Patients are calling it “Life-Changing”. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse, or if you’ve been diagnosed with lichen sclerosus, you may be a good candidate for treatment with the MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser.

What Is MonaLisa Touch®?
The MonaLisa Touch® delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response by generating new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. This results in new vaginal tissue formation with more moisture, more elasticity (stretchiness), more thickness, and more resistance to infections. This entire process is done non-invasively and can offer excellent long-term results.
How is MonaLisa Touch® Used?
The providers at Horizons Health & Wellness offer the MonaLisa Touch® laser as an effective treatment for a number of conditions affecting women’s health. Estrogen deficiency is a natural consequence of menopause and is also caused by many treatments for breast cancer, endometriosis, endometrial (uterine) cancer, and ovarian cancer. Estrogen deficiency causes many structural changes in the vagina which cause negative sexual experiences for women by causing pain, vaginal dryness and tearing, and decreased genital sensitivity. MonaLisa Touch® is an effective, safe, hormone-free treatment for these symptoms, which results in SIGNIFICANTLY decreased sexual pain, dryness, tearing, stinging, and burning, and improved sexual sensation.

What is Lichen Sclerosus?
Lichen sclerosus is thought to be an autoimmune disorder that causes your immune system to attack the skin, oftentimes of the vulva (external genitals). As a result, you may experience intense inflammation, itching, and pain in the vulvar skin. The condition causes white spots or patches that may be smooth or wrinkled, and also can result in tissue loss and scarring.
Is your lichen sclerosus treatment not working? Your medical provider may recommend MonaLisa Touch® to treat vulvar lichen sclerosus.
$600 per treatment, the max cost is $1800 per patient. We do not charge extra if you need more than three treatments. Touch-ups after one year of treatment are $600 each. Most women will need a touch-up once every 12-18 months.
Two hours after the first treatment, I experienced a burning sensation on my outer lady parts. This I would rate a 6 for pain. I first applied ice for 10 minutes and experienced zero relief from that. I next applied the numbing cream that Dr. Aslami had sent me home with, and it worked immediately…zero pain. I didn’t need anymore ice or creams after that.
After the 2nd treatment, I drove myself home and felt fine and didn’t experience any pain. I did not need to use any numbing cream at home.
After the 3rd treatment, I went shopping all day, and walked my dog 4 miles!
I had light spotting for 24 hours after each of the treatments, requiring nothing more than a few (3 or less) pantiliners.
Dr. Aslami made me feel very comfortable and safe by explaining everything in detail before and while she performed the procedure. I love her and highly recommend her for this procedure.“
