Mona Lisa Touch is a non-surgical treatment for vaginal atrophy that has been used in Australia since 2013 by a select gynecologist, urogynecologists and menopause doctors. 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.
The MonaLisa Touch is an innovational application in the use of lasers and a revolutionary treatment for women who experience vaginal discomfort and urinary tract problems that occur with menopause. Laser therapy has been used for many different medical conditions including skin regeneration, hair removal and cancer. Now this application can restore and revitalize the vaginal tissue without the use of hormones that is perfect for breast cancer survivors or hysterectomy patients who cannot undergo hormonal therapies for conditions like vaginal atrophy. Among the other applications of the Mona Lisa Touch laser, treatment for disorders of the genital is as follows:
- Vaginal atrophy (reduced collagen and elasticity of the walls resulting in thin skin that bleeds easily and may be painful during sexual intercourse)
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal dilatation
- Vaginal itch and irritability
- Discomfort and pain during sex (dyspareunia)
- Recurrent vaginal infections such as thrush
- Stress incontinence
- Scarring from tears in childbirth
- Severe pain during menstruation
Also, MonaLisa Touch can be used on the labia and vulva to resolve vulvar itching, burning, and dryness and to achieve a firmer and more youthful appearance of the vaginal area.
