The Mona Lisa Touch, fractional laser therapy, is the latest medical technology for natural relief of vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. It restores 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 without anesthesia in our office. Natural lubrication usually resumes within days of the first treatment. Dr. Kavaler performs the procedure in one of our comfortable and well-appointed procedure rooms. 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 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.
