How it works
As a board certified gynecologist, caring for women in Brevard County since 1991 and a cosmetic laser specialist for the past 14 years, Dr. Kaufmann was chosen by Cynosure to be one of the first physicians in Florida to offer this life-changing treatment.
MonaLisa Touch™ delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization and a return to premenopausal vaginal health. This minimally invasive, painless procedure is performed in an office setting and requires no anesthesia. It is performed in three treatments, each taking less than five minutes, six weeks apart.
The MonaLisa Touch™ is designed to stimulate and promote the regeneration of collagen fibers and the restoration of hydration and elasticity within the vaginal mucosa. The laser is able to release energy through a special pulse, and the laser energy penetrates to a depth that stimulates the synthesis of new collagen which results in healthier vaginal tissue, increasing moisture and providing better lubrication. The effects can be maintained indefinitely with a single follow-up session every 12-18 months.
