MonaLisa Touch

If you are having the symptoms commonly related to vaginal atrophy, you have now a new effective option.

MonaLisa Touch Laser does not need any anaesthesia or recovery time.

It is simple, almost pain free. It promotes the recovery of genital mucosa balance in a safe and painless way, through methods similar to those used to slow down aging of face skin.

MonaLisa Touch Laser stimulates the production of collagen, skin water content and blood flow. It restores the normal properties of vaginal skin and normalises the physiology of the vaginal wall.

Since it increases fibroblast activity at the level of vaginal skin, it does reduce the laxity of vagina significantly. This is exactly the same way that laser improves face skin firmness.

MonaLisa Touch Laser is the most advanced vaginal laser rejuvenation system. It improves vaginal lubrication, eliminates dryness, heaviness and vulva and vaginal itchiness.

MonaLisa Touch Laser treatment decreases pain during intercourse.

New treatment for post menopausal symptoms:

For many years, there has been no effective treatment for creeping symptoms of menopause. The usual treatments are either ineffective or have been associated with significant side effects.

Lack of oestrogen after menopause would accelerate loss of blood supply subsequently causing dryness of the vagina. Loss of collagen and water content of vaginal skin would make bladder symptoms worsen. Recurrent UTIs and urinary urgency and incontinence are very common among women after menopause.

There are many options available for treatment of climacteric symptoms. Hormone replacement, Local vaginal oestrogen and gynaecological surgeries will address only one aspect of symptoms, while MonaLisa Fractional DOT Laser improves all aspects of symptoms from dryness and lubrication to laxity of vagina.

How will I benefit from the treatment?

Most patients experience a noticeable improvement after just one MonaLisa Touch treatment. However a course of three treatments a month apart is recommended. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following a MonaLisa Touch procedure with the only posttreatment instruction being no sexual activity for five days.


What is involved?

It is a fiveminute, painfree procedure that has no downtime and is suitable for almost all patients suffering from the effects of vaginal atrophy. MonaLisa Touch is a lowrisk procedure that provides longerlasting improvements and is better than the HRT procedure. However, it can be used in conjunction with HRT, as an alternative treatment for patients who are not suitable for HRT or for those patients who have found HRT to be ineffective.

How does it work?

MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body’s own regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This has a direct effect on the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and increases the acidity of the vaginal environment to more normal levels. In general terms MonaLisa Touch improves the function and health of the vagina.

Recent developments

MonaLisa Touch was introduced in Australia in January 2013 and more than 2000 treatments have been performed.

The feedback from the Australian doctors performing the treatments is that MonaLisa Touch is consistently exceeding their expectations. And for many of the patients who have experienced the MonaLisa Touch procedure, it has been life changing.

MonaLisa Touch is proving to be an exciting and effective solution for many women experiencing the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
