MonaLisa Touch Q & A

by Stephanie Buck-Haskin, MD, F.A.C.O.G.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment. It can help with problems such as vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, and vaginal laxity.

Dr. Buck-Haskin typically uses MonaLisa Touch for menopausal and post-menopausal patients, but women of any age can benefit from it.

Where does the doctor perform MonaLisa Touch treatment?

Dr. Buck-Haskin performs MonaLisa Touch treatment on the inner vagina, the outer vagina, or both depending on your needs. The treatment is outpatient and takes place at Dr. Buck-Haskin's office.

What kind of problems can this treatment help with?

MonaLisa Touch helps with problems such as:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Loss of vaginal elasticity, when it occurs because of mucosal tone loss
  • Some types of urinary incontinence

Who should consider MonaLisa Touch treatment?

Most patients who make good MonaLisa Touch candidates are going through menopause, or suffer from problems like laxity and dryness after childbirth. This treatment may also be useful for women who suffer from vaginal issues due to low hormone levels.

How many treatments do you need?

Dr. Buck-Haskin recommends three treatment sessions for the best results. Treatments occur every month, making the total treatment time around three months.

How much recovery time do you need after MonaLisa Touch treatment?

There's usually very little recovery time required. Most patients relax at home for a day or two and then go back to their routine quickly.

Avoid hot water, strenuous exercise, and sexual intercourse for 3-4 days after treatment. If you experience any discomfort, pain relievers like Tylenol are usually effective. You can also apply ice packs to relieve pain and swelling.

When do you get results?

You'll likely see results as soon as your first treatment. The results improve with each subsequent session.

How long will your results last?

For most patients, results last for at least a year. To maintain your good results, schedule a yearly treatment with Dr. Buck-Haskin. If you're prompt about follow-up treatments, there's no reason to suffer from the vaginal symptoms again.

If you're suffering from symptoms like dryness, urinary incontinence, or vaginal laxity, the MonaLisa Touch treatment might be just what you need. You can make an appointment with Dr. Buck-Haskin via her online portal or call the office anytime for help. Please keep in mind that MonaLisa Touch treatement is only offered at the Great Neck, New York location.
