The MonaLisa Touch system is a very effective way of restoring or rejuvenating vaginal and vulval tissue which is uncomfortable due to thinning, splitting or contracting.
Treatments are pain-free and take about 5 minutes although the appointments take about 40 minutes. This treatment is an alternative to treatment with vaginal hormone cream.
We only charge $300 for each treatment ($200 for concession card holders). A single top-up is needed about every 9 months.
A woman’s “genital area” includes the vagina and the skin on the outside called the vulva. Some women have genital area discomfort due to thinning or splitting. This usually occurs after menopause but may occur before then particularly with painful splits on the outside. These changes may lead to painful sex, frequent and painful urination, dryness or stinging on the outside tissue and painful scars.
The MonaLisa Touch system is a very effective way of restoring or rejuvenating vaginal and vulval tissue which is uncomfortable due to thinning, splitting or contracting. It frequently improves bladder use reducing frequency and incontinence.
Sex becomes comfortable and painful splits heal. It is also very good in women who have not had sex for months or years in whom their vagina has narrowed. They become able to start having comfortable sex again.
The laser procedures which take about 5 minutes are pain-free and only a slight buzzing feeling may be felt. Numbing cream is usually used on the sensitive outside area. It is done in my consulting rooms and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately following a MonaLisa Touch procedure. The only restrictions are no sex, bicycling, bathing or swimming for 5 days. You can have showers.
Usually three or four procedures are required about 6 weeks apart for the best result. Each treatment course then can last for about 9 to 18 months. A “top-up” treatment is recommended every 9 months when one or two top-up procedures are recommended. There are no known long term complications or bad effects.
This treatment is an alternative to treatment with vaginal hormone cream which will be all that many women will want. Hormone tablets swallowed or inserted into the vagina do not seem to have much benefit on vaginal thinning. MonaLisa treatment is perfect for those who will not use or cannot use vaginal oestrogen cream or for those in whom vaginal oestrogen cream has not been effective. Both vaginal oestrogen and MonaLisa can be used at the same time.
MonaLisa Touch laser therapy is an exciting and innovative way to be able to now offer treatment to a group of women for whom there has not been a satisfactory alternative.
