonaLisa Touch could be right for you.
