It may also a useful addition to a “complete mummy makeover.”

Find out for yourself what patients say about MonaLisa Touch

How does the MonaLisa Touch Laser (Vagina Tightening and Rejuvenation) work?

MonaLisa Touch uses a non-surgical fractional laser system, very similar to the laser treatments long available for facial rejuvenation. The laser works by optically splitting a laser beam into a series of very small dots that are aimed at the inside wall of the vagina. The laser pulses for less than a tenth of second, during which the intensity of the laser is carefully varied by a computer to match the characteristics of the existing vaginal wall.

At the point of contact, the laser dot removes a tiny area of tissue. This creates a pinhole around the diameter of a human hair. As the body repairs itself, it stimulates cells to create new healthy tissue at the site of the dot and the flesh immediately surrounding it. This process uses the same concept as facial rejuvenation.

The laser also works to heat the area between dots, stimulating the activity of specialized cells that create elastin and collagen – the building blocks of healthy tissue.

Vagina surgery with MonaLisa leaves rejuvenated, elastic healthy tissue with minimal disruption. Improved blood flow and tissue tone reduces pain, improves sexual and urinary function and may increase sexual gratification.

Will MonaLisa Touch work for you – are you suitable?

It is important to understand that not all women are suitable for the MonaLisa Touch. Each patient must have a medical consultation to discuss and determine their suitability prior to undergoing treatment.

How long is the treatment?

The treatment itself takes no longer than 15 minutes.

A swab is inserted into the vagina to dry out the inside as much as possible prior to the insertion of the laser. This is the uncomfortable part of the procedure. The laser probe is then inserted into the vagina. The patient will feel a low grade vibration inside the vaginal canal which is virtually painless for most women. This process lasts for around 5 minutes depending on the comfort of the patient, the probe is then removed and the treatment is complete.

Downtime – how long will I take to recover?

As the Mona Lisa Touch treatment is  painless, patients can return to normal daily activities following treatment. However strenuous exercise and very hot baths are not advised. You must also refrain from vaginal intercourse for 2-3 days to allow the vaginal canal surface to heal properly.

How many treatments are required?

Patient trials here and overseas have concluded that the best results (in most cases) are generally achieved from three MonaLisa treatments every 6 weeks.

  • Most patients see a significant improvement after their first treatment, but are encouraged to continue with the subsequent MonaLisa sessions, as this ensures the most effective and long-lasting result.
  • The results of the MonaLisa Touch are generally excellent, some patients have described the treatment as life-changing but the extent of improvement varies between individual patients.

How long do MonaLisa Touch results last?

Many of the symptoms treated by the MonaLisa Touch are associated with low hormone levels brought on by menopause. A continued lack of estrogen production can lead to some symptoms returning after a year. Under the advice of our providers, patients can have repeated vaginal rejuvenation treatments if their symptoms return.
