Testimonials

Nearly twenty-four years ago I heard the words no woman wants to hear―you have Stage III breast cancer. I underwent five months of chemotherapy and a radical mastectomy. I am now 75 years old, healthy, and active, and happy to be here today. But the effects of the chemo are long-lasting and far-reaching. One of the side effects is the thinning of the wall of the vagina. My husband heard about the Mona Lisa treatments and I decided to try them because I had three problems that could possibly be helped. I am glad that I did. After the first treatment, I was very uncomfortable. There is mild discomfort for a day or so following the subsequent treatments, but the benefits far outweigh the discomfort. My sleep is no longer interrupted by trips to the bathroom during the night and I am able to enjoy sex again. The doctors and staff provide a comfortable and caring environment and are available and willing to answer any questions that may arise following the treatment. They will be honest with you if they do not think you will be helped by the treatments. P.H
After the first treatment, there was a noticeable improvement. The procedure has really helped with relieving and minimizing the issues I sought out help for. I went back for a touch-up treatment a year later after some after some of the symptoms had started to return. Downtime and pain were minimal. The staff at Dr. Brown’s office are friendly, knowledgeable, and take their time to answer any questions you might have. CH, Patient
After over a year of procrastination and research I had the MLT. Per my husband this simple procedure has changed our life. I am happy because, sex is back without pain, I no longer pee my pants and all itch from dryness is gone.Don’t be concerned like I was and put it off. Know for the first few days after MLT I merely felt warm down there that diminished after the use of Aquaphor Ointment and any itch diminished with the use of 1% cortisone cream. The Mona Lesa Touch will change your life and your partners life for the better. Patient
The number one complaint that brought me in was painful intercourse after menopause. My husband was so upset to see how much intercourse hurt me that he stopped trying. After menopause, when I felt ready again, I discovered muscle atrophy and lack of any natural lubrication. I was also experiencing bladder leakage when getting to the toilet. And my bladder leakage was no longer an issue after my very first treatment!! MLT has changed my life. I actually have natural lubrication. Intercourse is no longer painful and it’s spontaneous again. I could not be happier with the results achieved with MLT. MS

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1 | What is MonaLisa Touch?

This is a fractional laser treatment specifically designed to relieve vaginal symptoms associated with estrogen loss due to menopause or other factors. The treatment works to restore hydration, healthy tissue and sensation in the vaginal area.

2 | Who is a good candidate?

Almost any woman who is experiencing post-menopausal vaginal symptoms such as dryness, itching or burning, painful intercourse, urinary incontinence or recurring urinary tract infections. MonaLisa Touch is non-hormonal, so it is entirely suitable for women who have had breast cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment as well as any woman who wants to avoid hormone therapy.

3 | Will it hurt?

MonaLisa Touch is virtually painless. Some patients feel a little discomfort as the device is inserted, but most describe the treatment as “gentle vibration.” We treat the entire vaginal area, so we may apply a numbing cream to the external area before beginning treatment since this skin is more sensitive.

4 | Does it work?

Clinical trials results showed increasing improvement throughout the 3-part course of treatment and in the months following. While some women do see and feel improvement within a week or so following their first treatment, we caution patients not to expect immediate results. Long-term, however, most of our patients report they are both impressed and thrilled with their results.

5 | Why are 3 treatments necessary?

MonaLisa Touch is medically designed to produce continuous improvement over the full course of treatment, and in fact, the laser intensity is increased during the second and third treatments. Some women experience noticeable improvement after the first appointment, but for many others, results develop a bit more gradually. Getting the full procedure stimulates maximum healing within the vaginal area and gives the body time to respond by generating new, healthy tissue.

6 | Is the procedure safe?

Yes. MonaLisa Touch Laser device was cleared by the FDA in 2014. The procedure has undergone clinical trials in the US and the UK among post-menopausal women and breast cancer survivors, with results that demonstrate significant improvement of vaginal symptoms as well as overall quality of life. As women’s sexual health specialists, our doctors have evaluated the procedure and its success for patients before deciding it met their standards to offer to their own patients here in the San Diego area.

7 | What are the risks or side effects?

Among the many thousands of women treated worldwide, no serious complications have been reported. Temporary post-procedure side effects may include mild localized discomfort, redness, swelling, spotting, minor vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, tenderness, itching, or burning during urination.

8 | Is there any downtime?

No. Patients can go back to their normal daily routine, though we do ask that you refrain from sexual activity for the first 48 hours to give your body a chance to rest and relax.

9 | Can I make payments?

Medical insurance does not cover the cost of MonaLisa Touch treatment. However, we do accept CareCredit and other major credit cards for payment. You may also be able to use funds from a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) if you have one. You will need to check with your plan administrator.We require payment for the entire procedure at the time of the first appointment because this ensures our patients will get optimal results by taking advantage of all three treatments.

10 | Is there a guarantee?

There is never a guarantee with any procedure because every patient’s body is different and results may vary. However, we have had amazing results. In fact, the improvement many of our patients are reporting surpasses even the impressive results demonstrated in clinical studies.
