It really wasn’t until I realized that this was my body that was having the reaction due to menopause. I noticed a difference after my first procedure and then going back for the second there was a huge difference. Between the second and third treatment, a total opening, a softening, receptivity, sensitivity, that I haven’t had for years and years. Probably what MonaLisa Touch gave back to me, it gave me back confidence and made me want to date again. It made me feel like I can have a full relationship. I feel like I don’t have to hold back any more. I can just bring everything that I have back to the table, because I was holding back before and now I don’t have to.” ~ Melinda

And so I think that was a plus that I wasn’t really considering, that happened.” ~ Lori
