MonaLisa Touch Laser Procedure
MonaLisa Touch is a non-hormonal treatment for vaginal atrophy (the process of vaginal ageing). Some of the symptoms of this vaginal ageing process include the following: vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse (dyspareunia), a vaginal burning sensation and irritation, and splitting/tearing at the opening of the vagina. I have had extensive experience with this procedure since its introduction into Australia. I have the knowledge and expertise required to advise patients whether they are suitable for this procedure.
What is Involved?
MonaLisa Touch counteracts the effects of vaginal atrophy with a simple 5 – 10 minute procedure that has minimal discomfort, requires no downtime and provides relief for up to 12 – 18 months. A course of 3 initial treatments is required spaced 1 month apart. Patients can resume normal daily activities immediately following each treatment.
How Does It Work?
The treatment stimulates collagen formation beneath the vaginal skin, promoting proliferation of the cells and restoration of vaginal wall strength and blood supply. MonaLisa Touch can be used in conjunction with or instead of hormone therapy. It is of particular benefit for patients with a past history and/or strong family history of breast cancer who have been advised against using hormone therapy. The treatment is supported by published research.
MonaLisa Touch stimulates the body’s natural regenerative process to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This brings the ph (acidity) of the vagina to normal levels, improves the elasticity of the vaginal wall and overall the health an function of the vagina are restored.
