MonaLisa Touch is a breakthrough treatment for vulvo-vaginal atrophy and dyspareunia

It is suitable for patients who suffer from symptoms including: 

  • Dyspareunia
  • Vaginal Burning
  • Loss of Lubrication
  • Vaginal Itching
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Vaginal Laxity
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Mild Prolapse

MonaLisa Touch is proving to be an exciting and effective solution for many women experiencing the symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy and Dyspareunia. MonaLisa Touch is a five-minute procedure with minimal discomfort, that has no downtime. 

MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body's regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This improves the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and normalises pH (increases the acidity) of the vaginal environment. In general terms, MonaLisa Touch improves the health and function of the vagina.

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 post-treatment instructions being no sexual activity , minimal physical activity and no immersing the body in water i.e. baths or swimming, (showers are ok) for five days.

MonaLisa Touch was introduced into Australia in January 2013 and more than 25,000 treatments have been performed. It is estimated around 1 million treatments have been performed worldwide. 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 a low-risk procedure that provides longer-lasting improvements than HRT. 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.

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 tissue. 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.
