When your body decreases its estrogen production due to childbirth, breastfeeding, or menopause, vaginal discomforts occur.

For more information, call or make an appointment online today.
MonaLisa Touch is a vaginal laser treatment that the doctors at My OB/GYN Specialists use to effectively remodel the walls of your vagina, enabling them to grow thicker, stronger, and more elastic. MonaLisa Touch places tiny holes in your vaginal lining to help improve healthy tissue growth and create new blood flow.
When you see your doctor at My OB/GYN Specialists for a MonaLisa Touch, your treatment often begins on the same day as your exam. Treatment starts with the application of a numbing cream to your vaginal opening. Your doctor then inserts a probe into your vagina where it delivers gentle and painless laser energy to the walls of your vagina generating a healing response.
For it to be completely effective, you need to complete three treatments of the MonaLisa Touch process given in six-week intervals. Each session lasts about five minutes.
The most common condition that the doctors at My OB/GYN Specialists use MonaLisa Touch to treat is vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy is both chronic and progressive and usually occurs with menopause when your estrogen declines.
Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include:
The symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy cause discomfort that often diminishes your sex drive because it leads to painful intercourse or dyspareunia, as well as problems with arousal and orgasm. Severe cases of vaginal atrophy also affect clothing and exercise options.
Since MonaLisa Touch eliminates the use of estrogen as a treatment option, the doctors at My OB/GYN Specialists offer it to women for whom vaginal estrogen isn’t an option, women who haven’t responded to estrogen therapies, and those who’ve been treated for breast or ovarian cancer.
Additionally, the doctors at My OB/GYN Specialists use MonaLisa Touch to treat the thinning and irritation of the vulvar skin, as well as both urinary incontinence and urgency often associated with the chronic condition known as lichen sclerosis.
