Menopausal Rejuvenation Q&A

What is menopausal rejuvenation?

Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life that marks the end of fertility. As your hormone levels begin to drop, you may experience a number of symptoms that affect your quality of life, including depression, fatigue, weight gain, and vaginal discomfort.

Dr. Poliakoff takes an integrative, comprehensive approach to your care during menopause and not only wants to relieve your symptoms, but also improve your quality of life. To restore vaginal health, he offers menopausal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch, an advanced gynecologic laser that regenerates vaginal tissue to improve health and function.

Am I a good candidate for menopausal rejuvenation?

Dr. Poliakoff determines if you’re a good candidate for menopausal rejuvenation after a comprehensive examination, review of your symptoms, and discussion of your health goals.

You may want to consider treatment with MonaLisa Touch if you’re experiencing:

  • Vaginal dryness or itching
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Mild urinary incontinence


These symptoms often develop as your estrogen levels decrease during menopause, which causes your vaginal tissue to thin and be less flexible.

What is MonaLisa Touch?

MonaLisa Touch is a gynecologic laser that helps restore vaginal tissue and health. The laser energy created by MonaLisa Touch stimulates your vaginal tissue to form new blood vessels to improve hydration and health, and stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein in your vaginal tissue that provides strength and resiliency.

What can I expect during treatment with MonaLisa Touch?

Menopausal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch is a painless procedure that doesn’t require any anesthesia. During your treatment, Dr. Poliakoff gently inserts the laser probe into your vagina and then activates the laser energy to produce the desired results. The entire process takes about five minutes.

After treatment, Dr. Poliakoff recommends you refrain from inserting anything into your vagina for up to four days to allow the tissue to heal. You should start to notice an improvement in your symptoms soon after treatment. To get the best results, Dr. Poliakoff may recommend up to three treatments that are four to six weeks apart.
