How does the MonaLisa Touch treatment work?
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special CO2 fractional laser, specifically designed for this type of application. The procedure is carried out in a medical practice and usually does not require anesthesia. The laser application itself lasts less than five minutes! Typically, three treatments are needed over the course of 12 weeks to deliver the best results.
Is anesthesia required?
No, the procedure does not usually require anesthetic. However, if a patient prefers, an anesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment to help reduce discomfort.
Are there any risks?
Every procedure carries some minimal risks. However, MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive procedure performed under the supervision of a medical professional.
WHAT IS VAGINAL ATROPHY?
Vaginal atrophy, or vaginal ageing, affects in excess of 40 per cent of menopausal and post-menopausal women. The walls of the vagina become thinner and the natural elasticity and blood supply is reduced. The protective mucosa of the vagina can lose hydration and thickness causing a loss of lubrication. The changes in the natural pH balance of the internal environment have detrimental effects on the function and health of the vagina.
WHAT ARE THE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL EFFECTS OF VAGINAL ATROPHY?
The symptoms of vaginal atrophy may or may not occur simultaneously and may be felt as:
Vaginal dryness or itchiness,
Burning sensations and irritation of the vagina,
Fissuring of the opening of the vagina,
Pain during sexual intercourse (Dyspareunia)
The symptoms of vaginal atrophy can have both a physical and emotional impact on the patient, including affecting their intimate relationships.
PREVALENCE OF VAGINAL ATROPHY
In excess of 40 per cent of menopausal and post-menopausal women are affected by vaginal atrophy will experience some or all of the symptoms listed above.
In addition, younger women who have used the Pill for prolonged periods, breast-feeding mothers and women who experienced traumatic delivery and severe perineal repair and scarring may also experience these symptoms.
Around 60 per cent of breast cancer sufferers can also be affected by vaginal atrophy and unfortunately Hormone Replacement Therapy is not suitable for almost all of these patients meaning that there is no effective treatment for their symptoms.
EXISTING TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR VAGINAL ATROPHY
Existing treatments involve making lifestyle changes to improve vulval care and using therapeutic creams such as a non-scented barrier cream or topical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT - vaginal oestrogen cream) if not contraindicated.
The effectiveness of these current treatments is highly dependent on the willingness of the patient to adhere to treatment protocols. In addition, the effects of existing treatments are short-term in nature and the benefits are no longer felt if the patient discontinues use.
In comparison, the Mona Lisa Touch procedure addresses a number of the issues causing vaginal atrophy, which means the effects of treatment are long lasting and will be felt independent of any actions performed by the patient.
The Mona Lisa Touch treatment is of particular benefit for patients with a past history, or strong family history of breast cancer who may have previously be advised against using HRT and until now have had no effective treatment for their symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
About The MonaLisa Touch Treatment
Mona Lisa Touch is a new non-surgical treatment for vaginal atrophy that has been used Australia since 2013 by a select gynaecologists, urogynaecologists and menopause doctors. It counteracts the effects of vaginal atrophy with a simple 5-minute treatment that stimulates collagen formation beneath the vaginal skin, 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.

This is one of the most common feminine problems in women over 35 years of age which severely compromises their quality of life. There are various types and levels: from stress(laughing or coughing, lifting weight), urgency (involuntary loss of urine due to lack of control of the urination stimulus by the brain), mixed (incontinence from a combination of stress and urinary imperiosity) or from reflux (occurs when the bladder is so full that the internal pressure is greater than that of the urethra).
Embarrassment and shame prevent one from facing the problem, which one often bears with resignation but now there are finally state-of-the-art and minimally invasive treatments that can help resolve this problem.*
* Urinary incontinence is a complex problem that requires careful diagnosis by your doctor before being treated.
PAIN DURING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE (DYSPAREUNIA)
One after-effect of atrophic vaginitis is dyspareunia – pain during sexual intercourse. An atrophic vagina is thin, fragile, lacks elasticity and above all is dry and unlubricated. This causes pain during sexual intercourse with a series of negative consequences regarding the couple’s relationship which lead to a lack of sexual desire and uneasy feelings during intimate moments with your partner.
Dyspareunia can also be caused by pain in the perineal region caused by scarring of theepisiotomy or after a laceration from a spontaneous delivery.
Understanding the cause of the pain and using the latest generation laser treatment on the tissue is now the most effective way of resolving this symptom.
The drop in estrogen that comes with menopause or even during breastfeeding after delivery, causes a series of problems that have a severe impact on one’s social life and personal relationships. Among the most bothersome problems is atrophic vaginitis, which is the lack of nourishment and hydration of the cells of the vaginal mucosa. This condition causes a progressive thinning of the vaginal and vulvar mucosa which then becomes more delicate, sensitive and more exposed to trauma.
Vaginal dryness, burning and being constantly bothered are a result of atrophic vaginitis, which is often not spoken about because some consider it a natural consequence during menopause and after childbirth. Thanks to innovative laser techniques, this problem can now be prevented and resolved in a safe and painless way.
