‘MonaLisa Touch’ for women with menopausal symptoms

The MonaLisa Touch uses CO2 laser energy to promote vaginal wall health by stimulating collagen. This is especially beneficial for women who have:

  • gone through menopause-50% of 64 million post-menopausal women have adverse changes to their gynecologic health
  • had a hysterectomy
  • had breast cancer 


Before and after images show a clear difference in the vaginal mucosa following treatment with the MonaLisa Touch. The increased epithelium and larger diameter of epithelial cells rich in glycogen restore metabolic balance and dynamics of the epithelium.

The small laser works by penetrating laser energy into the layers of the vaginal wall and stimulating collagen revival.


Italian research and development company DEKA designed and produces the laser. At the Raby Institute, Dr. Thurer performs the minimally invasive procedure in the office-with no anesthesia necessary. Patients can expect virtually no pain or side effects from the three, five-minute laser sessions.
