MonaLisa Touch®
When estrogen levels decline after menopause, two out of five women suffer from a variety of symptoms that can affect sexual function and self-esteem. MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall that stimulates a healing response and enhanced moisture levels in the vaginal canal. This procedure is therapeutic rather than cosmetic in nature. It is an excellent choice for women who are not candidates for or choose not to use vaginal estrogen therapy. Dr. Shannon Bradley is the only provider offering MonaLisa Touch treatment in North Dakota.

What issues does this procedure address?
  • Vaginal dryness, burning or itching
  • Painful intercourse
  • Feeling self-conscious or avoiding intimacy due to discomfort or a lack of sexual self-esteem

How is the treatment performed?
A medical laser is used to deliver controlled energy to the vaginal tissue. The laser stimulates the cells to produce more collagen, which contributes to rehydration, tissue firmness and overall vaginal health.

How soon will the results be noticeable?
Most patients feel improvement after the first treatment. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over 12 weeks.

When can patients resume sexual activity?
Most patients can resume sexual activity after two to three days.

How long do the results last?
Most patients continue to experience benefits with an annual treatment.

Patient Testimonials

I was experiencing extreme vaginal atrophy and unable to utilize any form of hormone therapy. It was so bad that even walking was uncomfortable and there was a danger of the delicate tissue tearing with regular activity. I was out of options locally, so when I heard about Dr. Bradley offering the MonaLisa Touch procedure, I decided to check into it. I am so grateful that I did! I noticed a remarkable difference right after the first treatment and I’m happy to be walking and working comfortably again as a travel nurse. Dr. Bradley has an amazing bedside manner and staff. I’m telling people this is the best money I’ve ever spent." -Anonymous Patient 

"I am a 52 year old nurse with 14 years of OB/GYN experience. I was struggling with vaginal dryness and a leaky bladder. After visiting with Dr. Bradley and researching the MonaLisa procedure, I had a treatment. I generally say, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" Since the procedure, I have not needed to use the vaginal hormone that was costing me $350.00 out of pocket every 2-3 months, and my bladder doesn't leak anymore when I stand up! I can't wait to see the improvement after the next 2 treatments!" -T.E.
