MonaLisa Touch is designed to reduce the effects of vaginal atrophy
Vaginal atrophy is the ageing of the vagina which can have a physical and emotional effect on the sufferer. Most commonly, atrophy occurs after menopause and involves:
- Thinning of the vaginal wall
- Natural elasticity is reduced
- Reduced blood supply
- Dehydration (lack of lubrication)
Symptoms of these conditions include:
- Incontinence and the need to urgently urinate
- A burning feeling or irritation
- Loosening of the vagina
- Pain during intercourse
Who can develop vaginal atrophy?
Women of any age after sexual maturity can experience vaginal atrophy. It can be caused or induced by menopause, ageing, prolonged use of the pill, traumatic birth, breast-feeding, scarring and severe damage or trauma. Trauma can also include cancer of the breast and body which cannot be treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy as it is not suitable for most cancer victims.
Treating vaginal atrophy with MonaLisa Touch
MonaLisa Touch is a non-surgical laser treatment which takes as little as 10 minutes to perform. The procedure alters collagen production beneath the skin by promoting the proliferation of cells. The laser treatment also restores strength and blood supply to the area which helps with sensation. The procedure involves the V2LR (Vulvo-Vaginal Laser Reshaping) laser which is inserted through the vaginal opening. Microscopic beams of laser light are then applied to the walls of the vagina, treating the tissue and mucosa. Over the ensuing thirty days new tissue and collagen will begin to generate which creates a tighter, stronger structure. The mucosa will also begin to rehydrate, restoring volume and elasticity to the walls.*
Most patients find this treatment reduces a majority of the symptoms of vaginal atrophy with little to no discomfort.
Why MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch utilises fractional laser technology including DOT Therapy which has been used for anti-ageing purposes for years on delicate areas of the body. This technology can also be tailored to your unique skin type which means that you’ll be receiving the best treatment for you.
