About The MonaLisa Touch Treatment
Mona Lisa Touch is a non-surgical treatment for vaginal atrophy that has been used Australia since 2013. It counteracts the effects of vaginal atrophy with a simple 5-minute treatment that delivers a precise amount of heat which stimulates regeneration of the vaginal tissue, promoting proliferation of the cells and restoration of vaginal wall strength and blood supply.
The Mona Lisa Touch procedure offers significant advantages over current treatment options as it addresses the issues that cause vaginal atrophy rather than simply working on the symptoms. The Mona Lisa Touch creates longer-lasting relief than current treatments and offers a new and effective option for patient groups who were previously not suitable for existing treatments.
MonaLisa Touch® Q & A
What causes vaginal dryness?
During your perimenopausal years, the time leading up to the cessation of your periods, your levels of reproductive hormones fluctuate dramatically and eventually decline significantly. When this happens, you can experience a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- Vaginal itching
- Urinary incontinence
- Painful urination
- Vaginal discharge
- Pain during sex
- Decreased lubrication
These symptoms cause physical and emotional issues that can be hard to cope with. They can negatively affect your sex life and make it challenging to achieve sexual pleasure. You may also be at increased risk for vaginal infections, as well.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
The doctors at Cosmetic Elegance Clinic use the innovative MonaLisa Touch laser system to rejuvenate your vagina and alleviate common symptoms of menopause.
The system creates microscopic holes in the lining of your vaginal canal that stimulate your body’s natural healing response. You produce new collagen and elastin that improve the health of your vaginal lining and increase your natural lubrication ability. Your vaginal muscles also become stronger, which can help relieve minor to moderate episodes of urinary incontinence.
To achieve your desired results, your doctor may suggest three to five total treatments you’ll schedule at six-week intervals.
Does vaginal rejuvenation hurt?
Our doctor can apply a topical numbing cream to the vaginal opening before inserting the MonaLisa Touch laser probe into your vaginal canal. The probes deliver painless energy to the vaginal walls that trigger the healing response.
Following treatment, you won’t need any recovery time and can expect to resume your normal activities once you leave your appointment.
Am I a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch laser treatments?
You may be an ideal candidate for MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments if you:
- Haven’t had success with estrogen therapies
- Can’t tolerate vaginal estrogen therapies
- Experience vaginal dryness after cancer treatments or menopause
Our doctor may also recommend the MonaLisa Touch laser treatments if you’re looking for nonsurgical options to improve the appearance of your vagina. This minimally invasive procedure is a great alternative to traditional cosmetic surgeries, and it offers effective results without downtime, scarring, or surgical risks.
