MonaLisa Touch for Vaginal Atrophy

Post menopausal vaginal atrophy is due to the natural reduction in oestrogen levels caused by the menopause. Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include vaginal dryness, irritation, mild bladder incontinence and pain during intercourse.

Mona Lisa Touch is a new non-surgical treatment for vaginal atrophy that has been developed over the last 10 years and began to be used in Italy in 2011. It counteracts the effects of vaginal atrophy with a simple painless 5-minute laser treatment that stimulates collagen formation beneath the vaginal skin. This promotes a natural regeneration process to restore vaginal wall strength and blood supply to the area within as little as 30 days from the beginning of the treatment. 

A course of treatment requires three, five-minute treatments spaced at monthly intervals.
