By gently acting on tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.

Real Patient Testimonial for MonaLisa Touch

I found Dr. Amersi because I was looking for a doctor that provided the MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Laser Treatment.  I am in my mid 50's, in menopause and heard that this procedure is amazing!  Dr. Amersi was kind, thorough and understanding answering all of my concerns and questions regarding how it works and it's effectiveness.  I've had 3 treatments and it's amazing.  The MonaLisa Touch changed my sex life, no more discomfort and pain!  I highly recommend the treatment and Dr. Amersi!  She has become my new gynecologist and I love her, her staff and offices too!
