Why would I have MonaLisa Touch® treatment?

Some menopausal women and those who have undergone some cancer treatments can suffer from a lack of oestrogen, which can cause dryness and thinning of the vaginal tissues known as vaginal atrophy.

MonaLisa Touch® is recommended for post-menopausal women who do not wish to take HRT; women who have tried HRT but did not find relief for vaginal dryness; women who have had chemotherapy for cancer, pelvic radiation therapy for cancer and women who have had hormonal treatment following breast cancer; women who have tried other treatments with no success.

What happens during MonaLisa Touch® treatment?

The treatment is performed in an Outpatient setting by a Consultant Gynaecologist. A unique probe is used to deliver laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue which stimulates the production of collagen, restoring the proper balance to the mucous membrane.
