About MonaLisa Touch
MonaLisa Touch is a non-invasive alternative to HRT for the treatment of symptoms related to Vaginal Atrophy.
It is a five-minute, pain-free procedure that has no downtime and is suitable for almost all patients suffering from the effects of Vaginal Atrophy. These symptoms can include dyspareunia, urinary incontinence, itchiness, burning, dryness, mild prolapse and laxity.
Most patients experience a noticeable improvement after just one MonaLisa Touch treatment, however a course of three treatments month apart is recommended. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following a MonaLisa Touch procedure with the only post-treatment instruction being no sexual activity for five days.
MonaLisa Touch was introduced into 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 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 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.
MonaLisa Touch is proving to be an exciting and effective solution for many women experiencing the symptoms of Vaginal Atrophy.
