How much does the Mona Lisa Touch cost?

Currently the Mona Lisa Touch treatment is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by many insurance plans, the average cost ranges from $650 to around $1000 per treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

To receive the maximum benefits of the Mona Lisa Touch treatment at least 3 treatments are usually necessary, but more or less may be required depending on the amount of restoration that needs to be performed on the vaginal tissue. These are important factors to consider when shopping around for pricing on Mona Lisa Touch, make sure that your pricing quote contains estimates for all three initial treatments as well as follow-ups to help ensure you know how much the treatment will cost in total.

Does the Mona Lisa Touch really work?

The Mona Lisa Touch uses a medical laser to vitalize the cells in the vaginal mucosa, which encourages the cells to make more collagen and improve the elasticity of aging vaginal cells. The procedure is minimally invasive and painless, taking less than 5 minutes of surgery time with no required recovery time so you can be back at your regular activities on the same day as your treatment.

Patients worldwide have reported that the procedure has given them the desired effect they wanted and that they are pleased with the results and the ease of the treatment. The procedure is recommended for post-menopausal women or women who are suffering from post-menopausal symptoms due to a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.

This procedure also has minimal side effects besides some discomfort in the vaginal area, mild spotting or bleeding, a watery discharge from the vagina, general inflammation and swelling or some irritation and tenderness in the vaginal area or a mild burning sensation accompanying urination. These side effects are rare and usually short term but should always be discussed with your doctor should they occur.

How soon after treatment is Mona Lisa Touch effective?

While the procedure itself only takes around 5 minutes the recommendation to ensure maximum effectiveness of the surgery is to have 3 procedures performed. However, many patients have noticed an improvement after the first surgery has been performed. It is also recommended that patients avoid sexual intercourse or any form for 2 to 3 days following the procedure. While the procedure is considered “permanent” it is recommended that you plan to come back for an annual maintenance treatment and a follow up appointment on the initial 3rd treatment within 18 months.
