MonaLisa Touch Treatment

mona lisa touch header

The FIRST to bring the cutting-edge MonaLisa Touch treatment to the Gold Coast, we’ve seen first hand, the dramatic and life-changing results it can achieve…

Do you suffer from Discomfort Down There? It could be Vaginal Atrophy!

Symptoms include dryness, burning, itchiness, urinary incontinence and pain during intercourse and can affect women of all ages.

  • Over 40 percent of menopausal and post-menopausal women are affected.
  • Younger women who have used the Pill for prolonged periods, breast-feeding mothers and women who experienced traumatic delivery and severe perineal repair and scarring may also experience symptoms.
  • Around 60 percent of breast cancer sufferers can also be affected. Hormone Replacement Therapy is not suitable for almost all of these patients meaning no effective treatment for their symptoms.

 

The Good News: Help is Minutes Away with the MonaLisa Touch:

The MonaLisa Touch is a ground-breaking non-surgical, non-hormonal procedure successfully treating the symptoms of atrophy in minutes. No pain, no side-effects, no down-time.

The breakthrough, minimally invasive laser procedure counteracts the effects of vaginal atrophy with a simple 5-minute treatment that stimulates collagen formation beneath the vaginal skin, promoting proliferation of the cells and restoration of vaginal wall strength and blood supply.

It’s a pain-free, walk-in walk-out procedure with significant improvements being reported by our patients after just one five minute treatment.  A course of three, five-minute treatments spaced at monthly intervals is recommended for best results.

Basically, we’re restoring the body’s natural balance and function by stimulating its own regenerative processes. We’re creating more hydrated and healthy cells and improving circulation and nutrient supply to the area and the results are life-changing

How it works

The MonaLisa Touch was inspired by the Smartxide ‘DOT Therapy’ laser, a highly effective anti-ageing treatment used on delicate areas including the face, eyelids and neck to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.

Further advances in the technology allowed laser pulses to be tailored to a patient’s individual skin type and treatment area resulting in the innovative laser treatment specifically designed to stimulate the natural regeneration of vaginal tissue for the first time.

Drawing on knowledge learnt over many years in fields such as Dermatology and Aesthetic medicine, MonaLisa Touch stimulates fibroblast cells in the skin which stimulates collagen formation underneath, promoting proliferation of the cells and restoration of blood supply.

In as little as 30 days, there is regeneration of new tissue and the protective mucosa recovers volume, hydration and elasticity. By restoring the natural pH balance of the mucosa, and targeting the causes of atrophy; symptoms including dryness, irritation and fissuring are greatly reduced or disappear – with no side effects or discomfort.

Improvements in the structure and positioning of the vagina mean external surgical procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginaplasty may be avoided in mild to moderate cases.

Women who have previously been too frustrated or embarrassed to talk about these issues are putting their hands up to openly sing the praises of this new treatment in the hope of helping other women. It’s an incredible vote of confidence and a wonderful message of hope,
Dr Hassan

The MonaLisa Touch was introduced in Australia in 2013. Over 4000 treatments have now been performed with dramatic results. The procedure offers significant advantages over current treatment options addressing the issues that cause atrophy rather than simply working on symptoms. The Mona Lisa Touch creates longer-lasting relief than current treatments and offers a new and effective option for patient groups who were previously not suitable for existing treatments.

While changes in patients are long lasting, the treatment can be repeated as required, as the natural ageing process continues. Expect complete tissue regeneration starting from the first treatment…

Most patients will feel an improvement after the first treatment with the full benefits generally achieved after three to four treatments. This is about using new technology to develop individual treatment plans tailored to individual symptoms to provide the highest level of care and the very best outcomes for patients

What is vaginal atrophy?

  • Walls of the vagina become thinner, lose natural elasticity and blood supply to the area is reduced
  • The protective mucosa can lose hydration and thickness causing a loss of lubrication
  • Changes in the natural pH balance of the internal environment have detrimental effects on function and health
  • Symptoms can be exacerbated by sexual intercourse

Among women suffering from atrophic vaginitis:

  • 75% reported that vaginal atrophy negatively impacts their lives
  • 65% failed to recognise vaginal atrophy as a chronic condition
  • 44% report that they did not consult a gynaecologist for finding a solution
  • 4% only recognized the common symptoms of vaginal atrophy

MonaLisa Touch provides an effective solution for women who have not responded to hormone replacement therapy or who are unable to use hormone treatments for a variety of reasons including breast cancer patients.

The treatment can be used as an alternate to HRT or in conjunction with existing treatments and is suitable for almost all women!

This is major health problem for women and their partners. Symptoms can be confronting and debilitating and can place a great deal of stress on relationships. It’s important for women to know there is an effective, alternative solution now available and that they feel safe in taking pro-active steps towards a better quality of life

FAQ on the MonaLisa Touch

What are the benefits of this treatment?

MonaLisa Touch allows for a functional restoration of the vagina which fights and attenuates symptoms related to the widespread problem of vaginal atrophy. Its action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity means we eliminate itching, irritation and pain. Results are almost immediate and long-lasting and do not require any lifestyle changes or downtime. MonaLisa Touch can help you feel like you again!

Is it painful?

No. The sensation is most often described as a light vibration.

Is it suitable for me?

The MonaLisa Touch treatment is suitable for almost all women of all different ages including breast cancer patients. The treatment is highly recommended to woman suffering the most common symptoms of atrophy including dryness, laxity, burning, pain during sexual intercourse and mild urinary incontinence. MonaLisa Touch is ideal if you’re looking for a less invasive procedure, compared to traditional surgical or pharmaceutical treatments however, it’s important we get together to discuss your individual situation and work out what the best treatment plan will be for you.

What results can I expect?

Patients report a significant reduction in symptoms including dryness, burning sensation, pain during intercourse and urinary symptoms and a substantial improvement in their health, happiness and quality of life. Results have been seen after the first five-minute treatment with full benefits usually reached after three.

Can it be used to treat vaginal laxity?

Natural yet traumatic events, such as giving birth or tissue relaxation due to a natural ageing process can cause the diameter of the vagina in some women to increase. It’s essential we evaluate the cause and the state of the vagina to exclude a prolapse or an involvement of the muscles. MonaLisa Touch can be used to treat cases where laxity is caused by mucosal tone loss.

Are there any risks?

There are some very minimal risks involved. The treatment is performed in our Benowa clinic and most patients will resume their daily activities immediately. Temporary side effects can include slight redness or swelling or some discomfort that usually disappears quite quickly.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your individual situation and the severity of your symptoms, we can work out the right treatment plan for you. Generally, we recommend a series of three five-minute treatments, 40-60 days apart, followed by an annual maintenance treatment. Together we will work on the best plan to get you back on track.

How is the recovery?

In some cases, women report a very slight localised discomfort following the laser treatment and during the first few days after the session. Most however, resume their normal routine after one to three days if not immediately.

How long do the effects of the treatment last?

Results are immediate, even after the first treatment and will continue to improve over subsequent months. The regeneration process lasts 40-60 days, after which we will advise if a repeat treatment is right for you.

Are there any contraindications?

There is no exclusion criteria for MonaLisa Touch other than those related to serious local or systemic diseases. This isn’t going to be a miracle cure for everyone but for the average woman, it’s an easy process that creates fast, lasting improvements and avoids many of the hassles of existing treatment options. In general, all women who are dealing with the symptoms of vaginal atrophy will benefit greatly from this treatment.

How soon can I resume sexual activity?

We usually recommend 3 to 4 days of rest before resuming regular sexual activity but we can determine this based on your individual situation in our private consultation.
