The Mona Lisa Touch, fractional laser therapy, is one of the latest medical technologies for natural relief of vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. It works by restoring your body’s organic response to sexual stimulation so that you can self-lubricate without estrogen products or creams. It is safe, effective and performed in our office. Natural lubrication may resume within weeks of the first treatment. Dr. Kavaler performs the procedure in our comfortable and well-appointed procedure room. The Mona Lisa Touch should only be performed by a licensed physician and only after a comprehensive pelvic exam.
Vaginal dryness can occur in women when their bodies no longer produce enough estrogen to lubricate during sexual stimulation. Postmenopausal women may have vaginal dryness that does not respond to over- the- counter lubricants or prescription vaginal estrogen products. Breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer survivors will often experience pain with intercourse that lubricants do not alleviate. For those women there is hope. The Mona Lisa Touch laser therapy is an office-based procedure that restores a women’s natural sexual response without using medications or hormones. It is safe, effective, and performed in our office by Dr. Elizabeth Kavaler, a urologist and uro-gynecologist, a specialist in female pelvic medicine, and only after a comprehensive pelvic exam and discussion.
